3,000 Flags Placed on Quad for 9/11 Remembrance
Herald Journal Monday, Sep. 11, 2017
Nearly 3,000 small American flags were placed systematically on the northwest corner of the Quad in a solemn memorial to those impacted by terror attacks 16 years ago. Just before daybreak Monday at Utah Sate University members of the Young Americans for Freedom club assembled and began to place the 4-inch by 6-inch flags in rows representing the nearly 3,000 people who perished as a result of terrorist attacks on the United States on Sept. 11, 2001. ... Taylor Cripe, who serves as the president of the Utah State YAF chapter, said the group had been working on a way to memorialize those who died in the four attacks and remember the families and first responders who were greatly affected by the days events. ... Currently the USU YAF chapter has 10 members and they hope to spread “socially conservative constitutional values” through their activities and events. Cripe said the club began in February 2017.
