The note is found in Grafton, hanging on the boarded-up door to the church.
To those who remain:
Many of us have lost things we once held dear - our voices, our skin, the taste of food. You've watched your loved ones die. You don't need to suffer alone.
A new community is forming to the East. It's being built by people like you, in the remains of the Capitol City.
Join us as we prepare to leave this place. West Virginia will not be rebuilt, but our lives can still have purpose.
- William Keller
