If I Go Will They Miss Me

On January 14th, 2020, a Delta Airlines Boeing 777 jetliner dumped jet fuel on several Southeast Los Angeles elementary schools. In spite of these dangers, and the friends it affected, Lil’ Ant’s fascination with the sky is boundless. He is fascinated by Pegasus, the Greek mythological creature. He dreams of flying like him and sees a mysterious group of airplane people who come out to fly every evening. His father begins to see his son’s interest in flying grow just like he once did when he was his son’s age. He understands that Lil Ant will be flying soon, urging him to bless his son’s upcoming flight with a father’s prayer meant for him and the entire community.
