A lot of students I meet ask me why I like being on CNN Student News. The answer: Our audience is awesome. Every member of our staff enjoys your enthusiasm, attention, interest in current events, and [especially] your blog responses. Oh, and your sense of humor (not to mention your patience with mine) really goes a long way too.
It is truly a privilege for me to appear on your TV, MP3 player or classroom screen each school day, telling you what's going on in the world. It's one of the many blessings I'm thankful for this Christmas. And whatever you celebrate, all of us at CNN Student News wish you a merry and bright holiday season.
Please be sure to tell us what you're up to while you're off! Be safe, and God bless.
