I was 8 years old when the terror first struck. I was reading on the floor of my bedroom. The window to the backyard had no screen and was open. I was told to leave it closed, but I loved the Delta breeze cooling the room and ruffling curtains. That night, the breeze wasn’t the only thing coming in. I looked up from my book to turn on the overhead light. That’s when a huge furry brown moth zoomed at my face, bounced off, and swooped around the dormant ceiling fan.
