Memorial Service

As I was walking up to the pedestrian mall, I seen the colorful beams of light shining on the poles of Old Main.  I stood there listening to someone speak about the Holocaust and introduced a man.  He read us a prayer in Hebrew and then translated it into English.  After he was finished speaking, they handed out small candles to light so we could stand and remember the Holocaust survivers.  I wish the ceremony was longer.  I thought it was going to be more informative about the Holocaust but it was a quick 10 or 15 minutes.  The memorial was still meaningful.

  1. Frank would be proud. Sometimes a music piece or an event might be just that . . . transitory, like a prayer.
