At the advice of many of the talented minds within the Den I decided to post my ... rant/story/blurb ... in the writing section after making a few minor little tweaks here and there. <(^^)v

Kimiko, that is my name or at least what I go by and this is my story. I wish I could start it off like all the other stories that were ever written about such situations, about our post apocalyptic world. I wish I could say we know what happened. That it was our greed for power that destroyed us or that we destroyed the world with our bombs. I cannot though.
I remember that day, the dawning as it has become known as. I woke in my home that morning but in a different manner than my normal routine. A sound woke me, distant and soft yet the pitch pierced my mind jerking my from my sleep. I am not sure if it was the sound but I found I could hardly breath, not from the lack of air or from any physical reason but from something deep inside of me as if it was a pain, a sorrow within my very soul and spirit. I consider myself a rather strong person. I hardly ever feel the need to cry, but as I crawled on my hands and knees out of my bed I could not help but to break down into a full bawling cry.
And that is how the world as we know it ended. It was estimated that around 93 percent of the human population died in that instance. There was no reason physically for them to die, they just dropped dead. Besides the loss of human life, everything electrical just stopped working. Again there was no reason that our little human inventions should not work, they just refused to do so. I met a man once, some sort of repairman or mechanic or something, I don't really remember now, but he was driven almost to the point of insanity because of this. He would rant on and on about how they should work, they being a radio and some mechanical child's toy that he had been working on.
This is the world we were left in. The human race had almost been erased with just a distant sound and we had no knowledge of what had happened or what was still to happen. This was our end and our beginning.
