A Shared Moment of Silence


Something unexpected happened Saturday night when I was out in New York watching the North Carolina-Duke game. It was also something remarkable. The television broadcast showed a somber Cameron Indoor Stadium observing a lengthy moment of silence in honor of UNC student body president Eve Carson, who was murdered in Chapel Hill this week. As the teams and fans stood with their heads bowed, and Tar Heels Coach Roy Williams rubbed the Carolina blue ribbon on his jacket lapel in honor of Carson, the entire bar I was at, hundreds of people, immediately went mute, too.
