What's a hope you've got for 2030?

That my parents survive the diseases from poison dropped by the US during the Vietnam war. They were born after the war, but even 42 years later children are still born malformed and adults get cancer. The doctors don't really know what it is, but it's something internal - something malfunctioning. Not knowing is the worst part; we just know that the poison has lingered in the nature for all these decades and then trinkled into their system. At the moment I'm just enjoying time off my job and travelling by myself, getting my mind off it all. The Vietnam war is a war we've moved on from, so just I hope that there will be a point in time when the last traces of it will be gone, for good.
