The “Ithaca ♥ Charleston” aerial photograph was taken at the Ithaca High School, according to an email from Gary Stewart, Cornell University’s director of Community Relations.
Here’s the description of the event: Community members of every age are invited to Ithaca High School Friday (June 26) morning for a large group message to residents of Charleston, S.C, whose worlds were shattered June 17 after a deadly shooting at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church, a historic black church.
And here’s the subsequent photo:
A story in The Post and Courier, the major newspaper of Charleston, republished the photograph on Saturday.
The comments beneath the story speak for themselves:
“Thank you Ithaca for helping us be stronger!”
