For Tim Tilbe
Chip Morris was thrilled that school was dismissed early, until he saw the carnage upon strolling out the building’s front door. Mr. Jaworski, Fort Erie Secondary School’s principal, had announced over the PA system that a state of emergency had been declared and that buses waited outside to take students home. Students that walked were urged to arrange for a ride home.
Jaworski sounded choked up and the sound of the microphone hitting the desk thudded through the speakers. Drama to heighten the seriousness of a situation, all done to make people panic, his Dad would have said. And he would have been right. The announcement made everyone charge at the door, delaying the evacuation.
