FOR THE WEEK OF AUGUST 14, 2006
The newest 4400 Fan of the Week, Aaron, doesn't believe that special abilities are needed to change the world; only the human intellect is necessary. Nevertheless, if he could have a power it would be to allow people to communicate effectively with each other despite any language or cultural barriers. Here is his entry:
My name is Aaron P. I have been watching the 4400 since the beginning and I cannot believe how awesome it has become.
I bring up the 4400 at work sometimes, and I cannot believe how responsive people are. I think they will judge me as a geek, but I find out that they are just as interested in listing to me talk about the show, as they would if they watched it themselves!
I am a student at the Sacramento City College and I feel it is my purpose in the world to teach science in a class setting and write science and philosophy in peer reviewed journals. The 4400 have a purpose and I feel that this holds true for every human being.
We do not need special abilities to change the world (we can do it with our intellect), but if I could have an ability, it would be the ability of the Rhetoric Link. My ability works because it allows any human being to communicate effectively with any other human. Even if they speak completely different languages, the meaning of their thoughts would come through in my presence.
This ability would come in handy with the scientific community as well as government institutions like the United Nations. It would be most effective in peace negotiations between warring nations.
Abilities would definitely come in handy in the real world, but as long as everyone is just as inspired as the 4400 are, they can use their intellect to do the same.
Maia's Diary rocks, so everyone should check it out!
