  1. BU created a wonderful website almost immediately after the attacks, entitled We Remember. People on campus and around the world shared their thoughts and feelings as the days wore on, and it was a very healing place to be. Very thoughtfully done, and very supportive to the BU community and to people not otherwise connected to us who knew those BU had lost — and we lost many. I don’t know if that site is archived somewhere, but it would be great to see it again.

  2. We will never forget Lisa Frost. She was everything a young woman, a valuable, contributing person in the world, should be. Talented, loving, driven, hard-working, truly friendly, quick to help, quick to hug, passionate yet logical. She was a beautiful person, inside and out. We will grieve forever for her but will be strong and live our own lives with more gratitude.

    I miss her.

    And I’m still sorry I made her wear a horrendous ice blue bridesmaid dress years ago…now THAT was a good friend. :) Thank you, BU, for being her dream school, for being her drive our last year of high school. She loved being there and she loved so many people at BU. You’re part of the story now.
