  • The end is looming closer like a giant cement truck roaring just around the bend.
  • Crazy superstition or not, the end is a sad thing to think about. Especially for those who have just begun, the generation to whom the world is labeled rightfully theirs for years to come.
  • To me, the world ending is just god's way of erasing his jumbled scribble of the universe, blowing the shavings away into the past, and starting all over again.
  • It's a bummer--right before Christmas has a chance to lay it's warmth and peace over the world. The lights, the gifts, the love--will it all go to waste?
  • As soon as I wake up to be greeted by the warm shafts of sunlight that I know as a friend, I swear, I will shout, "Hallelujah!" , and then next in line perhaps some sort of jolly dance. But if I do not wake up...where would I be, I do not know.
  • I'll just say that I believe in reincarnation. In my last life, I'm sure, I was a cat, prowling the streets of Turkey. I take comfort in knowing that when I am gone, that will not be the last of me. My soul for all eternity will always take on new forms, whether algae or elephant. But what will happen if there is no earth for my future body to walk on? Which brings me to the question, what does the end of the world mean anyway; the end of Humanity, or literally the end of the world? It would be nice to know that life still remains on earth after we're gone.
  • If the Mayans were not just fooling around, then it is a sad farewell, Cowbird friends. But if I am to wake up tomorrow alive and well, I will sound the alarm that we have made it. And, as San Cassimally has said, we will greet each other with the biggest smiles in history.
