I sat there in awe. My books dropped to the floor, and I thought, “How the new president going to handle this?”
My mom walked into the room, “Why aren’t you in school?”
“It wasn’t a prank. Did you see the news? The report started scrolling as a marquee on the bottom of the TV screen.
My mom also stared in awe. And then the quietly stated: “I’m calling your stepfather now…”
