What happens everyday

I’m sure the average day for the regular ‘ol high-schooler seems pretty much the same. In a brief summary, it should look something like this: Eat breakfast, go to school, work, go home, do homework, and go to bed. We hardly ever stop to think about other people. We hardly think, “How many people in my classroom are having a horrible day? How many people are having the best? Who here is living their life to the fullest and enjoying every moment and who isn’t?”

I think we should all take a moment to think about what goes on in the world while we’re preoccupied with our own lives. So what exactly goes on?

Well, my dudes, let me tell you…
