In Progress Detail of Dyptich illustration for Elijah Bossola's 'New Generation' by Michele Tecco

That was it. The last words I read before everything went black. "I'm sorry." After that, my soul no longer existed. Unfortunately, my body still did. It lay on the ground.
All of a sudden, I felt life again. My eyes opened, and I stood up. All I could think about was death. I thought about how stupid I was before this moment; I should have given myself to them. I didn't understand then. Now, I do. A new generation was forming.
I turned around and saw the bike. It was the bike with the foolish note that was from my mother. She wrote it before she died right after. Now, she is truly alive.
I hopped on the bike, and traveled until I could find any survivors. Now, that was what I cared about. Teaching them to understand.
