9/11 tribute flap: SMU changes policy saying displays can be 'triggering, harmful'

9/11 tribute flap: SMU changes policy saying displays can be 'triggering, harmful' | 03 Aug 2017 | Southern Methodist University is making students move an annual tribute to the victims of 9/11 because it might be "triggering" to other students. Texas Gov. Greg Abbott appealed Wednesday to Southern Methodist University to reverse a new policy decision that is forcing a change in location on campus for the annual 9/11 memorial display of nearly 3,000 American flags by a student group. The tribute of nearly 3,000 small flags...are traditionally displayed on SMU's Dallas Hall lawn, according to the campus chapter of Young Americans for Freedom, which sponsors the memorial. Then last month, SMU decided to prohibit displays on that prime site, saying the university "respects the right of all members of the community to avoid messages that are triggering, harmful, or harassing."
