I cannot quite go back to where I was before I learned of Cameron Dabaghi’s death.
The similarities between that boy and my son… both East Asian Studies Majors in their junior year, both clearly smart, bright boys. Both of them jumped!
Andrew from the 10th floor of Bobst, and Cameron from the 86th floor of the Empire State Building.
What was going through their minds?
I pray that by some miracle – I do believe in them – I pray that Cameron’s body wasn’t too visibly injured.
I pray that his parents, siblings, family and friends were able to see their son, brother and friend, one more time, and that even in death he looked as the boy they knew and loved.
Lord hear our prayer!
