Given the Recent Situation in Egypt, How Does Brenden Archer Feel About Living in a Democracy?

I think it’s important to live in a democracy because we can do whatever we want not unless its breaking the law. For example if the police want to come into your house to search and they don’t have a warrant you can tell them no. If you live under a dictatorship the police can just break down your door, search through your stuff without your permission.

What Would Brenden Archer Say to President Obama If He Could Speak With Him?

If I had 15 minutes to talk to president Obama about a social problem facing our country or the world I would speak to him about the amount of people living on the streets of America, the homeless. I would ask him to put more efforts in working with organizations such as The Salvation Army that support and provide for the homeless and the needy.

This Local Issue Needs Attention by Brenden Archer

Personally I haven’t seen any problems in my community, but from speaking to friends I have heard that there are shoot outs and people who smoke weed on street corners. My mom also told me that at one time there were a lot of drug dealers and shoot outs at the other end of my block. We don’t have that problem at this end of my block because the block association leaders worked with the police to get rid of the drug dealers. As far as I can see my community doesn’t really have any major problems that need to be fixed.

What’s on Brenden’s Mind Today?

My blog is going to be about the war in Iraq.

I think that the U.S. should come out of the war because people from the U.S. are getting hurt for trying to end somebody else war. For example, Brian Hicks was in the war; he had to leave the army because of a leg injury during the war. Since the American troops entered the war, they went in people’s homes and arrest them and even sometimes kill them.

Why So Many Americans Are Suffering Economically Today – Brenden’s Opinion

I think our people are suffering economically because they wasted their money.  I also think that the government should pay people more at their jobs. I also think that the government should build more homeless shelters.

Washington, DC – Brenden’s Experience

My trip to Washington D.C. was exciting from day 1.When we first got to The Salvation Army Bushwick in Brooklyn, NY I was tired and cold. When we got to DC, I was excited and we got to eat lunch at Capitol Hill. After lunch we met Congresswoman Yvette Clarke. After she spoke to us we went to meet Congressman Elijah Cummings. After that we went to the hotel to have dinner and then after that we went to our rooms. The next day we went for a tour of the Capitol Building. After we had that tour we had a tour of the White House. In the White House we saw the red room, the green room and the blue room.  After the three rooms we saw the State Dining Room. After the White House tour we went to the Bureau of Engraving and Printing. There we saw how money is made and printed. Today we went on a tour of Georgetown University.

Volunteer Abroad or at Home – Brenden’s Idea

I would go back to South Africa Johannesburg again to volunteer for a month. I would go back to help the homeless, feed the poor, and try to get other items. If I was there I would like to go to the richer side of Africa and see how it is different from the poor side.
