Christ. I didn’t think I would see this day come. We’ve trained for it for years, knew that one day it would come, but we never really believed it’d finally be here. I had always just assumed they would burn themselves out in one big massive orgy of destruction. The papers and the conspiracy nuts would have a field day with it for sure, but at least the public wouldn’t know and casualties could be kept to a minimum.
Now I’m not so sure anymore.
I wish things had been different. I wish Bertrand were here still. I wish we hadn’t lost so many good men and women over this insanity. I was there when we first brought it through and I wish to God I had done what needed to be done then. But, being what it is, somebody else will need to take up that responsibility. I’m too old for what needs to be done now. May God have mercy on all our souls.
