Relaxed is probably the word I would use to describe the second Day of Remembrance at Virginia Tech. The feel on campus was very calm, the weather was warm and it seemed most people wanted to enjoy the day outside as they reflected. “I only saw one person crying,” said Molli Chmielorz. She thought that the release of energy during the 3.2 mile race at the start of the day had a lot to do with the calm atmosphere.
