University of Cincinnati Reflections on September 11

Date: Sept. 11, 2002

"A day to remember - A day to reflect."

An overnight watch, an interfaith walk for peace and pause for reflection with an address from University of Cincinnati President Joseph A. Steger were all part of the university observances of Sept. 11, as the entire community was invited to join in prayers and meditation on this tragic anniversary.

The following reports are extended coverage of the university-sponsored observances.

Night Watch

Night Watch Stands Guard Through the Morning
Around the nation the night of Sept. 10, people whispered a prayer for peace, knowing that their sleep would be anything but peaceful overnight. At the University of Cincinnati Hillel Jewish Student Center, religious and civic leaders, UC students, administrators and faculty, and other attendees of different faiths, nationalities and race, all stood watch through the uneasy night.
