A short story about a man and his brother.
A US Marshal receives word that an unidentified witness and family are coming to his small western town to be placed in the Witness Protection Program. Louis Keane has never dealt with a WITSEC case. Most relocations are handled by marshals in metropolitan areas. This case is classified as Priority One, meaning that the witness must receive 24-hour protection until further notice.In the middle of the night during a fierce snowstorm, the witness and family arrive on a private jet at a small airport, and a man, woman and child are delivered into Keane’s protective custody. The woman is obviously sick, the older man says little, and a young boy is asleep. Keane is thrown further off his game by who actually delivers them. The CIA?The marshal and his father, a semi-retired Chief Marshal, face the problem of security: where to house a Priority One witness out of the public eye in a small town. Solution: the senior Keane offers his home overlooking the Swift River as a refuge, and they eventually find out why this particular witness has been transferred to the middle of nowhere. The witness is one of several who are set to offer critical testimony that just might help rescue the United States from its sudden nosedive toward democratic, moral, and economic collapse.An Ultra Far-Right individual has ascended to the presidency. Many in his administration have been encouraging white nationalism–blatant racism–to shake the foundation of the country, a nation founded and built by immigrants. The administration’s criminal activities in collusion with foreign dictators, the aggressive actions that the president has pursued toward countries unwilling to bend to his demands, and his schemes to re-route billions of dollars from the US Treasury to pay bribes, blackmail, and bilk the nation–these and other treasonous activities must be exposed by an American resistance movement, its members arising to save the nation.The Witness is a heartwarming story about individuals and families who come together during a difficult time to help a witness stay alive for a return trip to Washington, a return trip on which the fate of the nation may rest. It is a tale of courage–of what it means to be patriots–a story of sacrifice, of commitment…a testament to the meaning of true love.
