Ready for an emotional rollercoaster ride into the not-so-distant future? No, I’m not talking about my new book, Soul Survivor. However, I am talking about a concept I wrote about in my first book, Donovan’s Law. The concept dealt with the placing of a micro-chip under the skin of your child in the guise of avoiding every parent’s nightmare. Well, here we go…
The first quotes are from the “Futuristic thriller based on today’s headlines”, Donovan’s Law. The second set of quotes is from a news article which ran on October 17, 2013:
“…the concept that sold the pet owners will be used for the parents of children under 18 years of age. Think of it. The idea of being able to track and locate your child 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. No more fear of losing a child in an amusement park or even worse, kidnapping. By simply typing in the number of your child into any computer, including your cell phone, you will know where your child is within one minute.” (Donovan’s Law. OakTara Publishers. Waterford, VA. 2011. Page 114).
My Fox News – Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas:
“A North Texas man who got separated from his child at an amusement park has created an app to help keep track of kids in big places. The Buddy Tag features a wristband that the child wears and is connected to an app on someone’s smartphone. “Whenever the kids wander too far away the app will sound the alarm vibrate the phone and pop up a message to let you know hey the kids too far away,” said app inventor Willie Wu.”
Can you see it or is it just me? Parents are going to want this safety item; and who could blame them? But think about it, this child safety device requires the children to keep the wristband in place. If there is a micro-chip placed under the skin that can do the same thing plus add name, address, and social security number…I’ll let your imaginiation take it from here.
Donovan’s Law: A Futuristic Thriller Based on Today’s Headlines…should possibly be recaptured as… “A Not-So-Far-Into-The-Future Thriller Based on Today’s Headlines”.
