Friday December 31, 2134
I look at the gray envelope with the dark red ink in my hand. It was delivered one week ago to everyone over the age of sixteen. I turn it over and over in my hand looking at the front and at the back for any marking that I might have missed, as I have done, every day since I received it.
On the front of the envelope is printed simply:
100 Year Celebration of World Unification
Do not open until January 1, 2135
