Something that affects my life, and many others life's is school. School is something that is very, very serious. School is not something that you can save for a later time, or just not go to. School is a mandatory event for everyone in the U.S. Schools give you well needed education, that can be very helpful. If you do not attend a school, and you are in ages 4-16, it is against the law, and the government will give your parents/guardians a ticket or fine. All in all, going to school is a mandatory event that everyone must go to and if they don't, it is illegal.
