The Glowing Heart

A policeman in Tokyo walked along a neon lit street of the downtown sector of the city.

When suddenly all the neon lights went out.

Startled, Aso looked around.

A light was shining in the middle of the street.

And the light was emanating from a live beating giant sized human heart suspended in mid-air about 10 feet off the ground.

People screamed.

And then the heart vanished.

And the neon lights went back on.

Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin was looking out the window of his office in The Kremlin.

There seemed to be trouble with Moscow’s electrical grid tonight for the lights kept going on and off.

And now the light had once again gone off in his office.

Even the building’s own generator which was supposed to kick in during such circumstances didn’t seem to be working.

Putin looked out towards the night towards the sky to view the star light.

It was then that he saw the eerie luminous purple light.

He looked in the direction of where the light was coming from.

It was coming from a live beating giant sized human heart suspended in mid-air about 30 feet off the ground.

The heart vanished.

And the lights of Moscow came back on.

Rome, Italy.

The Cardinal noticed that something seemed to be wrong with the Eternal City’s electrical grid tonight.

The lights kept going off.

So the Cardinal lit himself a candle and kept writing.

Suddenly the candle went out for no reason.

And then a light emanated from outside his third floor office window in the Vatican.

He noticed an eerie luminous purple glow.

He walked towards the window.

He gasped.

For there outside the window suspended in mid-air was a live beating giant sized human heart.

Then both the purple light and the heart vanished.

And the lights of Rome came back on.

And the candle on his desk mysteriously lit up again on its own.

A soldier in the Algerian Army drove his tanks through the streets of Algiers looking for signs of trouble.

The government was afraid that the public anti-government protests that were starting to emerge all over North Africa and the Middle East might soon hit Algeria.

The neighbourhood sector that his tank was patrolling- the lights of the neighbourhood suddenly went out.

The soldier thought to himself, Is this a sign of trouble? And if it was, should he fire upon his fellow countrymen?

About 30 feet away, he noticed a purple glow.

He looked up.

And gasped.

The eerie light was coming from a beating giant human heart suspended in mid-air about 10 feet off the ground.

Then the heart and the purple light vanished.

And the lights of the neighbourhood came back on.

The freshman first term Congressman was walking outside the Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C.

He was feeling discouraged. The atmosphere in Congress was so vitriolic and acerbic and so partisan.

A Democrat said this. A Republican said that.

Democrat and Republican. Republican and Democrat.

Was no one willing to say, I’m an American first and foremost?

And when did it happen in America that a member of an opposing party was no longer viewed as a fellow American but rather as an enemy combatant on U.S. soil?

A house divided against itself shall not stand.

The lights went out in the Lincoln Memorial.

The Congressman looked up.

About 30 feet above him was an eerie luminous purple light.

But where the light was coming from filled him with terror.

It was a giant live beating human heart suspended by itself in mid-air

Suddenly the heart and the purple light vanished.

But the lights did not go back on in the Lincoln Memorial.

And the freshman Congressman’s own heart started palpitating severely.

To be continued.
