TAKE ME TO THE GARDEN, I'm headed to the Draft!" Since we still need to travel to the City, the only question left to ask? How do we REBUILD FORT KNOX? EXCERPT FROM THE NEW YORK TIMES BEST SELLING AUTHOR @storyteller 's HISTORICAL ACCOUNT OF THE WAR ON THE MECCA November 1941 - WAR ON NEW YORK IS DECLARED! Where were you? A year later, after all of the carnage and loss of life, the question still triggers sharp feelings of despair and fright among the tormented population of the North Knickshton. An experience which began with much optimism and peace and which ended with a fire of the last bullet, the dropping of the last bomb and the falling of the last brick. Sad story? Far from it. As resilient as a people can be, they stand tall - bloodied and scarred - but tools in hand, resources replenished and finances regained to rebuild above the rubble where a great Garden once stood. They vow to rebuild the Mecca. [Photo: A young Kristaps Porzingis listening to news of WAR in his NYC residence. Tragically, this is the last known photo before the infamous Maverick Cuban Nuclear Missile v.13 dropped and decimated every home and structure in the ground zero which included Madison Square Garden. Most experts believe the blast would have disintegrated Kristaps Porzingis as the only thing recovered under the debris was a plastic knee ligament suspected of coming from the young child's surgically repaired ACL.] December 5, 1941 - The Quiet Before the Storm Before the tanks truly rolled into the streets of Knickshton, this humble nation enjoyed the small moments of joy from news abroad where their soldiers, in uniform, fought to drive away the axis forces of hate attempting to shake the very foundation of a population who have learned to become hardened and strong after decades of struggle and impoverishment. [Photo: A bustling city, optimistic populace and a symbol and structure of a proud people, the Garden as it stood before the Coli/Media Axis Air Raids] February 1, 1942 - Cataclysm and Carnage Unable to keep the enemy at bay, the onslaught of air raids caused little damage; the will of the nation was strong. On one ominous afternoon, Axis pilot, Adrian Wojnarowski, was tasked with the convert mission to obtain optimal position and release a single nuclear payload that caused a major shift in the War. That tragic mission was accomplished. [Recovered footage: War correspondents Walt Frazier and Mike Breen, while in the middle of a routine report of the street side battle, happened to be the lucky, or unlucky reporters who captured the moment of impact of the Maverick Cuban Nuclear Missle v.13] [Photo: Analysis of damage; 4) The Trey Burke Shopping District; 3) Media Mogul DPresidential's poorly received "Tim Hardaway is an Asset"building complex; 2) Neighborhood where the Courtney Lee Temple of Confucianism once stood; 1) "Ground Zero", Northern part of New York City - area home to what once was Madison Square Garden as well as young, often bedridden Kristaps Porzingis, brother of military general Janis Porzingis] June, 1942 - The Silver Lining of Destruction's Glove Amidst the smoke and fields of fire, hope and potential appeared to hang by the thread of a ripped jersey. Prime Minister Scott Perry was rumored to be preparing a surrender speech to be read the 82nd night of fighting when news broke of reports of various military and political victories in and around the nation. Medal of Honor recipient Mitch "Milk and Cookies" Robinson single handedly blocked waves of enemy fighter jets from causing more damage to the war-torn cities. Military general Janis Porzingis was discovered to have been leaking top secret military secrets to the enemy and was placed on trial where he was convicted of violating various "fukk nikka" statutes. Credible reports of a surplus of additional military resources totaling $71 million, the rumors of potential military relief from the nations of Durant and Irvington, as well as potential development of the powerful Draft Lottery Uraniam 235 ICBM ended the fighting when, in response, the enemy retreated and called off their attack. The Knickshton populace rejoiced in the ravaged streets, looked toward the future and promised to rebuild and enact revenge on every enemy nation that attempted to drive Knickerbockers into the sea. We... Will... Rebuild... What was once a dream, to experience the era of Knickshton greatness told in the stories from the fathers of this great nation, will be enjoyed by the survivors of this carnage. That day will be soon. And, in the future, when asked about "where were you?", it won't bring feelings of sadness; it'll bring feelings of pride. SOON...
