Day 1 of the WEGO Health Activist Writer's Challenge: Health Time Capsule
It's finally here - WEGO Health Blog's April 2012 Health Activist Month Challenge! So without further adieu, I'll get started.
Health Time Capsule. Pretend you’re making a time capsule of you & your health focus that won’t be opened until 2112. What’s in it? What would people think of it when they found it?
After doing a little research on time capsules (on It's About Time... time capsules, that is, and on Atlanta's Oglethorpe University International Time Capsule Society (ITCS) website) I decided I would want to get a bigger group together to fill the time capsule than just the stuff that I would put in there. I would have enough to fill a decent sized capsule but really, who's going to care about just me in 100 years? So I think I would ask all of my colleagues from the 2008 International Leaders Against Pain Conference group and any readers of The ICIE blog who would like contribute to the time capsule and be part of a ceremony for burying it, to do so. So how about it? What would you like to put in this time capsule? Where should we bury it? Please leave a comment below detailing your ideas and what your contribution would be.
The stuff I would put in would include:
- A backup of The ICIE blog on a flash drive
- Also on the flash drive: all of the newsletters I wrote for the Albany, GA Area FM Support Group
- OK, let's just say everything I've ever written about my health focus - on the flash drive
- Copies of the books, DVDs and CDs that have helped me in my health journey - many of them are shown in no particular order on the amazon widget at the end of this post
My hope is that when the ceremony for the opening of the time capsule is done in 2112, everything in it will be obsolete because we will have conquered all of the health focus issues that our contributions tell the story of. Everyone will be living clean, green and healthy.
That's my dream for my time capsule.
