“I can’t be told enough. Don’t explain it to me.
I watched someone walk into a burning building and not come out.
I don’t know how to ask if anyone is okay without the small panic

[And] objects through me, across the room. I want to keep telling you.” – Katherine Osborne
“I held on to my drink. He started to tell me. In a loud voice. He was telling me David died. He said fire. He said sorry for having to tell me like this, that he’s a little drunk. I…let him tell me what I knew. Let someone tell me. I listened for the ending. Same ending, the counters lit up. For the first time I could…be okay and mean it.” – Katherine Osborne
