Thousands of flags put on display at Radford University in honor of 9/11
RADFORD, Va. - Before the sun rose Wednesday, people gathered around the lawn outside Muse Hall at Radford University as a box filled with thousands of small American flags was opened. The flags, one for each of the 2,977 people who died during the September 11 attacks, were placed in rows around the edge of the lawn. "I think our chapter as a whole is just really glad that Radford University allowed us to do this," Radford University Young Americans Foundation chapter member Haleigh Williams said. "They need to know why we honor the fallen and why it's important to our country to remember our history," Maxwell said. I think it's a great way to remember those that died as innocent victims that day and it's a good way for us to come together as a community," Maxwell said.
