I have my suspicions but, even if I’m right, there’s nothing I can do.
In some places, folks are rioting. In others, the faithful are praying because they believe themselves unraptured. This neighborhood, at least, is quiet.
I kneel and pick up a forgotten teddy bear.

@doctormikereddy: Great job using all 3 photo prompts!
When young I hugged him. When he could sit he hugged Bear. When he could walk Bear hung by a dangled paw. When he was hit Bear flew, then lay still. With him.
Later, I followed in his footsteps. Dangling Bear. Stepping out. Being hit. Flying. Bear stayed behind. I flew on. He hugged me.
