Recently, there was a terrible shooting incident near my hometown in America.
More than 30 people were shot and killed at a University.
I was very sad to hear about this incident.
America has a big problem with guns.
It is very easy to get a gun in America.
Many pistols and rifles cost between 300 and 1000 dollars.
In America, in most states, you can buy a gun if:
You are over 21.
You have never commited a crime.
You don't have a mental illness.
The gun shops have an instant background check system to check the criminal and mental history of customers.
Many of my friends and family members have guns.
They just went to a gun or hunting shop, chose a gun, showed their identification, paid their money and took their new guns home!!
It is not necessary to have a special license or take any gun safety classes!
What do think about Americas gun laws?
Have you ever touched a real gun?
mental illness: 精神病
commited a crime: 犯罪を起こした
background check: 素性 check
|High School Graduation
In America, the school year begins in September and ends in June.
High school seniors graduate a little earlier, in mid-May.
My high school graduation was very exciting and fun!
About 2 weeks before the graduation ceremony, we had our school dance for graduating seniors called “The Senior Prom.”
The dance was fun but we were all a little sad to have our last dance event together.
The graduation ceremony was on the auditorium stage.
All graduating students wore a cap and gown.
Our relatives cheered loudly when we received our diplomas on the stage.
Later, outside, we yelled, “Ready, set, go!” and we threw our caps in there air!
After the ceremony, the graduates had our last celebration.
We enjoyed a night cruise on the bay near our school.
Did you enjoy your high school graduation?
What did you do to celebrate your graduation?
Ready, set, go!: せーの！
