Week 5: Discussion Prompt
We often have different ideas or understandings about similar terms or words. Words are very powerful and the use of them shapes the way we see the world and live our lives daily. The two articles that we will be reading this week explore this idea of words and meaning as applied to two very different subjects that are both heavy and impactful subjects. Read both of these articles in either your textbook or by clicking the following links:
The Definition of Terrorism by Brian Whitaker
Conscientious Objection in Medicine: A Moral Dilemma by Ishmeal Bradley
After you have read both articles choose only one to complete the following prompt for your Week 5 posting.
As you read, look for your Golden Line: A Golden Line is an important quote from the text that you have a lot to say about. Share that one line and explain why you chose it and what meaning you make with the line.
