It may seem inappropriate as far as analogies go, but I watched Star Trek plenty growing up, and it is akin to recognizing in some ways that we are getting to a point where a global "government" and worldwide guidance may have a place. I have no idea what this would look like from a fairness to all perspective, etc, but just in a sense of trying to coordinate a world response to a global issue/threat, like a pandemic. Just where my mind goes at times when thinking back to these global impact events.
Easier said than done, and there is no simple solution, but from my life, the events of September 11th were the first instance I recall of thinking - this isn't just a country at war type issue, but that it was something bigger than country versus country.
No matter your views on what happened after 9/11, it's important to remember those who lost their lives that day, and how the world was changed because, as a people, if we forget the past, we are doomed to repeat it.
Before I go on any further, let's just take a look at the cards for today's pack and call it a day with that.
8 Packs, 80 Cards, 313 Points.

I had my students take a virtual tour of the 9/11 Memorial and Museum, but beforehand we had some open discussion and one of my students pointed out that they weren't born until 7 years later. I instantly felt old... because I had just told them the story of when I hear the news and how it seemed like yesterday.ReplyDelete
This is so true - it feels like yesterday and I forget that it's something that our co-op students coming into our work either weren't born for, or were babies at the time.Delete
I don't think that we'll ever see a one-world government, there are way too many people, and WAY too many ideologies, many of which are far too radical to be governed by such an entity.ReplyDelete
I am sure I'll never see it - a couple hundred years from now? Maybe, but agreed, unfortunately I think it would take something so drastic as to be able to overcome those ideologies - or at least minimize those in such minority as to have them on the fringe (which isn't ideal, but that happens in countries even today.Delete
