The Colby community will mark the 10th anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001, with a candlelight memorial, a worship service, and a read-in that is the first in a year-long series of interdisciplinary events titled Reflections of Terrorism.
On Sunday, Sept. 11, at 3 p.m., a special service of worship sponsored by the Protestant chaplains will take place in Lorimer Chapel. Participants will share memories, consider the brokenness in the world in the aftermath of the attacks, and pray for healing and hope.
That evening, students will gather at the flagpole at 9:11 p.m. for a candlelight memorial service that will feature readings from student leaders, a performance by senior members of a cappella groups, an open-mic opportunity for thoughts and reflections from the Colby community, and a moment of silence.
On Monday, Sept. 12, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., in Pulver Pavilion, Cotter Union, faculty and staff will read from documents that reflect on September 11 and the way the events have changed our world in the past decade. Readings include obituaries, presidential addresses, legislation, official statements, news reports, and personal reflections.
