Summary: Johnny doesn't think he's a prophet.
Sometimes Johnny wonders if he's supposed to serve a purpose. Gene, of course, believes there are reasons for the visions: Johnny Smith, modern day prophet. The idea terrifies him. "Prophet" makes him think of historical and religious figures, and the followers expecting perfect guidance and sacrifice.
Johnny was a teacher once, but he never taught the traditional way, always grouping his class together and engaging in discussions and active learning. He never lectured and rarely wrote on the board. He doesn't want the spotlight or the pedestal. I'm just a man, he thinks. I don't want to be your martyr.
