HOMEWORK

I am Nado Woolebie. Each week we listen in as leading authors of fiction and not-fiction. Read from their most recent works and take questions at independent bookstores. Join us at NPR.org/booktour.

StoryCorp is made possible through funding from state farm, the Atlantic philanthropies and corporation for public broadcasting, and most importantly, through the supportive participants and listeners like you nationwide.

Welcome to the StoryCorp podcast. In this episode, we’ll hear memories from September 11th, 2001. StoryCorp and the national September 11th memorial museum at the World Trade Center are working together to collect oral history of that day. We hope to record interviews for each of the lives lost in the attacks. That’s how Diana Devido and her 10-year-old son Frankie came to StoryCorp. Dianna interviewed Frankie about losing his grandfather, Dianna’s dad, Bill Stekman.

 

Stekman works the night shift atop one World Trade Center as an engineer for NBC’s transmitter there.

We used to play Peter Pan and we used to use this screw driver as swords, and pretend I was like Peter Pan and he was Captain Hook. He always used to be in the garage fixing up things with cousin Mikey. And he also promised me take me to his work once but that’s not gonna happen.

I know you were young when it happened. You are only kindergarten. But is there a time that you were the most scared when all that was gone?

I didn’t know that something happened until I came to the living room and you were upset. You said, there was something wrong with papa and made me scared. I remembered that Mikey told me that planes crashed and he wasn’t coming back.

So I think you did make you feel better to go to sleep at that night?

Going up to grandma, her my parents, gave them a hug, rest on their shoulder, and some time went into my room, I pretended that grandpa was right there, nothing was wrong and my Teddy was right there. So that helps me.

Do you think you’re different now than you were before, umm, we lost papa?

Yeah, I think I’m different because being insuring places, one that made happy time, just somewhere in my mind, he just won’t get out of there, he just stuck in my mind and that makes me look sadder where I am. And I have changed them. I was imagining us like seeing each other again, and being really happy as a family without being sad or anything on September 11th.

If you could talk to him right now, what would you wanna say?

I love you and there’s no other grandfather, I’d rather see you.
