Fear of the Future

Fear of the Future

By: Amanda Martz

There has been so much going on in the news lately, conspiracies, sanctions, investigations on our own President.  Honestly I am afraid for my child and the future she will be growing into.  It seems like everytime you turn around there are more findings, information, what have you.  Is anyone else worried about this like I am, or am I just going crazy?

The world I want my daughter to grow in is a peaceful, technologically advanced, full of chances and adventures type of world.  Not a scary, money hungry, war driven, un-trustworthy one.  How are we suppose to feel good about our childrens' futures when ours isn't even looking that great?  Face it Millennials, we aren't doing too hot ourselves, we are too busy stuck in our phones, computers, social media ran lifes right now. And that is just the honest truth, and I'm guilty as well. Seriously though, we don't even know if we will have anything to look forward to when we retire!

I'm not sure what to even believe anymore.  Hearing stories about the World Trade Center being destroyed by the government, and Trump having secret connections with Russia, who knows what is true or false!  This is a frightening time in our history if you honestly sit back and think about it.  What other president had any problems like this? Maybe Bill Clinton had the alot of news other than Trump, but that was a whole other situation.

Like I said, I'm not sure if any other parents out there are worried about the future of this coutry for their kids, but I will not hesitate to save all the money I can and relocate if need be.  I'm sure other countries have problems of their own, but hopefully they can trust whatever governement, leader, president, king/queen, whatever they have!  

Don't even get me on the subject of home schooling, because I have thought about that once or twice as well.  If it wasn't for this common core shit confusing me, I might just do it! I'm sure I can figure it out if I had too....but that's another subject for another time.  

Basically, all I want is for my child, as well as everyone else's, to grow up in a world that is safe and full of possibilities for them.  Hopefully this can happen, and hopefully it will be a time where they won't have to worry about occurrences like we have.  

Let me know if I am crazy or not to be worried about this matter, because my daughter is more important than anything, and I want her to not fear the future, but to embrace it.
