100 Words - 6

At school. Horrible "accident". Couldn't be done on purpose. Wait. How naive. Talks of other attacks. Foreign student laughs, says we got what we deserve. Wonder what happened to him? Confusion. Will the university close? I'm student government president. Talk with deans. Announcements to students. Cities evacuated. Search for my brother. Found him. No way to take a bus out of the city. Traffic everywhere. Walk through town, across 10th Street Bridge, meet our Dad. Sit at our bar, waiting for Mom. Call and check on brother in high school. Stories pour in. Heart breaks. Inspired by heroes.
