Remembering September 11
It was a mild late-summer morning, much like the year before. Some 100 students, faculty and staff came together at the flagpole near Westlands for a moment of silence at 8:46 — the time the first plane struck the World Trade Center. Then a guard lowered the flag to half staff, while Isaac Alderson ’05 played the uilleann pipes, an instrument with a haunting sound similar to the bagpipe. The silence was barely broken, when all returned to their daily activities.
