In this, as in any retelling, an accurate account of events depends on the memory of the teller. As such, I can boast no more fidelity to the truth in my attempt than the soundness of my recollections. I do not have a monopoly on objectivity, nor can I claim that my narrative is completely free of subjective interpretation. However the facts of this story are true to the extent that any memoirist can claim to be truthful despite a fallible memory. The names of the characters have been changed, and in certain cases biographical information, personal aspects and details of events have been altered to protect individuals’ anonymity. It is my hope that their privacy will be respected.
