9-11 memorial

This afternoon Saint Joseph's College had a memorial commemoration of the tenth anniversary of the 9-11 terroist attacks. After an opening prayer and the Pledge of Allegence, the president of the College, Dr Riegelnegg, talked for a few minutes, followed by some remarks from L.E. Buzz Koehler, Chief of the Rensselaer Volunteer Fire Department.
A reading from the Letter to the Romans, the college choir rendition of the National Anthem, and a reading from Habakkuk followed. A moment of silence and taps concluded the event.

Students had placed 2977 small flags in the lawn in front Halleck Center, one for each life lost in the attacks.
