Dear My best friend in the whole wide world,
How are you doing? How is your family? Things here aren’t that great where I am. I really miss you guys. I feel like I am so helpless. I wish everything would go back to normal. I’m writing you this letter because I want you to know the things that have been happening here. As you know it is 1930 and things have been very dry in some areas. To get to the point your godchildren and I were in a huge disaster I didn’t know what was going to happen. It was this huge cloud of darkness coming towards our home and all I could thing was pray ask for forgiveness from the heart we are about to die. As I was doing that I kissed my children and spoke positive words to them telling them everything was going to be all right. As the big cloud of darkness got closer I turned to walk my children into the house. I told them to sit on the couch and lets pray together. They had no idea what was going on. While we prayed the room filled with darkness and everything got silent. I began to smell a weird funny smell something like I never smelled before. The children started to sneeze and nose started to run. Everything in my home started to get really dusty and that moment I just knew what was happening outside. I was the biggest dust storm ever. I told the children to get something to cover their face and try not to breath in the dust. I knew it a very hard task to do because dust was flying everywhere. There was just no way around it. After hours had passed the storm was still going on. We all needed to eat. I started thinking about what to cook but I knew it wouldn’t be anything major. It would very dusty in the kitchen and pots, bowls, pant, and spoons would be covered in dust. It would be very unsanitary to cook in a dusty kitchen and dust falling and mixing in your food. At that moment in thought I kind of gaged. After all that thinking I ended up fixing the kids a little quick snack. While I was watching them eat I was still wondering when was this entire going to be over? And how long all of this was going to last? This is a very stressful situation. I looked out the window, well at least I tried and everything was covered. I started to think about work daycare and my children getting to school. They can’t walk in this type of disaster and neither can. I was thinking when everything dies down people would come outside and we could all put our heads together and come up with a plan to clean the part of towns that were covered. I just couldn’t wait till everything was cleared up. As time passes my family and I just sat and waited, sat and waited, sat and waited, just till someone went outside and said something. After hours of sitting I than heard a voice outside. I got so excited and rushed to the window when I found a lady yelling for help because the dust was so strong. I opened my door and offered her to come into my home. She came in my home in a panic saying no one will survive if they go outside. I tried to calm her down and make her fill comfortable. Time has than passed and I began to see a change in the women’s breathing. It became shorter and heavier. I kept asking her was she all right and she would respond yes and kin of close her eyes. I didn’t want her to fall asleep because I was beginning to think the dust she was breathing in was affecting her. I was getting nervous as the women just laid on the couch she was beginning to drift away. I just watched as she began to really just stop breathing at all. I felt really bad for the women and I had much respect for her. It was a very sad thing to see and even tragic for my children to see. I covered the women with a blanket and left her alone. I just knew she wasn’t the only one that was suffering. All these people out here are being called okis and you know that’s not right. I’m really writing this letter saying this is just a biiiig disaster and put us in your prayers. This to shale pass. I am a very strong women and im looking to get my family out of this soon. I have to go now dust is covering the paper. If the paper is looking dirty you know why. Ill contact you with another letter soon. Love you lots.
Love Your Best Friend
