Journey to the Past (The War of the Worlds)
The very first time I knew about the War of the Worlds was when my parents generously bought me and my siblings our own sets of encyclopedias. I was about ten years old then, and at that age, I have already started a harmonious relationship with books.
I loved one particular set of encyclopedia. It has books about ancient buildings, natural sciences, systems of the body, events and many more. With pictures and attracting titles, I was definitely pulled in as if it was the latest trend in fashion. I liked the events book the most. It had variety of pictures from the happenings from the past, and I’ve always been a fan of history.
Upon flipping the pages of the said encyclopedia, I came across a picture of a radio man. I assumed he was into the radio stuff because he was wearing a headphone and beside his picture was a poster that loudly said Martians Attack! Or something like that. It was alarming, at the first glance.
Fast forward to a Sunday, specifically 29th of July, year 2007, while I was using my sister’s laptop to check my Friendster account and my Multiply account, I decided to check Blackboard. I came across the Assignments page of our CA class, and then I met the five-word title that I haven’t seen for more or less six years. Hello the War of the Worlds (and yeah, hello assignment!)
So what do I know about The War of the Worlds? Well, honestly speaking, not much as you expect from a history-enthusiast. Hey, I have my reasons. First, just because I am fond of history doesn’t mean I know everything, and second, I am so not into aliens and Martians and all those invading stuffs. I do not believe in those, so yes, I am clueless that The War of the Worlds was actually fake.
But what if I was born in the late 1920’or early 1930’s and I was able to listen to the live broadcast of the radioman, would I have believed it? YES.
Think about this, as a kid, I thought that The War of the Worlds event history is real....
