I couldn’t think of anything interested that had happened during the OA weekend but slowly a repressed memory returned. I had to double check with Chris Fosmire that it had actually happened as the incident was almost somnogogic.
I was in Totem Lodge, the main social building in camp and asked Chris Fosmire when I had gotten Vigil Honor, a level of recognition in the OA and he responded late August of 2001. Mr. Williams, a crazy machinist who’s been in the OA since the dawn of Treasure Island that perpetually wears safety glasses thought for a moment a looked at me and said: It all makes sense.
Me: What does?
Him: You got Vigil in August and four weeks later, 9/11.
