Pepperdine University – September 11th “Wave of Flags” Memorial

 

Each year on September 11, the Pepperdine community comes together and places nearly 3,000 flags on the front lawn of main campus. Each flag represents a life that was lost during the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.

Faculty, staff, and students come together and spend nearly 2 weeks preparing the lawn. Once in place, the flags serve as a beautiful reminder to never forget that day, and to always be thankful for the great country we live in.
