My thoughts on being born a leader

Lately I have been thinking about the statement, “A leader is born not made.” Should I really believe that every leader needs to be born into one? Are leaders who are born into that position really better than anyone else just because of that slim chance? I believe that all good leaders need to be made and follow their beliefs. That is how we change the world. Martin Luther King Jr., Abraham Lincoln, George Washington, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and many more revolutionary leaders were definitely not born into their power. They stood up to what they thought was right and changed the world and people’s views of the world to make the world a better place. I think that anyone can be a leader and make a difference in the world if they want to. All you have to do is try.

Spy School Revolution Book Review

Spy School Revolution by Stuart Gibbs is another action-packed book in the best-selling Spy School series. Spy School Revolution tells the story of Ben Ripley and his fellow junior agents at the CIA Academy of Espionage as they work together to defeat a top-secret spy team, the Croatoan, who have been working to destroy the United States of America for centuries. The Croatoan are like evil puppeteers, working to destroy the Nation from behind the scenes.  As the secrets of the Croatoan become unveiled, the team soon discovers that they will have to unite in front of a common enemy, but will friends become liabilities, and who will they be able to trust?

This book has many different settings including stealing George Washington’s carriage in the middle of the night while being pursued by two shooting men from horseback, breaking into Mount Vernon to find a hidden room, racing down the steep part of the Potomac after being shot at by evil agents, and flying a helicopter over the National Mall while being pursued by two planes that could blast you into smithereens, and then jumping out of the helicopter onto the National Museum of Art.
