Huddled together everyone knelt silently. A firm finger over our mouths reminded us to stay quiet. Collectively, we held our breaths.

I whispered, "Don't let it be our door!"

The nervous door handle jiggled.

Again, I whispered, "Not our door!"

Once more, the door handle moved. This time with gusto, then fell still. Eternal moments passed like seamless hours.

I murmured, "Someone has to halt this insanity!"

Shattering the eeriness, the announcement bell chimed, "ALL CLEAR! THE LOCKDOWN HAS ENDED!"

We breathed deep as I encouraged my young charges, "Okay, kids, everyone back to their desks. The drill is over."
