Talk about an important news event that happened recently in your country. Describe the event and explain why it was important.
An important news event that happened recently in my country was actually pretty tragic. An 11-year-old girl was shot in the head at a sleepover ( a party for children in which they stay the night at someone’s house )at a friend’s house in Virginia. And you know this piece of news shocked the whole country and it was really tragic but most importantly it was very important for people to realize that gun violence has become a huge problem in America and that a lot of people, the children and the women and the men of the country are no longer safe in their own homes. So I feel like this piece of news actually was an eye-opener( an experience from which you learn something surprising or new) for the people in America, for them to see that guns and gun violence is real and is very very dangerous for our people so I feel like this was a really important piece of news.
