Sept. 11 remembrance scheduled for noon Tuesday

Benton Chapel interior
Benton Chapel (Vanderbilt University)

At noon on Tuesday, Sept. 11, four chimes will sound from the bell tower of Kirkland Hall symbolizing the four crash sites and solemnizing both the tragedy and the extraordinary heroism that define Sept. 11, 2001, as a day of both loss and unity.

The four chimes representing the four separate attacks—on the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center, on the Pentagon, and on United Flight 93—will toll as Benton Chapel’s doors open beginning at noon for remembrance, quiet reflection and solace, assisted by the Office of the University Chaplain and Religious Life.
