    She is a very entertaining person, who can keep people captivated for hours with her anecdotes. She also enjoys journaling, and she could keep a detailed account of our six weeks in the shelter. It could be like Anne Frank’s diary, and we could all become famous! Nevertheless, I could retell the story anyways without needing her. While she would be an interesting and amusing person for the bunch, I just don’t think she brings anything vital to the table. I’m counting her out in my list of people…

As the mushroom cloud gets higher the winds get stronger and…
