A: Surviving the initial onslaught of a disaster is only the tip of the proverbial iceberg when it comes to being a survivor. You made it through the hordes of Zombies and you watched helplessly as friends, family, and fellow humans around the world succumbed to the virulent plight that now roams the planet in constant search of human flesh.
You gave up everything you owned and left home to travel the road in search of other survivors, but only came across a handful along the way. Some of these survivors were thieves and murderers, few of them were good people like you. More than once did you awake to find your belongings gone or a knife to your throat. You made it through the months of searching for some far off Eden, untouched by the darkness that surrounds all else… but all you found was rubble and the stink of death.
And here you are, everyone you used to know is dead. Your friends, your family, neighbors, the kid that delivered your paper, they are all gone. The only things you can claim possession of are the things on your back: a backpack full of dirty clothes, a knife, water-bottle, small medical kit, scraps of food, and a baseball bat that is on it’s last legs…
This is where being a survivor really begins. Surviving isn’t just about making it through a disaster or life-altering event; it’s about continuing on afterward and never giving up hope. It’s about the fight that you will never stop fighting, and the belief that someday you may win. You may be one of the last remaining people on Earth and the future of humankind rests heavily in your hands, the choices you make now are among the most important you will make in your life. Will you continue on, or will you call it a day?
It is now up to you to rebuild and improve upon the world that you once knew, to forge new and better relationships with the land, to pick the world up by the scruff of the neck and tell it “No, you will not defeat me.” It is time for you to enjoy the last of the Twinkies.
