    • Dear Claire,

      I found this article you wrote about the impacts of COVID-19 fascinating. I think COVID-19 will most likely be one of the biggest economic shifts in modern history. I vaguely remember the 2008 financial collapse, and I can only now imagine how much more financial fallout will result from the disruption of everyday lives.

    • Claire,
      This is a very interesting take on the pandemic. Obviously, there is a large focus on physical health and the economy within popular media, but there seems to be less focus on the relationship struggles that you are talking about here. I wonder how to combat this and help strengthen relationships between each other while still navigating the newly found covid struggles? Here is a resource I found on how to do that that I think can mostly be applied to more than just Covid. https://www.mentalhealth.org.uk/coronavirus/nurturing-our-relationships-during-coronavirus-pandemic
      I would love to see some more specific issues that families are dealing with. Thank You!

    • Claire,
      I think your post was very interesting! The part when you said “ COVID-19 has taken control of the lives of many beginning in March 2020” really sticks out to me. All of our lives have been drastically changed in almost every aspect. Wearing masks is something that we have all adapted to, but there are some people who will struggle to financially recover from this event for many of the following years. I also think that mental health is something that we should keep in mind, as the pandemic may have lasting affects on the mental health of individuals.

    • Dear Claire:

      I am impressed by your post, “The Impact of COVID-19 on Individuals, Families, and Businesses” because it demonstrated how much family-owned businesses suffered during the pandemic. I think it’s important to know this as the pandemic forced many businesses to either shut down completely or place restrictions.

      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “Individuals have struggled through this pandemic which has led to issues within the family life. Many individuals have lost their jobs out of force and cannot provide for their families financially as they did before.” I think this is important because it demonstrates how family-owned businesses were the ones who struggled the most during the pandemic as they were not able to generate and receive a reliable source of income as they used to in the past. Along with this, it also explained how the pandemic not only affected the economy financially but also how it affected individuals of all age’s relationships.

      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I like how you question whether something could be solved and how it could be solved if we all put our efforts into it. I would like you to continue motivating others to do what’s right for hard-working individuals.

  • Paige,
    I really like how you approached this topic. As a Christian, I find this to be a very important topics that many need to be educated on. I liked that you were able to approach this topic in the sense that individuals don’t realize that Christian prosecution is still used in modern time. I liked that you addressed that speaking on C…Read More

    • I really appreciate your piece as it raises awareness on a topic that needs to be addressed. I agree that no one should be forced to do anything they don’t want to. Something that stood out to me in your writing was “Traffickers might use violence, manipulation, or false promises of well-paying jobs or romantic relationships to lure victims into trafficking situations (“What is Human Trafficking?).” Many people that are not as aware of this topic may not know the forms of ways that people are taken into human trafficking. Your piece was very informative.

  • Claire commented on the post, Empathy on Corona

    Grace, I really liked your blog post. I actually did my topic of empathy on Covid as well. I like how you discussed that empathy can play a big role on an individual’s behavior. I find it interesting that by showing empathy towards other individuals allows us to become more mindful and build a closer relationship with them. I feel that you c…Read More

    Empathy with Covid-19

    As discussed in a previous blog post, "Empathy in Action," a single story can impact how empathy plays a role in identity. Empathy is important because it plays the role of a person’s identity and allows others to put...

    • I really never thought about empathy in relation to COVID-19 before. I like your thoughts and ideas about a way to help people in need, especially teenagers during this difficult situation. I can’t believe that 80% of 80% of adolescent girls feel “more lonely and isolated than before” (TCOR Marketing). This is a great amount of girls and we must find a way to stop this. Empathy is a great way to connect to others and I will try to myself as well. I hope that soon this situation will be over and that people are more understanding of each other even after COVID-19 ends.

    • I agree with this post. As a teenager, I can confirm that I was definitely feeling lower than previous years. I thought I was alone through all of this, but talking with family and friends helped a lot towards hopefulness and optimism for the near future.

    • This has given me something of great significance to think about. In these times everyone is looking to make sure they and their families are going to be ok but this element of making sure those around you in your community are ok seems just as important now. It’s sad to see so many people going to darker places during these times.

    • I feel the exact same way. I really appreciate you giving ways that I can be empathetic and help others in such trying times.

    • I am actually super happy to see that someone has touched base on a topic like this. Id say many people don’t realize that being empathetic can help people. Many people aren;’t as empathetic as they could be. Love the post and great job thank you for sharing.

    • I am really happy to see someone else besides myself talk about how much empathy could help a single person. No one checks up on me and when someone does it feels amazing knowing someone is actually worried about me instead of just living in sadness.

    • Dear Claire :
      I am saddened by your post, “Empathy With Covid 19” because the mental health of a person is very important. Also their stress levels combined with the mental health of a teen can affect the way they do in school.
      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “Not only does using empathy toward others help benefit them, but it also may benefit the person using it.” I think this is great because even if we say hello so each other through text can make their day.
      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because Covid-19 and people mental health is really important. Also I like how you included a short video.

    • Dear Clarie,

      I very much appreciate your post, “Empathy with Covid-19”, as it discusses how people’s mental health has been greatly affected. With these troubling times, people don’t realize that people’s mental health has taken a toll on them and people need to be more considerate of that. It is saddening that people aren’t as empathetic as they should be.

      One sentence you wrote that stood out to me is, “Not only does using empathy toward others help benefit them, but it also may benefit the person using it.” This shows a positive rippling effect and that actions really do make a difference.

      Thank you for this writing. I look forward to what your next writing is, because you bring up issues that need to be addressed more often. I would like you to continue writing about the pandemic and how it affects mental health as well as stating how empathy could help benefit people’s mental health.

    • Dear Claire
      Being empathic to others, especially at the time when our world is at its knees by covid-19. It’s better to see eye to eye to know how we are all feeling. I have become lonely during this event of history, but at least, I can still be connected to others online, no matter if I know them in real life or not. We need to speak and connect with each other, in order to know that we still have hope in life.

    • Claire,
      I like how you introduced your previous blog post and connected it to this one. I agree with your point that with the coronavirus pandemic there is a lack of empathy and understanding that people are looking for now more than ever. You used strong evidence from a variety of sources to support your claim. Additionally, your analysis of the quotes helps the reader understand your argument. I agree with your point that, “Being aware and empathetic with other people’s needs and emotions can help you understand why an individual might be acting a certain way.” This a different way a viewing the subject of empathy as a way to not only understand what someone is going through, but to also understand why they do things in a certain way.
