Sunday evening begins with “Baylor Remembers: A Service of Remembrance” at Waco Hall, starting at 5 p.m. Texas Senator Brian Birdwell will be the featured speaker. Birdwell will be relating his experience at the Pentagon sharing how he was affected and changed by Sept. 11, 2001. There will also be two opportunities for reflection during the presentation. One will highlight a Baylor Law School alumnus that was on the 50th floor of one of the towers. Dr. Mark Long, director of Middle East studies, will be providing perspective for the events.
“The 10-year anniversary is important for the entire country and especially for students on campus who were between the ages of 8 and 12,” Jana Hixson, director of community relations said. “Now they’re adults, while when it happened they were children.”
