Transcript of Citizenship!!!
Jury Duty is something we have to do if you want to be a good citizen. Even though sometimes it can be a waste of time. According to this person its not a waste of time he says being called to jury is actually a good thing in a lot of ways. There are a few good reasons why you might actually enjoy jury duty for example you get mandatory vacation from work, Opportunity to be a responsible citizen and Opportunity to learn about the legal system, you even get paid just to be there. When people go to jury duty they have to sit down for hours and just listen to any case there. you can't be on any electronic devices. If you are hungry or have to use the bathroom you have to wait until they give you a break. It doesn't matter if you like it or not you still have to go or else you get a fine or go to jail.
Stop & Frisk
Stop and frisk that's something no one likes but police do it anyway. Police do it for our safety. Normally police stop those who look suspicious. For example those who sag their pants, smoke drugs in the corner, those who look like their rushing to get somewhere. but most of the people that get stopped are black and latinos they really don't stop and frisk white people. The NYPD’s stop-and-frisk practices raise serious concerns over racial profiling, illegal stops and privacy rights. 9 out of 10 stops and frisk are innocent. If you get stopped and frisk just stay calm if you know you aren't doing anything wrong.
Citizenship is the status of a citizen with rights and duties.
10 aspects of Citizenship
Voting is part of being a good responsible citizen. By voting you are able to give opinions basically have your voice heard. You will have your voice in the democratic process. Since 2007 till now the amount of voter are decreasing. Every year the amount of voters are dropping. Some people say that voting isn't necessary, voting doesn't matter to them. You hear people saying they are just one person one person doesn't make a difference. Some times its true for example some people say "We live in neither a democracy nor a republic, and therefore your vote doesn't make a difference. Well its up to you if you want to vote or not. We are free to give our opinions. Remember voting is every November.
Recycle Recycle Recycle
By recycling you can be a good citizen. Recycling is something everyone should do it helps the environment stay clean. We can breathe clean air. Instead of throwing your garbage in the streets find a trash can. For each thing we throw away and for each thing that we have but don't use, more of this country's and this planet's natural resources must be used. Recycling is a citizenship issue. Reducing the waste that must be buried, and allowing our resources to be reused benefits all of us. It takes extra time to separate our garbage, and that is exactly what good citizenship is. So people start taking time and effort to do something good for our community.
Upstanders are people who stand up for what they think is right. To be a good citizen people shoud give their opinions and have discussions on them. A lot of people have lots to say but they won't let what they feel out. No one should be a bystander which is a “wallflower”someone that stands off to the side and does nothing. Upstanders are dedicated and passionate about inspiring action that leads to positive changes. Upstanders goals are to open minds to new ideas, introduce people to endless possibilities and help them. Upstander transforms a bystander into an upstander. Everyone should become a upstander speak thier mind. Become this person "someone who does anything to make a positive change anywhere."
Serving the military
Boys you guys are going into a draft. We need soldiers but drafting shouldn't be manditory, it should be something you can volunteer to do. Alot of young men want to be in a war and they aren't chose to go but those who don't want are the first ones to leave.
Reading the Newspaper
By Reading a newspaper you are being a good citizens. You are getting informed on whats going on around you. Your up to date with the problems around the world. If you don't have time to watch the news on T.V you can just go and buy a news paper. It keeps you inform with whats going on with the government. There's many people that don't read the newspaper or watch the new and they don't know whats going on in their community. Some people might think that reading a newspaper is boring that its not important but actually Newspapers educate readers on current events also people who read the newspaper are well aware of global and local issues. Without newspapers, many government agencies would not have "watchdogs" to keep track of their actions. This is why many communist nations control the press and media. people should read a newspaper everyday and recycle it.
