"The large central building was ringed by bright
colors. It looked like a parking lot filled with cars. When the plane
dipped lower, the cars turned out to be bodies. Scores and scores of
bodies —hundreds of bodies—wearing red dresses, blue T shirts, green
blouses, pink slacks, children's polka-dotted jumpers.
Couples with their arms around each other, children holding parents.
Nothing moved. Washing hung on the clotheslines.
The fields were freshly plowed. Banana trees and grape vines were
flourishing. But nothing moved."
