I was compelled to write this since I didn’t know what else to do and couldn’t think of a way to help:
It was the summer of 2019. The sky was spotless, and the ground was full of people. They were crowded around a small cage, which held a boy of maybe six or seven. The crowd parted like a sea as President Donald Trump appeared, holding a minigun. He looked at his insignificant hands and sighed. I asked for a mini-gun and they give me this!
