I read a novel a while ago about a man’s attempt to change the past. In this case, he is trying to prevent the assassination of JFK.
I know time travel isn’t possible, but it is just a novel. Although sometimes wonder if we are on the bank while the river of time flows by or if we are in the river that takes us past the banks of time? Thoughts like that are what make me Denn.
But the novel got me thinking…. which isn’t a bad thing. What would I change in the past if I had the chance? Have you ever wondered how you would change the past if you had the opportunity?
The protagonist in the novel is working under the assumption that the US would be a better place if Kennedy had lived, and maybe it would have been. Or perhaps it would have been worse, but we will never know. And we can never know for sure what would have happened if our past had been different.
I know I harp on it all the time, but here it is again: we have no control over yesterday, but we have control over tomorrow by the choices we make today.
Have a great week, and remember: To see what is really possible, you will have to attempt the impossible.
