Today we are so connected that we are disconnected. We as of today can send a message to a person in a matter of seconds thanks to the great technology of the internet. You may have heard of the movie called "Hotel Rwanda" but what you may have not realized that this story actually happened! thousands of children, woman, and men were killed in a period of years. and yet somehow, if you've been watching the news, an elementary shooting that involved 20 kids dying and 6 adults dying made bigger headlines then thousands of people dying in Africa. So I personally have made myself a pledge to get online everyday and read 5 stories of world news. I have left a few links below of websites for world news. Lets get connected!!!
