Today everyone will wake up. We will want to crawl back under the covers to hide, but we won’t. Something is stopping us. Remember what that something is. Today is a day of many days. Soon, the sun will swell into a red giant. It won’t remember a time when it was a perfect blue circle of ice.

When gravity fails us, our words will tug the universe. It will cradle us in a blanket of stars and sing the song of us. We will remember.
