University lends shoulders to lean on

Two participants at the U-M vigil held Sept. 11 console each other in the face of tragedy. An estimated 15,000 people attended the vigil on the Diag. Vigil participants shared collective feelings of grief, shock and anger after the terrorist attacks against the nation. Officials from the University and community leaders spoke to the crowd and urged people to remain united and to look out for one another. Holding lit candles, participants observed a moment of silence in respect for the victims of the terrorist attacks. (Photo by Martin Vloet, U-M Photo Services)
