This whole unprepossessing mess started last night when the bombs went off in my neighborhood. Now they were so close I could hear their burnished shoes making their way to my room. I held my breath when I heard the footsteps stop in front of my closet. I knew I was a goner. Just as his hand touched the door, I heard mom yell, “Wake up! It is time for school.”
