Survivor alive as specimen

On field trips, their children visit the New Permanent Demonstration of the Untenable Existence of Destroyed Peoples at the State Museum for the Justification of Military Action. The teachers use their pointers and speak sternly. The children yawn, but at night and for weeks to come, they wonder about the man who lives alone on this 3.2-mile tract. The brave ones vow to return at night.
