Seeking one thing… to be left alone. The year is 2024. I struggle through the days after returning from my tours of war. My mind foggy, my emotions numb. Seeking one thing… to be left alone. As I stared out my front window, I began to come back into focus watching that mushroom cloud recede into the horizon. My fears vanished, my mind cleared, I could feel again. Thoughts raced into my head. Friends. Family. SURVIVAL.
I will let the protagonist tell you his story:
“I began writing this story, as soon as I realized the world would never be the same. Yes, I am sure there will be countless accounts of the events that took place in November, 2024. But those would relate to the leaders, governments and the prominent level of society. I wanted to write about the nobodies. Me and my friends. How we survived this event. How we were changed. The little people. So, if you are asking yourself, why should I read about some nobody, in California, and his nobody friends, and their ridiculous choices? Honesty. The version of events that will be released in the near future, may or may not be accurate. And will be colored by the choices of those in charge. If you do decide to read this, after falling into your hands, please don’t judge. We only did what we had to, to survive. – Blake Anderson”
