Where Will Your Infection Start?
Where will your infection start?
I bet, were you to interview a zombie (that being, could you ever contain a zombie long enough and should their mental faculties be withstanding enough to form answers to questions) about when they were turned, every single one could tell you the exact time and place they were bitten.
And every one of them has been bitten differently.
Like delicate snowflakes, the teeth marks and contusions on the bodies of the shambling undead are each special and unique.
If you became a zombie, where would your bite most likely happen?
You should be thinking about it.
There is a part of you, right now, that is most exposed, most likely to be the easiest target for an infection.
Maybe it is your hands. Maybe you use them simply to keep yourself occupied by insignificant things. Those hours spent playing first-person shooters or chatting it up on Facebook are the simplest pathway for the virus of complacency to enter your body. If that is the case, how can you shield your hands? What could you be doing that is of more value to your heart and mind, protecting them better?
Maybe it is your legs. Hours spent in that cubicle, then hours spent on that couch, then hours spent on that bed. Repeat the next day. It becomes easy for a zombie to take hold of those things when they’re not in use. Exercise, get some fresh air, fight off the virus of laziness.
Maybe it is your eyes. Maybe you spend a little too much time engaged in things that are keeping you from the true and moral path of a survivor. Sure those things seem fulfilling, but you are giving the zombies the most direct route to your brain for their virus.
What part of your body is keeping you from becoming a more powerful survivor?
“If your right eye causes you to sin, tear it out and throw it away. For it is better that you lose one of your members than that your whole body be thrown into hell. And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away. For it is better that you lose one of your members than that your whole body go into hell.” – Matthew 5:29-30
