Telling: Streams & Logs


Jan 11 - lbk

Got to school to pick up Gus and Jake and found police cars, firetrucks and black smoke billowing where my babies should be. The coatless children clustered under the awning of a neighboring apartment building demonstrated far greater calm than I. Later the principal said to me, "I've been through an earthquake with children and a shooting, but never a fire. This is the first fire."
