A Silent Nation

The crowd gathered in front of the podium was silent, all too stunned to speak.

“Where is John Connor?” the metal faced figure repeated.

All across the nation, people were glued to their TVs. Not to hear the acceptance speech of their new president as they had expected, but instead to watch, some with horror, others with sheer amazement, this scene unfold. A scene many of them could have sworn was just like a rather popular film.

“I will only ask this one more time. Where is John Connor?” With that some life was brought back to the crowd. Mothers held their children close, courageous souls looked around for things they could use if it came down to a fight. One crazy person yelled out, “Which John Connor?”

This did not amuse the figure at the podium.
