Note from The Future: I would like to apologize for using the “slice open your palm” trope. Don’t do that, folks. You’ll cut through tendons and might never be able to use the hand properly again.
Jon: But we live now in hard times, not end times.
We used to be able to grow out of believing in monsters. These days, we can’t take refuge in adulthood. The bogeymen really are out there. And yes, it’s scary. But the truth is that there have always been monsters. And we’re still here.
Each and every one of you has spent your whole life in a world with vampires. Each and every one of you has survived!
We’re allowing ourselves as a culture to be paralyzed with fear. As if you can’t step out your front door without getting bitten.
Well, here I am, not getting bitten. Even though I’m standing out here with no cover…and an open cut on my hand.
