UMass Dartmouth Holds Vigil For Boston

Ferdinand1977,flickr

Close to 300 students and faculty members joined hands at UMass Dartmouth late Tuesday afternoon in the shadow of the bell tower for a vigil in memory of those who lost their lives in the Boston marathon bombing.

Chancellor Divina Grossman called for reflection and community in the wake of Monday’s attack. Professor Royal Hartigan of the music department recited a Boston-inspired poem and Professor Zhou closed the vigil with a rendition of “Amazing Grace”.

The University’s chaplain, the Rev. David Frederici, said the message sent out was that community will not be defined by evil and tragedy, but by hope, compassion, love and strength.
