“Anywhere mankind has lived, you are bound to find skulls buried beneath the soil. Each and every one represents a life lived and a life lost. They represent stories of great joy and of great pain. They represent tragedy and loss. They represent lives worth living for. Inside each and every dome, once sat a thousand stories waiting to be told–a thousand stories that now sit hollow in the cavernous remnants of their fortress. Skulls are like libraries once stocked with books that now sit vacant, devoid of their contents.”
– Andy Everson
