    • Abigail,
      This is a really interesting topic that I do not know a lot about. I really like how you cited specific types of civilizations and solar systems. I think there is a lot of information here for you to use, and this summary is very intriguing.

    • Hello Abigail,

      I really liked how informative your post was on vaccines. I am curious if you believe it is immoral to not vaccinate your child. Because if you don’t vaccinate your child, your risking their lives and the lives of others, so does that come down to a matter of morality?
