The world is poised for change, will you be a part of it or will you become a footnote in its history?
*The newly built USS Gerald R. Ford, the first in a line of new super carriers intended to replace the aging Nimitz class carriers, sits in the dry dock. Thousands of spectators listen as President Erik Braxton tells his speech for the christening of the carrier. First lady Kimberlynn Braxton holds the wine bottle in her hand, waiting to smash it against the hull.
As President Braxton finishes his speech and his wife readies the wine bottle, a large explosion rips through the crowd of spectators vaporizing many instantly. Shrapnel is sent flying in all directions and tears into Braxton's arm. He clinches it with his hand before he is surrounded with Secret Service agents and shoved onto the ground.
The smell of searing flesh and the sounds of screaming civilians are strong and terrible. Smoke rose up for half a mile into the air, lingering above the blast zone. Some spectators started attending the wounded while others dialed 9-1-1 and alerted the paramedics. Police officers attending the ceremony jumped into action and started helping the wounded.
After 2 minutes ambulances and fire trucks arrived and started loading the wounded onto ambulances or patching them up on the spot before sending them off. The President and the first lady were loaded into the armored limo and driven off to a safe house.
After hours, the wounded had all been checked into hospitals and the dead were accounted for. 17 people were killed while 300 people were sent to the hospital, alot of which were in critical and serious conditions.
This was a tragedy, and somehow Erik knew in his heart who was behind it.. Sure enough, the next day reports from agents in the field reported that the GLA had been behind the attack and had claimed responsibility. This shocked the world because even America was not safe from GLA attack..*
