Homeschooler dumps boring newspapers

Abigail Seroogy

My name is Abigail Seroogy. I’m in the 12th grade and I’m homeschooled.

The stigma that parents take their kids out of school (in my case a Christian school) because they are mentally slow seems to have latched on to homeschooling, I also have a shy/quiet personality, so people assume I don’t talk much because I’m stupid.

But it is kind of fun to see their reaction when they realize that I’m a fast learner and that I have interests in: history, politics, the Middle East, reading, wars, geography, science, the Bible and creation. I’m glad I can stay home and learn what I know is important.

From what I have heard at the place where I work, the public school teens’ obsessive interests seem to be: sports, fashion, cars, cell phones, boy/girlfriends and other pointless subjects. I can’t believe how inept and irresponsible these people can get. I feel sorry for them because they have parents with bad priorities.

My dad introduced me to WorldNetDaily in January 2008 because our local newspaper that I had been reading happens to be liberal and boring. I love WorldNetDaily, and it is huge part of my learning material. I have also ordered books and Whistleblower magazines from the website. I have always loved reading and can go hours on end without noticing the time. And I find your website way more educational than anything on TV including the history and military channels. I have learned more on WorldNetDaily in the past year than I ever could have doing my usually schoolbooks. I also like to listen to Michael Savage and various Christian talk programs. A few months ago, I found a children’s history book at the school supplies store that would not even say that Yasser Arafat was evil. I appreciate the fact that this website is not afraid to tell the truth.

Thank you,
