Completing this dossier was a very interesting process, and while it was difficult at times to keep up with finding an article for each week, it forced me to read up on current events. Something I would not have done if this project was never assigned at the beginning of the semester. All of the articles I used for this project were written in the Gazette and most of the articles I used for my paper came from the world section. This project allowed me to see that while there are many good aspects to the world we live in toady, there is also a large presence of “bad.” While some of my articles discussed a consensus between two or more parties, the most part I found demonstrated some sorts of conflict throughout the world. This has led me to believe that the world has a lot of downsides I had previously not been aware of.

It has also given me a chance to realize that I am interested in what is going on in the world today. I will probably start reading the newspaper more often now that I know there are so many issues both...
