I have had the pleasure of working as a law clerk. It was in this capacity, as a clerk, I surrounded myself with attorneys and court officials who took their jobs very seriously.
I have had the pleasure of meeting and working with representatives of the US Marshals Office and in doing so built a repoire of respect and mutual understanding with highly intelligent, pragmatic and reasonable individuals.
I studied to be a journalism major at a local university because I feel that society must be informed about the way the world and politics work as well as what people need to know to make informed decisions. I have been lucky enough to garner perspective on a host of topics from many different and reliable sources.
There is still a great many things that go unknown in today’s society. I am of the opinion many people reach conclusions without being properly informed. I beg of you my friends to always consider the source when you are informed of any particular piece of information.
It has been my experience that people believe what they do because their understanding of a particular situation is formulated from their personal experiences in life.
I urge you friends to take caution in being too bold in your beliefs based off of one singular source of information.
If you have a smartphone, and chances are you do, I would like to recommend that you download the Associated Press app from your Google or Apple platforms. I have also read and enjoy the objectivity found in the Guardian. Another good source is ABC news. ABC news journalists seem to get information that other news sources fail to.
At any rate I just want to stress that when you hear something on the news to exercise caution and remember there are many sides to a story.
