THERE IS HOPE

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Time Capsule.”

When I was in high school we buried a time capsule near a large oak tree.  We put a newspaper, St. Christopher’s medal, 45 record, pictures of some girls in their uniforms, etc.  It was a fun project that we all participated in.  I think that I would do it much different today.  For one thing I am much more mature, have learned some hard life lessons and there are things that I am passionate about.  Another reason is that our world is not the same one that I lived in in the ’60’s.  Many people would put in an iPhone, iPad, hand-held game, some fashion items and letters explaining what daily life is like at this time.

My time capsule would be a sturdy safe to be buried underneath my husband’s memorial garden, in the front yard of our house, to be opened in 100 years.  I would put in medical journals to show the advances we have made and some of the archaic thinking that remains with us even now in 2015.  Those opening the capsule would find some modern tools, an ownership booklet for a Tesla car, a picture of an ATM with a credit card, and there would have to be a newspaper from today.

This memory capsule would contain articles about rare diseases that are not being researched and go without treatment, chronic illnesses that continue at this time without a cure, orphan drugs that large pharmaceuticals won’t spend money on for lack of profit, the deterioration of our medical system instead of its edification and growth, and how our children are still the ones that suffer most for our economic status with poverty and homelessness growing world-wide, the decline of our educational system that was once the best in the world, and the devaluation of our sense of family.

It would certainly be my wish that when my safe is opened in 100 years, that they will have found answers to all the aforementioned concerns.  That there are new cures for illnesses, an economy that allows everyone to have a home and eat regular meals, an educational style that will take each child to his highest potential.  There isn’t one thing on my list that is impossible.  Hopefully, in a century they will have a stronger vision and belief in their world.
