Just There

What shapes one’s fate? We were under that tree at Afrofest and we decided to get something to eat. It took awhile to fight through the crowds to get to the food concession area, so who knows what the timing was? We withdrew to a secluded grassy area off to the side to eat and saw the flashing lights of the ambulances through the crowd. Maybe somebody collapsed in the heat, I thought. We stopped to see a marimba band, then circled back to where we had been. A giant branch had fallen, and some people had been badly hurt.

  1. How uncanny!

    My daughter suffered a fractured skull and a blood clot in her brain (hematoma).

    Moments before it happened, my wife and other daughter had just walked over to see a performance at a different stage. Who knows where we would all be now if they had not done that?
