    • I love this idea. Writing a poem is very sentimental and may hit people’s emotions towards the topic. Also, with the rise in technology, creating a social media account is a great idea! I do recognize that much of society knows there is poor air pollution, but taking this topic to a new levels what you did. I feel you guys researched this well and using the minds of younger people into account was genius

    • Dear Bryan, Jai’kari, and Latrell,
      I really enjoyed reading your post, it was written well with supporting evidence. I like how you are advocating for our future world and addressing a topic that affects everyone. I wasn’t aware of the statistics you presented about how many people suffer each year from poor air quality. Also, I like how you are using social media platforms to raise awareness, keep up the great work, and thank you for addressing this topic.

    • Dear Bryan, Jai’kari, and Latrell,
      You guys did an amazing job on your post. You gave amazing evidence that was both relevant and well cited. I appreciate what you are doing to contribute to an issue that many choose to brush under the carpet. For those who are determined to make a better world, they thank you for your commitment. And also I LOVE your idea of a poem! Poems for sure give the audience the most emotional effect and really bring insight to them on what the poem is about. Good idea! The part that really ties the bow for me is having the mentality of the younger generations, which are the ones that would be most affected by this issue. Good work showing those who can make a difference that they CAN make a difference. I am a student working in a group touching on this issue and are planning on either contacting a major polluter in Chicago, Illinois directly, or making a public social media post that will contain context on the issue and evidence to support it. It would be much appreciated if you can give me feedback or advice- perhaps some issues that you had and how you handled them- thank you!

      Good Job on your post, very impressive!
      -Steven

    • What a fascinating take on and old standard. I like your approach to the conflict between dichotomous ideals. It has a Matriz-y feel to it.

    • Bryan I really do like the way you have explained and gone into depth about this book, but more than that I love the slide show and illustrations you have provided. I feel like with those images it helps get your point across all that more. I also found an article tying it into social media today that I think you may enjoy.

    • Dear Bryan,
      I was very intrigued and impressed by your work! I thought you provided a descriptive overview of Fahrenheit 451 and had good suggestions as to how to get rid of hegemonic ideologies. The slide show was also very well put together and provided a nice visual representation of your ideas. What really stood out for me was “When they have the ability to think, they will then have the freedom to make a choice…”. This stood out for me because the freedom to think and make choices is such an important ability that everyone has. I think it is great that you are including information about this since it is a simple yet powerful tool. Reading your post made me think back to an experience I had. I have an uncle who would often discourage my hobbies because I could be doing more with my time. I have never questioned his expertise and followed his advice. However, I soon realized that these choices did not make me happy and questioned myself about what I truly wanted. In the end, I learned to use my voice to question and think critically. Keep up with the great job and looking forward to your future writings!

  • Thanks for your comment. Something that stood out to me was when you said, “I didn’t grow playing soccer like most people so I really don’t like it”. This stood out to me because you are basically saying that you don’t like soccer because you pretty much haven’t played it. So that means you are just going to basically hate on soccer but you hav…Read More
