One Student's Attempt to Curtail Profanity

Today's episode of CNN Student News has a good story about one high school student's attempt to get his classmates to curtail their use of profanity. McKay Hatch started the No Cussing Club at his high school. Now the club has grown to include more than 30,000 members across the world. In the video (embedded below) McKay Hatch talks about when his friends went to middle school they all thought that they had to cuss in order to be cool. McKay's statement raises a good discussion question for students, "why do teenagers think that cussing is necessary or cool?"
