Profound Questions

by Mr. Sheehy

It seems to me the most profound questions sound innocent when initially uttered. “What happens when we die?” sounds like the innocent question of a child, but it is so profound and far reaching that as a teacher in public schools, I cannot discuss it sincerely with my students for fear of litigation.

Yesterday as one of my juniors fired up her computer I heard her say, “Where is the Internet?” Sure, she may have simply been looking for her Explorer icon, but wouldn’t this be a fun question to ask at the beginning of a class about using the web? Go ahead, kids, try to answer that question in less than a paragraph . . . Where is the Internet?
