A Family Conversation: The Khobar Towers Attack (1996)! A Story About Tragedy, Fear of Loss and Love (Part I)

“A Family Conversation” is a storytelling audio series that features weekly discussions between blogging cousins LadyG and Ron Brown on current events along with favorite posts from each other’s blog.

**********************************************************

February is Black History Month, but it is also the month of love.

This post is about tragedy, fear of loss, and ultimately, love shared between two cousins.

All of this takes place against the backdrop of The Khobar Towers attack (1996) in Saudi Arabia. Of course, we start with a bit of comedy about rent, mortgage and the fact that LadyG cannot pronounce the name “Dhahran.” We also joke about the importance of accuracy and the need for documenting historical events like what happened with the Khobar Towers.

Please enjoy our true family story. Part II will be posted next Friday.

You can learn more about the Khobar Towers attack, which resulted in the deaths of 19 U.S. Air Force personnel, HERE.

As an aside, I have heard it said that the Khobar Towers attack, along with the attack of the USS Cole (2000), were precursors to the devastation of 9/11.

Sadly, we had a family friend, Charone Gunn, killed on the Cole.

You can learn more about that HERE.

And please don’t come for me for talking about the projects; chile plenty of my folks came from the projects so LadyG got mad love for “da bricks!” 😂

R.I.P. To those lost at the Khobar Towers

R.I.P. To Charone Gunn

Peace and Love to the survivors!
