I don’t know if you remember
But when I was young,
I would sit in class looking out the window wishing the world would end.
On days when I forgot to finish homework I prayed fire alarms would ring and it would all disappear.
This idea interfered with my focus for years:
From middle school to high school and through university
I begged the gods for “dooms day”
It never came.
I sat there…
Studying, learning, training, reading, learning more, studying more, & training, more, & more, & more,
Until early in the year 2020 international governments, over a series of 3 weeks, shut down our economic systems and for all intents and purposes placed the people of earth under global martial law.
As I watched unemployment applications triple in submission and establishments closed their doors for who knew how long, I asked myself if this was the moment I had prayed for so many years prior.
I can not tell you what will come of the people of earth b
Nor can not predict our future
But I can tell you without a doubt that March 2020 marks the beginning of a new world as we know it.
What part does my generation play in this new world order?
