September 11, 2001: A Remembrance
Dear Students, Faculty and Staff,
Friday, September 11, 2015 marks the 14th anniversary of the attack on U.S. soil in which nearly three thousand lives were lost, leaving a great wound in our hearts and in our city’s skyline. Whether you suffered a personal loss during this tragedy or were touched indirectly by the events that unfolded on that day, I invite all of us to briefly join in a moment of quiet reflection on Friday.
The campus will mark the day with a ringing of the campus chimes for one minute at 8:46 a.m. and then again at 9:03 a.m. During these times we are asking for silence. As broadcast earlier today, you are also invited to pass by and write on the Memorial Wall at Roscoe Brown Student Center on the second floor.
As we commemorate the past, may we also rediscover the joy of the present moment and recommit ourselves to doing our part to building a more peaceful world, free from violence, hate and bigotry.
Thomas A. Isekenegbe, Ph.D.
