Taking an interest in the world around you is a way of showing that you care about the other living things that inhabit the world together with us. Sometimes it is hard to get a handle on what is truly happening in the news. With the advent of the internet and social media, we have many sources to tap into in order to get an accurate picture. It is our responsibility to ensure our sources are reliable.

    Poem About Michael Jackson

    You taught me the ABC's and my 123's. Your musical genius will go down in history.
    Your nickname was the King of Pop. You Never Stopped Until You Got Enough.
    People of all ages learned to Rock With You, Billie Jean wasn't your lover and you Beat It too.
    Your music was Black or White, Thrilling was your game. Now that you're not here the world will never be the same.
