The cities have been bombed to dust, the network grids are destroyed, and the roads are little more but asphalt slag.

But they survived.

Radiation sickness and a nuclear winter killed off about half of them, but others had come, weary and ready to renounce the foolishness of the world in favor of nonviolence.

Hard work and isolation had kept them out of the way while the world burned, destroying itself with bigger and bigger displays of swagger and attempts at dominance.

He is an old man, but he still feels young. The world belongs to them, and the refugees that come to their door are humbled, ready to accept life without war because of the atrocities they saw with their own eyes.

In the end, those who did not pick up the stone survived. The meek have indeed inherited the Earth.

And they will build it anew - a world where all knowledge of violence is locked away, where all human needs can be ritually addressed. This new world will know no sin greater than a man raising his hand in anger.

And Joseph feels as if he as atoned at last.
