Local News - The War is Over!

Written By Daphne Longmire

Breaking News - We Won the War!

Attention all American citizens: war was sparked up by the dropping of Soviet bombs on U.S. territory. After a long half year, the invulnerable and proud U.S. has successfully survived this war. We have lost some lives and had our hardships but our country has made it to the end of what seemed like a century.

Among the hard ways of life due to war, some components of everyday life were shut off unexpectedly due to the war such as water systems and electricity. We had scare amounts of oil and gasoline left to use. We were uninformed about how long this war may last or how long the shortages were going to persist but we endured and won the war.

Thank you citizens for powering through, for staying spirited, and fasting in every way possible. The time has come to rejoice in our victory and celebrate our time we kept the United States sturdy and stable.

Locals such as Randy Bragg tell us how he survived the war and his story (located under Interview With Local Randy Bragg - War Life). Randy had a situation with highwaymen hurting his friend so he led out an attack to put their mischief to an end. He used what he had and captured the trouble making highwaymen saving his whole community from their harm. Towards the coming end of the war an army helicopter landed in his lawn and was informed that the war was finally over. These helicopters were inspecting and informing small towns about our triumphant win.

Our soldiers and our infantry fought through bullets and bombs to win the pride and success we have gained. Some lost their lives and fought their ultimate best for us. We will always respect them and what they have sacrificed for us.

The electricity and water works are slowly powering up again so try to contact family members and loved ones as soon as the phones power on. Congratulations for keeping calm and doing everything to survive the outage. Thank you for your sacrifice.

Interview with Local Randy Bragg - War Life

Interviewer: Hello Mr.Bragg, thank you for sitting down with us today.

Randy: Oh of course.

Interviewer: So when did you come to realize that you were the leader of your community and that it was your duty to help your family and friends get through the war?

Randy: I think I realized that I was the man who had to attend to my family's needs when a bomb was dropped by our town and we had to quickly come up with a plan to survive. I had to cope with what we had and fix together a water pump when the water and electricity went out.

Interviewer: And how did you comprehend all of this happening at once? Did you come to think that your family and friends might slowly die out and the war may last for a lifetime?

Randy: Not exactly. I didn't want to over think this situation and completely give up on my family. I had to bear through that nodus of a time and overcome the longanimity of the war.

Interviewer: And when did you decide that family always came first and that they were your number one priority?

Randy: I guess it was during the middle of the whole thing. I always had to go out and scavenge together food and supplies for my family's needs. They were the people that I vilipended my life for. Because my brother had died it was my privilege to succeed his job as being the man of his family.

Interviewer: Did you even have thoughts that you couldn't make it through the war and that you should just give up?

Randy: There were times where I would sit down and really take notice in how much I was sore and tired, but I kept my hopes up for the best and endured the abiding war because of my family. You know, there may come times where you have to disregard yourself in order to sustain a happy and content family which also may mean that you have to sacrifice a bit to keep them in a good environment.

Interviewer: And finally, was it hard to say goodbye to your family when the war had come to a finish and they went back home? You must've gotten used to them being around for so long and then you had to let them go.

Randy: It was tough not waking up each morning to the wide smiles of my niece and nephew and the smell of bacon scraped together with what we had by my sister-in law. It was nice to get to know them better for that long period of time, but not in the way I intended to unfortunately. I miss them sometimes but it was their time to get back home and get accustomed to life beyond the war.

Interviewer: Thank you for your time Randy I appreciate it.

Randy: Thanks it was a pleasure.
