The moment when the thunder shakes the table you're drawing on is a very scary moment. Your mind rushes through all the possible things that could happen.
Even if it's on the other side of the world, people still get hurt. People still die. Families and friends still get torn apart.
I think this one is self-explanatory.
I've heard that these can shake land. But I live in Illinois so, probably not.
What if the storm gets so bad the street floods and just washes everything away?
What if lightning strikes the house or a tree nearby?
What if, what if, what if...
The thunder shaking the table causes all this. Such a small thing, leading to such big and scary thoughts. Then it hits you.
These things have happened before. People have died because of this. Families and friends have been ripped apart.
And it will happen again.
But when? Is this the next one?
Can we stop it?
How many will people will go?
What even happens after death?
Ya, thanks for reading this tiny, itty bitty section of my brain. I've still got the rest to go.
This barely even scraped the surface.
