Kids Today

We paid a visit to Room 2215 at Pleasant Ridge Montessori School to see what the next generation thinks the future holds for Cincinnati. As you can see here, they had a lot on their minds. (Hint: There will be bacon.)

“I think that the earth will look different because there’s not a lot of pollution. Maybe there’s a force field that cleans the pollution, and at night you’ll be able to see the Little Dipper!” —Davy Smith, 8

“People will understand the same languages, because if aliens come to earth they will learn our language, and if we go to their planet we will learn their language. We’ll keep doing that all over the world, so if someone is from a different country, we’ll still know how to talk to them.” —Derion Prophett, 7

“I have heard of some problems that not just scientists can solve, but regular people. Like rainforest animal habitats are being torn down. We can save that, and stop it. Lots of people can. I hope in the future it will keep stopping more.” —Harry Moeller, 7

“Puppies! I want them to be small, never grow into giant dogs, and I want them to be so soft that I can lay on them as pillows. Maybe science could keep the puppies soft. They would stay alive forever and be small, but kind of medium, and soft all the time.” —Marleigh Ray, 7

“Maybe the rain would be bacon instead. Then the rain would go into the oceans and then the oceans would be covered in bacon. Even the middle of the earth is bacon. Because I like bacon a lot. I want everything to be bacon.” —Milo Hickerson, 6

“There will be more nature houses so we wouldn’t be wasting a lot of energy so the dump pile won’t get too big. They can be made out of mud and covered with leaves and with sticks to hold it up. We’ve been polluting the world for a while and we need to fix it. You don’t want to die and leave the whole world a mess for someone else.” —Rachel Herzig, 7
