I just had a long talk with Jason, who was waiting for me when I checked my solar patio-light zombie traps this morning. (No zombies, btw)
08:21 AM #
As Kurt thought, Jason was indeed up on Rib Mountain for Pete's speech and the execution of the captured Reapers. Jason had many questions.
08:24 AM #
He asked if everything Pete said about the Reapers was true. I told him that unfortunately, it was, and that I'd seen it myself. #zombies

Then he asked about the cannibal gangs, which I could only elaborate upon by sharing what I'd heard from others. The boy was scared.
08:30 AM #
...So I told him all about the other survivor groups represented by visitors at the execution. I described how they were all good people.
08:33 AM #
Then he asked me if I thought he was a good person, or if would he be shot because he took things sometimes, like my phone...
08:36 AM #
I told him that people make mistakes, but that they can change and make up for past mistakes. I said giving my phone back was like that.

I've been doing work outside today in hopes Jason would come back. He seemed pretty thoughtful when he left, abruptly and nearly in tears.
