Rumors of Jurassic World 2 - No, please don't!

So I read online about the possibility of a Jurassic World 2 in the making.
I really hope these are just rumors.

I will say why:

How many of us who lived the 90's remember going to the movies to see Jurassic Park? Pretty much any one who watched it remembers that day.

I do. It was my birthday and I was sitting between the boy who was my best friend and the boy who had a crush on me, and wishing the boy I had a crush on had come too.

I remember leaving the theater with that feeling that I had just seen something pretty amazing. I wanted to go home and write movies like that one I had just seen. Mostly I remember being in the movie, because that is how I watched movies as a kid - I was always in there, the screen, with the characters. And when the movie was grand, like Jurassic Park, I felt like I had just had the adventure of my life. ... I left the theater feeling like I had had the greatest adventure of my whole entire life ... and in 12 years of life you have already had lots of adventures ... well, at least in the theater.

Now, how many of us actually remembers going to the movies to see Jurassic Park 2 or 3? Honestly. I mean, unless this was the movie where you met the love of your life, they are pretty unmemorable - like most sequels, except for perhaps Indiana Jones, which wasn't a sequel, it was a trilogy.

So really, do we need a sequel for Jurassic World? It was a great rebirth of Jurassic Park, with all the references to the old park and the being released on the same day gave it a somewhat magic aura... Do we need to ruin this by coming up with a sequel?

I really hope they don't do it. I know I am not going to watch it.
