The death of 6 young college students when the balcony they were standing on collapsed in Berkeley, California was a tragedy that really hit hard.
I was 14 years old when the Stardust
tragedy occurred. I remember it clearly. Such a terrible loss of life. I was 14 at the time and to me the victims were adults. Now such a sad loss of life in Berkeley. The difference is from the vantage point of 49 these young people are just children in my eyes. Hence the teddy bear image. The bears also references Berkeley's young athletes, The Golden Bears.Fran
