Elaborating On the Future

I used to be in two places at the same time. I was always in the present with staff and kids, but when the time presented itself, I investigated the possibilities of visiting Europe as a place to hike and bike with campers and their parents. Why was I considering parents? Because many of them saw the benefits of camp. So, we would talk about what they envied and their own needs as adults. It was an invitation for me to look into a potential activity that was not common at the time. Whether the trips would remain combined or separate—one for children and one for adults— was also considered. Education and adventure were the clear benefits.

The point is that future focus was not an uncommon occurrence for me when time allowed. And now, I have the time to consider the future of our world. From my perspective, the world is having severe environmental difficulties, forcing changes that must be dealt with—air quality, drinking water, and growing the world’s food, are but a few.

All of this is serious enough, but what of the capabilities numerous nations have to destroy it all? At this time, I’m being forced to look into the future because how things are going NOW does not bode well. We must undertake different and better ways to govern and live as the one world we are before there is no time left to ponder any future!

In my opinion, nations that think they can act, live, and prosper independently live in a pipe dream. We need each other. We need to be able to trade and exchange what is full within our basket for what is full in the other’s basket. We need to see our world as a gift none of us can do without, and we all need to share in its care. Much more to come.

I live here with you—We need what we each can do—This is good for all.

  1. True wisdom Sy. If only we could eliminate a few bad apples, we could Spread the welth
