Our Changing World Essay

723 words - 3 pages

Besides the people who think they’re smart agreeing that evolution is a myth, everyone else in the world knows that everything constantly changes or evolves. Technology and even everyday ways of life are constantly being altered to become more efficient or convenient for evolving lifestyles. This isn't always the ideal way of doing things, but it is how our world works. Our world may seem as if it’s driving itself into chaos, or it may appear as blank canvas to others. To me, I see our changing world as both because both good and bad things are happening in it. Convenient or weird, things in the world are always going to change, and I want to point out some of those things in this essay.
In today’s world, there are innovative technologies popping up all over the place. These new inventions assist everything from people with handicaps to decreasing the world’s CO2 emissions. People are clever, and they are capable of inventing almost ...view middle of the document...

As I mentioned though, the world is not entirely good. There are some negative things that definitely need attention. For starters, there are WAY too many people in the world. Overpopulation is a problem because with more people means more carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, more starvation, more death, and more discomfort. The world is only designed for so many people, and people have exceeded that limit. The world also doesn’t shine like a gem because its inhabitants are fat. 65% of the world is overweight and that’s nothing to be proud of. People can’t seem to respect themselves enough to be healthy, and 65% is over half of the world population; that’s sad. People also still see some people as less than them. Even after we’ve dealt with segregation, some people still think they’re better than others and that’s not right. How can the world be a good place to live in if people are going to be belittled until they “fit in?” Everyone is their own person, so why would they have to be part of a group? I just don’t see that as something to be proud of, and I hope that one day it would all stop.
Let’s make a plan for the future. If the world is not 100% seen as good or bad, let’s make a plan for it to be 100% good. For the world to be a perfect place, there would have to be no destruction, no anger, no jealousy, homes for all, food for all, equality, friendship, and love. It may sound sappy, but no one’s happy when people are sad so if we could, eliminating all those things would be ideal. Everyone needs a home, food, and people that care about them because it makes them feel good. Imagine if everyone had that. Just the thought of it makes you feel good because you know that there are other people just as happy as you are.
Let’s jump back to reality though. The world can never be perfect, and everyone’s accepted that. We can, as a society though, try to change things amongst ourselves to make this world what we want to see it as, and that’ll be the first step into making this world perfect. If we want to see people happy, we can make it happen. If we want to become healthy, we can make it happen. If we want the world to change for the better, then by all means, we as a people can make it happen.
