Would you do a dangerous job?

Have you seen the amazing video of the two reporters who were being held prisoner in North Korea? Former President Bill Clinton went to North Korea and negotiated their release.

All this got me to thinking: Would I do a dangerous job, like being a journalist in a place like North Korea, where people don't have many rights and you can be arrested and sentenced to 12 years of hard labor?

Other jobs have risks, too, like being a police officer, firefighter, soldier in the military, or even someone who works with animals at the zoo. Being in The Pink Locker Society sometimes feels a little dangerous - but not that dangerous! I like to think that I could be really brave someday - to take risks because the job I'm doing is really important.

What about you - can you see yourself doing a dangerous job?

I don't think so, only if we were poor and I needed to. But I'm just glad those women are home with their families.

I think I might do a dangerous job, because if you don't take risks in life, you won't have any fun!!!!!!!! But that's just my opinion.
