    • Annie,
      I liked that you picked such a controversial topic and used your findings to generate your opinion rather than to make one without thinking it through. I really enjoyed reading about not only your response to the topic but also the responses of many others. Your information was clear and concise and seeing those responses from 100 others all through the easily understandable graph was very helpful. You might be interested in the article https://www.nytimes.com/2018/02/01/opinion/abortion-democrats-compromise.html that talked about how last month our senators voted down the republican bill banning abortions after 20 weeks, making this a very current and real issue. I look forward to hearing more.

    • Annie,
      I am so glad you picked this as your research topic as it’s incredibly important we talk about it. Many people are only able to see their side of this controversy and cannot fathom the opposing viewpoint. I myself am guilty of this. I am a firm believer in women’s reproductive rights and even the thought of not having the option of abortion open to all women makes me a little livid. I am so glad you were able to discuss the reasoning behind both sides without excessive bias and emotion because, from my own observation on this topic, if you get emotional and don’t take into much consideration the other viewpoint, things go south fast. Your reasoning is very solid and well stated and just overall pretty sound. I hope to see where you have gone with the rest of this research paper!

    • Very interesting topic, Annie. This is a very concerning issue in our society today. It is important to be open-minded and see the views of others as equal to our own in order to hold compassion for them as each person is entitled to their own beliefs. With that being said, I deeply believe each individual should have the choice to chose whether or not to have a child. It is important for a mother to be ready to birth a child and be able to support the individual financially as well as emotionally. I was amazed by the way Adams reacted to the Kennedy v. Louisiana Court Case. I thought it was disgusting for someone to argue that “even the product of rape is human, and that the termination of even this situational pregnancy would be murder.” If you would like to read more on this topic, I suggest you look at this article(https://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2018/01/pro-life-pro-science/549308/) for more arguments in favor of pro-life as a counter-argument for your research essay. I look forward to reading more from you in the future.

    • Annie,
      I am also doing my research project about women’s reproductive rights but have taken on a wider lens. I am focusing my research on not just abortion but planned parenthood and all of the different services they provide. I like that you have the different arguments you are using clearly explained. Some of the numbers regarding the amount of children in the foster care system is really saddening, especially because it can take so long for them to even get adopted. I think you have used your sources extremely well and back up your claim with credible info. I cannot wait to read the finished piece and read more about your topic!

    • Annie,
      I agree that technology use is exponentially growing and that it is becoming a big issue. The ever growing pollution problem is even more an issue. Are there cases of other places in the world that are trying to solve these problems like San Fransisco?

    • Annie,
      This is a beautiful post. I love how engaging and positive it is. I think everyone can relate with being self-conscious about one thing or another. It’s not always easy to accept yourself, imperfections and all, and I admire how overcoming that major obstacles in your life led you to realize your beauty. Turned lemons into lemonade! I look forward to seeing what else you write.

    • Annie,
      I loved absolutely everything about this post. You wrote it in such a way where I think every girl, and most likely some boys, can resonate strongly to it. You are so right. Beauty is not on the outside. It should never have been that way in the first place. Society makes us believe that exterior beauty is what matters, but it takes posts like yours to remind us that beauty truly does come from within. Thank you so much for writing to this topic, it is so true.

    • Annie,
      Accepting your body in the midst of all the harsh expectations thrown at women is a never-ending battle. I consider myself to be much stronger than I once was, but I still frequently experiences insecurities. When it comes to your physical wellbeing, what ultimately matters is health. There are very thin girls who are very healthy and much larger girls who are just healthy. There are also thin girls who are extraordinarily unhealthy and large girls who are unhealthy as well. Your body is not always a reflection of your health which is the only thing you should preoccupy yourself with.

    • To Annie, I enjoyed reading your article. I particularly found your comment about how failures can have a greater impact on character in the moment than success. I believe that the impact of success and failure come from expectations. When we do something, we expect it to be successful. We envision that it will be flawless, because that’s what we seek. Especially regarding our own ideas, we push for success with far more determination. This could blind us from the flaws hidden in plain sight, if only we looked a little harder. Failures are so much more critical because they reveal a weakness in our character that we must acknowledge. However, I do believe in the power of success. The effects of success compound on itself. As we succeed, we develop confidence, as well as experience. This confidence can create more opportunities for success. Although success may not have the same emotional impact in the moment as failure, it is still powerful.

    • Dear Annie,

      Your question is a very intriguing one. But it is also subjective and can have a variety of answers. So you ask, ” how it’s possible that these successes…can be powerful enough to overcome or equal them (failures)? It’s good when you fail and you feel utterly terrible about it. That means you cared about it. The next step is not something that can be taught: moving on. For me, in my life, if I don’t like something about myself, I change it. If I can’t change it, I leave it. It’s that simple because I made it that simple, it’s not worth staying up all night tormenting myself, otherwise it will never leave me. This skill is difficult to master, but once you do, it will be a valuable life skill that you will always need. You’re right, failures do feel worse than good successes. But again, it just comes with experience. You learn to focus on the successes more than the failures. It’s not something that people want to hear, but it is the truth. I hope with time you are able to learn this skill.
