It wasn’t our fault, and I knew that, but it felt like it was. The Black Blizzard had taken everything from us, and now our home? What a greedy monster.

Jones was responsible for the death of 918 people, including 276 children. By promising utopia and a better life, he gained hundreds of followers, which led to the creation of ‘The People’s Temple’. Growing up, Jones didn’t receive much attention from his parents, which left Jones mostly to himself. His dad had very little interest in him, and his mother was very busy working two jobs.

Tragedy struck again and again that month. Grieving and sad I arrived at camp Sealth ill, fighting off night fevers, waking up covered in sweat, and wearing 3 or four layers of clothing at a time. If it wasn 't for Rocket I do not know how my first week would have gone. I had a positive, extremely capable mentor, who took me, not at my A game, and shaped me into a better intern that week.
