The US government got in on the act Monday, denying the possibility of the end times approaching. Kindly, they deigned to not bring up legitimately scary events in their reassurance that no, the world isn’t going to end.
Whoever wrote it though, I do like this:
Apocalypse is my personal devil. Some like to think the devil is following them around, personally hounding them until they turn to evil. Makes you even feel a bit important, despite the horror that should imply. Apocalypse fills the same void for others, makes us special somehow – the world we’ve shared with millions of others over the millennia – now after all that, it’s ending, and it’s happening to us. Now.
