On September 11, 2001, SMU invited students, faculty and staff to share their thoughts in a journal started by Michael Waters ’02, ’06, then an intern in the SMU Chaplain’s Office and now senior pastor of Joy Tabernacle A.M.E. Church in Dallas.

The pages are filled with inspiring statements — such as “Pray, cry, remember, but never hate” — written by members of the SMU family in the aftermath of the 9/11 tragedies.

digital copy of the journal has been posted on SMU’s site, where SMU alumni and other members of the University community are invited to share 9/11 memories and thoughts in a new online journal.

SMU President R. Gerald Turner and the Cary M. Maguire Center for Ethics & Public Responsibility invite the community to participate in a series of events reflecting on the 10th anniversary of 9/11 and what it means today. The events begin on Wednesday, September 7, and conclude on Sunday, September 11, with a Service of Remembering at Dallas Hall.
