A Town Forgotten
Chris Arnade

Cairo is indeed a sad story, but to assign some special, higher meaning to it is to miss how humans live.
Cairo had a function at one time. Due to shifting needs, changes in transportation, and newer modes of work and production, it no longer does, not enough to sustain a viable community.
There’s nothing exceptional or negative about this process. It’s been going on since humans banded together and began settling in a single place.
When a location no longer works, they move on.
Someday every place humans have settled will be obsolete, unsustainable, and abandoned.
