Everywhere you look around is corrupt. It is because of this egotistical attitude about
ourselves. Why these bad things always happen, like on the news its always bad, like rape,
murder, not caring about people's lives, also, corruption in political relms. This list goes on
and on. I wonder about children who grow up in this mess. How will they turn out to be in the
future ? The earth is as it is, because people do not want to listen and do better. Education is
very important and look at all of these high school dropouts. It is really a shame, but all we
can do is pray and hope things will turn out for the better.
