Students Hold Vigil to Honor Victims of Boston Bombings
Published on April 18, 2013
More than 200 Susquehanna University students joined hands and lit candles to honor and remember those affected by the bombings at the Boston Marathon April 15.
The vigil, sponsored by the SU Republicans and SU College Democrats, began at 9 p.m. Wednesday, April 17, 2013, outside the entrance to the James W. Garrett Sports Complex.
After a moment of silence and brief remarks from University Chaplain and Associate Professor of Religion Mark Wm. Radecke, the group lit candles and walked a silent lap around Smith Lawn.
“As we remember and stand in solidarity with the people of Boston and all those who travelled to that great city to participate in the marathon, we are mindful of those around the world who live with acts of terror every day,” Radecke said.
