I have to admit, it wasn’t until I moved here just over 11 years ago that I learned anything about the church bus crash on May 14, 1988.
At the time, I was a very young reporter in Fairfield County, Conn. I didn’t even own a TV, which wasn’t an issue because most nights I had to cover meetings or events. I didn’t watch the national news very often, and of course this was long before the Internet. If something happened someplace other than the towns where I worked, I didn’t know about it.
