To Whom It May Concern:
My name is Shalia Elizabeth Monroe, and this is my confession as to my part in bringing about Armageddon. Two months after the nuclear explosives detonated beneath our major cities, civilization here on Earth has collapsed. I anticipate I will soon join the millions, perhaps billions, of the dead. For anyone who is not aware of the truth of what happened, I want to set the record straight. I am uniquely qualified to do so as I am one of the many people responsible for the loss of life, and perhaps, the loss of Earth itself.
We are done. Earth is dead. And I helped put us in this position. With everything that’s happening now, I will probably be just another body on the pile before long. You might think it’s just what I deserve. You’d be right.
All I can say at this point is I am so very sorry. I really, truly am. It’s not much, certainly not enough to make up for what I allowed to happen. Even if I had said something and they’d shut me up before it got to anyone’s ears, at least I could have claimed I tried. But I didn’t. To my eternal shame, I didn’t even try.
