Transcription

I was so I was in school on September 11th here, and so I just remember feeling so proud of how Virginia Tech kind of rallied as a community and then saw it again as an alum after April 16th, where it really reiterated to me that we're not going to suffer in a part that the University is something bigger than that. I remember going to a picnic on September 12th because it was already scheduled and we prayed most of the time, you know. I don't ever remember feeling some of the prejudice that other schools I think were experiencing during that time period about Muslims. I remember reading articles about people targeting certain people, and I don't remember that here. So I remember feeling really really proud about how Virginia Tech as a community was kind of responding to these huge world issues that were impacting us.
