You might think going to a zoo is actually helping our world in many ways, since people have jobs being paid, people find enjoyment, and specieas all over the world are perserved. Well, that’s not exactly true.
a lemur by fatedsnowfox
There are a lot of sacrifices zoos must make in order to maintain a “certain” type of species. It might even involve the risk of extinction of another animal. In this article, and gives a great example of this senario, only that people have now pointed this out to the public.
Really, scenarios like these are very difficult to explain, or manage themselves, because of so much people who want to preserve a bunch of animals for the future. We all know zoos must spend lots of money to make room for other animals, especially when it’s a problem enough managing the animals they already have. The “big” message here is obvious to me, and it’s that people really need to make big sacrifices in order for them to conserve something of large, even for zoos, governments, the Red Cross, and World Relief.
It teaches me that, you can’t save everything in the world, you can’t actually save the whole world from something, it’s cause there’s just too much people with too much opinions and needs that effect the issues we need to take care of. Though it might not sound that important to people, that a couple of species of lemurs might not be able to be saved from extinction. But it shows how, we as people, react to these types of things, or how we solve them.
It tells us that it’s much more harder than it already is to make a change in the world, or somehow effect/replace how life on this earth works.
Middle school, has always been the center of my life
for even when it’s about to end
it’s the process when a boy becomes a man
and it’s always the journey that counts in the end
Middle school, many came and go
many miles trekked so far
with many excitements, and many worries
making stress into life said hard
Entry#3 Letter to:MartinLutherKing, Gandhi, Rosa Parks, a bully, person who is different, yourself, Linda Brown, MLK’s kids.
Dear Martin Luther King
I felt bad for you for when I heard about you getting shot the day after you gave a speech about the mountaintop, and I really think you deserved to have a longer life. I really think you were a very inspirational man, you gave out speeches to the public for what you thought was right, what was fair, and you tried to make the world more fair, even when you knew people were going to threaten to kill you or when people thought you were a disgraceful person, you still kept on going. You just kept on telling people your opinions about the world, and try to make it a better place by telling what you thought was right and wrong. And now the world is much better thanks to you. Laws that were once corrupted have been turned around. I just don’t know how you can be so strong-willed and be so dedicated to your purpose. A lot more people need to be more open out, like you, maybe one of those people should be me. How could you be so open out to the public? How were you able to have the guts to both speak out to the public and tell the truth to people what you think needs to be changed, even thought there might be some down slides? Can you please tell me your secret? If you can at least.
Just another person,

After reading this article, it made my mind think how much more important or dangerous a reporter’s job can be, especially if you are in a place where lots of serious things start to happen.
Trees in Cambodia by iied
So in this week’s article “A Cause– and Questions– in Cambodia,” really does brings out a lot of the article, (as I trying to emphasize the idea of Questions being brought into this topic). To explain easily, a reporter/activist named Chut Wutty and two other people, Mathieu Young and Vannarin Neou were working on a investigation on illgeal logging in the country of Cambodia, and when a nearby armed man open-fired near Chut Wutty’s location, Chut Wutty was shot, leaving life with his two friends fleeing and unprotected in the area.
It was lucky that his two friends had ducked in cover just in time before they were shot by the men.
Surely, I can obviously point our many questions to this incident. Like, how did the shooting start? Were much more people involved with this? Are there reasons why our two reporters aren’t given a much better insight on the scene? And why did the man fired, or who fired first?
But what I started feeling a lot more about this incident was the thought of someone’s life as a reporter/informer/activist could be so dangerous.
Before I’ve always thought crowds with lots of protesting really came from researching and start standing in a crowd to tell people what is going on.
Well, I can also say there were SOME other things that involved a lot more desperate things, but this “issue” seemed less serious yet was somehow taken to the point where a man was killed.
But I never knew a job like this just to get people informed could have involved such dangerous risks. I realized some activists have to go this far just to tell people what is going on in their country. I felt that Chut Wutty was more like a sherlock holmes in this article, when really he was just another man who wants change. Probably, everyone wants a change.
As seasons past, the color of the leaves start changing by tidefan
Now that I’m basically finished about getting most of my points across, one final thing I would like to write down for you readers is that sometimes people just need to know more about ourselves, the world, and basically the people all around us. The one thing humans should NOT do is NOT get involved with everything. Sometimes, stuff like Kony, or your regular neighborhood gossip, is something you should, always consider. That is the problem with us. We don’t consider the problems or issues people have around us, which is the reason why not just a single person can make a change, cause what’s the point in making a change when no one else in the world but you considers about it?
You want a change in people, you get people to know, and become open-minded for people to let you learn about the problems and issues they consider something to change.
