Students to Host 9/11 Vigil on Homewood Campus

Several undergraduate student groups on the Homewood campus of The Johns Hopkins University will sponsor a Johns Hopkins 9/11 Memorial Vigil at 7 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 11. The event honoring the victims of the 2001 terror attacks will take place on the campus's Keyser Quadrangle between Gilman Hall and the Eisenhower Library, at 3400 N. Charles St. in Baltimore.

The vigil will feature an illuminated display of two "towers of light," representing the World Trade Center towers in New York City, and a moment of silence followed by the lighting of hundreds of candles on the flag-draped quad. Elected officials as well as representatives from the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences and the university's Interfaith Center are scheduled to speak.

The event is co-sponsored by the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies, the College Republicans, the College Democrats, the Milton S. Eisenhower Symposium, the Foreign Affairs Symposium, the Student Council, the Office of Student Life, Skytech Lighting, and the HSA Programming Collaboration Committee.

"The collective memory of 9/11 unites us all," said event organizer Marc Goldwein, a junior and a Foundation for the Defense of Democracies fellow. "We were brought together in tragedy, and now we must remember the victims of this terrible act and honor the heroes of that grave day."

The vigil is open to the public. The students will be collecting canned goods for care packages for troops overseas. For information, contact Goldwein at 610-574-8004, or marc@goldwein.net.
