Generosity at the end of the world is a difficult trait to measure. Most traits are. Most are based on history. Most of history is absent of traits. However, the short time humans have walked the earth is full of measurable traits. Generously so.

What would it take for you to put others first when faced with judgment day? Who would you wish to be with at the time of destruction – your ultimate demise?

What if you were with the unapologetic? What if you were the last person on earth, full of hate, and surrounded by the unforgivable members of your history?

Narcissism, at the end of the world, is a difficult trait to measure. Being alone, on the inside, feels like the end of the world.

On the outside of a doomsday shelter, whether the end comes or not, will be less lonely for this colonel, teacher, reverend, and cabdriver – these so-called pallbearers.
