I thank you for posting as well.
We lost #GrahamBerkekey- I lost Graham! I had just spent the summer with him on the Cape, and was moving back home that fall with him in Boston.
I am forever a Bostonian.
In fact, I didn’t go with Graham to Palm Springs that weekend because I was finishing up my two weeks at Wells Fargo.
Yes, many have a story...
We were evacuated after the first plane hit... all of us out on the street in the middle of NYC’s 5th Ave.
And then we all saw flight 175 hit.
We stood motionless- frozen in disbelief and terror.
After the very loud explosion, the sky became dark with smoke that followed with a sea of cascading glass, sparkling, and shimmering as it fell to earth.
The horror was not knowing then it was Graham. The trauma is replaying it over and over and over again.
I’ve yet to pay my respects to 1 World Trade despite my being less than a mile away. I can’t.
Nor, have I been able to speak to the (Graham’s) folks.
It’s why we build Sandy Hook. I know how the 26families feel.
3000 of us do.
‘how could anyone think our work at Sandy Hook could possibly be about getting their attention.
That’s as sick as the madmen on board.
“And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music.”
