Even someone who’s not a total Apple fan girl could easily see why someone would be, while at Apple’s flagship store in New York City Wednesday night, following the news of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs’s death.
At the NYC store, there were throngs of mourners, shoppers and people simply trying to get on camera. Media presence was high. People were chastised for loitering, and repeat offenders were asked to leave the premises.
Security and police removed letters, confiscated flowers, and blew out memorial candles consistently for three hours after news of Jobs’s death surfaced. One frustrated man ripped three bouquets away from security and demanded to know where he could place them without fear of removal. After that, security eased, and a shrine slowly began to form.
Flowers, signs, apples (both bitten and whole), and candles lined the steps. However, it was a notebook that especially defined the moment. People — who had never met the former Apple CEO, but were still touched by his life — had left him handwritten letters.
Here are a few of the notes left for Steve, presented anonymously.
If you saw this notebook on the steps, what would you have written?
