My mother and Joshua were driving toward downtown last evening when they heard on the radio about the bridge collapse. The radio had broadcast news of the tragedy only minutes after the collapse.
Joshua immediately called my father and me to let us know that he and my mother were safe. He called my father first, and me immediately afterward. Neither of us had even heard about the disaster until Josh called us and let us know what had happened.
My mother and Josh turned around and went home, and my father and I went home, too. No one was interested in dining out and attending a Noel Coward play after learning what had happened.
