  5. Journal #9 -“Behind the Headlines” – Choices: A dilemma – In this short story Lakshmi reflects on the choices she’s made in her life and wonders how her life has turned out this way.  In this moment of reflection, she is faced with a dilemma: to remain the same or to change.  As we get older, we are given more responsibilities and have more power to make choices for ourselves, but we also have to deal with the consequences of our choices.  Consider an important choice or dilemma that you’ve had to face.  Discuss the situation.  What did you do?  How did you choose?  What were the consequences? Do you have any regrets? Explain.
