Falcon Heene The Balloon Boy: The Trend Has Come
By: Sunlita Citra T.
Today, there’s a shocking news about a boy who floated through the space with a balloon craft. Everyone is panic because they thought he was in there, but after several hours later the balloon landed and the boy wasn’t there. Later, he was found safely at his house, on the attic.
I’m not going to analyze is it a true story or a hoax. You can find millions news about him if you search the keywords like “balloon boy” at Google. What I want to say is about this social trend.
Everyone wants to be a special person nowadays, it’s about popularity, it’s also about money. I don’t say that Falcon’s family search for a popularity through this breaking news, but in fact, they gained that. In this era of massive informations, news, from around the world, being special means something big. Through every year, there will be more humans in this world. Population getting bigger and bigger. Yes, you must be something special if you want to stand out from the crowd, they said.
But, in the other hand, I do believe that if this really happen, we’ll find that it’s hard to find normal person. If we study about the normality and abnormality, there’s a point that the great ammount of people means they’re normal, and the rest (with less quantity) means abnormal. So, what will happen if everyone wants to be a special one, and only some who want to be a normal being?
Through this article I want to say that being a normal person isn’t something wrong. Everyone is already a special person because all of us have a unique personality. Actually, we don’t need to be somebody so unusual just to attract something. We’re all attractive!
But, this trend has come, the trend which cause more people want to be so unusual! So prepare yourself to see more breaking news from the world!
