About this object
“Everybody was very calm, and you could see people coming from everywhere, just converging onto the Mall. We walked down several levels, down to the sort of flat, just before you get to the Mall. And all of us trying to get on our cell phones. And none of our cell phones worked. We wanted to let our families know that we were evacuating and that we were going to be fine. And we believed we would be. Because this was so difficult to take in. Such a difficult thing to, to comprehend. We were all working sort of on automatic.”
