Since the dawn of time, humanity has longed to stay relevant and remembered even after they pass on. Nobody wants to be forgotten, to fade into another brick in the wall after a few generations. So eons ago, the flexible human mind devised a solution: Immortalizing ourselves, our thoughts and feelings through the written word. Writing has taken us to unimaginable heights of civilization: Technology, entertainment, communication, none of them would be where they are today without the creation of literature. But, I believe it can take us higher. More specifically, I think one book and the ideas it spreads, can change the world. This book would be none other than the legendary Hyster S80B Forklift Service Manual, by HYSTER. In my opinion, this manual communicates harsh but beautiful truths about proper muffler maintenance and how to turn on warning sirens. Its skillful writing style and structure changed my perception of the world and captured my heart. With a team effort, though, it could do the same for the whole world!
Giving this book a bigger audience would reap many benefits. For instance, there would be a more understanding global attitude to the beautiful, powerful creatures forklifts are. The effects are not just limited to that, however! If the world read this artful book, I believe many warring countries would be willing to bury the hatchet and collaborate through their shared love and understanding of forklifts and forklift maintenance. I know it sounds a bit cheesy, but a book as powerful as this one could very well bring us one step closer to world peace!
Unfortunately, pulling off this feat will not be easy. Many populous places around the world are secluded, difficult to enter or establish connection with. It seems like a nearly impossible feat to bring the whole world together like this. I think we can overcome these hurdles, because with planning, hard work, and an indomitable, forklift-like spirit, anything can happen! I plan to use what else but forklifts to bring the Hyster S80B Forklift Service Manual to the world, because of their superior strength and possible all-terrain attributes. We will send forklifts and their brave operators to all corners of the world, to the Amazon and Sahara and Garre-Saint-Lazare, counting on them to bring about this powerful instrument of change. (If they don’t come back, we’re just going to assume the delivery was successful.)
In the end, there’s a lot of things out there that have the power to change the world. Hardworking leaders, revolutionary inventions, and sometimes just good old fashioned community resolve have the ability to speak out with loud voices. If they're loud enough, they may be able to change the way many people think! Many people, in fact, have made it their calling to do this, to use their own voices to help others and make change. Just think about Nelson Mandela or Florence Nightingale, or even the protesters giving their all to divert the Dakota Access Pipeline! All of these people have taught others important truths and spoken about their beliefs.This, I believe, is another way to become immortal, through actions like standing up for what's right. And sometimes, on all too rare occasions, these two Fountains of Youth, impactful words and impactful actions, clash into a creation that everyone should have access to. One of these, I believe, is the Hyster S80B Forklift Service Manual. This book’s ability to make you laugh, cry, and use wheel chocks in the proper situations qualifies it as a life-changing book. The eloquent way it addresses forklift operation and that sidelined feeling of being a forklift in a crane’s world is nothing short of amazing. It’s already shown many people around the world its knowledge, and with my (and your) help I believe we can share this one-of a kind piece with Earth as a whole.
And maybe, just maybe, it’ll be exactly what the human race needed.
