Drunk Driving is a concerning problem in society, it has led to many injuries and deaths. All of this could be avoided if people knew what they were doing to their bodies and the damage that they could possibly
I am interested with your post “ The Risk we Run with Uneducated Teenagers” because I agree with your ideas that teenagers have always been drinking in high school, however when someone is told not to do something they will want to do it more which may be why people under 21 have been drinking in large amounts.

I am intrigued by your post, “Make America Greater,” because it tells people what they need to hear which is that even though people including me do not prefer Donald Trump we need to accept it because we can not change the outcome the election because Trump was the one chosen by the electoral college.
I agree with your opinion on Euthanasia, because it is a topic that is not discussed enough and people need to start talking about it more. Also many people have lives which they are suffering through they should not have to endure so much pain if they don’t have to.
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.
