Silence

Silence…shhhhh.

When I woke up I knew something was wrong. I could feel it my body, like worm moving its way through my system. I took a shower and moved on with my day as usual. I went to my first class of the day math class, and then my anthropology class. In my anthropology we discussed the tribes of Africa, mostly the Nuer people. I watched murder move through that country like no other splitting families apart. It was an amazing thing to see these people try to get out of a war zone.
