There is no contact with the outside world. Is there an outside world left? In the days leading up to the sudden darkness, there were war reports about Ukraine, with U.S. forces in combat with the Russian Army. How did things spin out of control like this? Our media’s talking heads didn’t have any answers either. They just looked at each other in disbelief.
Somewhere deep underground are the criminal leaders who pushed us over the brink. The United States has been at war with any number of countries since WW II. Why didn’t we try to end this warmongering before it was too late? It didn’t take too much brainpower to realize that the reasons they gave us for all these wars were lies. If only we had risen up.
I know the criminal leaders of both countries are safe somewhere in their underground bunkers. They have lights, water and food. Maybe they are sending scientists to the surface, all dressed up in their Hazmat suits, to look around and see what’s left.
I must admit, when I listen to my children crying, I wish these criminals the very worst. I hope that the radiation seeps into their high-tech bunkers and makes them sick. Or maybe that they kill each other, like they have killed our planet.
