Thank you Cornell University EHS and Fire Marshal, Ron Flynn, for bringing Shawn and Alvaro to our campus. The documentary of these two survivors brought valuable insight to the need for sprinklers and fire alarm systems with all sleeping areas. The presentation by Shawn and Alvaro after viewing the documentary was priceless! To hear them discuss the night of January 19, 2000 and what they thought was "just another prank fire alarm" and their decision to evacuate and why and subsequently what happened after that forever changed their lives was a story I will never forget.
My only disappointment was that the attendance was low…very low for such a wonderful opportunity to learn about the adversities that they have had to overcome and their decision to share their inspiring story to bring awareness to the importance of fire safety not only in dormitories, but also within fraternities, sororities, off-campus housing and your own personal dwellings.
I would recommend this book and DVD to anyone. I have now viewed the documentary 4 times and each time gain more inspiration from their story.
If you were unable to attend one of the three viewings and presentations held September 5th and have interest in the book or movie. Please contact the EHS Department of Cornell University.
Always one of my favorite events at reunion.
It was amazing!!!!! Best show on campus.
It was great performance from CU Symphony Orchestra. It was mesmerizing to see how Ms Ko conducting the orchestra playing a difficult piece from Wagner. She did a great job. It was my first time to see a woman conducted an orchestra. And it was great. So, YES, woman can conduct an orchestra. Also a nice performance from Mr. Huang, the violist. And I was amazed to see how dynamic Mr. Kim conducted the symphonic dances from west side story. Iam really happy to have attended the concert. I hope to see more in the future.
It was magical. I realized that being at Cornell is way more than being in school. It's being part of a wonderful history of 150 years. It's belonging to a rich past, and working towards a promising future.. a future of Culture, intellectual riches and hope. May long live our alma mater, our own, our fair Cornell. God bless Cornell.
