Outdoors Or TV?

I think that if kids spent their time outside rather than watching TV there would be less kids in gangs and less kids causing crimes. Iíve noticed lately that alot of kids are in gangs and have been burglarizing houses and stores. One reason why I think kids are becoming more violent and committing crimes is because, they sit in front of the stupid TV all day long. They donít spend enough time outdoors, hunting, fishing, surfing, and doing all those fun exciting things.

The outdoors offers so much to do and takes your mind off reality and into the fun world. When you are outdoors you are free as a bird and there arenít too many rules. The one rule I go by is; ďhave fun.Ē When you\'re outdoors you donít have to think about being robbed or hurt by crazy people because, they stay in the city.

If you are outdoors you canít watch TV. That means that there would be fewer kids wanting to join gangs and probably less violence. That would stop allot of killing and stealing in this world if every body went outdoors instead of watching TV.

Just think, what if kids spent their time outside rather than watching TV and learning how to steal and kill. Maybe our world would become a safer place. Instead of watching TV, I spend my time outside. It is allot more fun then learning how to fight and kill each other.
