    Coralie, your poem was so touching. You painted a picture and internalized it for every human being. It takes serious courage to write poetry and I am very impressed. I could feel the words you were speaking and was able to tell there was a story behind them. Keep up the great work.

  • Angelica, I found your topic so interesting! Walt Disney was so inspirational for so many people, but it is easy for use to glamorize someone who seems to have anything. Do you think his personal issues affected the dark themes or early Disney movies? Here is a link you might like,…Read More

    Serial Killers vs Mass Murderers

    • This is very interesting. Why do you think that society glorifies serial killers and not mass murderers too? Why do you think we glorify either of these at all? I feel like all of the recent documentaries are contributing majorly to the glorification, however, I also see the value in watching them. I think they can teach us a lot, but unfortunately I think they shine a brighter light on these horrible crimes.

    • I really like this as it really brings up something that bugs me when people talk about how these people have no fame as there is no reason for it. People like this are idolized because they can get away with it and that they tend to get the girl in the process of doing so.
      Specifically, there is a youtube video called serial killers aren’t sexy, which really annoyed me. Ted Bundy was able to do what he did because he was an all-American hottie (idk what else to call it.) He was charming, which is what I think people tend to idolize about these people, because they tend to be the most extreme cases of being charming and attractive because they were so charming and so attractive that they got away with it, not the crimes that they did. No one really idolizes someone like John Wayne Gacy because there isn’t much to idolize there.

    • Anna, This is one of my favorite things to read about I am obsessed with crime stories and I really thought I knew about all this but reading this I had no idea. I really did not know the difference between the two, I thought that mass murders were just someone that killed a bunch of people. Adding onto what Miriam said do you think that the movies and shows about murders draws too much attention and actually makes the problem of serial killers and mass murders worse?

    Anna commented on the post, STOP THE BULLYING

    Jose, I thought you did a great job of bringing attention to bullying, an issue that is well known, but few people do anything about it. I also thought it was interesting how you had a call to action. I agree that teachers, parents, and peers need to look out for bullying. Maybe purpose more options to contradict and prevent bullying. Here is an…Read More

  • Amani, I thought your paper flowed very well and helped the reader understand the source you referred to. I found Chomsky’s Theory of Language Acquisition incredibly intriguing. I think it is very important to further research this topic for your paper. Similarly, I think it is great that you are discussing bilingual education. Knowing multiple…Read More
