Conditioned To Be Scared
The bell rings and the hallways become a sea of students.
Noisey sounds bounce off the lockers, consisting of gossip and chatter.

Terrified, the classrooms become a safe place, barricading and locking the doors.
“What's wrong?” “ Why are we hiding?”
Asked the confused little boy holding a popped balloon.
