    • Great insight! Your elaboration on police brutality was well thought and eye-opening.I never really gave much thought unequal status police officers could have in a courtroom.

    • There are so many issues that intersect with your topic–politic/political beliefs, experiences with the police, ideas about the police from childhood/family, race, gender, location/neighborhood, individuals (civilians and officers), etc. Definitely a complex issue and I love how you establish credibility by stating there will be no “one size fits all” solution to creating better relationships. I am excited to read about your solutions!

    • I absolutely agree with your opinion that climate change cannot be ignored and leaders of nations, developing or developed, must be concerned with the consequences of a warming earth. Sadly, I don’t think many people will start to care or devote resources to reversing climate change until it impacts them in “their own backyard.”

    • Hi Addison, I completely agree with you, it makes me happy to see young people seeking action. The internet has given so many people who previously had practically no voice, the opportunity to share their ideas and provoke people and politicians.

    • Your argument is very well put and I agree with it completely. Even now as some politicians back people like Greta Thunberg and Tom Steyer, we have to wait and see if any real changes happen, or if it is once again just talk with no action. You also brought up a good point with the short-sightedness of politicians and humans as a whole. We often ignore results that will come after we are gone, ignoring that it will impact our children and future generations.
