The world is like a living organism. Constantly changing, facing challenges and adapting over time to survive. It is full of beauty and ugliness and everything in between. I hope that we learn from the past and look forward with hope and ambition for the future. I don't think life is "fair" but that doesn't mean it can't be wonderful. Life is a gift to be opened and enjoyed. My background, culture and especially my current lifestyle influence my entire view of life and the world. I am very lucky but also know hardship. Both these things influence my opinions and views as well as my actions and choices. The world is an opportunity. For what? For whatever you want it to be.

I like to look at human society as a species in the sense that I am given quite a bit of hope that whatever problems and challenges we face, our genetic drive to survive will prevail, no matter what.

My vision of the world is that we are constantly progressing.  Sure, we keep making mistakes, but we have always done this and in many ways are mistakes are not as bad as they used to be.  We are more humane and less brutal than in the past so I think things are looking up.

A great question for a 9th grader; a sad question for an old retired professor.  What you are asked to do here is to bring to expression all those vague, foggy, half-formed ideas that you have gathered from your education and from you personal experiences so far.  Is Humanity going somewhere, or just surviving?  Are we on the right track, and what is the right track?  Will we ever get past war as a viable action?  Is anyone monitoring our progress?  Is our reasoning ability getting in the way of our happiness or helping it along.  Are we just self-conscious animals, or do we have a "spirit"?  My vision of the world is that I'm on my way out, and you can have my place.  Good luck with that.
