Candlelight Vigil For Students Lost In Honduras

Hopefully it won't be quite this dark on Low Plaza tonight

Hopefully it won’t be quite this dark on Low Plaza tonight

Tonight, the University is holding a candlelight vigil to honor Olivia Erhardt, CC ’18, Daniella Moffson, BC ’17, and Abigail Flanagan, a nurse practitioner at the Columbia University Medical Center and a General Studies student, who were killed in a bus accident in Honduras last Wednesday while volunteering for the Columbia chapter of Global Brigades. The event will take place starting at 6pm on Low Plaza, and is intended to help Columbia community members honor the memories of these three incredible women. The University is also flying all flags at half-staff today in recognition of this loss.

It may be ridiculously cold outside tonight, but don’t let that deter you from attending this event to honor Olivia, Daniella, and Abigail, whether you knew one of them personally or didn’t know their names until you heard the terrible news last Wednesday. We should all come together as a community to honor the good in those no longer with us rather than dwell upon the tragedy of their loss.
