A Decade Later: Remembering 9/11
At 10:45 a.m. on September 11, 2001, the Juilliard loudspeaker called for an all-school meeting. Students emerged from practice rooms, many of them unaware of the attacks on the World Trade Center. Everyone was told to evacuate the residence hall and to remain on the street level for fear that other tall buildings could be attacked next. People read, snuggled, played games. Those whose cell phones worked called their families. The director of counseling services talked about the emotional impact of catastrophe. One student offered to form a prayer group. Another suggested that Paul Hall be opened to those who wanted to express themselves by playing music. This month’s Journal recalls that day.
