The end of the world

The end of the world

Yesenia Vizguerra, Reporter

There are some extremists that believe that aliens are real, that they take our souls and live among us. Others, including me, believe that 2017 is going to be the last year in which the human race and everything on Earth will be alive.

 

This year, we have had multiple rallies in which attendees were killed or being brought into violent attacks. Some people came to believe that this is all due to our president and the fact that most people have contributed to this violence due to their political views and towards those who oppose them.

 

Though ISIS has been among us for some time, the attacks have not been public or as violent until 2014, leading up to this year. ISIS has gotten control over parts of the Middle East and has since been taking hostages by force and through attacks. People from all over the world have experienced the threats and wrath of ISIS. People have since come to believe that because of ISIS, the world will not find a common ground and thus die out.

 

Across the U.S, people experienced the 2017 solar eclipse, some people come to say that this was a tell-tale sign that the world is going to end. People who read the Bible, have come to create a coincidence that because of the solar eclipse, Jesus is coming and the world is going to end.

 

There is a passage that reads that ‘the stars will fall from the sky… and he will send his angels and gather from the four winds… and the moon will not give its light” Many have come to believe that this is a reference to a solar eclipse and the hurricane in which we have already experienced this year. In this Bible verse, it also mentions that the son of the Lord is coming soon, maybe sooner than we think.

 

“I don’t think it will happen so soon, maybe in the next hundred years,” says Yasmin Vizguerra (‘20).

 

In recent times, southeast Texas has experienced one of the worst hurricanes that we have seen. While times in Texas seem to be getting better gradually, the weather is still creating more inches of rain that could also raise the water levels.

 

“It could be possible, I mean all these terrible things are happening and the solar eclipse was in the Bible as a sign of the end.” said Mariana Cardoso (‘19).
