Dear Mom,
As of now I am laying in a hospital bed. But don't worry, I am not as badly injured as the others. I'm not quite sure what happened at 8 am this morning but I know that it will change American lives all across the country and lead us to war. I was in my home doing my morning chores and heard an unspeakable noise. It blasted through the windows and nearly knocked the house down. I heard screaming, crying, and people calling for their loved ones. I heard ambulance sirens and police yelling "i found a body." Bodies piled up everywhere. I saw dust and debris covering the streets. I was at lost for words and scared for my life. After an hour later the second bombing happened. This time, it sent my body in the air only to knock me back down which caused excruciating pain. I couldn't move. It felt like an eternity until someone found my laying there helpless. When I was taken to the hospital, I gained the inside on what happened. I watched President Franklin Roosevelt coordinate a speech on how the Japanese have bombed us and we are declaring war. I am writing to you today in hopes you will receive my letter and come see me. Best of luck.
Love, your daughter
