Aftermath: A cry of anguish on a college campus

       Editor’s Note: The following quote came from Marshall University’s student body president in the aftermath of the 1970 plane crash. (Source: Chief Justice yearbook, 1970-71 school year).

       "There is no one untouched. 
There is no one who can hear 
of this and not feel sorrow and grief. 
And we, the students, 
feel the pain so deeply
that we cry …
and cry …
and wonder how, and why."

Michael Gant
Marshall University
Student Body President
