There were flashes in the air as the bombs went off. The small group abandoned their vehicle and headed for cover. They were more concerned for their safety than they were for the food and the vehicle that was left on the road. They brought music and were not prepared to fight whoever these people were.

“Get the bubble wrap Mildred. We gotta protect the kids.” Do you really do that? So many folks are running around trying to make it perfect that they are missing the point of life. To live it.
