Speech is not just someone's written or voiced opinions, but it is also the way that a person tries to express his or her ideas or beliefs using other meanings. Without different beliefs, theories, opinions and controversy, we will never advance as a people. All we would be left to do is think and speak the same, and believe the same beliefs. Our minds will no longer be able to run wild with brilliant, and sometimes controversial thoughts; though even if they did, we wouldn't be able to vocalize any of it.

As time passes, you discover who you are and what goals you want to set for your future through experiences you'll encounter. During high school, I was considering nursing as my chosen path career.
