Apocalypse now

This prompt is about exploring what is troubling you. You don’t have to be a Walking Dead fan to know that zombies are really in right now. However, if you start to dig into the topic you will discover just why we see so many of the monstrous shambling hordes. Zombies are a stand in for many of our deepest fears. For this writing prompt, spend some time exploring this idea. Specifically consider how your life resembles a zombie apocalypse. You should consider both superficial ideas (such as fighting your way against the crowd when classes change at your high school) and more thoughtful notions such as when you see our leaders mindlessly responding to loud noises while destroying everything in their path. What do you think zombies represent?
