In Manhattan, there stands a mural commemorating the great Joe Strummer, lead singer of The Clash, and beside the painting of his face reads: "The future is unwritten." 

What do you think? Is the future unwritten? Is there such a thing as destiny, or do we make our own fate?
A little girl named Destiny shares her thoughts on the matter. Plus, a man is convinced he knows exactly how he is going to die, and a couple decides they are fated to be together. [Original broadcast: Season 9].

Featuring Ophira EisenbergArthur Jones and Buzz & Dina Goldstein.

Ophira's story was recorded at SMITH Magazine's Six Words Live Show on February 14, 2013 in New York City. Special thanks to Larry Smith.
