It is the “What-Ifs” that make me wonder and speculate about different roads created and taken, people born or died or never existed at all—so many “what ifs”.
…there had been no slavery and Africa was left to develop on its own?
…all treaties made by the federal government to the First Nation had been honored?
…Hitler had never been born? Or, at least, had been born in a remote part of Iceland?
…the Irish Potato Famine had not happened? Or, if the English government had intervened to help? Or, if America had intervened?
…Napoleon had fallen off his horse early in his career and suffered a disabling injury?
…you or I had decided a different path in our teen years?
Really, it is a game of dominoes. Lay the tiles one way or another. And then stand them up, give a push….then watch all fall.
