I don't really know where to begin. Things have been so crazy, so implausible that I haven't had a moment just to step back and write. So I'll just do my best and gather my thoughts enough to at least say something:
Not just for myself, but for my family; for everyone. I'm afraid that the world is ending.
That's not just some overreaction, but like I'm legitimately worried. There has been all sorts of weird events going on around the world the past few days. We all thought it was just the sickness that had been spreading, but things have been so much worse.
Half the world has had major earthquakes, heavy storms, flooding, or worse. And so many people who had the mystery flu just suddenly dropped over dead. I don't just mean like a few thousands. I'm talking like...millions. Maybe even billions. I don't know, nobody knows yet. The news stations can only keep updated so much and they don't have any clue what is happening either.
I'm probably not making much sense, but I can't collect my thoughts. How could I?
Someone said something about heading into the city, but they weren't sure. I'm just worried about my parents, and my brother. And my friends. But they're in no shape to go anywhere. Heck, Dad is the only one who's even able to still get up out of bed. Mom and Jason have just been sleeping a lot, in between bouts of throwing up.
The internet stopped working a few days ago, so I can't even look up ways to try and help them. And I can't find out what else is happening outside of our little bubble. People are panicking all over the country, and the world. They want answers, but nobody seems to know what is happening. And everyone else has either died or is close to dying. I don't want my parents to die. I don't want anyone to die.
Someone on TV said that they think the entire coast line might break off into the ocean. I want to run, but where are we supposed to go? I just don't know what to do. I guess all I can do is be strong, and help Dad take care of the others. I'll have to take care of him too. I'm not sick at all, for some reason, and they're going to need me.
Time for me to be strong, even though I'm terrified. I have to be strong and try not to freak out like the rest of the world is.
The world is burning and I have to not freak out?
I don't know if I can do this...
