We were all going to...DIE!!!
My six year old son loves to read the news. So, there I was, reading the comic-strip page, and there he was reading the important stuff. He goes on to tell me (this was earlier this week) that an unknown asteroid was heading toward Earth. Huh???
It seems as if a 33 foot wide asteroid came very close to Earth. DEEP IMPACT? More like the pop of a zit. For awhile it was reported that no one knew what it was..it was infact; a UFO!!!
Now, on the other side of the table, was my 15, soon to be 25, daughter. She was listening to Lady Gaga, with her headsets on. Oh, I know it was Lady Gaga because I could still hear her singing!!!
My daughter decides to add her 2 cents worth; "What if the asteroid hits our house when we're sleeping..what if we all die?"
Well, it got me to thinking; what if a real asteroid hit our world. One that was big enough to destroy all life. What if the world had a year to prepare for its eventual distruction? As the date drew closer, would the world dissolve into utter chaos??? Would so called walls of civilization come crumbling down? Did the Chargers finally wins a superbowl before the end of the world?
I have often wondered how our society would react to such news, and events. I am sure the images of 9/11, and the panic that gripped New York, is still a memory in most of our minds. I was in the military in those days, stationed right here in San Diego. I remember going home after that long day and watching all the news shows and the recorded images. That was an act of terrorism that no one in New York knew was coming; and the look of panic in their eyes was as true as it could be.
But if the world knew the day it would all end, would we continue our normal lifes, getting up going to work ect, if we knew it was all going to end a year, then six months, then a month, then a week later? What if we all knew we when we were all going to die?
Come on Chargers!!! Get it done!!! NOW!!!
