following statement was issued in response to inquiries
about the campus's Sept. 11 commemorative events:
UC Berkeley's day of remembrance on Sept. 11 honors
the Americans who lost their lives in the terrorist
attacks one year ago.
During this day the campus community will hold more
than a dozen events and observances, beginning at
5:45 a.m., when the bells of the Campanile will chime
at the exact time that the first plane crashed into
the World Trade Center in New York. The clock tower
will also chime to mark the times that the three other
planes crashed in New York, Washington D.C., and Pennsylvania.
At noon, the entire campus will be asked to participate
in a moment of silence.
Additional programs, hosted by student groups, faculty
and staff, will include an informal interfaith remembrance
service, a commemorative theater program, a memorial
concert of reflective music, an open microphone on
Sproul Plaza for personal expressions of thoughts
on the anniversary, and a candlelight vigil.
Coming together to remember those who perished and
to honor the heroism of those who tried to save lives
expresses our commitment to the shared sense of American
spirit on the anniversary of this tragedy.
