I could not be more proud to be a student at The George Washington University as the candlelight vigil, held on the Quad to remember September 11, was the most beautiful experience I have had at GW in the last three years. Never have I felt more unified with my fellow students, both as my peers and as my fellow Americans. The speech given by President Stephen Joel Trachtenberg was simple, eloquent and moving. When the two minutes of silence where called, not a cell phone rang nor a whisper hushed.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank the GW community for helping to make this vigil so meaningful to me. To those who organized it, you outdid yourselves.
I am so grateful that three years ago I chose to go to a school in the heart of D.C. – a community that has truly touched my heart.
