Trajedy In Santa Monica
Posted 16 July 2003 - 04:23 PM
...There was a trajedy.
A man in a car drove through the local Farmers Market on the Promenade, a place many residents including myself frequently daily. He injured many and killed several, there are firetrucks, ambulances and helicopters. It is trully awful, from what I understand he is now detained with the police.
I'm relieved to say that, after making a few phone calls, no one I know was hurt, but unfortunately many others were. And I still fear that someone I know was involved in that mess.
This is truly a sad day.

I went down there, past the fire trucks and the police cruisers. Past a woman lying on the street with tear filled eyes telling her story to those who would listen. I saw it all, but I didn't connect, not until I saw the helicopters taking off and flying away not 500 feet from me, flying at an extremely low altitude.
As I headed back to work, the sky began to rain, and I saw the Los Angeles Sheriff's department finally arrive...
I realize some of you may think my saying this is silly, but it's just my way of dealing with it. I wasn't there, and I don't know anyone that was hurt, but it happened not 3 blocks from me, and infront of the eyes of friends of mine (That's how I found out). It still affected me, this is how I deal...
