(Holiday Themed) Broaden Your Thinking- The Values of Education and Glamorization in Stories!

Hello! OK, here's my Broaden My Understanding (Originally known as)! Thinking! 
BY the way, Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, Happy New Years, Happy-Santa-Coming! 
Statement to bind these two ideas: "The values of education can impact ones understanding, reaction, knowledge of events/situations/topics within a story, where multiple stories make up a whole." 

Snapshot: "Racism and Judgement". I will attempt to connect two seemingly connected topics but actually isn't by all means connected! My question: What are the values of education system? With @Sophie Holland (LFAS)'s: Why do authors of fiction glamorize unpleasant or traumatic events?
(Latest post: http://www.pa-mojabutterfly.co...-or-traumatic-events

Okay. Let's start...... 

With nothing. ------FOR NOW, READ ON 
>>Hmm. Let's touch on both includes the use of books! Both include the knowledge needed to comprehend the texts that is read in regardless of languages! 
>>Now.. for some reason I thought about racism and judgement people give, that spread negativity around! BUT how do we prevent, stop and cease such things, Stereotyping things basically. 

====Well, this is partly why Butterfly Effect is created, to allow us to "Broaden" our understanding with the world and break down stereotypes. Allowing us connecting fellows in Kenya, USA, Canada (as of right now) allowing us to learn many things and many point of views. 

So i thought, perhaps how values in education can change that, as well as how glamorizing events may just be promoting such a thing. 

>>Glamorizing events would definitely put some misconceptions on many things (including very serious things even though it may not be in the intention of author) but take a very very popular book and it may just change many people's POV on something that may not be entirely true. The value in education can allow people to learn what is truly out there, breaking about the real meaning, ideas, etc on SAID X topic. 

>>Now this sounds like disconnected ideas and they are not connected at all! Right? They kind of fight against each other as I have put it... 

But there is a relation, 

"The values of education can impact ones understanding, reaction, knowledge of events/situations/topics within a story, where multiple stories make up a whole." 

Or, 

BY initiating the values in education to allow people identify glamorized events in a book! 

Of course, from what I just said, this has an enormous societal impact. 

That is all! What do you think? 
Hope you liked the Special Limited Christmas Theme!

Hi Jim! 

 I’m flattered you chose my project! This was really interesting to read. I like your points about misconceptions being a common theme between the two. Books can either give us false information or shed light on something real that we don’t talk about. Education is linked to this in a sense that we should be educated about whether what we’re reading or watching is true or not. 

 Also, I like how you connected the subjects on different levels as well, bringing up racism and judgement and breaking down stereotypes. It was an interesting approach to linking our projects together!
