Well i believe myself to be very informed for my age. Every day i come home after school and put on the news. I keep up to date on on current events and have a strong opinion on most current matters which i suppose may be something i can work on. As a very stern conservative my views on more liberal subjects are very negative. In response to Koppel i have decided to try to soften my conservative views, perhaps be more accepting to the views of others even if they oppose what i believe. So my goal that i have set is acceptance, to be open to the thoughts and beliefs of others and give their point of view fair consideration.
