Fallout Shelter – Old Sneakers
These sneakers have sat unmolested on this shelf for nearly twenty years, since my father first built his fallout shelter. (For background, click here.) Actually, it isn’t fair to call it “his” fallout shelter. A few others still have reserved bunks that they’ll use in the event of global unrest. But there were once many others. Over the years, most have completely divested themselves of the situation, choosing to recede into lives far away. As far as my father is concerned, their lack of communication means they’ve forfeited their right to salvation.
