What will the world be like 10 years from now?
Let’s hope that we learn from history and learn that we cannot judge people by the color of their skin, their sexual orientation or their socio-economic standing. If we learn this, the world will be much kinder and more accepting. So in 10 years, perhaps more people will be happier with the lives they lead.
In 10 years, if we haven’t acknowledged global warming and done much to slow it down, Napa will be on its way out and Walla Walla, Washington will be the prime grape growing region.
