Between May 18 through May 23, the Isla Vista community came together to remember the lives lost in the May 23, 2014 I.V. tragedy. The week saw several events, all of which focused on remembrance and healing and ended with a memorial walk from Storke Tower to Anisq’oyo Park.
“We are all coming together as a community to honor and remember one of the campuses’ most difficult moments. Five years ago, our university faced an unthinkable tragedy. We suffered the tragic loss of six of our own, and saw pain inflicted on nine injured,” said Chancellor Henry T. Yang, who spoke at the May 23 memorial walk.
“When one hurts, we all hurt.”
