A Boy's Cry

An exerpt from A Boy's Cry:

"Help! Somebody help! My dad has been shot!" he screamed. Everything seemed dazed and hazy as he looked around him to see boys, girls, men and women, looking at him, some crying, some panicking, some moving around and only a few with chatter. He felt as if he was in a circle, spinning around him with no one to help. His world had come to an end.
