Diane did not tell her three small children that on the night of March 27, the only home they had ever known was gone.
Roese did not know that her entire apartment was destroyed until the next day. Up to the point where she went back to the East Village on Friday, she believed that she would be able to walk through the skeleton of the building to see what she could salvage.

For weeks in advance, kids raid thrift stores and even team up with obliging parents to masquerade as their most flagrant or forbidden selves. (In both fifth and sixth grades, my good Catholic mother meticulously applied my sinister Gene Simmons face paint.)
