"My knee healed but my mind never did. I never played football again and didn't play a sport again until almost sixth grade. Even though my life changed in huge ways and it hurt and it wasn't always fun I am grateful it happened. I believe I became a better and more well rounded person because of it. Everything has a reason and even though when I was nine I may not of seen these reasons looking back now I clearly do. I gained friends, abilities, trust and love from this. Life to me is simple, you can either let something bad in your life beat you or you can beat something bad in your life, I beat that bad thing and came out stronger."
For my Own Design I chose to talk a little bit more about honey bees. Going off of what we learned in Fresh we know that the balance of nature is a hard thing to find. We as humans always wants what is fast, easy, and cheep. This isn't always a bad thing but when we do this something almost all the times suffers. Now some of the larger issues like dumping stuff into rivers or making GMO's are taken into account but what about the little things? Honey bees are one of the most important things on this planet and how much do you know about them? You probably know they make honey that you eat and that they sting you. But those two things are probably the least two important things about a honey bee. Honey bees pollinate hundreds of plants that produce food we eat. They produce 1/3 of every meal you eat in one way or another. The problem today is that bee keepers are finding that over 70% of there bees die a year. A leading cause to this is because of CCD or Colony Collapse Disorder. Scientist have not found one true cause of this yet but are looking everyday. Some blame the amount of pesticides used on plants and others blame the monocultures farmers have created. Either one are very pressing issues and we should be more careful because without honey bees the world would truly be hurt. Here are some links I encourage you to look at that explain even more the issues and problems with honey bees.
