Keys to The Future by Zoe Olson
Babies are the definition of progress. They mean that the human race will survive at least for another generation; they mean that we will have people to pass down our knowledge to so they can make the world a better place; they mean that teenagers like me don’t have to be broke (for where else would we get money, if not from babysitting?)
I am part of a big family. One out of seven, that’s me. And I’m not saying that everyone should try to have as many kids as they possibly can, but…We wouldn’t want the human race to die out, now would we? It is becoming a trend to have less and less kids, and nobody is really thinking about the consequences except for me! Sure, it’s unlikely that the entire human race will die out, because certain cultures and religions encourage having lots of kids. But if only they are having kids, then eventually they will be the only people on this earth. Plus my family, of course.
Some people are worried about overpopulation. But if we try to solve that problem by stopping having babies, eventually we will all die out.
In the olden days, children were a symbol of prosperity. But now they are seen as obstacles. This is not right! Kids are the key to the future. For, without kids, the human race wouldn’t even have a future. And without a future, we wouldn’t have any progress at all.
