Hello. I must first wish you all a happy New Year. I live in Azé, which is about 30 miles from Angers. There are 3500 people living there. It is a nice village and it's got lots to offer. There are lots of shops and restaurants. There are many sports clubs and associations as well. There is a small lake, a viaduct and a theatre. During my holidays, I had a lot of dinners over Christmas and I celebrated the New Year with a big party!!!! Bye.

During the holidays, I didn’t go anywhere; I stayed at home. I played football and basketball. I did some cooking and gardening. I helped my parents and my neighbors with their work. I did my homework and learned my lessons. I planted some chili seeds. I played videogames and watched a couple of films. I washed bottles to use for cider. I did some painting in my house and I cleaned my room. I watched TV and I was shocked by the earthquake in Japan.

The film ‘Bowling for Columbine’ is by Michael Moore, a very famous film director. The director of the documentary illustrates to his viewers that guns should be banned especially among young people. Michael Moore visits areas where shootings occurred (Columbine and Flint), and investigating these incidents. He meets personalities like Marilyn Manson and Charlton Heston (a famous Hollywood actor), and conducts interviews with students at Columbine High School where the shootings occurred, all of which he uses to demonstrate to viewers that gun ownership is dangerous, and it should, therefore, be banned.
I think guns should be banned because guns equate to a lot of victims.
I also learned that each American is another fellow American’s greatest terror.
