1. Throughout my life going to church has been a huge aspect that has helped me deal with the “information glut.” Back home I attend a Missouri Senate Lutheran Church almost every Sunday. They have instilled their values and opinions about right and wrong according to the bible in me. Looking to the church and taking into consideration their standpoint on a topic is important to me. Everyone needs guidance in their lives that help create boundaries.
2. I experience the bureaucracy at school. During my college experience I have stumbled across teachers and teacher assistants that I have had to alter my views in order for them to give me the grade I want on a paper or test. What’s the point of going to college if I can’t express how I feel? At college we are taught to think and do things a certain way. We follow because getting that A in the class is really our only door to medical school, graduate school, or a job.
3. Recently anti-depression and sleeping pills have been prescribed to many people. They have helped those in need. However, some people have become dependent on them and acquire an addiction. They rely on their prescription. Some people are even taking more than one type of pill, which can be dangerous. For example, Heath Ledger recently died from a drug overdose. Even though prescription pills have helped many people with sleeping apnea, depression, and anxiety they have created a bigger problem, addiction.
