This makes me think about how hard was for Iranians to adapt to a new whole system. They were coming from a conservative place, they had rules about how to dress and how to think and they just came to one of the most liberal places in the world known as the United states.

New thoughts

From my perspective, this is completely right. As an immigrant, I know this feeling because I have been very influenced by this country and a lot of people from here have been influenced by me. I also can imagine how grateful Iranians are with this country for opening their doors to them when they needed the most. Print this page. […]

I agree with you! It is really sad to see how people who have been working their whole life for the United states are not able yet to get their citizenship or any legal document. Print this page. Author Camila

Scary

Same thing happened to me, I felt so scared when I came to this country the first time, and especially when I went to BHS for the first time, I didn’t know anyone, and the buildings were too big for me. Nowadays, I am so grateful with every single person that I met in BHS, I made incredible friendships and […]

Demotivated kids

I totally believe this is a fact. People need to socialize, humans need humans, and more for kids and teenagers who are constantly growing up. Being the whole day stuck at home can create confusion, depression, anxiety and suicidal thoughts. Furthermore, it could create a sedentary lifestyle and loneliness. I understand how worry parents are by seeing their children every […]

Reopening schools

On one hand, I really like distance learning because as an immigrant it allowed me to learn more grammar and improve my vocabulary. On the other hand, I understand the concern that parents are having because their children are learning absolutely nothing during this whole year of pandemic. Therefore, I totally agree with the idea of reopening schools for those […]

feeling.

I know how it feels because I’ve had several mental health crisis. Sometimes, I feel I have a lot of homework and not enough time to finish all of them. Also being in a computer 24/7 could be overwhelming and stressing. I just hope the change won’t be so drastic when we go back to school. Print this page. Author […]

teachers

Forcing teachers to come back school doesn’t sound like a good plan. First of all, the government cannot comment on their personal decisions, more than teachers, they are humans and they should have the total control over their actions and to decide whether or not to come back. Last but not least, their health is just as important as the […]

Safety

Even though I understand that many parents want they children coming back to school, we all have to understand that exposing our lives is not the best way to come back. Therefore, we have to be prepared and well-informed about the returning to school. Print this page. Author Camila

Confusion

I can connect to this because sometimes I feel overwhelmed about my further education. I am really misinformed about how to get enroll into college and that frustrates me. Print this page. Author Camila

Anxiety, stress and depression

It is surprising for me to see how parents are taking seriously the mental health of their children. Being at home the whole day can cause anxiety, stress and depression therefore, I can understand how they feel being stuck at home everyday. Print this page. Author Camila

services

During COVID, many people were paying for things that they didn’t get as the same way before. For example: universities, schools, gyms, etc. A fun fact is that they kept paying the same amount of money for online things than in-person. Print this page. Author Camila

police

This part stood out to me because how desperate can someone be to send to police to arrest their children? Print this page. Author Camila

Lack of in-person services

Even though people don’t understand that there are more people with bigger problems, I don’t feel that people with mental illness were prioritized. There’s a part on the text that says that people related with mental health conditions were just sent home which I feel it is inappropriate due to their families don’t have the capacity to deal with them.

Understanding

Nobody expected a global pandemic therefore special illness centers weren’t prepared and sometimes people have to understand that they are not the only ones with the biggest problem, there are people dealing with harder situations. Print this page. Author Camila

Having to deal people with mental illness having no experience.

When the pandemic started, I never thought about how these people with any mental illness would suffer the consequences, and not just them, their families. Most of these people go to special centers and now that the pandemic exits their families have to take care of them and having to deal with them. People with mental illness is not easy […]

Justice for everyone.

When the pandemic started, teachers looked for an online solution and now that some of them don’t want to come back have they been threatened with closing google classroom? that is not fair and really cruel. I hope that google classroom stays open for everybody because it is such a great platform and it also keeps students organized with their […]

Not fair

I cannot believe this, I thought teachers had the chance to choose whether or not coming back to school. Teachers are the must important part of a school and if they don’t feel comfortable, they shouldn’t go because they are going to transmit that to their students. If they don’t want to show up, they should be assigned with any […]

control

This makes me think about how different Biden is taking control over the pandemic in contrast to Donald trump. He seems to be handling so much better and in a organized way. Print this page. Author Camila

Excellent strategy. Don't forget to use the mask even though you got the vaccine already.

These goals are excellent, everyone should keep this in mind because if we don’t take care of each other everything is going to be closed again, I just hope that everyone agrees with getting the vaccine and protecting themselves using masks. I just hope this pandemic ends by the end of 2021 and we can come back to normal life. […]

Schools should be open but with safety strategies.

In my opinion reopening schools soon is going to be a huge change and I just agree with it if getting the vaccine become a requirement for everyone, including students. I also think that everyone should keep their masks on for a while. Reopening school is a great motivation for people who are every day at home and need to […]

normal things

This reminds me how normal people are demanding normal things that for them are not normal because over history they were mistreated and abused. They also are used to think that they don’t deserve or are not ready to get these basic things, and now they are fighting and protesting for bread, housing, education, clothing and things that every normal […]

According to this paragraph, black people wanted to be judged for black people and not for white people.

I think this means that black people should judge black people and not white ones judging black people,because at that time, racism was really noticeable therefore if a black person committed a minor crime and that person was judged for a white one that crime would be penalized as a big crime being a small one.

COVID-19 Around the World: Buenos Aires, Argentina

The pandemic has been present in our lives since the CDC reported the first case in the United States a year ago. A lot of people were really misinformed about this virus, I heard several times people making fun of COVID-19 because they didn’t know what consequences it would bring to our normal routine in the future. When I first […]
