Has it really been 25 years since the San Ysidro Massacre?

In the summer of 1984, I had just turned 18. I remember July 18th very well. I’d been spending the day with my friend Stacy by her pool in Bonita, recovering from a party we’d been to the night before. The party had been way out in the sticks in Bonsall and the drive home had been late and long.

At that party I had carefully avoided Tasha, a friend with whom I’d had a falling out. I remembered hearing that she’d left the party early because she had to work at her job the next day.

The sun finally getting to us, Stacy and I headed inside for a cold drink. Stacy’s mom was glued to the television. “Girls, you’re not going to believe what’s happening at the McDonald’s in San Ysidro.”

My heart went cold as I looked at Stacy and said, “That’s where Tasha works.”
