Remembering Sept. 11th

As the first anniversary of Sept. 11 – the day of the terrorist attacks on the U.S. – approaches, no one need be alone with difficult feelings like grief, anger or fear. Several U.Va. and community events aim to bring people together to remember and express healing and unity.

A University-wide ceremony on Remembering Sept. 11 will be held on that date, 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., in University Hall.

Focusing on the lessons of Sept. 11, the ceremony will incorporate original music, readings, poetry and interfaith prayers. The program, planned by a broad spectrum of community and University representatives, is intended to provide a time and space to remember those who died and to reflect on the myriad ways we all were changed by those events.

Outside U-Hall before the ceremony, uniformed police, fire fighters and emergency medical technicians will encircle the building or stand at attention at its doors, establishing a protective ring around the ceremony site.

U.Va. students will distribute Ribbons of Remembrance that attendees can use for recording feelings or writing messages. After the ceremony, the ribbons will be collected and displayed during the candlelight vigil that evening.

U.Va. speakers will include President John T. Casteen III; Student Council President Micah Schwartz; Marcia Day Childress, co-director, Humanities in Medicine; and Abdulaziz Sachedina, professor of religious studies.

University Transit Service will provide additional bus service from Central Grounds and the Health System to give employees and students easy transportation to and from U-Hall.
