You can see the raw emotion in her eyes

Reasons to smile:
You’re still breathing

A kitten just did the cutest thing ever
You just read the best book of your life
You came up with some awesome life quote in your head
You look extra beautiful today

You remembered a random joke in awkward timing

Your Dad does really strange impersonations
You Carpe Diem
You understood what the line above this meant

Tonight, I was sitting and enjoying my daily skinny on today’s politics and happenings. Naturally, it was Fox News being the network that my grandmother subscribes to. The topics debated made me chuckle. “The War on Religion and America”.
Firstly, I’d like to point out that America was never intended to be a religious country. Though, Fox News may disagree with me, this country was built on the right to question mainstream philosophies without persecution or oppression. With that, I find this particular debate somewhat of a paradox.
The pinnacle (if you will) of the debate was the idea that our nation was falling apart because the Christian philosophy is slowly fading out. This destruction of religious practices is crucifying our nation.
My friends, fellow Americans, this puts our country along the line of some theocracy. We are not theocracy. The idyl American society is an eclectic society.
Fox News claims that Atheist Academias and the President of the US are the Destructors of our morals. However, it’s ideology that the destruction of a religion is the downfall of a nation dismisses the first amendment. Freedom of speech, religion, press, and a peaceful assembly.
We’re an eclectic nation. Ground where all are welcome to unify under the agreement of natural rights.
We can ignite a fire that’ll never die
Or put out the flames with a brief good bye
We can kiss each other’s pain away
or pretend we never had a thing to say
We can toast with champagne and wine
Or go on as if emptiness is fine
We can prey with dreams on a midnight sky
Or destroy what we built with a lie
It seems as though our society lacks question.
Better yet, they lack the ability to analyze new theories due to their utterly blind faithfulness.
It’s like they admire all these great men and women that revolutionized our society. People that question the norm. It’s like they’ve turned their nose up to the people that opposed our great heroes.
Do they not see that they are the ones pushing against new ideas?
They only agree with it because it’s the present.
It’s what is accepted amongst our society.
If you were to drop in on most any American high school these days, what would you see? Cell phones. Lots of them. Virtually all students have one, and it’s typical to see them tapping away or listening to music through their ear buds — not just in the hallways during the five minutes between classes, but also in the classroom, at every opportunity the teacher gives them. […]
Whatever a school’s approach to technology, cell phones seem to be nearly ubiquitous. An April 2010 study by the Pew Internet and American Life Project and the University of Michigan found that in schools that permitted students to have cell phones, 71 percent of students sent or received text messages on their cell phones in class. In the majority of schools — those that allow students to have phones in school but not use them in the classroom - the percentage was almost as high: 65%. Even in schools that ban cell phones entirely, the percentage was still a shocking 58%. […]
So what’s the solution? Do teachers simply need to crack down harder, to impose harsher penalties against extracurricular texting and Internet surfing? Or are the cell phones themselves a symptom of a larger problem?

It’s not the cellphone policy…it’s the way we go about the information. Giving me answers and expecting me to regurgitate them on a test is one thing. But if you want the students to really learn and be engaged, you must strike a curiosity with in them. Make them put together a puzzle. Have them answer a question on their own before you inject them with info.
