Adapting Successfully Essay

Human beings are absolutely amazing. We as humans are, for the most part, very good at adapting quickly to the situations we are in. For example, a family from my church who has lived here in the United States for their entire lives just picked up and moved to Sierra Leone, Africa.

On a larger scale, this fact gets a little trickier. The way I see it, when the overall population grows, the potential for new inventions and discoveries increases. In the future, there could be an invention so people could live in the sea. That seems far-fetched now, but the cell phone seemed far-fetched back in the 1800’s
