2018 GraduationMay 5th, 2018
Countdown to May 2018 Graduation!

Came across this beautiful temporary memorial in front of the library on the Belmont campus today, honoring those who lost their lives 18 years ago today. Many were civilians. Others were police and firefighters. Remembering the latter reminds me of words spoken at a SFFD funeral I attended many years ago. The Department Chaplain pointed out that the bravest moment of officers’ careers aren’t necessarily the ones that cost them their lives, but the moment that they make that commitment to dedicate their careers to helping others, knowing it might demand such an unspeakably high cost and making that commitment anyway. We honor today all of those who have lost their lives, those who grieve loved ones, and all of those who dedicate their lives to protecting and improving our communities.
