It was a hot day in the summer of 2019 and my brother and I were walking home from school. We both had got an emergancy brodcast come on our phones “Commencing at the siren, any and all crime, including murder, will be legal for 12 continuous hours. Police, Fire, and Emergency Medical Services will be unavailable until tomorrow morning at 7 a.m. when the Purge concludes. Blessed be our New Founding Fathers and America, a nation reborn. May God be with you all.” We started running home after hearing a gun shot and screams following it. Both of us knew what was happening by then.
When we got home our family was hiding in a room. When we walked in to check on the they all aimed our guns at us. “WAIT!” My brother shouted as one of my younger siblings was about to pull the triger on their gun. They all slowly put down their guns and my mom ran up and hugged us. We shut the door and they gave me and my brother our weapons and we all sat in a spot in the room. Me and my brother where sitting next to the door on opisite sides on one knee. Someone opened the door trying to get in. I shot up in the air to try and scare them off but it didnt work all it did was make them try harder. Everyone hid but me and I slowly opened the door. When I open the door there was a man standing there with a knife. I held up my pistol “is there something you need” I said while aiming my gun at him. My oldest brother slowly put my hand with the gun down and smiled “just seeing if you guys are still ok.” He said looking at the rest of us smiling.
We had all got hungry and desided to eat a turky sandwich. Me and my brother had to go out and get cheeze for my baby sister. Before going to the store we made sure to get our hoddies and put our pistols in our pocket. On the way there we saw a lot of people get stabbed shot and stabed. I felt like i was walking threw a war. Me and my brother started tearing up at the sight of a man who was standing over his wife and daughters dead bodys crying. We didnt tear up cause we felt bad for him but what made us tear up was the fact that we watched him commit suicide. When we started walking home we stoped at the man making sure that he was dead. After a while we desided to continue going home. When we got home we told our mom about what we saw. We all sat down and talked about it then continued eating to get our minds off of it.
At 6:00 we heard a knock at the door and opened it suprizingly to find our older sister. She was beat up ha bullit holes in her shoulders and stab wounds in her hands and all bloody. I quickly rushed her inside and our mom got our fist-aid kit and bandiged her up. Thats when i remembered that dad was at work when the purge started and got worryed until my brother reminded me that he was a cop.
After all of us calmed down we asked my sister what had happened. “I was wolking home from work.” She said shaking a little “when I acsadently bumped into a family. They beat me up cut me and shot me without heasatation.” We all froze in fear at her words. My sister has never come home so beat up and she works in a very dangerous job. None of my family knows what it is because she said she didnt want to tell us yet but she always comes back looking horrible.
