Carillon Bells to Ring in Honor of Newtown Victims
The University will join communities across the nation this morning in tolling bells in memory of the children and teachers killed in last week’s school shooting in Newtown, Conn. After a moment of silence at 9:30 a.m., students Kelly Guerrieri and Mark Mulloch will ring the lowest bell of the Hopeman Memorial Carillon 26 times. The toll will be followed by several familiar children’s songs. Watch live at www.rochester.edu/news/live.
