One one-thousand. They take what they want. Who they want. No one is safe, no one is secure. When They come, They take. Loyalties gone, loves lost, a world swiped away with a scream. Two one-thousand. When They come, They take. Sadness, sacrifice, a way of life, vanished. Choices strung together like linen on the line. Three one-thousand. It takes one moment for life to change, one second, one choice that changes your world, your planet. A blink and everything has shifted. Four one-thousand. One second can define you, mold you, make you. One second and you are gone. Taken. One of Us.
