613 words - 3 pages

Where am I?Dita woke up from what felt like an eternity of horrid dreams. Cold sweat ran down her face as she pulled the covers over her moist flesh. The screeching of a record player could be heard in the distance. The memories of the dreams drifted away slowly as Dita got out of bed. She put on a pair of slippers. They had never been worn. The whole room around her looked a bit strange, but familiar. In fact, she could not remember anything but this room. Is this her home? Her brain tells her that this is where she belongs. Home. The brain releases endorphins.On the other side of the wall, Jack Cane debates with his supervisor, Mr. Wanly."Sir, these people...they aren't living. They have no past. Their future is here, and here is nothing. ...view middle of the document...

Then, he started to forget who we were. My mother, she just cried after seeing him. Before he died, he couldn't remember his own name." Cane turns away, so his supervisor would not see the tears in his eyes.Bryanna Hawkins 2"Cane, you know first hand. These people ruin the lives of their families. Not just the way your grandfather did either. They get frailer and frailer, increasingly distant. It can kill the people that care for them. That is where we come in. We take the burden away from these people's families.""But sir, is this the answer. Is conditioning them to think that this is where they live really the answer? Do we have to erase their memories? What if we replaced all of the bad memories with something beautiful and let them be happy for their last moments of life? All we are doing is conditioning them to be zombies. Without your memories, have you lived? Do you have a soul? We're messing with nature right now!""Cane, I am beginning to think that you aren't cut out for this job. You have to many worries. These people are happy, their families are happy.""The only reason you are doing this is to get rid of health care. The government does not have to pay for senior citizens' medicine anymore. They are dead weight to the government because they do not work. You make them forget their diseases, you are killing them. They do not have a fighting chance. You remove interdependence from their lives."Dita feels tired. She feels like she should lie down again and take a nap. The state hopes that she does not wake up. Another victim of a 'New and Improved Health Care Plan.' This may sound insane to you. Of course, the government will protect you when you are old. However, is your state really as far of from this as you would like to think?
