A Matter Of Opinion

Opinions: Worries made public

Just returned from an "Authors Con" at Salk Middle School in North Spokane.

Opinion writing can sometimes be understood as what we worry about. We write out the worry and then try to come up with something to alleviate the worry.

I asked the students to tell us what they worry about. Here's a sampling of what they said:

"I worry about global warning. Have you noticed it's only June and it is getting up to 80!"

"Shootings in school and the war in Iraq."

"I am worried about all the diseases in the United States."

"I am worried about the war in Iraq. It is killing our husbands, moms, wives, sisters, brothers and daughters. It can change your life forever."

"I am worried about lunch detention."
