    Should pro athletes be getting paid more than those who save lives?

    In the article “ Are Pro Athletes Overpaid?” I learned that pro athletes are highly paid. There are some who think they are paid way more than people who save lives, school teachers, and emergency nurses. Jesse Spector a...

    • Ashley, I really enjoyed your post about the salary of professional athletes. In the midst of the pandemic as an avid baseball fan myself, I have found myself debating between the same question; however, I never considered the companies behind the players. While personally, I cannot see the salaries changing in the future, I believe the wages should be more evened out between the two professions.

    • Dear Ashley:
      I don’t agree with you that athletes aren’t overpaid because athletes get contracts with millions of dollars while people like health care workers, social workers get paid less. I understand they put their life on the line to get a chance to play the sport they love and show off to the world their talent but what about the healthcare worker? they should at least be paid very well not the same as Athletes but have a reasonable and good price income.
      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I like hearing different opinions from others and I liked how you gave the reason as to why you believe this.

    Dear Gerardo
    I am surprised by your post ¨ When are you really an adult?¨ because there
    isn’t an official age to be called an adult. However, I feel like it depends on where and how you grew up. One sentence you wrote that stood out to me is¨ Also I believe that the law enforcement should not be so light on juveniles because most of them do kn…Read More

    In the article, ¨ Are smartphones making us stupid?¨I learned that 81% of Americans own a smartphone especially young people. We carry our phones anywhere we go and we use them for everything. Two experts give their opinion on...

    • Dear Ashley,

      I am very interested in your post because I agree that our generation and even those younger than us have a problem with excessive phone usage, which in turn makes us more self-absorbed. I entirely agree that although these devices have a negative impact on ourselves and those around us, they also act as Tools that give us access to greater knowledge and offer different views on the world. One thing you said that stands out to me is: “smartphones are making us more wrapped up in ourselves”. I think that this is truly saddening because I have found myself more indulged in my phone rather than enjoying the company of those I am spending time with sometimes. Your post reminds me of the times I spent on my smartphone at certain gatherings or hanging out with friends. I tend to tune out my surroundings and only focus on what’s going on on this little screen, so miss out on creating memories or having heartfelt conversations with my friends and family.
      Thank you for your project. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I really enjoyed this thought provoking post. Your writing has caused me to reflect on my own smartphone usage and the self-absorption it has caused me to obtain. I am intrigued to see more information you’ve learned from this topic, especially the contrast between older generations and younger generations of today regarding device usage and its effects.

    I am sad about your post Conditions Of Being an Immigrant because I don’t think kids should be separated from their families and I don’t think they deserve those horrible conditions in facilities they stay at. I agree that these families just want a better life for their families.

  • Dear Yamile, I am very interested and informed by your post “Why are many college students in debt?” because I believe college tuition should be free so many students wouldn’t end up in deep debt. I feel like debt is always a problem and a set back for college students its also always talked about. Two sentences you wrote that stood out to me is…Read More

    Is housework split up fairly in your home?

    In the article “Who’s Still Doing The Housework” I learned that the Covid-19 pandemic is helping solidify traditional gender roles. It's important that men and women with families communicate about who does what. In this article, it states the...

    • The article “Is housework split up fairly in your home?” explains how now men help out at home than before. Men before just went to work and came home. Women would be the ones taking care of the kid(s), cleaning, cooking, etc. Now men are coming home and helping out with chores. This is not included in the article but women are able to go to work too. I believe housework has changed a little and it’s getting fair for most families.

    • Dear Ashley,
      I am intrigued by your post because one thing you said that stands out for me is “ Its best if both work and do housework… “ This is a good thing why covid-19 happen both husband and wife can work together and this is a great chance for both to work fairly and in a teamwork. Thank you for sharing your post. I look forward to seeing what you write in the near future.

      Sincerely Rosa

    Ashley commented on the post, Is Boredom A Good Thing?

    Dear Osiris,
    I am contentful by your post ” Is boredom a good thing” because I absolutely agree with your belief about boredom, instead of looking at as a bad thing we could actually use it as a good thing and do anything using our creativity and imagination. Considering new hobbies or joining a club boredom also allows you to engage in self…Read More

    Why are teens fighting for a raise?

    In the article “The Teens Fighting for $15 an Hour,” I learned that teenagers aren't getting paid enough or as equally as other workers. Age doesn't matter, most teens take care of themselves so they need the money too....

    • I personally think that teens should get a raise. Most teens really do need the money. For example, they could be living on their own or helping their parents with bills and/or food. They might also need to pay for college on their own. I think teens getting a raise can help a lot. The raise might not be too much but it will be greatly appreciated.

    • Dear Ashley, I like this topic about teens should get a raise. There are teenagers that are not getting paid enough as other w.orkers are. These teens need a raise now because there are things in their life that they must pay as well. They also need to help their families you never know if they are poor that’s why they are working. They are young but not retarded they can work the same as an adult sometimes. Give them a raise.

    • Dear Ashley:

      I am impressed by the topic you wrote about because this type of topic is not discussed much as teenagers can have harder lives than others and that kind of raise in their wages can help boost their motives to become better. Adults might not think it is a serious topic regarding wages because they think they are too young but why are they deciding the way they are.

      One sentence you wrote that stood out was: ” they think younger people don’t have the capabilities and skills”. I think this is an important sentence because some teenagers can have a huge amount of pressure on their shoulders from a young age yet their parents still see them as “children”.

      Thank you for your writing and will be waiting for your next topic.

    Dear Maggie,

    I am pleased by your post ” Should abortion be illegal?” because I personally think any woman should have the choice to do what they want with their bodies. Especially having the choice to keep a baby or not having a baby is a lot to go through. However not everyone has the same opinion.

    I am contentful by your post ” Parents mean more than we think,” because I certainly agree that our parents mean more than we think in life. Having a good relationship with our parents is very important to our lives because they help us to develop certain skills and help us become the people of the future.
