Subject: Candlelight Vigil for the South Korea Sewol Ferry Disaster

Description:
A candlelight vigil for the victims of the South Korea ferry disaster will be
held on Tuesday, April 29, at 8 p.m. at the Garden of Reflection and
Remembrance of Memorial Chapel.  All UM students, staff and faculty are
invited.

The Sewol ferry, carrying 476 passengers and crew, capsized off the southern
coast of South Korea near Jindo on April 16.  Most of the victims were high
school students who were on a school field trip. The emotional impact of this
disaster is felt not only by South Korean students, staff, and faculty who
live far from their home country but also by other members of the UM
community who empathize with South Koreans as they struggle to cope with this
profound loss.  The candlelight vigil may serve to help all members of the UM
community mourn and support one another. The University of Maryland
Counseling Center (http://www.counseling.umd.edu) is also available for
additional support.
