If I Live To Be One-Hundred

I was looking to quote some statistics but I couldn’t find any. If none are readily to hand, I shall paraphrase them:

Quite a lot of us will see the big century of years.

If I get to reach it I would definitely hope that the past century does not get to do a replay of itself.

  • “The war to end all wars”: World War I (1914–1918)
  • The Russian Revolution and Communism.
  • Economic depression.
  • The rise of dictatorship.
  • The war in Europe.
  • The war in the Pacific.
  • The Holocaust.
  • The Nuclear Age begins.
  • Cold War begins.
  • Korean War
  • Vietnam War
  • Space Age
  • Red Brigade, Baeder Meinhoff,
  • Cambodia
  • Afghanistan
  • Fall of the Wall (welcome)
  • Yugoslavia
  • Rise of the Digital Age
  • World-Wide Economic Crash
  • Rise of Nationalism
  • Trump!

  1. That list causes me to shiver. I don’t think I will live to be 100 but wonder what is going to happen in our world after I am gone. I love that quote by the way. I feel the same lol

  2. Us humans are fantastic at making a gigantic mess and wrecking stuff.
    That’s a scary list. I’m the eternal optimist. I still hope we’ll get a grip and start fixing things. Ugh…Trump! I did NOT vote for him. Makes me embarrassed to be American.
