My Perfect World Essay

917 words - 4 pages

“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.”- Martin Luther King Jr.
And isn’t he right. We all have dreams, whether it’s you or me. If only we could all create our own perfect world, one that would satisfy all of our wants and needs. It may seem impossible, but what if we could? I believe anything is possible. It’s just as possible for me to hate the color pink, collect dictionaries, and own genetically modified flying pigs (when pigs fly) as it is for me to create a perfect world. And supposing it is possible, I will begin with my idea of a perfect world, a world where there would be no surprises and no mistakes.
In my perfect world, there would be no surprises. Most surprises that are deliberately prepared for a person are meant to have satisfying results for both the receiver and the one who prepared for it in the first place, but the good intentions can often be misjudged or just somehow go wrong. In a simple scenario, a family member or friend decides to give a puppy or kitten as a present for the holidays. Everyone is supposed to be happy, but it turns out that someone is allergic, the new pet does not get along well with another pet, or the landlord happens to not allow fuzzy little balls of fur in the apartment building. Either way, there is some excuse that makes the present unsuitable for the family. This holiday gift is then returned to the animal shelter, where it joins many other unwanted pets where they live in great stress and fear until they are adopted, or put to rest due to overcrowding of shelters. This happens to more than half of the pets given as holiday gifts in the United States. For this reason, surprises can be bad. Another reason surprises are unpleasant have to do with the health issue of the person receiving the “bad” or “good” news; German scientists have discovered how an extreme sudden knowledge of a recent event or a traumatic experience can pose its own sort of danger to the person’s health. Shocking news is capable of causing the body to create over-excessive amounts of stress hormones like adrenaline, which can diminish the amount of blood supplied to the heart due to shrinking of main arteries. The lessening of delivered blood can produce a sort of ailment similar to a heart attack. The person experiencing this will also have difficulty in breathing and sharp pains in their chest, causing them to feel weak. Therefore, this is yet another reason why surprises are bad. Apart from abandoned pets and health...
