Year 2000

Year 2,000

The year two thousand seems to be on the tip of every ones tongue. From what
will happen to what to expect when it comes. Others believe that these few days
till new years will be the last. Yet there are people who believe nothing will
happen. In either extreme, I believe there needs to be some light shone on the
matter at hand.

Y2K is the shortened version of the year two thousand. If you were to put the
year 1999 in the same way it would be Y1K. I don’t know who originally coined
that phrase but it has defiantly become a worldwide saying. Y2K has struck fear
in people’s hearts and laughter in the souls of others. All because no one
really knows what will happen, when and after Y2K hits.

No one really knows what will happen when and after ‘the ball drops’.
Some people have prepared for the worst. They have gone to live in underground
housing, stocked up on food, and cashed out at the banks. They have bought
generators and seeds for growing their own food. Yet others have gone on with
their lives like nothing is going to happen. I believe that something’s will
happen but the world will not end.

The reason I believe this is because of the research I have done and my faith
in the government. President Clinton stated in a press release that there was
nothing to worry about with Y2K. He stated that they have fixed the problem and
not to worry. Although there is reason to doubt what he said because of past
affairs, I believe he was telling the truth.
