SMU reverses decision to ban 9/11 Memorial on lawn

Southern Methodist University has reversed its ban of an annual 9/11 flag memorial on Dallas Hall lawn after protests from students, reports Rob Shimshock in the Daily Caller.

The university rule is now that one-day displays may be placed on the popular north end of the school’s  Dallas Hall lawn; displays that will last more than one day (up to three days) must occupy the lawn’s less traveled south side.

An earlier version of the university’s policy referred to the memorial display as “triggering, harmful, or harassing”, sparking outrage. This language has now been changed.

The September 11th memorial is a display of American flags to honor those murdered in the terrorist attacks of 9/11.
