Steven’s father was an upright man, serious, and fair. When Steven heard about the gunfire at the Cappuccino restaurant, where he knew that his father was meeting business associates, he thought it must be the military. He called his father’s phone repeatedly, but there was no answer. He feared the worst; his father would never have failed to contact them. The news of his death finally arrived around noon. Steven himself continues to work in a popular restaurant and club, a place he knows is considered a target. “You can decide to stay in the house, to no longer leave, to no longer laugh, but when your day comes, you’re finished just the same,” he says. “I think that’s what they want, to create a climate of fear, to make us change our way of living, to make us live in fear. No. We are going to live.”
