1. First of all, a piece of news. The US police finally found the guys who committed the terrorist attacks at the Boston Marathon. These guys were brothers who were living in the states for 10 years. The more I think about it, the more horrible I realize it is. We talked about this in our latest VIP lesson. I can understand why many people are upset with how the US government is. But killing innocent people is certainly NOT the answer. An 8 year old boy died, as did a female Chinese student, as did another innocent white girl. Even if these terrorists hated the US government, this is obviously unacceptable. Sadly, it will be a step backwards in world peace. Why kill innocent people in any situation? It just creates more hate and more war. Sickening! I hope that someday, this type of thing can come to an end. I read and can understand the comments on my last blog post regarding this topic. I appreciate everyone who said something there. I guess I just really don’t understand what these fools were thinking. They hate the USA. Ok, fine, but their answer is to kill innocent people? For what purpose? This will just cause more hate and more violence in the world. Not less. This is definitely a step in the wrong direction. There are other ways to show disagreement with a government. If someone thinks the US government is too violent and selfish, is the answer to do the same thing to innocent Americans? I don’t think so. I’m afraid to see what will happen now. If you guys have any thoughts or comments, I’d love to read them.
2. VIP Lesson #200 is coming up this week. Awesome! Add and I have a special surprise for that. It should be sweet! Hint: Now would be a pretty smart time to get a VIP membership (In case you have been thinking about it. It’s getting insanely good in there…..)
3. LearnEnglish232 is off to a great start. Thanks so much to all you guys who have been commenting and enjoying the lessons.
