The ultimate broken telephone.
When some something happens, be it big or, surprisingly, small, there are always those who will be willing to tell you exactly what happened and why, even though they weren't there and have no previous knowledge or experience in the field.
This is that story...
That's how it started. In the way all things start. At the beginning, unobtrusively, and with surprisingly little fuss.
I know it began then because I was there. In the time that followed there have been many who professed knowledge of the event, and understanding of the cause, this is not unusual in these circumstances, but I know they weren't there; they don't really know.
When all is said and done, I was there, and I know!
