Boston University's remembrance of Lingzi Lu fails to recognize her faith

David Paulin
Lingzi Lu, a graduate student in mathematics and statistics at Boston University, has been identified as one of three dead in Boston's terror attack. There are stories about her at the Boston Globe, here, and at Boston University's student newspaper, here. Interestingly, Lingzi Lu not only loved living in Boston, she was enjoying America's religious freedoms and had participated in a Christian religious retreat, according to the Globe's article. How ironic, then, that the remembrances for her at Boston University are utterly devoid of the faith that she apparently embraced or was interested in. As an item at Boston University's studentpaper had it:

In the aftermath of Monday's tragedy, a Service of Healing will take place this afternoon, Wednesday, April 17, at 5:30 p.m. at Marsh Chapel. All members of the BU community are welcome.

There will also be a gathering to help those who need support and further discussion on Thursday, April 18, at 7 p.m. in the Burke Room of Agganis Arena. Representatives from Marsh Chapel and staff from Student Health Services Behavioral Medicine, the Dean of Students Office, and the International Students & Scholars Office will be on hand to talk to students.
