  • Dear Rene:

    I am surprised by your post, “Tensions Rising between Russia and Ukraine,” because it is surprising how after Russia tries to have a relationship with Ukraine they still want to attack them. It’s also surprising how there were some deaths and how Russia sent 100,000 troops to the border.

    Scientists have recently found a new species of prehistoric flowers. These flowers were preserved in amber, the same thing that was used in the movie Jurassic Park. With these flowers scientists have been able to see how plants have...

      I am impressed by your post, “Discovery of Prehistory Flowers” because it is amazing that amber can preserve something for so long. Amber is a unique material and is able to encase nearly anything in it.

      One sentence you wrote that stood out to me is “These flowers were preserved in amber, the same thing that was used in the movie Jurassic Park.” I think it is cool that you compared it to Jurassic Park.

      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because learning about animals and plants is always interesting. Especially if it is from the prehistoric age.

  • Dear Luis:

    I am not very happy with your post, “Booster Approved for Ages 12-15,” because you didn’t really say a lot. I would’ve liked to hear more about this and what you thought about it.

    • Dear Adrian,

      Your post, “The Problem of Overdose” has caught my attention because overdose in drugs and deaths from that is a big problem in America. Overdose is a dangerous addiction to drugs and people should be more aware of it. There is currently a War against Drugs from the Federal government and hopefully they are making progress.

      One sentence that stands out is that “People should be more aware of where they are getting their medication from and if it’s the correct one. It’s not right to be taking medication given from other people because you don’t know what it can include and what it can do to you.” I agree to this because you don’t want to receive drugs from an unknown source unless you’re doing something illegal. Go to a local pharmacy for prescription pills or a doctor to take care of the overdose.

      Thanks for this post, it is good to bring attention to this issue since this has been going on since the 70’s. This is a good way to take care of yourself by acknowledging the dangers of overdosing from drugs.
