Chisom, though I do agree with you on the point that every American is entitled to equality, I do not understand what you mean when you say that, "people of different races and sexualities have had trouble attaining their rights and it shows that people living in the us...

Ceceli, I think that your topic concerning the misconceptions of Planned Parenthood is very important as it plays a very big role in our society. Many people underestimate how much good it does for humanity as a whole, and not everybody understands this idea. I found it shocking when...

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...

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...

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...

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...

Jaylin, though I do not know you personally, I think that they way in which you express yourself in this poem is simply beautiful. By describing yourself through things you love and enjoy, you portray a sense of individualism that is unique from any other person. Please continue to...

Ed, I find that your analysis of age limits for certain things such as voting, drinking, and being eligible for things such as war very compelling, as not many people consider why these ages were set in the first place. I am very interested to hear more about this...

Maxwell, I found that your article on assisted suicide was very interesting and I am glad that you brought this subject to light. Though it is an uncomfortable subject to talk about, it is necessary to discuss as it happens on a daily basis. I also learned new information...

Srihita, I am very glad that you followed up on this experiment as I saw it a few weeks ago and was curious as to what you found out. I am genuinely surprised that there is actually a great number of people who do not support euthanasia and would...

Srihita, I hope that you can post the results of your survey after it is completed, as I find it a very compelling and challenging issue to tackle. Not enough people focus on how big of a problem this matter has become in terms of morals, and I think...

Keaton, I really enjoyed your article and thought that your comparison between Huxley's "Brave New World" and CRISPR was spot on. Though genetic engineering does sound like a good idea in theory, there are a lot of problems that come with it . A good example of this is...

Sofia, I like how you are bringing up the topic of climate changes creating ideal conditions for more and more hurricanes, as that seems to be a disconnect that many people seem to be making nowadays. I would like to hear more from you concerning this issue, so I...

Makenna, this post was very accurate as it is true that people should accept you for who you are and that if they don't, others will come along who do genuinely care for you as a person. Another great thing about your post was how you explained that things...

Dear Erick I believe that you have found a great topic concerning the riots in Charlottesville, but perhaps you should go a bit more in-depth into the reasons as to why the riots really started. I found this article on the Washington Post that really goes into detail with the...

Eric, I find your topic concerning the ethical responsibilities of artificial intelligence intriguing, and I would like to help you further your research. After digging around a little bit, I came across this website that holds five basic principals of robotics, similar to those you have already presented: "Robots should...

Issa, your topic choice is very interesting as it brings to light an issue that seems to be widely ignored. Because Yemen is such a small country, there doesn't seem to be much effort being put forth to solve issues there such as women's rights or education. I also...

Javier, I believe you are really onto something with your research on the topic of how the fast food industries have taken advantage of the poor, and you have done a lot of work to support this claim. However, I feel that you should shift your attention onto how...

Breyner, I believe that your topic is compelling and can lead to a very interesting research paper, but you made need to focus your attention more on a specific area in California. In your first source, you cite that 1/4 of children in California live in poverty while in...

Cami, I completely agree that art classes can be beneficial to students, especially those in the public education system, but the plain fact is that the budget for such classes isn't available right now. In this article I found https://lawstreetmedia.com/issues/education/cutting-art-programs-schools-solution-part-problem/ the reason as to why art classes are being...

Rim, your research was compelling in terms of how black people can feel oppressed by certain people or the police, but your sources are all one-sided. I would suggest flipping the viewpoint on the oppressed groups. All of your sources are about the injustices suffered by African-Americans, so maybe...

Erica, I completed agree with all the points you have made in your post. Technology is a very volatile element in our culture today and has its benefits and hindrances. You included an interesting quote from the Huffington Post that said, "children’s developing sensory, motor, and attachment systems have...
