Candlelight Vigil in Memory of Sept. 11 Attacks


Caitlin Bergman

A small group of Whitman community members met on the south steps of Memorial Hall to honor of the victims and families of those who lost their lives on Sept. 11, 2001. The event, which was hosted by the Muslim Student Association, began the vigil singing a verse of John Lennon’s “Imagine.” After, students discussed their memories of the day and the subsequent days after. Many students indicated that though years pass and vivid memories of the day fade, annual vigils allow them to mourn and reflect on the day.
