Texas Aggie Bonfire Memorial

Some of you may remember the collapse of the Texas Aggie Bonfire in November of 1999. If you aren't from Texas, you probably couldn't comprehend much of what it was or all the activity surrounding it. I was a student at the time and I can tell you that it caused great and painful reflection for our university. The memorial has finally been finished and will be dedicated this month. Here is a great (if a little sentimental) short video explaining the plan and layout of the memorial. Once again, you can see how seriously Aggies take symbolism and tradition. Any comments? I wouldn't mind discussing it with anyone.
