UNCW students remember September 11th in a special way. 2,977 American flags cover a part of the lawn on campus, for the lives lost that day. Students have done this for the past few years in remembrance. Organizers also handed out red, white and blue pins, as well as collected donations for a non-profit group that helps families of September 11th victims. "It's the Pearl Harbor of our generation so we need to remember it and know that we're not always as safe as we may like to feel," said UNCW student Bethany Hudson. Organizers said more members of the community outside of UNCW visited the memorial this year, taking time to reflect and share their stories. The memorial is open to the public until 7:00 p.m. tonight.
