Julian Bond

Charlottesville tribute

22 Aug, 2015

Friends, University of Virginia faculty and community members gather and place flowers in the water to remember Bond. Similar events are held across the country with attendees releasing flowers into bodies of water at 3 p.m., the same time Bond’s family released his ashes into the Gulf of Mexico.

His impact on the University of Virginia and the Charlottesville community is truly immeasurable…He lived a beautiful life that was full of courage, optimism, hope and strength, and taught all of us how we could do the same…I think he’s another person who, even at 75, was gone too soon. You want someone who gives that much to go on for many, many more years.
