I think that its really interesting that we all have our own beliefs and that those beliefs can shape how we react to different situations. It is important to know what we believe because when we are adults and we have to make big decisions in our life like who should we vote for president and what kind of job we want it helps if we don’t have to rely on our parents opinions and we have our own. Our beliefs are formed by what rules we were given and small children. In the past people have made it known what their beliefs are by going and doing protest and getting word around about what they believe. If we didn’t have our own opinions then we would not be able to make simple life decisions like what kind of ice cream you like or what sport or hobby you enjoy.
