July 19, 2013. Left Behind

At that moment it was hard to distinguish what to take and what to leave. Objects had to be evaluated by their practical use as anything with emotional value would just end up being dead weight. Clothes, food, water, first aid, money... without second thought he left behind furniture, electronics, pictures, books. Turning to the window sill he paused for 5 long seconds, 5 seconds he didn't have to spare. Staring at the jar full of origami stars that had been there forever, something he never got over, he was never able to throw away. He never thought this would be the moment he'd move on, when he was left with no choice.
