Well after reading the quote provided on the blog. I really mulled over this simple plea to not just live as a blatant cog in the machine of society. Does Koppel not hold such a valid point? Most of us high school students enjoy our freedom from the world around us but is ignorance really bliss? I don’t believe so, the benefits of being an informed citizen of our great nation is something to be cherished. Many places throughout the world don’t even have TV’s to keep them updated on whats currently going on around them. My point is we shouldn’t take advantage of the technology available to us. Theres no such thing a being to young to have an educated opinion on our world. Slow down and open your eyes, look at the world around you, get educated be informed and begin early preparation to being an adult.
