“At 13:57 local time, a low yield nuclear warhead exploded in the city of Chongjin, North Korea.

A long standing military target. Chongjin is home to some 532,000 men, women, and children.

This city has survived a number of wars. It will not survive this.

But her people will.

As 13:57 and .00001 microseconds, half a million Koreans seemed to materialize on a hilltop 35 miles away from the blast.

They were carried there . . .

One at a time, sometimes two . . .

At a hair's breadth short of the speed of light . . .

By one man . . .

The Flash. The Fastest Man Alive.”
