Listening to the agonizing screams surrounding him, Jeremiah pulled his shaking body from beneath the dead soldier who’d fallen on him. Lying on his stomach, his heart pounding, he begged God to allow him to survive this heinous place. The odds were against him ever witnessing another sunrise; the quickly growing pile of bodies blanketing the lush green grass far outnumbered the remnants of both armies still refusing to back down first. The lucky ones died instantly. Others suffered an excruciatingly slow demise; the relentless howls and moans from all across the open field instilled a terror in Jeremiah’s heart that he’d never known before.
