  In reply to: Even(maybe especially)during tragedy ND stands tall  posted by IrishJoeinnc

Having worked at Rolfs, I knew many of the swimmers, and was good friends with a few. One of my best friends was on that bus, and I'll always remember what it was like waiting to hear that she was OK. It was one of the most tragic days that I can remember, yet the two memories that stand out most of all were -

The beyond packed Basillica on that Thursday (I believe) afternoon as everyone left classes and congregated in church as one ND family.

Driving past the 74 mile marker on the Indiana Toll Road for the next year+ and seeing the yellow tape on the chain link fence read "God Bless ND Swim" - I still get silent when I pass that point of my trip into South Bend.
