Are Adults Always Right?
Are adults always right? The question that I would love to prove wrong, but after reading my journal entries I have to come to a conclusion. Since adults do have experience they make acceptable decisions, but being an adult doesn’t always mean that you know everything. Therefore, there are many reasons why this question could go between yes and/or no. In many entries I had adults making a decision that really was up to their own discretion. For example, in entries 11, 12, 13, and 17, I wrote about songs that famous artists have produced.

He is not only risking his life but others as well, which can result in a major controversy between to people. When adults make the wrong decision for a group of people, the turnout can lead to many possibilities that wont be acceptable. After reviewing all of my entries and...
