Today’s prompt states:
A Bird, a Plane, You!
You get to choose one superpower. Pick one of these, and explain your choice:
- the ability to speak and understand any language
- the ability to travel through time
- the ability to make any two people agree with each other
Language has been around for many years, whether it is with humans, animals, insects, or nature. No matter where we turn, there is that global language being spoken all around us. We hear it in the wind, the birds and the ocean.
Therefore, if I could choose a superpower or one of the choices above, I would pick the ability to speak and understand any language.
Why? So there is no confusion or misunderstanding between people or nature. We hurt each other in many ways that we destroy human beings and nature itself. Why is it that although we come from the same flesh and bones of this Earth, do we choose to destroy it and ourselves? Guilty of doing so, I can attest to this murder.
Lucky though to have learned two languages, English and Spanish. However, not so lucky to understand our World. The History that has raveled in this Earth from many years ago and even until now. It would be great to travel through time as well to see up front and in person all the events that have occurred before us. To witness those events that have forever changed our lives and ways of thinking. However, that is impossible now unless there is a genius out there that can invent a time travel capsule. Until then, we will not truly know the exact events other than those written in History books or those stories told by our ancestors.
But having the ability to speak and understand any language, would honestly be my top choice. Learning and speaking the beautiful languages from different countries would be the most exclusive gift of all. Being able to understand Mandarin, French, Arab and all the other languages in the World. This would be a blessing!
P.S. I would love to hear from you. What language(s) do you speak?
