Pulling of 9/11 flags must be condemned

The Middlebury College community should condemn with one voice today’s desecration by several individuals of the Mead Chapel flag memorial, which was created by college Republicans and Democrats in honor of those lost on 9/11. In the hours after this act of desecration, the Middlebury Campus has reported that five protestors placed the 2,977 miniature flags into black trash bags. No cause, no fight for social justice, no thirst to right past wrongs can justify such a callous, thoughtless act. Shame on these perpetrators. May the college identify them and hold them responsible, with vigor and moral authority.
