In the article HARD AT WORK by the Nata village blog, it talks about how children have to start working at a young age so they will be working the rest of their life and they will be good at it. This matters to me because children in America can take their lives for granted. Some kids complain when they have to do chores, but in Botswana kids have to do things such as collecting water from the stand pipe to mix with sand and making mud bricks for their adobe homes.


In the article 400 arrested during Halloween weekend by the Rocky Mountain News, it talks about how people were arrested on the Halloween weekend for driving under the influence. It also say that at least four people were killed and the accidents involved alcohol. This matters to me because I like to have fun on Halloween, but I also like to stay safe. I think people should enjoy themselves, but they should try to stay safe by having a designated driver or not driving if they are drunk.


In the article, Women in ice cream shop crash had meth in blood it shows how people make poor decisions every day. The article talks about a car crash where both cars were making bad decisions. One car had two women in it who had very high levels of meth and marijuana in their systems, and the other car had an illegal immigrant in it who was going 78 mph. The car with the women in it made a horrible turn and the car going 78 mph broadsided it. Both cars launched into a baskin robins. In the end both women were killed and a three year old in the baskin robins was also killed. This matters to me because I try to make good desicions every day and try to stay safe. I will never speed and i will never do drugs.
