He knew the end was near as darkness closed in. He gasped for air but the rope was tight around his neck. The faces of his mother and father flashed across his mind.

I'm not familiar with this but so far, I enjoy reading you fictional stories. That picture of what looks like a child trapped in rubbles is so disturbing. Is it real?

Rosebelle: This is fiction format called 55 in which you have to write a story in 55 words. The picture below is is of a baby from BHOPAL GAS Tragedy which happened in India in 1984. I have participated in a blogging competition and my group has designed the magazine cover and our cover story covers the tragedy.
