Thunder announces the coming storm, its reverberations ignored.
Fake towns, lifestyle centers, power centers, whatever you want to call them, they are basically outdoor malls. And it’s interesting to see these shopping malls attempting to replicate the town centers they decimated in the past.
CityNerd’s overview of this is interesting:
Whoever finds this note, what I tell you is the truth. So tell all who will listen.
In my time, many people foolishly voted for corrupt politicians hell-bent on destroying freedom for their own gain. And while others fought against them, there were not enough.
In the years following, all perished from wars and man-made disasters. All but one if this goes unread.
If it is read, I pray you are heard. Because I, too, found a note, but nobody listened.
America is not a democracy
I passed Linda in the hallway as I approached Karen’s door.
“Thanks for taking the heat off,” she said hastily.
Before I could say, you’re welcome, she was gone causing me some concern. But I was not going to be intimidated. If Karen is mad, she will not be mad at me, I thought.
Entering her office, I readied myself. “Karen, whatever beef you have with Linda is not going to be taken out on me.”
“Shut up and get over here.”
“Did you not hear what I said?”
“Babe, we’ve got a problem. Robert found the answer to my question as to why some tribes were asked while others were not asked to join the outliers.”
“All excluded tribes have chiefs with a pedigree.”
“Pedigree chiefs know our true history. A history the outliers want to rewrite.”
“We’re in their way.”
“More specifically, I’m in their way.”

This is the first draft of my manuscript Shift – Don’t judge a book by its cover. I am writing it online in sections as I go. So feel free to comment, good or bad. If you see mistakes, point them out.
The story centers around shapeshifting.
I’m currently working on chapter nine.
Where is our dignity? A look at today’s headlines shows nothing but poor morality and corruption. Our large cities are festering, and our schools are run by fools. All the while, we sit by and do nothing as if someone else caused the problem. Make no mistake, America’s track lies solely at the feet of We The People.
Independent stores closed as corporations moved in on their towns until one cold December night when an open sign appeared. Mom-And-Pop had had enough and raised a middle finger toward the bright lights of the interstate.
A teacher who outraged parents with BDSM materials claims it helps kids’ identity development. This is insane, and the teacher should be fired. But she has not. Why? Had this been a straight male trying to teach his kids about his sexuality with sexual materials, he would have and should have been fired.
Teachers, keep your sex life at home because nobody cares what you do in private, But exposing it to our kids, that’s a different story.
The number one complaint during any natural disaster is the lack of power. But what if the disaster was a total collapse of the grid?
Practical Engineering sums it up nicely.
What if you had an enemy that knew everything about you. Pictures of your face. Your fingerprints, DNA, and medical records. Emails, spending habits, fears, and desires. Your private conversations. All locked up in a database to use against you when needed.
Now imagine it was all true and come up with a word to describe your feelings. I’ll bet SAFE is not one of them.
