IU Southeast remembers 9/11

Chancellor Ray Wallace leads the crowd in a moment of silence. “This is really a moment of commemoration. We need to remember the people who lost their lives on this tragic event and we don’t need to forget that anytime soon. It’s a time for us to take a little time out of our lives to bow our heads and remember what that day meant,” Wallace said.

On the morning of September 11, 2014, a gloomy, rain soaked sky described this day of remembrance perfectly.

Students and faculty gathered together in McCullough Plaza yesterday to remember those who lost their lives during the 9/11 attacks, and praise those who fought, and continue to fight, for our country.

The country’s flag was lowered to half mast and Chancellor Wallace instructed the crowd to bow their heads in a moment of silence. Those gathered hushed as the rain let up and for just a few moments, and a calm swept across campus.
