Cater Lawn will be covered with 3,000 miniature American flags from September 5-8 to mark the 10th anniversary of September 11th. The flags will represent the approximately 3,000 people died in the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.
Organized by Auburn’s SGA, the display will coincide with a presentation by Gary Marlon Suson, who served as the official photographer at Ground Zero for the Uniformed Firefighters Association & Uniformed Fire Officers Association (FDNY).
Suson will speak on his experience documenting the aftermath and recovery efforts at Ground Zero on Tuesday, September 6 at 7:30 p.m. in the Student Center ballroom. Many of his photographs will also be on display.
The event is free and open to the public.

I was a student at Auburn 10 years ago. That morning I got up to finish some Structural Analysis (of all things) homework. I flipped the TV on and saw the WTC had been hit by what was thought to be a small airplane. My buddy got to my apartment a little bit later and we watched in amazement and horror for the next few hours as the next plane hit, then the Pentagon, then Pennsylvania, then the towers fell. One at a time.
We must never forget!
