One day a long time ago.
Millions of Ernie’s were born that day.
They started to experience life and as they did some of them ended, they could not continue, their possibilities exhausted.
They had no future.
Others continued on a little changed as each decision was made at each turn in the road.
Some ended quietly.
Some left screaming.
All left closing the door on possibilities of worlds vastly different than the one we know today.
Some choices were minor and the number of Ernies went on unchanged.
Some choices were devastating and the number of Ernies left in the ranks dwindled.
Some choices required little intelligence or determination to make them.
Others required sacrifice and strength of will that was almost beyond the limit of endurance.
