The caves started shaking, the lights went out, the kids started screaming. My God... Mister Pollack went outside to see what was going on. When he came back in, he told us what he saw. Clouds. Mushroom clouds. It's finally happened. The end of the world.Journal of Carrie Delaney

Carrie Delaney was a fourth grade teacher at the Early Dawn Elementary school in Washington, D.C.

Background[]

On October 23, 2077, she was one of several chaperones including Claudia, Mr. Cob and Mr. Pollack escorting half the school's students on a field trip to the Lamplight Caverns.[1] As the group was packing to leave, the lights suddenly went out and the cave shook. Mr. Pollack went outside to investigate and when he returned, reported that he saw mushroom clouds.[1]

Ms. Delaney kept journal holotapes of subsequent time spent in Lamplight Caverns, reporting that over the following weeks, the other chaperones who ventured outside never returned, until she was one of the last surviving adults caring for the 82 students in the cave system.[2] Approximately one month after the bombs dropped, her student Jason Grant wrote in his own diary that Ms. Delaney also left and had not returned.[3]
