finding power for my house
getting an education for my family members Problems Similarities:
Going through the same issue
Lack of food results in death
Power provides heat, shelter, and assurance Problem:
Having Access To Education, Food, and Power in third world countries. Differences:
Real life situations
Poverty is the main reason
Thousands, even millions die from this issue
Government selfishness What are the differences? Free The Children is a fundraiser organization the helps children and families in third world countries, where there is little access to food, education, and power. Free the Children 1. My Simulated Experience The Civic Mirror Game I was unsuccessful in achieving my goals due to:
Lack of powering hexes
People refusing to trade
Fatal emergency My Civic Experience TheValues I had when coming into the civic mirror was:
Keeping Family alive

The coming out of the civic mirror game I accomplished most of the Values I set out for. Connection to Reality What I Learned from the civic mirror game was:
Aware what it takes to be an active citizen.
How the Government work with imputing community decisions.
The importance of town hall meeting and house of commons
What happens in the court house involving the jury member and court representatives In affecting the nations as a whole this problem could decrease your well being point immensely and affect the length of your family members life. Organization Lessons Learned My opinion on what would make better communitiy is helping each other out when faced with community issues, help find jobs for others in community, and basically being an active citizen to better your community. Insight I learned the problems I faced was experienced by others in the civic mirror game and was fixed when brought up in town hall meetings. Participation in this simulation has helped me learn:
How a law is passed
How punishments are determined for criminals

Many people had similar problems
Playing this game isn't easy if people won't trade
When prices are high, it's difficult for everyone This issue is still currently occurring and has not been resolved. Most people who suffer this is really due to the government of their country, or simply out of bad luck. The main goals of this organization is:
To help families get education, so they can make a life for themselves.
