    Hi Alysa,
    I like your post because you bring attention to the income gap we have in this world. You include good information and ways to reduce the gap. Here is a link to an article about more ways to reduce it. https://belonging.berkeley.edu/six-policies-reduce-economic-inequality. I very much agree that income inequality is a big issue in the…Read More

  • Hi Jimenia,
    I really like your post because it brings awareness to the air pollution in Oakland. You included good facts and links. This post inspired me to write my own post about the air pollution in Salt Lake City. Both places have bad air pollution as well as the rest of the world. Here is a link to a page about SLC’s air pollution just if…Read More

    • Hello Audrey,
      Thank you for opening up this important conversation, I really enjoyed reading your post. I am really scared to see the outcomes of this problem. Especially when living in our valley when we see these problems at their worst. I found a source that outlines big issues and effects this might have on us in the future that I think you might be interested in. https://www.renewableresourcescoalition.org/pollution-causes-effects/
      Thank you,
      Lola

    • This is a very big problem that people don’t care enough about. Everyone assumes that what they do to help won’t make a difference, but if everyone in Salt Lake changed their habits, even a little bit, we can make a cleaner and healthier planet, like you said. We need to start small.

  • Hi Laya,
    I like your post because it explains the true meaning of the love we have for our family. The “This is Not The End” book you reference sounds interesting and I may want to read it. The way you describe what you learn helps me see what I learned. Something sad is that we have to experience losing everything to truly understand our love we…Read More

  • Hi Sydney,
    I like your post because it relates to us since we do wear uniforms everyday to school. I had not really thought about them past not being able to express ourselves and that we don’t have the stress of picking outfits each morning so it was interesting to read other pros and cons. Here is a link to a study on school uniforms conducted…Read More
