In this segment we learn about Mary Frances Gabour Lamport’s account of that fateful day in August, and her faith journey after she, and her family, were shot in the stairwell by Charles Whitman in the UT Tower.
Next, we will talk about what really happened when Charles was court martialed, and we will also listen in a bit to Out of the Blue: 50 Years After the UT Tower Shooting.
