I am astonished by your post, “Cosmetic testing,” because nobody talks about the cruel treatment of animals that cosmetic companies are committing.

I am content about your post, “Climate change,” because it shows that climate change is a thing that shouldn’t be avoided, as it currently is. It is so cool that you intend on researching ways the government will be able to change that.

It’s astonishing how it is the 21st century and groups of people are still being discriminated. A popular example of hatred towards a group of people is the Muslim ban, where people from Muslim majority c
Dear Humaira :
I am proud with your article,“Islamophobia: A 12-year old’s take on it.,” because it explains in a nutshell what many people have been trying to point out, and you wrote it in just the correct way for your message to be heard (in my opinion).
One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “It’s astonishing how it is the 21st century and groups of people are still being discriminated.” I think this is important because no matter how much the world progresses, stereotypes about people will always remain.
Another sentence that I reflected upon was: “It’s clear that Islamophobia is still prominent, as media portrays Muslims as terror raising, savages.” This stood out for me because no matter what people may say, no one can deny its truth. When a terrorist is not Muslim, their religion doesn’t seem to matter that much, but when a Muslim is a terrorist, that seems to be the only relevant fact about them. People do not realize that Islam is peaceful, but the image is being ruined by people who take it to a whole other level, becoming extremists, which aren’t good in any religion.
Your article reminds me of something that happened to me. One time I was walking with my best friend and her mother, all of us Muslim, ready for a fun day at the playground. A man walked by and started talking about how bad Muslims were and how they were immigrants and terrorists. I was so upset I turned around to him, but my best friend turned me back around, trying to get that bad experience out of our minds.
Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I feel that you will always speak out about what is right, not giving up for any reason.
What you say is very true today. I agree with your important article, “Islamophobia: A 12-year old’s take on it.”, and people should try to realize that few Muslim people are actually terrorists. Most are hard working, middle class citizens. One sentence you wrote to convince me was when you wrote “Someone was mistaken for a Muslim and was pushed into the train tracks.” This showed me how serious the situation is. People tried to kill someone because of how they looked. I agree with your claim about stopping discrimination because it is affecting the lives of innocent people and children. People should attempt to realize that most Muslims are good people.
I am content about your post “School Stressed,” because I can completely relate to what is happening to you.
One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “it has also made me feel less concentrated on what I need to do and making me worry that I won’t be able to finish certain things and I haven’t been able to get good grades on…[Read more]
This is a youth-powered social network 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.
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.
