Finding Danny

Recommended Posts

"Oh, no!" he gasped as he surveyed the disaster before him. Never in his 40

years of life had he seen anything like it. How anyone could have survived he

did not know. He could only hope that somewhere amid the overwhelming

destruction he would find his 16-year-old son. Only the slim hope of finding

Danny kept him from turning and fleeing the scene.

He took a deep breath and proceeded. Walking was virtually impossible with so

many things strewn across his path. He moved ahead slowly. "Danny! Danny!" he

whispered to himself.

He tripped and almost fell several times. He heard someone, or something,

move. At least he thought he did. Perhaps, he was just hoping he did. He shook

his head and felt his gut tighten. He couldn't understand how this could have

happened. There was some light but not enough to see very much. Something cold

and wet brushed against his hand. He jerked it away.

In desperation, he took another step then cried out, "Danny!"

From a nearby pile of unidentified material, he heard his son. "Yes, Dad," he

said, in a voice so weak it could hardly be heard.

"It's time to get up and get ready for school," the man sighed, "And for

heaven's sake, clean up this room!"
