Remembrance of those who Lost
Their Lives 16 Years Ago

YAF Chapter President Kathryn Brooks recounts the events of 9/11/2001.

Sept. 11, 2017 – Students, faculty, staff, friends and family members, led by students of Trinity Classical Academy’s Chapter of Young Americans for Freedom (YAF), honored the 2,977 lives that were lost 16 years ago on September 11, 2001. An American flag was placed on the lawn for each loved one, first responder, rescue worker, volunteer and community resident who succumbed to the deadliest terror attack ever on U.S. soil. Students also honored the four American officials who died in the September 11, 2012 terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya.

The 9/11: Never Forget Project ceremony included YAF chapter leadership introductions, Pledge of Allegiance, a moment of silence and prayer, and the playing of taps. This marks the fifth year Trinity students have participated in the 9/11: Never Forget Project, which is designed to create a community of remembrance, reflection and continued awareness.

Since 2003, students at more than 250 schools across the country participate in the Young Americans For Freedom 9/11: Never Forget Project each year. Today marks 16 years since the tragic terror attacks in New York City, Pennsylvania, and Washington, D.C. and is also the five-year anniversary of the attacks in Benghazi. Young Americans Foundation’s student activists understand the significance of these events to our country and hope to raise awareness about the importance of eradicating terrorism.
