On Friday morning the Rugters fraternity Phi Delta Theta held what turned out to be a 12-hour memorial for their fallen brother Tyler Clementi. On Sunday, an hour-long candlelight vigil was held on campus, attracting hundreds. No candles were lit for Dharun Ravi or Molly Wei.
And in New York City’s Washington Square Park, a vigil put together by NYU’s Delta Lambda Phi frat also drew hundreds including City Council Speaker Christine Quinn, Cheyenne Jackson (who led the crowd in singing “Somewhere Over The Rainbow”), and Gov. David Paterson (a surprise even to organizers, telling the crowd, “I am no stranger to bullying. I know how it is when you are singled out for prosecution for being no more than what you were born as”).
