Theater teacher and freelance writer Bill Williams ’69 shared with New York Times readers the cautionary tale of the loss of his 22-year-old son, William, to heroin addiction in a piece published earlier this spring. Months later, on the anniversary of Hurricane Sandy, which coincided with his son’s hospitalization, Williams writes of grief amid such external chaos in the Opinionator/Private Lives essay “The Storm Inside.”
