A Moment of Silence
Written by Bwog Staff
Members of the Columbia community gathered on Low steps this morning to remember 9/11. Following brief remarks by Jewelnel Davis, the University Chaplain, participants placed white flowers in the nearby fountains. Other speakers then recalled the names of Columbia alumni and family who were lost on September 11, 2001. Everyone sat in silence for 13 minutes until 10:28, when the second tower fell. The chapel bells tolled, and those gathered quietly dispersed.
