Johns Hopkins University students gathered on the lawn outside MSE Library on Wednesday for "A Time of Reflection" to discuss the repercussions of the war in Afghanistan and the tragedies of Sept. 11. The forum, sponsored by JHU for Peace, focused on opposition to U.S. policy regarding the war against the terrorism. Among the topics discussed were the effects of U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East, the role of the military and the humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan. The forum also addressed the issue of censorship in America. The purpose of the discussion, cited in an informational bulletin, was to "generate thought and dialogue about the situation."
