Hi Maggie, Thank you for Your information, I agree that the government has published more and more laws for stoping teen vaping, but it is not enough. Vaping is bad, but there is no way we can stop it, the only way is people themselves should be aware. Cindy Huang

Hi Cindy, I think the topic you chose was really cool! But I think you should have stayed in the boundaries of whether it’s legal or not. Instead of venturing into the topic of how selfish it is or how “stupid” is it to be quoted by you. I think this article will help you understand how suicidal people truly feel instead of your own judgement. http://healthexperiencesusa.org/depression-in-young-adults/living-with-depression/how-depression-feels/ I hope this article helps you see the true reasons why some people choose this option.
I think this discussion is very interesting, especially because I can’t find an answer for the question. While I do not think suicide is right, it seems ridiculous for it to be a crime.

This is a youth-powered publishing platform that was started in 2003 by a group of teachers from local sites of the National Writing Project.
We merged several earlier blogging projects. We have found that there are many advantages to bringing students together in one site that lives beyond any particular class. It’s easier for individual students to read and write about their own passions, to connect with other students, comment on each other’s work, and create multimedia posts for each other. Further, it’s been exciting for us to pool our knowledge about curriculum, connected learning, and digital literacies.
There are over 8,000 posts and over 13,000 comments by young people on the site on topics as diverse as the American Dream, Shakespeare, and sports as well as original poems and stories.
Youth Voices is a platform for youth to write about their interests, both in school and outside of school: what they are reading, what their hobbies or future careers might be, what they enjoy in their spare time. Like all of us, students follow our national leadership and form opinions. They are also welcome to write about those topics as well.
Youth Voices is fully non-partisan and welcomes youth of all types, from all regions, and with all viewpoints. Educators support youth in writing and thoughtfully responding to each other through the use of commenting guides, using tags to show common interests, playlists to support self-guided inquiry; opinions expressed by writers are their own.
If being part of such a community makes sense to you, we invite you to join us. We welcome all youth and any teacher interested in having students publish online and participate in the give and take of a social network like Youth Voices.
