And if we are known for anything perhaps it is only for the ruining we do. All this red and look who they named us after. And the aftermath of it all? Silence. A world in mourning. Forgiveness. And maybe in the next life we get to do it right. Start again. Send people out to search for water. Turn this red into blue. A quiet rebuild. We will do it gentle. Clean up the glass. Try to sew the sky back together. And perhaps they will give us a different name. If we are known for anything let it be for the love we tried.
