This year is barely three months old, yet the trends and news headlines are something that will be hard to forget. If I were to select items for a time capsule for future generations to open, it would have to include the following:
- A hybrid car
- A Kindle/Nook
- A smartphone
- DVDs or Blue Rays of 2015 Oscar winners, including “Birdman” and “American Sniper”
- A DVR
- Every People magazine since January 1st. It includes fashion, celebrity gossip, and pop culture.
- A tablet with Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Netflix apps
- Newspapers from the past 96 days. Headlines would include the Harrison Ford plane crash yesterday and the American Sniper trial verdict.
Did I miss anything?
My great-great grandma came to Southern California from Kansas at the age of seven. She got to witness so much (she passed away the year I was born, 1983) in her long lifetime. She always said she didn’t think there was a more interesting time to be alive: from the covered wagon-era to a man walking on the moon!
At the rate things are changing now, imagine what we’ll see!
