“I'm sure it takes a special suit to go outside now. I wish I could explain what the beach smelled like!”
I fully expect this letter to be floating around, landing long enough for a random stranger to read it and toss it into the wind.
Hi. I'm Dawn- I helped cause these ruins. I never had kids because I saw chaos early. I tried to help you, but nobody listened. They were all convinced that we were living in "end times", which is a bible reference. I wonder, do any still exist? I am curious as to what comforts your fears now. Even our elected officials thought we were doomed; instead of attempting change, we instead seemed to embrace death to get to a place called heaven. We made promises; but it was too little, too late. I'm sure it takes a special suit to go outside now. I wish I could explain what the beach smelled like! I never experienced the opulence of some, but I don't think I missed anything. Truth is, you can't take it with you, and people remember you for what you did when you were alive. There was a brilliant man once, who spoke too soon to be heard. Oh how I wish we'd listened. Just know that some of us wanted to help you. I tried. I suppose I just didn't try hard enough.
