SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- Syracuse University continues Remembrance Week on the 25th anniversary of the bombing of Pan-Am flight 103.
A total of 270 people were killed, 35 of them SU students returning home from a semester abroad.
Friday, at exactly 2:03 p.m., the annual rose laying ceremony was held, marking the exact time of the tragedy over Lockerbie, Scotland.
Each year, 35 current SU students are chosen as Remembrance scholars, laying a rose in honor of the victims, but also taking on the responsibility of representing them.
"They learn about that victim. They get to know their family. They get to know everything about them basically. And teach us about terrorism through educational events, teach us about this tragedy. That's how we learn and that's how we take lessons and try to make the world a better place," said Kelly Rodoski, Pan-Am 103 25th Anniversary Commemoration Committee.
The date of the actual bombing was December 21st, 1988, but Remembrance Week is held in October during a time when classes are in session.
