I wasn't sure quite where to put this, so here goes.
When I was little, I used to have all kinds of dreams. Everything from nightmares to the happy dreams with pizza and friends. I was very, very alive
and aware in my dreams, and wouldn't quickly forget them after I woke up. For a few years, I stopped having dreams. I mean, I'm sure I still had
them, but I couldn't remember any the next day or when I woke up.
Starting about a week and a half ago I started having dreams of a scary, scary, nuclear-war stricken world. I keep having this image of seeing the
Earth from outer space. A world lit up in destruction. Then I see individual cities vaporizing. I even hear faint news reports basically finding a
way to report the end of the world. And in my initial dream, the news report even said that it had started with the current war we are fighting, and
it had evolved to involve more and more countries. Finally, something having to do with Italy either suffering nuclear attacks or attacking with
nukes triggered a mass nuclear war. First throughout the Middle East, and then a quick evolution into chaos throughout the entire earth as Russia,
China, and the United States all launched their nuclear arsenal. I know this may sound really weird and far-fetched, or whatever you want to call it,
but these are very clear dreams I'm having.
The reason I've been thinking about this lately is because I don't just have the dreams and remember them when I wake up. They reverberate
throughout the day. I'll be doing something completely unrelated to this, and not thinking about nuclear war at all, and an image of a nuclear-war
stricken world will once again flash in my brain. I kind of stop what I'm doing and just think about it for a little while.
I live close to Houston, TX. The first day after having the dream, I was scared to even look towards Houston, because I was scared that a nuclear
weapon would detonate, and at the least, I would go blind instantly. The following night I had another dream about nuclear war, but this time about
trying to escape the nuclear bombs barraging the country.
Since these dreams, or images, have started, I've thought constantly about finding some type of home far away from major nuclear targets just IN CASE
of a nuclear attack. But I couldn't carry out any of these plans until I was much older and could support myself (as right now I'm still in high
school). If a nuclear war was to start throughout the world, I'm pretty sure I'd be one of the first to be affected. I read a recent list of the
top targets for nuclear weapons in the United States, and Houston was #2 after New York City.
Anyways, I know this may not mean anything to most of you. But I just thought I would share these dreams/foresights. I'm not trying to say that I
think this is going to happen very soon, but lately I've been having constant feelings that it will, and it is beginning to scare me. I may just be
some stupid high school kid, but to me it just appears as if the world seems to be going downhill so fast. But, at the same time, there is still good
that's fighting to keep it alive.
