"The Modern-Day Saul" is a short story about Miles, a young man caught up in the fury of the protests in America, who transforms his misplaced anger into violence. This happens from the negative influence of like-minded individuals he finds online and meets in person. Miles starts attacking street preachers at the protests due to his misplaced anger, earning the nickname "No God." At one protest Miles goes to attack another preacher but someone stops him and pushes him to the ground. Miles cracks his head against the ground, becoming blind as a result. During his journey into darkness he hears the voice of God and has to deal with the consequences of his actions. Author's Note: I got the idea for this story after seeing the riots during 2020. I wanted to know how young people could get caught up in destroying their own neighborhood or others so I watched their videos online. Hearing their stories helped me develop the Miles character. The rest of the story comes from the New Testament of The Bible regarding the story of Saul, who persecuted Christians mercilessly.
