Seven years later, Wake Forest still remembers 9/11 victims


September 9, 2008

The Wake Forest University Student Government has planned several activities throughout the day on Sept. 11 to remember and honor the victims of what has been called the worst terrorist attack on American soil in U.S. history.

At 8:45 a.m., the bells of Wait Chapel will toll in remembrance of the attack.

At 11 a.m., in Davis Chapel, Wake Forest Chaplain Tim Auman will give a short reflection on the tragedy.

Throughout the day, Davis Chapel and both the Interfaith and Meditation Rooms in Benson University Center will be open for individuals to use for personal reflection.  At these locations, individuals can also pick up memorial ribbons to wear and write notes of reflection in remembrance books.

At 6:30 p.m., those present for the Student Life Forum in Brendle Recital Hall will honor victims and their families with a moment of silence.
