At 11:00 today, the College of Mount Saint Vincent will observe one minute of silence and prayer announced by President Obama in national lament for the attempted assassination and mass murder in Arizona. The tower bell will chime.
May we pray that some comfort will come to those who are so gravely injured, those who died, and all those who love them. And faced with this atrocity, may the people of our nation recommit themselves in peace and justice to living our highest ideals.
