The Final Countdown
Well, here we are folks...it would seem that powers stronger than ourselves are now acting upon us at a breathtaking rate. The signs of strain are everywhere...you can see it in the news daily, feel it in your personal relationships, and watch it unfold in the very realm in which we writers, readers, and thinkers peddle our OPINIONS to anyone who will take a look.
The rollercoaster that we find ourselves on has been on this track for a very long time...it has been a slow and methodical climb up, and now the decent begins and the ride speeds up...anxiety, the rush and fear mount as our surroundings suddenly blur and are no longer familiar to us.
We are caught in our own isolated confusion, sitting next to strangers...car after car, after car for as long as the track stretches in front and behind us. "TRUST NO ONE" and yet, to trust no one we ultimately must include ourselves and are left with nothing at all...perhaps it is good advice or perhaps it is the very thing that those "powers" which we have attempted to understand would like have us do. Divide and conquer...you might say it's the oldest trick in the book. But then again, it's only my opinion...
