  • Ed, I believe that you have crafted a very well-written essay on the problem of helicopter parenting that a lot of people do not like to address. Many children nowadays are coddled by their parents to the point where they are unable to function later in life, leading to extremely dire consequences. As a child, my parents helped me out in many…Read More

    Billy commented on the post, A Poem

    Kevin, I really enjoyed your poem as a whole and how your formatted the structure of the story. It almost felt as though I was there witnessing this great battle unfold. The lines that say, “You talk mighty talk dragon, but when we clash I will have the end glory. A perfect ending to this knight’s story” were just so perfectly written! I really l…Read More

    • Billy!
      What a great start to you research essay. You had great evidence and multiple argumentative points, which is the most important part of a research paper. I never knew there were meteors of that great of a size just floating around in space; that is terrifying! I also never knew that a meteor hit is the thing that will most likely lead to our world’s complete deterioration. Then again, I usually don’t think about the end of the world. You should look into this article http://www.independent.co.uk/news/science/huge-asteroid-that-could-end-the-world-is-defying-gravity-as-it-moves-towards-earth-scientists-say-9670910.html it mentions multiple studies that have to do with your same topic. That website actually has many articles that discuss mass meteors, and their likeliness to hit Earth, etc. You should definitely check it out! I hope they help.

    • Billy,
      This is a crazy and scary topic. You have a host of good evidence here, and it’s going to be a really good essay in the end. My question for you is, since this is an argumentative essay, when do you think the human race, and do you think it will be natural or human-caused? Another thing to consider is the group of scientists that calculate the “doomsday clock,” since they are experts on the issue of when the world (at least for humankind) is ending (and we’re really, really close). The contemporary “end of the world” is this argument that does not seem to be dissolving between the U.S. and North Korea. Read this article: https://nypost.com/2017/10/11/north-korea-to-us-were-on-the-brink-of-nuclear-war/ … and tell me what you think.

    • Hey Billy, This is an amazing topic that has potential for a multitude of points of view. This is a somewhat scary topic to discuss because it is talking about the unpreventable demise of the human race. I personally think that it will be humankind that destroys itself. We are constantly developing things that can bring great harm to our environment as well as ourselves. I found an article that talks about one idea about how the world will come to an end due to a population outburst and deteriorating resources.

      This is idea for a research essay and am curious to know about how humankind will meet its demise. That sentence I wrote sounds terribly dark, anyways good luck.

    Billy commented on the post, Where I Am From

    Autumn, I really enjoyed reading your poem as it really conveyed you as a person through all of your personal interests and aspirations. I especially liked the line where you said “I am from warmth and comfort
    and understanding”, as it conveyed perhaps your emotions to other around you. This style of formatting your poem was really beautiful and I…Read More

  • Cicely, I find that your research topic on the Church’s attitude towards mental illness is compelling as nobody seems to be talking about it. I found it surprising when you said that “her normal doctor advised against it”, was he in fact religious in any sense? I also took the liberty of researching and finding an interesting source concerning…Read More
