I wiped away a tear again as I stared at a picture of my parents, my grandma, my sister, and me. We were all having such a good time on that day. December 12th, 2016. We were celebrating my 20th birthday. We had decided to go to the movies, then out to eat, and then bowling because we didn't want the night to end just yet. That was definitely one of my funnest birthdays, and one of the last happy memories I have. Now a year later, and they're all gone. I never imagined I'd be spending my birthday without them, or any day really. I knew bad things were bound to happen after November of last year but I didn't imagine things to get this bad. Whenever I fall asleep, I dream of life before everything went wrong. It wasn't the best but it was damn sure better than this nightmare. I sometimes think that maybe this is a nightmare. A long, painful nightmare and I just haven't found a way to wake up. Nothing will ever be able to help me fully understand all this. Not the tents. Not the still overwhelming stench of rotting flesh. Not the continuous yelling of the officers. Not the sound of my growling stomach. Not even the fact that I'll probably never see my family again. At least not alive. That's a fear that's always in the back of my mind, going outside to do my work and finding one of them piled up- "Hey, nigger! Get off your lazy ass and come salute President Trump!"

Yeah, I meant for it to be short. The story is a thought interrupted, and making it any longer wouldn't have had the same effect. Thanks for reading!
