Lesley Community comes together to reflect on the tragedy and support one another
Wednesday, April 17, 2013
A large crowd of students, faculty and staff congregated outside the Student Center and shared reflections, cried together, and offered words of hope as the community grappled with the tragic events that occurred in Boston on Marathon Monday.
“Sometimes it’s just good to be together with other people,” Lesley President Joseph B. Moore said to the group as he invited people to share their thoughts.
At the close of the vigil, Lesley’s a cappella group, Harmogeddon, gave a stirring performance of Coldplay’s “Fix You.”
In the wake of the tragedy, Lesley community members were urged to utilize the Lesley Counseling Center, and small group sessions were held throughout the day Tuesday led by faculty with training in trauma response.
At the vigil, Moore thanked the community for being attentive to students and colleagues and taking care of one another.
