"The Letter" as written by and John Barry....
I write this letter in a state of immense depression and immeasurable grief. It's now been four years since it all began. Only now do I realize the implications of the past actions everyone called a political and economic solution for worldwide problems. A scheme to address war, famine, overpopulation, and instable fluctuation of the world’s monetary markets. Now, they’re all a spiritual ladder. “The Great Master” they called it, appeared on the political scene from out of nowhere, well-versed in the problems of humanity with a plan of peace to save the day. All nations lay at his feet. After just a few short years, they gladly accepted his offer. World leaders hailed him as the greatest leader. His plans were visionary. An eternal solution of mankind. One world united in peace and harmony, under one strong, steady hand. But something was wrong. Terribly wrong.

In those few years, modern civilization changed drastically under this charismatic leader, as he evolved more and more toward god of the people. His name became a new religion, for which the entire world rested. Nothing was allowed to exist outside his grace. A cashless society was to put an end to all crime, if all buying and selling was controlled by a code implanted into one’s hand or forehead. It was then the weight of truth came crashing down on me. This was the hour of the Antichrist.

I knew about the Book of Revelation, the End Times, but it made so little sense. Something my children’s children would deal with. I pushed it into the distant future, until I woke up in the middle of the apocalypse. Suddenly, my mission is clear, and the truth of the Bible burns within me. But is it too late? I'm an enemy of the state of world peace. I'm running out of places to hide. My days are numbered. But then again, so are his. I write this letter and I pray to Jesus that, as I close my eyes, this world should pass from me, and I shall open it upon the everlasting sunshine of the New Eden in His presence, nevermore to cry.

I am the final martyr. This is the last letter from Earth. I pray He will find me faithful.
