Got a good night's sleep after not getting much the night before. It's hard to snooze hiding in a truck surrounded by zombies. #zompocalypse

Jason woke me up a little while ago. He says we have to report what we found at the library to Pete. I suppose he's right. #zombie #zombies

Well, that felt strange. Pete thanked us for the information, said he'd send someone back to the library, and dismissed us quickly. #zombies

05:04 AM #
I suppose it's what I should have expected, having recently told Pete I was retiring from important missions. Jason was still impressed.

Jason is also a bit disappointed. He was hoping to squeeze another day of zombie hunting out of the deal, figuring we'd return to MCPL today

I've been thinking about what we found in the Marathon County Public Library in downtown Wausau. Namely, the evidence of survivors there.

07:54 AM #
Eleven people--struggling to survive, surrounded by zombies, and slowly starving--took the time to make sure knowledge was preserved.

07:57 AM #
They weren't just doing it for themselves. They packaged those books to keep them safe and make them easy for others to find in the future.

07:59 AM #
Even the choices they made about which books to save were for long-term recovery, despite the dire state of their own short-term prospects.

08:02 AM #
The sense of duty showed by those people, who we'll never know, is making me feel a little ashamed of myself right now. How can I just quit?

I just don't know if I can handle being responsible for more lives being lost.
