Fall out -- Dangerous

Alert! Dallas/Ft. Worth
You are under the Gun
Your Next Breath Could Be
Your last one.

When the Columbia Shuttle Blew Up
North Central Texas
Received the Fall-Out

If you breathe these fumes
into your lungs
Within 48 hours NO OXYGEN
You die!

Do not breathe or touch
any debris
That falls out of the sky

Columbia Blows Up

I was watching the sky overhead when the Columbia blew up - saw this long jet trail - perfectly straight - all of a sudden it separated - that's the only explanation I have - went into more than one trail - NO SOUND - my twin sis, a block and a half away, was asleep and was awakened by a boom - didn't know what had happened until a customer came in and told me the horrible news - they warned us to avoid anything falling from the sky - it mostly fell in East Texas - nothing around here (live 12 miles due south of downtown Fort Worth). It was scary though, and these words bring back the fear, the sadness I felt - well done.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla. :(

Pretty dramatic. Don't worry. No one will be hurt except the brave astronauts who died.
