Twilight Zone: The Shelter Frank’s last words were, “Or you can stay in there and we’ll bust our way in.” I still remember the day, when this dreadful, and horrendous event occurred. It was the day when everything changed. The relationship of family was put to test, as well as the relationship of friends. It was July 14, 1959, when the whole country was put to the test. I recall the night, when everything was perfect. The beautiful starry night sky which was glowing in the dark night sky, and the graceful sounds of the wind whistling beneath my body. All my neighbors had come over to my house, to celebrate the joyous occasion of my birthday. Halfway throughout the party, my son had come up to us and mentioned that he heard the news anchor say, “Tune in to the conrad channel.” Of course, we were all concerned, and felt uneasy, and knew that it was time to make a run for it.
The fire spread from the O’Learys’ barn to the yards nearby. Soon it was spreading throughout the neighborhood. William Lee, a neighbor a block away, saw the fire and ran to Bruno Goll’s drugstore to turn in the fire alarm. Bruno Goll refused to turn in the alarm because he said the fire truck had already gone past. So instead of arguing, Lee went home to his family. At the courthouse the lookout on duty saw smoke, but thought nothing of it, thinking it was just Saturday's fire and there was no reason to be alarmed. Then he looked up and noticed it was a different fire and had his assistant strike the Box 342 for the fire department. Soon fire trucks were at the scene and attempted to put out the fire. The fire department’s Chief Marshal, Robert A. Williams got the engines to circle the fire to contain it. They got as close to the fire as they could until their arm hair was being burned and their
In “Barn Burning,” the author, William Faulkner, composes a wonderful story about a poor boy who lives in anxiety, despair, and fear. He introduces us to Colonel Satoris Snopes, or Sarty, a boy who is mature beyond his years. Due to the harsh circumstances of life, Sarty must choose between justice and his family. At a tender age of ten, Sarty starts to believe his integrity will help him make the right choices. His loyalty to family doesn’t allow for him to understand why he warns the De Spain family at such a young age. Faulkner describes how the Snopes family is emotionally conflicted due to Abner’s insecurities, how consequences of a father’s actions can change their lives, and how those choices make Sarty begin his coming of age into
