I have been walking along this deserted road clutching my old plush dog. As I have been walking along the air has increasingly grown darker, almost to a dark black. There is only tall grass fields surrounding us on all sides, nothing else. I wonder what would happen if this was it. The final walk I would ever go on. I wonder if this final march would bring an end to violence and hunger. Solving the world's greatest problems. 
My old torn shoes crunched over an old empty candy wrapper. I was surrounded on all sides by other people marching for the same reason. We were the only people for miles but our group of thousands of people from different backgrounds; clerics, storekeepers, librarians, teachers, police officers, software developers, athletes, anyone. Some might question what we are doing marching along this road. We are risking anything if we are out here we could lose our jobs, we could jeopardize our whole life. We all stood solemnly in a large queue.  As we walked we saw the crashed wreaks of old trucks with their goods still clamped to the backs of their trailers. If you had a keen eye you might be able to spot the small animals we use to hunt. Some people might get food poisoning. Some choose to live off of just packets of sunflower seeds.
