‘The Cure for the Common Cry’ By Jerico Olivari

In the near future, a young adult reflects on the events following the scientific proof of no afterlife, which led to the mass suicide of religious fanatics across the world. This insightful look at the power of groupthink showcases the flaws—and triumphs—of the human condition, creating a future carved out of patterns and natural progression of the human race.
