CNN Student News

by Emily Sparkles

We watch the news together every day. 
10 minutes total.
Flashes of tragedy broken up with fluffy current events.

I focus on the tragic, moved and hurting;
I want to be in every place at once, doing every thing at once.

But in my small corner with these 29 minds, we discuss sandwiches vs. hot dogs,
instead of plane crashes
and Myanmar.

And I'm glad that they have intuitively chosen
the correct things for 13-year-olds to worry about.
