You know how they say curiosity killed the cat, well if I were a cat I would be dead in spite of having 9 lives. The TOP 3: Ideas I have been curious about. These are all issues I would like to write an article about, but they are complex I wouldn’t know where to begin.
1.) If a snapshot in time could be taken, I wonder if my generation (Generation Y/Millennials) would be considered as “A generation in conflict.” Many say our generation can change the world, because we are more open-minded and tolerant than previous generations. But, with a culmination of events and conflicts such as terrorism, war, violent revolutions, the recession, the national debt, social security, unemployment, natural disasters occurring over the entire nation, etc. How will this generation respond? Will they be equipt to lead when the baby boomers are dead and gone generation. Yes, previous generations have had to cope with some of the same issues, but not all at the same time, which is making it harder for me to believe that generation Y is ready to lead.
2.) I wonder how many U.S. citizens that lived through the Great Depression and the Dust Bowl are living today? Why? I think it would interesting to sit down with someone from that era and have a conversation in order to figure out what they would say about the Great Recession. I often wonder what advice would they give to my generation. This idea has been done before by The New York Times, I just wonder what it would be like to hear from someone in Oklahoma.
3.) What would happen to the world if the United States where to fall? Honestly, I don’t want to think about this, but when it comes to the point where the government are close to shutting down government, because they can’t agree on what’s best for the American people, we have to come to the realization that the U.S. failing is a real possibility.
