Faith in the Time of Fracking and GMO

Problem

1)

Earthquakes and tumors, cold-fired fast-profit death,

created by illustrious Homo sapiens.

Will the future descendants find clues buried under mounds of radioactive earth

and make a movie about how we destroyed ourselves

with a weapons cache of ignorance?

 

Resolution

2)

In a global science class for advanced students

a girl from Eastern Europe, a boy from Asia,

and a set of twins from America,

solved the energy crisis by turning plants into oil,

and curing diseases,

replacing destruction with healthy answers.

Journal prompt: 

1)  write about what frustrates you.

2) after writing a frustration piece, write a few lines with a  resolution. How does this make you feel?

Discussion: most journal experts  agree that writing out problems and frustrations helps us to identify issues. Writing a resolution or an answer, even if it seems like a fairy tale or overly optimistic, is helpful. In essence, you are doing an inexpensive form of self therapy and helping to change a mood.

By writing and journaling, you can change your own view. By connecting on social media you access others who share your views. Too simple? Not really.

What if the power of suggestion really works?

Remember when they thought the world was flat?

Remember when we thought space travel was impossible?

Remember when we had no medicines for diseases?

  1. Excellent fulfillment of the assignment. I love the four student’s invention! The beauty of your poetry rooted in your ideas strengthens my belief that the artists of the world are the most powerful force for changing human society.

  2. Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to comment. I really appreciate it! Young people are our future. There has to be change in the way we use resources. Also, this journal exercise that I developed actually works. It is a spin off from “clustering.” Will write about that soon. Here’s to a better future!
