"Even if it's just us against the universe, I want to protect everything! I want to be a hero!"
Who is the Witness? Are they the Witnesses? I don't know. Can a Witness intervene in an oncoming disaster? Can a Witness help and guide those to the bright future they desire? Does a Witness know what is required to stop what is believed to be the End Times? Does anyone know, or all they all hoping and guessing, shooting into the dark and hoping for a miracle?
I don't know.
