By her own admission, Ann E. Shinnar is a tough professor. She even sees it as a “badge of honor,” because in her mind, that means her students are well prepared for a life in science and “understanding how they can take observation and make conclusions.” As a Lander College for Men associate professor of chemistry and deputy chair of the chemistry department, Dr. Shinnar’s main goal is to show those in her lab “what kind of mastery they need to accomplish” to find order amid the universe’s randomness, in the hopes of their doing groundbreaking work. That’s why Dr. Shinnar takes such pride and responsibility in her job. “The mark of a teacher is someone who not only knows the material, but can explain it in detail and convey the important and beauty and excitement of that particular discipline.”

He questioned whether the ends of memorializing justify the often intrusive means. Dr. Moses worried that the true memory of his son, the private memories, would be somehow washed away by the media storm and the representation. It was a thought-provoking speech, but perhaps most moving was when Dr. Moses read the passage from his book describing the mass funeral for the victims with the parents sitting on the same benches their sons had sat upon and the bodies of the boys passing before them. “Clichéd as it might sound,” Joshua Goldstein, President of the Psychology Club, says, “hearing Dr. Moses speak reinforces the need to appreciate life. Because it can be taken away in a second.”
