Today, the UMKC College Republicans successfully planted 3,000 flags to commemorate the victims of 9/11. All 3,000 flags were up by 8:00AM. The 3,000 flags represent the 2,977 people that were tragically killed when our country was sucker punched 9 years ago tomorrow.
Our chapter is more than proud to stand with conservative college groups across the county in pledging to Never Forget. I encourage participants to change your profile picture to show your friends the patriotism of UMKC. Pictures are attached for your reference. If you would like to see the tribute, please go to the quad at 53rd and Rockhill.
A special thanks goes out to the Kansas City Star, as well as various television news outlets for their generous coverage of the project. Please look for the reports on the news tonight and in the paper tomorrow.
In accordance with Code, the flags will be removed before night fall. If you would like to join us in respectfully removing them, members will be present at 6:30PM.
God bless America.
UMKC College Republicans, Chair
Missouri College Republicans, Secretary
