This is an example of migrant workers
I have read many articles that are related to this one, where there was public shooting or a robbery. Eventhough there are a lot of article similar to this, this particular one was special and really grabbed me because of the title. At first I thought that it would be a normal shooting at a school and a lot of people would get hurt or killed, I don’t tend to be comfortable reading them because I feel very sorry to the people that died when they are completely innocent. As this was of the choices for AOW, I kept reading and found out that the shooter was actually one of the students. I almost jumped out of my sit in shock because, I had never read anything about any student killing other students. My first image of this boy Lane is completely out of his mind. Who would go to school armed with weapons? I think he is obsessed with video games because these days people are making too many blood and violence video games like Call of Duty and other First Person Shooting game. Then I kept reading and another fact shocked me, the victims are just random. He did not object or target anyone. Lane just came in the cafeteria and started shooting at random students.
There are variety of things in this article that had made me think and connect to what I have read in other articles are these. I had noticed that after the shooting, the police had captured Lane, they said Lane is still in “detention”. “Lane’s grandfather and two aunts sat beside him in court. Joyce asked that Lane be kept in detention” said the writer. He should be locked up right now according to his age and his actions. Not be there adored by the family members. A few years ago, my dad had read me an article of a 18 years old mad at a friend fall going out the his crush. He then brought a AK-47 to school ordering the guys to line up, and the girl to line up. He started shooting and killing everyone one by one. Police was not there quick enough to save the last person. He killed almost 50 students and injured 20 people including the teachers and staffs. I’ve read that Lane is also bullied at school. This is a huge point because now there would be anger going on in this article. A student in his grade tried to help him, posting this on Facebook. ”I wanted so bad to try and help you but i could see in your eyes you didn’t care anymore. I’m sorry buddy,” said his friend. I think he tried and made a good attempt to stop his anger, but Lane is just seriously hurt inside.
I’ve read the article over and over again asking myself, is there another reason why he had open fire. After all the reading, I had came to the conclusion that he is not a bad guy. When you are bullied, you tend to do things you would never think of doing. Killing 3 people was never tend to be in his mind, he was just too hurt and his emotions had lead him to murder of 3 innocent people. I’ve learned now that when you choose the wrong choice of solving a problem, the result will cause you your life, or even 15-20 years in jail.
Some of the articles I had read about money and how wasting it too much can be a problem are the same over and over because they kept talking about one problem and one problem only. But this one talked about how people used shopping on Black Friday as a way to use money and waste it. This made me stopped and think because I agree and disagree. At first I didn’t know what Black Friday until the substitute Mr.Richert told me. It was after thanksgiving when people went and shop for things and the price would have a HUGE discount. This could be such great day and families could come to shops and get the things they need for only half price, but this can be a problem because the families are taking time off just to go shopping and they are not spending time with each other. This could be a waste of time because at this point, everyone will go out to shop and if you are not there in time, you will be waiting for almost 3 hours.
“[Shopping] is like a drug,” says James Roberts, a marketing professor at Baylor University. This I agree to because sometimes I see people buy things that they just leave there at home or buy something so expensive that they use for 2-3 days. I have a sister that will always shop, she shop almost every weekend and when she goes to for example Singapore, all she does is shop. Our family waste almost S$1,000 just to spend on her clothes and handbags, this is a waste of money.
“Our brains releases chemicals like dopamine and serotonin which actually produce feelings of pleasure, and we can become addicted to those feelings. But money and material possessions will not bring you happiness, and not only that, they can cause more harm than good.” This on my opinion is untrue, people take shopping addiction too seriously, people shop because they love doing it and eventhough this is a waste of money and also waste of time, this is what they enjoy doing and what makes them happy, again, some people feel that waiting money is there happiness but some people think wasting money is bad, people have different opinions.
I had came to a conclusion that different people has different thought on how they spend there time on Christmas. Its just how they feel there Christmas would want to be and how they would be happy.
This week’s AOW reminds me a lot of Micheal Jackson because long time ago when racism was still a big problem, he looked around seeing all the light and white colored people getting more respect from people and still now, most of the white kids go to colleage and the darker one getting less care so he turned himself into a light colored skin tone person and now regretting because now he needs medicine and lotion to care for his skin. Some of the Indians has religion of there skins like putting on jewery representing there richness but is confusing to me that they don’t have a religion of there skin color, i had seen Martin Luther King Jr made a speech about skin color.
Some of the things I noticed about the article was she had made a lot of connections with different things,things that nearly cannot be connected and she made it so it is possible to connect with. Another thing I also noticed was she made connections with different locations and I thought this was a good idea because if you know what are happening with other countries, you could compare and make it better or if its already worked out, you could improve it in the future.After I read this article I learned a lot things but these are my top three. First I learned that skin tone are nothing to joke about, we are all the same in the inside, no matter if we are black, white, we are all humans and you should be proud of who you are. Second I learned that believe in yourself ,sometimes you listen to others when they are wrong, sometimes you’re right and changes your mind when you see people agreeing on the wrong thing. Third I learned that you shouldn’t judge people when you don’t know who they are, if you can, judge them with a positive thoughts.
In our script, we used different kinds of CCs and each have htere own meanings:
We had used these CCs because we thought these were the most simple yet important.
This article reminds me of a newspaper article i read about 2 weeks ago about the people disagreeing to shut the schools down for 2 months just because they are fixing the electrics. While i was reading this article, there were some things that i haven’t known before was, this kind of problem could be brought to a bigger audience like the government and also the people around the country. On my opinion, this could be brought up is because enough people had seen this article and was curious ,even though these students are migrants students, even though there are poor, they should be treated like with the same respect as the other higher and richer students, they are all Chinese and they are also welcome to this society and they need to have the right to study like the rich and they need this education to have a better future in there life. However, when I was reading this article,something i wanted to learn and find out more about was did they ever fixed this problem? On this last sentence of the article “China’s rulers should realise now that it is in their long-term interests to listen.”Even though it said the gorverment have had an eye on this problem, are they acting and willing to help these workers and students. If they don’t some of them will end up incredibly poor and some might not even have shelters to live in. This problem could cause people to live in the streets. If they do fix this, they could make China better than it is now. Anyhow, the last fact i wanted to say was what i have learned. After reading and discussing my opinions, i know why the government wasn’t really playing attention this problem, they had country to handle and they thought this kind of education problem can be handled later, but turned out leaving the problem would cause so many harm to the people, so what i have learned is no matter what kind of problem it is, big or small, you should try to solve it before its too late.
