Was College Worth It?
Many graduates are asking themselves this very question if you have been out of college for a while now and still have not found your first job you might be thinking was college really worth it. 86% of college graduations was unemployed or employed outside of their career choice in 2015, many were working at dollar stores and fast-food places.

The tuition for college education has become extremely high, which means most students must go very deep in debt to get a college education.

What Is On My Mind Today
I really am concerned with the young people’s health today, more young people are dealing with health issues today more than ever. Our society has become so severely stressful over the years, the younger generations are suffering because of this. Sex is on almost every program on television today, no wonder people are so sex crazed. Substance abuse is extremely high, especially for the younger generation. Way too much stress on our young people too early in their lives, this has to have a dramatic effect on them. Mental health issues have out numbered physical health diseases, it is time we help these people anyway we can.
