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.
You Know What Comes Between Me AND MY Calvin’s?
‘you’re very talented, Sir. However, I did have to look up several words just to keep up.
Let’s look at the children IN Cuties....
they’re sexualized as children do they’re then compromised as a result of the attention they then receive, or maybe how they then think of themselves.
Google us. We invited several notables in our neighborhood to a Hallmark sponsored event in Newtown to honor the lives senselessly taken on SandyHook’s 1st anniversary.
Hugh Jackman was gracious. As was Sarah Jessica Parker, Julianne Moore..
‘the only objection came from Brooke Shields who thought our entire involvement was to get her attention- that Hallmarks 26 original ornaments honoring each life lost was about her!
Brooke is a self obsessed hyper vigilant who is without doubt a sociopath.
‘for fuck sake she was hot at 15!
She’s been fat the next 40 years!
And god help you if she sings!
the one time beauty truly fades.
But, I was also a 14y/o boy who needed desperately for Brooke to be his beard!
