The future is in our hands, but the past cannot be changed. What would happen If you could go back to the past while dinosaurs still soar, and every single move you made needs be carefully thought? In Ray Bradbury’s short story “The Sound of Thunder”, our protagonist, Eckles, managed to go back to the past. However, he made a great mistake, by doing so, he taught us to think about every movement we take, and listen to what others say.
The world changed, just because of the death of one single butterfly. Eckles, not paying any attention to the warning Travis gives him, “Stay on the Path. Don’t go off. I repeat. Don’t go off” (page 3). They were meant to shoot the Tyrannosaurs Rex, while Eckles was too scared and turned to run as fast as he could to get away from it, not thinking about the consequences, and making a big mistake on running in to muddy grass. he forgot about the warning. The butterfly he stepped on didn’t catch his attention, and the warning just seems to flow behind him this little move he changed history. “Not a thing like that! Not a butterfly!” (page 236) he cried when he found out about it. It’s so small, so tiny, but so important. He proved the point that people should think before they took the action, that when went back to the future, and this small thing led to a change, all because of him not thinking before his action.
an enjoyable day, be happy /(^.^)/
