Let’s think global warming.
Let’s think the future.
Let’s think the fate of the Earth.
And let’s think of the children.
Imagine a futuristic North America destroyed by earthquakes, hurricanes, and floods. Only the mainland would survive, and only survive barely on the materials left from the devastation. The kids are now breadwinners, workers, or (if lucky) the ones who live in luxury, near the capitol of the remaining country that we now call “Panem.”
Many don’t live that long.
Twenty-three 12-18 year olds will die certainly in one year, and die only because of one competition that forces them to fight against each other to survive. Only one can make it to the end, gaining lifelong honor, and food for their city and themselves. Only one will be able to see his/her family and friends again.
