Short Story: A New Place: A New Home
It was the beginning of a new frontier. The edge of the empire would
be over thousands of miles away. This was a new land, a place for a
new manifest destiny. That was the dream I couldn't help but to have.
It was haunting my every thought like an impossible mission. The
challenges to complete such a task where quite possibly
insurmountable, but we had no choice. It was almost like a virus, or a
plague. Always invading and conquering until there were no more
space to invade. I envisioned a place where many would
gather and create a community out side of the tyranny of the other motherlands. A
new civilization an agrarian typology that would be completely
self-sustainable, that could harness the energy of all the elements
around it: The sun, the water, and the new land to create in harmony a
peaceful truly free civilization.
