As he looks out at the panicked streets of St. Louis, he grapples with feelings of helplessness and the looming possibility of facing nuclear destruction alone and afraid.

With the clock ticking down, Walter must confront his past mistakes and find a glimmer of hope amidst the impending doom.

Will he be able to reconcile with his loved ones or will he be doomed to face the end alone?

    This story is thought-provoking and left to linger on the mind. The mark of a good book. It grabs you full throttle and twists your emotions as well. Walter Regin handles the news of the US being thrown in a nuclear war. A short story it maybe, but its impact is big.
