Title Lightning
Description LIGHTNING Clara J Degraff Honorable Mention Non Professional Personal Recollection Early one Sunday morning on a gloomy day, I was standing at our north window in Manti. It had rained some during the night and there was lingering lightning. The ominous clouds to the east were dense and black. Suddenly there was a bright flash. "Mother, lightning just struck the Temple'" I exclaimed. Mother didn't even look up from reading the paper. "No, it didn't, dear. You're imagining again." But I could see some wisps of black smoke from the east tower! Grabbing a coat as I ran, I jumped on my brother's bike and began furiously pedaling. It was a good mile across town, and then the Temple Hill to climb. I left the bike at the bottom and ran up the roadway, breathlessly climbing the stone steps to the top The Temple was always carefully locked, but now the huge east doors stood open. I darted in, then went left up the stairs. I continued to climb quickly until I reached the bottom of the tower. In the little room, I could hear voices from above, but I didn't go to the ladder. Immediately a man came down, facing me as he carefully negotiated the rungs.

"You don't belong in here!" I was very blunt. 14
