At a research station in Antarctica, five of the world's top scientists have been brought together to solve one of the greatest mysteries in human history.

They're right. And they're next. And the human race might just be headed for extinction.

    When the body of Hunter Gearhardt washes up on the banks of a seasonal river outside of Pomacochas, Peru, with only samples of vegetation, a handful of feathers, two black- and gray-streaked rocks, and a golden headdress of indeterminate origin in his possession, his grieving father launches an expedition to determine how his son died. The party uses these clues to divine Hunter’s route into the jungle, where they find a surviving offshoot of a primitive tribe, long thought to be extinct, and something far more sinister, something that’s been able to avoid discovery for eons for one simple reason: No one leaves the rainforest alive.

    The butchered remains of Jasmine Rivers are discovered in the cellar of an abandoned farmhouse on the desolate eastern plains of Colorado, the fourth mutilated body found in the last two months. The FBI is still searching for the missing parts of the previous three. Hundreds of miles away in Arizona, eleven corpses are exhumed from the Sonoran Desert.

    Arizona shares nearly four hundred miles of international border with Mexico, thirty-six of which are completely unfortified. On one side lies desperation; on the other, opportunity. Tens of thousands of undocumented aliens pass through these thirty-six miles every year, only to find one of the harshest and most inhospitable deserts on the planet waiting for them. Hundreds die walking, casualties of the merciless sun, their bodies never to be identified.

    The courage and the strength of the Parkland students are inspiring. Amid their personal pain, they have articulated a sense of rage, conviction and moral clarity over the lack of action on gun violence. Oprah Winfrey has likened these brave students to the Freedom Riders of the 1960s. Others have commented that such youth activism might change the political landscape and make progress possible at last.

    "The Young Voices We Aren’t Hearing in the Gun-Control Debate" is from the March 21, 2018 Opinion section of The Washington Post. It was written by Michael McBride and narrated by Sam Scholl.
