On the death of a corporal
The following link is to a CBC
(Canadian Broadcasting Company) interview that was on yesterday’s radio program As it Happens. The subject of the
interview was a bystander’s response to Wednesday’s terrorist killing of 24-year-old
Corporal Nathan Carillo, who was on honorary guard duty at the Canadian
National War Memorial. The interviewer is Carol Off and the interviewee
Barbara Winter. I envy Carol’s ability to carry on so admirably through an
interview that left me wrecked, and I especially envy Barbara Winter’s ability
to be emotionally present, both with the dying corporal and on an
internationally broadcast radio program. How I wish I could remain so in touch with the best that is within me.
