In the ted talk " A prosecutor's vision for a better justice system" by Adam Foss he goes into detail about how people can find a better way to be a judge. Foss discussed that teenagers have a high percentage of committing a crime, and getting away with it. Foss talks about how the teenager does not really have a voice to speak up for them either. He also talks about how another huge factor that comes into play is the race card. Judges are more likely to have a different outcome on the situation or a different though process if the person on trial is either black or brown. Also how kids who live in poverty are more likely to co mite a crime like stealing something. This is very unfortunate because it takes away from their education and what they can become in the future.

My reflection towards this Ted Talk is that I have a lot of mixed emotions towards it. I strongly disagree with her on the part that we do not know what love is when we first find someone. The reason is because during that time in your life you feel very close to that person and you want show your affection towards them. You should not look back at something in the future and regret it because you didn't know what you were doing. The bottom line is that everything happens for a reason but you can change the out come from the beginning.

What I learned from this Ted Talk, was that it is better to be content and grateful for with what we have. Because if we have more than one option we tend to over think things . Which causes us to end up with something we are not happy with. We make decisions that put us in a worse place than before if we had never even made the decision.

Usually when people think about what makes them happy the first thing that might come up to mind are materialistic things. To me happiness is being surrounded by good people who never let you down and are always their for you. For example, family and friends if you surround yourself with good friends who understand you and not the ones who have a bad influence. Sure things like sports and video games make me happy but those are just in that moment, family and friends will always be there right by your side. It is about the good memories you create with each other. So when you look back at them in the future together their will be nothing but pure laughter and joy in their hearts. It is very important to have happiness because life is to short to constantly be worried about the things that go on in our lives. Instead we could be using to make memories for ourselves. There really is no secret to finding happiness. Money cant buy happiness all the things that you buy are just materialistic and you cant hold on to them for ever. On the other hand things like friends and good memories you could. The way I think of it is if you have something that you are really passionate about then you should keep doing it for the rest of your life if it makes you happy. I feel as if many people are unhappy because the types of people they associate themselves with. If they have a negative impact on there life and they still talk to them then they are bound to be unhappy.
