Ten Years Later

Can you believe it? It will soon be 2010! That means we are 10 years into the 2000's! Everyone remember the bruh-ha-ha that was made of us going from 1999 (pre-iPod, iPhone, GPS, and FaceBook) to 2000? Some thought the world would end! The world's computers wouldn't be able to handle the change! Wallstreet would collapse! Nuclear weapons all over the world would go haywire! What would happen?

ABSOLUTELY NOTHING! I believe I was at a friend's New Years Eve party that night. We jokingly, but with some seriousness, waited for midnight to arrive. This year though, it wasn't only to ring in the new year, but to see what actually would happen when the world went from 1999 to 2000! Would the devastation occurs in stages as various parts of the world greeted 2000, or would the destruction of the world happen when the first clock struck 12:00AM and the year 2000 was here!

Wallstreet did almost collapse, but that was several years later and it had nothing to do with the calendar. It had to do with greed and mass disregard for any rules. And it wasn't the year 2000 that brought much grief, but it was 9-11-2001 that brought tears to the U.S.

We've seen alot in the past 10 years! 10 years into the 2000's! I wonder what the year 3000 will bring!
