What if we all Payed Attention?
By Mirlana O’Keefe of Northwest Career and Technical Academy
I created this PSA because I’ve been noticing that people have not been paying attention. Either that, or they do not put their full attention to whatever they are doing or whoever they are talking to. If society could just pay more attention, there could be less consequences (fighting & dozing off in class) and more benefits (happiness and good grades). Maybe things could be better if we did put our full attention towards something.
