We have to try our best to be the best as possible, and not to be influence of society. I am going to comment my friend or people I know about how society construct violence, so they have knowledge about how avoiding getting the influence of violence. It would be a better world if society would not interfere of violence. Thus, I will try my best to not be violent and to forget about society. Hopefully, the final project will guide to a better answer: “If violence is constructed by society”?
