A Personal Opinion on Important Social Issues and the Future

I’m 18. On a recent night, while I was busy thinking about important social issues, what I’m going to do this weekend and with who, I heard my parents talking in the other room. My dad was upset, but not about the usual problems. He wasn’t talking about how I was going to move out, or go to college or where the money would be. Instead he was upset about how the world is going to be after his generation is done with it and mine takes over.

He sounded like this: “With all the recent terrorist attacks, crisis’s in the East, and modern day politics, all I can do is worry about the future. There will be pandemics, an energy crisis and maybe even a war coming soon.” I was in the living room watching T.V, listening in on their conversation, starting to think about whether the future my father was describing were going to become a reality, I found myself looking at some old family photos.

There was a picture of my grandfather in his Navy uniform and other photos of my family from way back. After seeing those photos and hearing what my father was saying, I felt a lot better. I believe tomorrow will be better than today, the world will continue to be better than it was before, there will be rough patches but I believe it will be a better place. Those pictures helped me understand why. I thought about some tragic events that happened in my grandparents life time: Hitler’s Reign, Cold war, Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

But they say really great things too, the end of all these wars wars, the eradication of many disease, the moon landing.

My generation will see great things too along all the tragic events my dad is predicting. I will see AIDS is cured and cancer is defeated, when the Middle East will find peace, our space technology advancing even further allowing us to discover what is really out there, all of the medical discoveries that will even happen in the next 10 years. Some of these events will be comparable to when my grandfather witnessed the moon landing, or my dad when the internet first came out. I’ve always remembered even when I was a lot younger when I was having a rough time my dad would always comfort me and promise me that “after every bad day is a good day.” I once asked my father, “How do you know that?” He said, “I just do.” | believed him. My father taught me what my grandfather taught him and what my greatgrandfather taught him. As I listened to my Dad talking that night, he sounded like he completely forgot about what he’s always told me, at that moment I went up and reminded up, tomorrow will be a better day.
