The musical group REM had a hit many years ago that said “It’s the end of the world as we know it (and I feel fine).” I suppose that there are people who are convinced that there will be some catastrophic events happening on the 21st of May. I suppose the Myans chose to end their calendar with the winter solstice. There probably won’t be any imminent rapture like events happening anytime soon, but who knows? There could be. We live our life as if there are not guarantees.
