9-11 Memorial

September 11, 2022

On Sunday (Sept. 11th), Michigan Tech students from the Young Americans for Freedom (YAF) organization set up murals and American flags for each citizen who was killed in the 9/11/2001 attacks. This annual YAF event commemorates 2,977 people killed in coordinated terrorist attacks by the Islamic terrorist group al-Qaeda. It was heartwarming to see so many YAF students setting up the flags on the Walker Lawn between 8 am and 9:30 am. The flags were taken down at 6:30 pm. Many other Michigan Tech students stopped by and had friendly conversations with YAF students.
