I'm an American...and I need to know what's going on in the world.

Why I avoided the news before: 1.  if you don't watch or listen to the news it sounds like a foreign language...I felt like I was starting in the middle of so many stories and I didn't know what was happening or why. I just gave up.

BUT...then I found http://blog.theskimm.com/ I get an email sent to me every day. It's short and easy to understand!

Today they release a chart on all the terrorist groups. People like me need a simple breakdown. 

2. everything is sad.

BUT...just cause something is hard doesn't mean I shouldn't read it. How else am I going to learn and pray? Plus, my kids need to be able to ask questions and I should have some answers.

3. There isn't anything I can do about it.

BUT...I'm an American, so I can be informed and I can vote accordingly. I need to know what's going in the world...not just here in America. "The week" helps.
