Students at the University of Virginia did their part to remember the lives lost during the morning of September 11, 2001.

The UVA group, 'Students Defending Democracy', read the names of every victim who died on 9/11. The group also held an Inter-Faith Vigil and Prayer. The group says the events are a way to keep the memory of the victims from tarnishing over time.

"On the day it happened, 3,000 students turned out on the Lawn in solidarity, and we want to make sure that legacy remains here at the University to make sure we never forget what happened five years ago," said Students Defending Democracy Spokesperson Alex Hannagan.

The events were open to the public.

The students also ask that everyone go to UVA Amphitheater to sign a banner that will be on grounds all night.
