... we were just shooting the breeze and then you know bang! You know massive, massive explosion. You know, it was just this, from what I remember, just a really loud bang and then darkness and silence for a little while. I just remember this calmness after the bang and the blackness and then I heard gunfire. It was the gunfire that made me come to my senses. ...
So I started taking pictures of the guys that were all around me and they were taking cover so in the pictures you will see the guys actually kind of hunkered down and trying to avoid the gunfire. My reaction was to go in and take pictures and then I hesitated thinking well what if there’s a second explosion as I know that… that happens you know? They wait for the rescue party to come in and get the wounded and the bodies and they explode another bomb and so I was really kind of you know tormented about this sort of feeling of another explosion.
