Born from a Single Loss
The Reason for the Existence of the Omelas
The Omelas are a race of people who live in a world of peace and live as one, but there is one thing that they will never forget and always regret. The child that lives in the basement of a house, but for the Omelas to live like they do it must live like that. The people live and prosper off of the one child that suffers and starves in a basement. They can never treat the child with kindness, for if they were to, they would never be able to live in prosper. For the Omelas they celebrate strongly and treat others the same way they want to be treated. But they all still like with regret for the child in the basement.
