Today in class Mr. McCusker was talking about the new threat that North Korea now poses against us. I ,for one, was completely shocked, to now know that something that large and important was going on, it scared me a lot. I didn’t know what scared me more, that fact that it happened or that fact that I didn’t know about it. I got me thinking, do we as teenagers, need to be more aware of what is going on in the world?
After I though about it, personally, I do not think that I have ever sat down and watched the news. I also realized that the only way I ever knew what was going on in the world was through other people like my parents or my teachers. For a long time i thought that it was ok, but lately all these huge thing have been going on in the news and I think that its things we should know as U.S. citizens. As U.S citizens we, not only should, but need to know what is going on in our world today. Especially if it has to do with our safety.
Do you want to see a really funny fail...
Maybe if she watched some more news she would have been able to answer this question....
I makes me mad too when people do not have the facts about what they are trying to talk about. I think that if more people would watch the news and lean about foreign affairs, our country would function better and we would make smarter choices that would help our country move forward and grow.
What do you guys think? Do you watch the news regularly? Do you think more people should watch they news?
