Feeling Alone?

by John Palm

I felt completely alone even though I was in a crowd. Not a big crowd or even a medium sized crowd but a smallish crowd. Even so, I felt alone. All alone. Then I looked up and everyone was looking at me. “Stop staring!” I screamed. Again I burst out, “To hell with you all and stop staring!” I don’t think I’ll ever be ask back to career day at my son’s elementary school.
