Today, the United States is arguably the top superpower in the world. For much of its history, including today, our nation acted as a world policy maker and influencer, monitoring the situation in every corner o
Being a superpower, the US is the leader in policymaking for our world. As a result, our nation have been involved in so many world affairs, like in Syria, Iraq, global economy, terrorism, and more. However,
My topic is about how America became the superpower it is today. I’m interested because I wonder how our nation was able to surpass many other countries and rank so high as a superpower. I know that America on
I read one of Coretta Scott King’s anti-death penalty articles and she presents very similar ideas as you do. I recommend you read it. Rather than try to kill killers, we should try to reform them back into society, a solution that’s more moral and doesn’t violate the right to life. The death penalty goes back all the way to the ancient times and…[Read more]
We definitely need to monitor what comes in and out of our borders because we don’t know which outsiders are coming in as threats. Europe, particularly in France, is facing the problem of terrorist attacks because of letting any outsiders travel freely without close monitoring.
Broken families can really affect a child negatively. When there’s a “missing link” in a family it can cause depression and aggression in a child. For example, where there’s a missing father figure, there’s no fatherhood and thus a missing part in a child development.
Experiencing amputation can be a life changing experience. A fake limb is never the same as the original. I hope one day, we can achieve the creation of regeneration for lost limbs, which will be especially useful for many veterans of war.

This doesn’t surprise me at all. Any political campaign is about persuading the population, so candidates would say anything fancy to convince people to vote for them. That doesn’t mean they would actually do it when they get elected. In fact, there is a saying that “talking is cheap”.
Exact minimum wage in the U.S does differ from state to state, but nationally there is a basic median that everyone must follow. Even when minimum wage is higher in one state, that state usually have higher taxes and prices on goods. Raising the minimum wage would disturb the economy, including the need to raise prices.
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.
