This year marks the 20th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center in New York City on 9/11.

Three days after the attacks, Dr. Sidney A. Ribeau, Bowling Green State University's ninth president, addressed faculty, staff, students and members of the Bowling Green community during the campus candlelight vigil, ‘A Day of Remembrance at BGSU,’ in front of University Hall.

Here are some of the moments from that vigil two decades ago, in photos:
