I am an US Army veteran that wants to see change in the United States. We have to think about our future generations and the world as a whole. That includes race relations, nutrition, education, and many different facets of life that people constantly complain about not learning in high school.
Critical thinking is one of the most important skills that I have learned and have been trained into using for the entirety of my post-pubescent life. Whether it is thinking about philosophical issues or whether it is about how to approach an obstacle at work or school. Taking time to think through a concept is extremely valuable.
