Silence

An eerie silence hangs in the air a day after the fire. No animals, no birds, nothing! The sounds of an old rusty motorcycle interrupted. A bearded man arrived, he wept. He had just discovered that he lost his house and all his possessions. He cried out, "There's nothing left". It occurred to me that his grief typified the loss that people experience during these times of crises.
