Stories for the grandchildren

Editor's note: it was a hill, but the story is otherwise true.

Mental Health
At first we thought that maybe we could beat the sun. We were pretty sure that reinforced concrete bunkers, three feet thick and windowless, would let us get some sleep. Somehow it didn't work. The scientists said that our bodies knew the light was there, even when our eyes couldn't see it.
Now we have two choices, they say. We can fight or run away, and as for me, I hope we fight. Blow it up. End its tyranny on sleep and pale people.

  1. Is this a reference to Avatar? It reminds me of the main character's narrative intro.
