Tonight I was lucky enough to listen to a guest speaker who was the producer and screenwriter for the hit HBO series, The Wire. Ed Burns worked in both law enforcement and within the education system.
Burns has seen a lot and been through a lot throughout his life. He spoke about our society and the pros and cons within it. He touched on the laws of America, the impact of technology, and what we can do as citizens.
Burns spoke about technology in a very interesting manor. He said that technology can be both good and bad, especially in my generation. He believes that the majority of youth use technology incorrectly. Maybe he’s right. Maybe we aren’t using media to change our society for the better.
Burns brought up a lot 0f topics that make me think about what I contribute to society. Listening to Burns was a great experience and it was amazing to be able to hear his perspective!
That is one of the things I love about McDaniel…they have amazing guest speakers and lectures!
