On We Go… By: Ashwin S.

Finally the end of 2011 is near. Over this year there have been many changes for good and for bad. One of the things that is the most memorable to me is the Arab Spring. The Arab Spring is a nickname for the number of revolutions in the Middle East. This stands out to me because it shows how regular people can stand up and change the place they live in. I think that the revolution that stands out the most to me is the one in Libya. In the end you have to realize, no matter how much power you wield, the people below you can always take it away. I think Gaddafi (former dictator of Libya) didn’t realize that until right before his death. After Gaddafi’s death, I think that many dictators now realize that they have to be more careful. Another important thing that happened is the death of Osama Bin Laden. He was an evil man and do you know what happens to evil men? They get killed just like he did. Al-Qaeda is now very much weakened which is good because they are a terrorist society, and hopefully this will get a message through the thick heads of some people. If you are bad, you will face the consequences.

I’m also looking forward to 2012. The thing that’s really standing out about 2012 is the supposed Apocalypse the Mayans predicted. Hopefully not too many people will get worried and take drastic measures (commit suicide, spend all of their money) since I sincerely doubt that the Apocalypse will happen but you never know. Till then, on we go…

  1. 2012 is underway, and I am looking for a great year. You talk about bad people who died in your post. Yesterday a great man, Joe Paterno died of spreading lung cancer. He was 85. If you did not know Joe Paterno, is the winningest college football coach in history, and the school he coached, Penn State is involved in a huge scandal involving him. He will never know what happens.
