D-Day.  A day that changed the world. The Atlantic's waters were red. Not many of those folks left. We each should find ways to keep their memories alive.

A special part of my childhood growing up.  We could see it from where I lived on the east side of the bay.  Memories of crossing it in fog with the glow of the special sodium lights it had.  Ferry rides across the bay going by the bridge and Alcatraz, which was still open.  These ferry boats were what was used as the police station in Nash Bridges.  Being high up on a hill side where you could overlook the bay, see the fog roll in and fill up the entire basin, with the bridge disappearing except for the very tops poking above the fog.  Its was like someone dumped dry ice into the bay. The whole panarama of seeing the peaks of the hills poking about the fluffy and sometimes roiling fog under the bright sunlight above the fog... 

Its kinda mind boggling thinking back that it still pretty new when I was a kid.  Now its a majestic lady overlooking the Bay.

This gave me chills!  They probably had not registered what had just happened. It still profoundly shocks me that this happened in the USA.  That you were there is also chilling!  What a horrible wake up call.

Yeah, I would say it's before the shooting, except for the smoke. Or everyone was really stunned, there were a few moments of dead silence.

What happened was that all of a sudden everyone was shooting. Everyone being the National Guard. It happened in a matter of seconds. There was silence and disbelief. Then chaos.

 
There is now evidence that an FBI paid informant fired the first shot.

Yeah sorry but if there's gunplay I'm for running away. People get hurt watching baseball games. But I guess the smoke in the photo probably is from some "pre-gunfire" shenanigans, nothing to fear.

Not to downplay the seriousness of that event but really that's not the kind of defensive posture one would expect to see when people are being fired upon.

Despite the fact they are in college people 18-22 don't always make the best/safest choice.



Not to imply that older people do. :)

The people whose backs you see were not the ones being fired on, but were a bit of a distance away.  There are some hills in that area and there were a number of "spectators" to what happened.

Having seen that footage many times, I always was amazed that any of the passengers survived.
