No, that was the ceiling caving in on her, pinning her beneath rock, rubble, a shattered beam. Pain was present. It was there. She knew it. But it was distant.
As if it were trying to penetrate the thickest fog surrounding her. Her death. Her eyelids fluttered sluggishly as she struggled to remain conscious, too afraid that if she gave in to the encroaching darkness, death would win the ultimate battle. She saw it on a daily basis. Nor was she in denial of the enormous risk she took by working in a country not only at constant war with neighboring countries, all with different agendas, beliefs and differing levels of fanaticism, but also divided within their own borders, each region determined to overtake the entire country and force their will on those with opposing viewpoints.
And then there were those who needed no reason to murder, terrorize and victimize their fellow countrymen. Those were the worst of all. They reeked of fanaticism, and their only agenda was to strike fear in the hearts of all who crossed them. They wanted glory.
They wanted to be feared by their enemy and revered by other factions too afraid to engage them in battle.
They wanted the world to know of them. Who they were. They wanted people to whisper their name as if afraid of conjuring them by speaking of the monsters too loudly.

The U. Around-the-clock coverage every time they launched another attack. And with that attention came ambition for more. Such power made leaders of oil-rich countries nervous.
So much so that an unprecedented summit had been called, bringing together sworn enemies to discuss the ever-growing problem of a fanatical group with power, wealth, military might and unprecedented numbers joining with each passing day.
Men and women from all corners of the earth. What could possibly inspire such hatred? Such a thirst for pain, violence, hurt and suffering? Honor shuddered as the numb shell surrounding her showed signs of fragmenting, and for a moment pain assaulted her, taking her breath.
Black crept into her vision, the light growing dimmer and dimmer. Tears burned like acid, but she refused to give in to them. She was alive. At least for now. None of the other relief workers had been as fortunate. And for that matter, perhaps her fellow relief workers had received mercy from a higher being.
Why had she been left to suffer?
Why was she without mercy and grace? What sin had she committed to survive only to be condemned to hell, a fate worse than death? A cold chill dug deep into her battered body and clung tenaciously to her bones, her blood. She was freezing from the deepest recesses of her soul when around her the world was on fire, the flames of hell greedily consuming its victims.
Here she was whining because she was alive. It had to mean something. Her life had purpose. There was still much for her to do.
Never had she felt so ashamed. What would her family think? Her death would cause them endless pain.
She was the baby. The youngest of six siblings and she was dearly loved by all. They might not like that she put herself at such risk, but they understood her calling and supported her.
