By MOLLY BAKER
Joplin is a cool place now, and in the future, Joplin will be amazing.
Consider all the technology at the present time. Now imagine how much more things there will be and how much better they will be. Soon, we will be in cars that fly and we will be living in the sky.
Walk down Main Street and be amazed. You will see the friendly trolley strolling down the lane. Look at the beautiful parks and entertain yourself at the mall or any place in Joplin.
Today, Joplin is a blast and an amazing experience. Picture how much more it will be 25 years from now. We are proud to be citizens of this amazing city- Joplin.
