I find Ebola worrisome. I'm not terrified, I'm just worried. I think that everyone should prepare, just in case it spreads, and kills a lot of people, but that probably won't happen. We have good health care, good doctors. If anyone you know gets sick with it, or could easily get sick with it, avoid them, but wait for them to develop symptoms before you start freaking out. If Ebola becomes a big thing, and half the doctors leave the hospitals, hopefully you have things at home, like water bottles, canned food, and medicine. If things get to that, it may not be safe to drink from water fountains, or little things such as that. Don't forget, though, that there are other sicknesses other than Ebola that can kill you, and Ebola should not be the only thing worried about or prepared for. The flu kills many people each year, and it is airborne. Worry, but don't panic. This whole thing will most likely fade away, and you will not get Ebola as long as you are careful.

That.... is the most true thing about news.
I'm sorry, I just needed to find something funny to say. Ebola terrifies me. It certaintly doesn't help that ALL the boys in my grade AND some of the eight graders at our school have started this stupid game called "Ebola". Basically, if you touch somebody that has "Ebola", you die. I absoulutley LOATHE this game. It is insulting to the nurses and doctors that are RISKING THEIR LIVES to help cure this disease, it certaintly isn't anything to joke about. It is also insulting to everybody that is having to deal with this terrifying epidemic. Our gym teacher said that she would make anybody else that joked about it write an essay about it, but other than that nobody is doing anything about it. My friends and I want to stop it, but we just don't know why. I really do worry about this. Sometimes I even can't sleep because of it. Everytime I think that it is finally over in the USA, someone else gets it. That wouldn't really affect me too much if it weren't for those STUPID KIDS at school who just think it's some kind of game. IT'S NOT, DAMN IT!

My brother and his friends at school play that same game, or something similar called: "ebola" I absolutely hate that kind of game that makes fun of people risking their life and dying. It's not a freaking game, okay?

THANK YOU. I wish those stupid teachers would DO something about it.

They really should, because it is NOT okay, and definitely NOT funny.

It still makes me nervous. Maybe because I live in New Mexico, so I'm closer, I don't really know, but it could mutate to become airborne, it could be airborne during certain stages... We don't really know for sure because we've never had to worry about it.

Yes. I'm a freaking eight grader and people are like, you have Ebola, I have Ebola, these potato chips have Ebola. It's obnoxious, rude and immature.

I don't know why you worry about it becoming airborne. I mean, no one can predict how it mutates.
