By Any Means Necessary Part 26

Sampson could barely make out the red flashing lights coming up behind him,the 52 Chevy was in the ditch about a half mile from his home,the Rescue Squad had pull up after a call came in from the State Patrol.Billy Bob, Sampson his best friend since the Korean War,was working overtime applying bandages to Sampson wounds,Sampson after deciding to go back into that world of drugs and alcohol was again on the brink of death,Minnie and her children were running toward the accident tears streaming from their eyes,for they already knew that Sampson had gone back to that world.Clem the  State Patrolman also Billy Bob's brother stopped them before they could see the blood and guts,but prayers and God's grace were already in the works.All Minnie and the kids could see or hear were the lights and wail of the rescue truck speeding off towards Wilmington to the Colored hospital.

This piece succeeds in bringing the reader back to a whole different time & place. I never lived there & wouldn’t want to… but very good job in transporting me, Mac.
Keep at it!
