If you all I have noticed I have missed a few days on my 30 day writing challenge, that has been to personal things at home. I have been to stressed too write the last few days. With that said the topic for the 6th day is:
You meet someone who has woken up after a 30-year coma. Describe to them what the world is like today: how is it different than 30 years ago, and what must they come to learn about how things work today?
I am going to change the years to 10 years for the fact that I am only 25 and I cannot remember life from 20 years ago. With that said if I was going to talk to someone who woke up from a ten year coma I would start with the fact that technology has taken over. It is not just CD players, the rich with cell phones, and home computers, but almost every household owns a cell phone, computer, and the internet is now a part of life. CD’s are the past and MP3’s are the now.
I would also point out we have a black president, but race is still a hot topic. Women still do not have equal pay, gays can’t get married in every state, universal health care is still an issues, childcare is not regulated so all children get an equal start, and women are still pushed away from going into math, medicine, law, and engineering.
The world however, has a pope who is more progressive than any other, people are more understanding of other cultures, to world is closer together because of the internet, the earth is becoming that of a priority in government, and that we have received the first pictures of Pluto.
In writing this I could see that it is impossible to give a person back the ten years of their life. That when the moments are gone, if you were not there you kind of missed out. That the next years should not be spent trying to get back the time lost but make the next years memorable.
