Erik Schechter traveled down from New York to take a trip with me out to the Bus 19 site. His story as a survivor of the January 29, 2004 bombing is quite moving, yet told from a very matter-of-fact point of view. His audience was a group of law enforcement officers who were spending the day learning about the mind-set and tactics of suicide bombers. His talk was very appropriate. Erik didn’t identify himself a s a “victim” of this tragedy; he simply was in the wrong place at the wrong time. As a heads-up comment, parts of his description of that day might be a bit graphic for younger kids.
