Hope in the Rubble

Here’s another great dda I decided to respond to.

This is my fictional account of this moment (imagining how he feels.)

Hope In the Rubble

By Anna Bella

James looked at his old record player remembering how he had everything he had ever needed. He never had to work for anything because his parents had left him enough money to take care of himself forever or so they thought. But here it was they had not thought of everything when the planes sent bombs onto the family estate amongst other civilian homes. James felt tears roll down his cheeks as he felt alone and lost in the world. The cold winds blew the tears on his cheek to a mini frozen river and caused him extra pain. The records spun a song that touched his heart and made him feel like there was still hope left for him. He truly was alone as he had never married and never had children. He had believed during all of his life that it was enough to have money and that it would always be there for him versus people in his opinion. He had thought that money and wealth was eternal. Not only was his home destroyed by the bombs but also the stocks had crashed 3 weeks before in his city. James reached over and put his favorite record into the player. Luckily, it wasn’t destroyed during all that happened. He pulled out his father’s old pipe and smoked some tobacco and he sang to the music saying “I know change gonna come.”
