The president was ahead in a slight cluster, the Secret Service agents forming a wall around him. A few of those most trusted were admitted to congratulate them and have their photographs taken.
n fact, cameras broke out everywhere. Guides joined me to have their pictures taken, as did others. Tired as we were, exhausted as were many of us, we’d made it and for a few minutes we savored the joy of accomplishment. Camera flashes formed round, silent bursts of light.
The snowfall was very heavy, whipping down on us in a violent wind. I turned to find Diana, to savor this moment with her when I heard the sounds of rapid gunfire coming from the president’s group. It was answered almost at once by other weapons. Instinctively, I threw myself to the ground, crawled toward Diana, as more shots pierced the howling wind amid anguished calls of pain.
