What Other African Country Would Rochelle Chambers Like to Visit?

Since I have had the chance to travel to South Africa another African country that I would also like to visit would be Kenya because our first African American President is from there. Also I would love to visit there because the city is beautiful and my friend’s parents who is from there always tell me that it’s beautiful and the people are friendly.

This Year Bad Winter Season by Rochelle Chambers

Yes, I think global warming played a role with having a very bad winter this year.
Global warming shifts the weather patterns causing colder winters and more
snow. I personally think to help keep the planet clean and green we should
recycle more to reduce the amount of trash, watch less television, air dry our
clothes, use the stove instead of the microwave and do not drive often. When
you do these things, you are making a big difference by causing less greenhouse
gas to be dispensed in the air.

My personal goal, that I would like to do more of to keep the Earth clean and green is to not use too much of electricity and cut down on using the microwave.

Rochelle Chambers on The Public Outcry for Gun Control

   Yes, I think there needs to be better gun control laws because often on the news there are more people being killed as a result of gun violence than of other causes. And as a citizen, what I can do to help this issue is going to a community center in the area and hold town hall meetings discussing the amount of people being killed. I would also go to local police stations to have them investigate illegal guns being sold. With this being done, illegal gun owners would change their minds. As a result less people would be killed.

 In conclusion, I do believe it is possible to have better gun control laws, it just take one to speak out.

Given the Revolution in Egypt, How Does Rochelle Chambers Feel About Living in a Democracy?

     I think it is important to live in a democratic country because people enjoy a great deal of freedom. In a democracy we are able to cast votes and elect our representatives while in a dictatorship there is something called centralization of power which rests in the hands of one individual. The people are not able to have a say in matters of the government.

This Local Issue Needs Attention by Rochelle Chambers

The local issue that I care most about in my community is when I see boys my age with their pants below their waist.

This originated from prisoners because they were not allowed to wear belts in jail which caused their pants drops. Then when prisoners term are done in jail they are so used to hanging their pants that others think it’s a  style and of course copy this wear. Watching these boys with their pants below their waist is disturbing because you can see theirs underwear and everything. To eradicate this problem I think that it should be a law that all genders should walk with their pant on their waist. And anybody who’s walking with their pants below their waist will pay a fine of $500.

Joshua’s Nickelodeon HALO Award by Rochelle Chambers

Halo Award Show

When I watched the Halo Awards last Friday on Teen Nick there were four children that were appreciated for the work they do in their communities. When I saw this, it inspired me that many children from around the world are helping in many ways and being appreciated for everything. Also seeing the journey for Change ambassador, Joshua Hall, being one of them, it inspired me more that if I work hard enough I can also be an Halo to the world.

  Another reason how Ambassador Joshua inspired me is because he showed that children can take part and not wait until “we grow up”. As Congressman Elijah Cummings said “We are not the future: We are the NOW”. So that’s why we should take part now and not wait until it’s too late, because this experience was a chance in a lifetime.

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

Americans is indeed one of the richest nations in the world, however so many people in our country are suffering economically.
   
I think so many people in our country are suffering economically because of our government unfairness to the less fortunate families. The government offer benefits to rich families lowering taxes and giving them waivers. The government did this hoping that these fortunate people will create smaller businesses to help out low income families; unfortunately they failed to do so. I think what our government needs to do about this is to give equal to all or pass a law that all families should benefit equally to fortunate and less fortunate. Also I think the government should create more job opportunities so more people can be able to pay their taxes. For example if a student leaves from college and their dream is to open up a business, they should have that opportunity to do that.
