Ideabird 7/5/13

He wasn’t the fastest thinker in the world, always struggling for comebacks while the other kids talked so freely. But he could remember anything; and because he could regurgitate all the facts he learned, he was counted as smart. The more he read and remembered about history the more he was able to draws patterns between the facts, and it led to a lucrative career as an analyst who could make projections. As an older man he taught history, and continued seeing the patterns in world behavior. But he never really had a way to express to these beautiful young people what danger the world was in as all the signs pointed to global war.
