I wrote this piece for fun, a what if these things happen as I was watching CNN. I won't explain further, only I did this sometime October or November of 2015. When my old publisher put out a call for a sci-fi anthology, I tweaked this little story and submitted sometime June or was it July? I'm no longer certain, but then it didn't get published. The anthology never came about. When I got my rights back to my stories, this was one of them. I hadn't read this since I'd submitted it, and when I finally did, I got scared of what I had written.
No, this is not horror, not like The Hunt. This one's far scarier for me. And I wrote it.
