If you passed by Villanova Preparatory School on Wednesday, you might have noticed a few American flags dotting the softball field — 2,977 flags, to be exact. Row after row were carefully placed by a group of local students and adults, each flag representing one of the victims of the Sept. 11, 2001 attack on the World Trade Center.
