In our modern issue — about guns and murders; is a somewhat-considerably a serious matter of our community. It is an issue in which we can’t ignore because people use guns for violence and violence is an act o
I am fascinated with your post “ Gun control-Movement “ because this something i was writing about myself. I also was fascinated because it was something i could relate too in my everyday life considering the neighborhood i come from in the bronx. Another reason why i was fascinated is because of the title, it was a title that got my attention and made me want to read what you wrote which turned out to be a video which is even better ; because it helped me get a better understanding of the situation.
One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is “ Guns brings chaos and force among the weak. Villains usually use these guns as an opportunity for their greed and desires “. i think this is because this a quote i can relate too because i know people in my life that use guns and weapons to get their way in life no matter the circumstances. Also this quote really spoke out to me as a person that has seen and been through these kinds of problems.
Another sentence that i liked was “guns are affecting our humanity which creates an insecure social lives of many citizens.” This stood out for me because everyone is being affected by gun violence in some sort of way. Some people are afraid to travel to certain place because they’re afraid of getting shot for being in the wrong place which nobody should have to go through.
Your post “ Gun control-movement “ reminds me of something that happened to me. One time i had a friend who sold drugs and he was only 16 years old, which to me is already a bad thing. One time a guy he sold drugs to regularly started arguing with him and instead of using hands he used his gun and shot the guy and now he’s facing a murder charge and is probably going to jail for life.
Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because you have some very good points based on this topic. Also from your point of view i can tell you really care and want to make a difference on all the gun violence that’s happening everywhere.
Gun control has been an ever increasing problem in the United States of America since the beginning of 2018. It is increasingly worrying that school shootings have almost become weekly, as no change has been introduced or suggested.
This is a youth-powered publishing platform that was started in 2003 by a group of teachers from local sites of the National Writing Project.
We merged several earlier blogging projects. We have found that there are many advantages to bringing students together in one site that lives beyond any particular class. It’s easier for individual students to read and write about their own passions, to connect with other students, comment on each other’s work, and create multimedia posts for each other. Further, it’s been exciting for us to pool our knowledge about curriculum, connected learning, and digital literacies.
There are over 8,000 posts and over 13,000 comments by young people on the site on topics as diverse as the American Dream, Shakespeare, and sports as well as original poems and stories.
Youth Voices is a platform for youth to write about their interests, both in school and outside of school: what they are reading, what their hobbies or future careers might be, what they enjoy in their spare time. Like all of us, students follow our national leadership and form opinions. They are also welcome to write about those topics as well.
Youth Voices is fully non-partisan and welcomes youth of all types, from all regions, and with all viewpoints. Educators support youth in writing and thoughtfully responding to each other through the use of commenting guides, using tags to show common interests, playlists to support self-guided inquiry; opinions expressed by writers are their own.
If being part of such a community makes sense to you, we invite you to join us. We welcome all youth and any teacher interested in having students publish online and participate in the give and take of a social network like Youth Voices.
