After the recent terrorist attacks in Beirut, Paris and Russia, the Rhodes Department of Modern Languages and Literatures (MLL) decided to invite the Rhodes community to remember the victims and to give voice to feelings of loss. The staff worked together with international students from Paris and Russia to assemble a memorial named “Grief Has No Language.” Yana Chernaya from St. Petersburg, Russia, and Alice de Galzain from Paris gathered photos for the memorial. 

It is located outside the Language Center in Palmer Hall, and those on campus can stop by and write messages of hope and/or their condolences.
