Prologue

Objects in View Front CoverWe were going along living life. There was nothing extraordinary about that day. We were drinking mochas, commuting on interstates, talking on cell phones, eating in restaurants, chatting on the Internet, making money and spending ourselves into debt. In a million parks across the nation, women tickled their babies’ toes and men tossed the Frisbee for their dogs. We were all tied up in the latest reality show or political drama, downloading our personal playlist from the Internet, and ordering baubles from afar. The President was talking on television that night and a lot of us were gathered around to absorb his latest lies.

And, then, suddenly, it all ended. There was no warning. The life we knew just ended. In the days that followed we learned the details – the number of people dead, the number of cities decimated, the millions of connections that were severed, destabilizing the fragile network of our society. That devastation did not touch us because we were rural, but what followed would transform our lives in unexpected ways.

Front Cover LAWKI no windowThe coming days would redefine who we were. We’d stop being afraid of the paper tigers the elites used to distract us and start concentrating on the very real dangers that had been lurking all around us.

But first, we had to learn that rescue was not coming and that we needed to save ourselves.                                     JT Delaney

    • Right. We’re in deep kimchee if something disrupts our world because almost nobody is prepared and those of us who are will become targets of those who weren’t. I set it in Kansas rather than Alaska because at least there they would have food.
