15 Destruction Aftermath, Book 1

Derived from the stories of FrankSpeaks in SOL
A story loosely based upon the "Frank's Post Apoc" Universe from SOL. Lots of radio, a family group and how they handle the depopulation (to a great extent) of the world in west Georgia, USA. This was originally posted for me by Frank Speaks but I feel confident enough to go forward here (not comfortable with some of SOL). Please enjoy. RG I have gone over the story and am reposting it to correct errors and bring some issues into line with the rest of the stories. :-)

This story is fiction, but not the facts. Information from Sumerian translations are true. Hindu texts of battles in space...true. Einstein's brain autopsy proved that he used more of his brain than other humans. How is that possible? How do men get flashes of genius, and why doesn't everyone function at that level of ability all the time? Why did the Dark Ages happen, and why does mankind seem to be sliding that direction again?
