This is a great idea and pretty well written, though there are some grammars errors. Keep writing. You're good at it :)

Say what you need to say--John Mayer

This is absolutely wonderful!! I would agree that the symbolism at the end could use a little more development. You're characterization is so real, it really let me connect with Miller. You also had me hooked from the very beginning; I just had to finish reading to figure out what the heck was going on. All and all, it really was one of the best stories I've read on here.

"It wouldn't be so bad, doomsday. Death is something we have to face alone. But if we were all to burn together, than in a way, we'd be cheating death"(Jason Bircea).

hello fellow writer. I would like to commend you on your truly riveting piece of work. Every so often you find a gem on this otherwise trash infested website; and this piece sir, is a gem. Miller I find to be the highlight of your work. The way you effortlessly characterize him and make him come to life is fun to watch. The story itself is well executed and very original. My one issus would be that the ending was a little forced. You should take the time to truly express the symbolisim in the lighthouse workers burning the card and then saying that they are a beacon of light. Good work man!
