SYRACUSE, N.Y. – Thirty-five roses were laid to remember the 35 Syracuse University students who lost their lives 21 years ago over the skies of Scotland.
The annual rose laying ceremony for the victims of Pan Am Flight 103 was held once again at the wall of remembrance on the SU Campus. The 35 students were among 270 people killed in the bombing of Pan Am 103.
"Obviously, the emotions run high when they talk about our kids, but it's really heartwarming and it's great to meet the remembrance scholars and talk to them. It kind of brings us back to our kids, their aspirations, their dreams," said Robert Hunt, a parent of a Pan Am victim.
A convocation was held at Hendricks Chapel following the rose laying ceremony in honor of those lost.
