On a typical Monday, I leave my apartment at 8 a.m. and don’t return until about midnight. During that time, I go to class, I work as a barista, I work in the newsroom, I sometimes eat, and I try to do homework. My visual transcript remains blank through all of this. The purpose of the visual transcript is to capture and validate student’s co-curricular experience.

With candles raised, almost 200 members of the Alamance County community spoke in unison: “Good is stronger than evil. Love is stronger than hate. Light is stronger than darkness. Life is stronger than death.” As they uttered those words, the lights turned on in Life’s Journey United Church of Christ and thus concluded the vigil honoring the memory of the victims of the shooting at a gay nightclub in Orlando that claimed the lives of of 49 victims and injured at least 50 others. The candlelight vigil was hosted June 14 by the church, Alamance Pride and the Alamance branch of the NAACP. A similar, yet more intimate gathering of 80 attendees was held June 13 in Elon University’s Gender & LGBTQIA Center.
