and young adults.
She let the other volunteers know what Danny had said, then she grabbed the phone
in the break room, pressed the intercom button, and made the announcement to the whole
They had known the food shortage would happen sooner or later, but they'd been
hoping for later. There were still aisles full of canned goods, but the reality that they
couldn't live in the store forever was dawning on everyone at the same time.
