Juan, Firstly the title is definitely one that catches people's attention. Secondly, I really enjoyed your input on the topic. It is undeniably an issue that arises in modern society. Many of the games that are released receive the mature rating. I don't believe that violent...

Carter, I agree with you. I am a person who needs to listen to music while I do homework. Otherwise I lose interest and struggle focusing. That said I believe the "is music beneficial" argument is subjective, and it varies person to person. It appears you...

Nahum, The statistics you shared in your post a quite shocking. Especially that, "law Enforcement Killed 90 Oakland Residents Since 2000, And 74 Percent Were Black". Racism, while less serious than that of the 1700s, is still a very big issue in society. It is sad to...

Ellie, The Australian fires are a heart breaking thing. I didn't realize just how much they were affecting Australia and even more so how much they were affecting other countries neighboring Australia. The line, "Skyrocketing temperatures and shifting winds makes it impossible to breathe and see not only...

Manuel, The idea of building areas in which skaters can go in Oakland is a great idea. It is not an uncommon thing to ban skateboarders around city areas. People tend to associate skateboards with disrespectful kids who vandalize everything. Even though this stereotype isn't always true,...

Lucky, I can tell that you clearly have an interest in enlisting. I have an uncle in the military, special forces to be exact, and he talks about how the military was the best thing that ever happened to him. Before joining he was in a very bad...

Kaya, I too feel that it is a necessity to get good sleep. We as teenagers should be getting between eight and ten hours of sleep per night according to I believe that reading this article could help broaden your knowledge on the lack of sleep amongst...

Luis, I think that you have some valid ideas. I personally believe that we can test on animals as it benefits our own health in the future. I assume when you say, "I believe it’s human nature to eat meat because we need to be able to get...

AUDREY! The points that are made in this article a very valid. Everybody can agree that school and family, among other things can be stressful. I really like that you support teachers really working to help students with that stress in a goal to help those susceptible to...

Ashton, immediately upon reading your article I became interested in your project. I started to do some research on laminated glass and I found that the glass when broken will hold together rather than shatter. Personally I feel this is beneficial for a building regardless of bird...

Maggie, I really feel as though your article seeks to provide valid information from both sides. Obviously the answer to the mass shooting epidemic is no easy solution, and people will continue to disagree on the matter far into the future. Your article provided views from both...
