Writing Austin's Lives: A Community Portrait is a collection of 127 personal memoirs written by a selection of people that represents the rich diversity of Austin. The project was organized by the University of Texas Humanities Institute, which encouraged all Austinites to participate.
Christine Gilbert is one of the writers who lended her voice to the project. She tells the story of her experiences on campus on the day of the UT Tower Shooting interspersed with memories of her first time visiting Barton Springs.
"When I look at my story and re-read it, it takes me back to that date pretty clearly and the scenes that I remember when I walked across campus that afternoon."
