    • Hi Ben!
      Great post! I agree with your opinion that Huck is still growing up and doesn’t really lead well yet. It is every obvious in the story that he considers Tom as his role model and I think he does everything that Tom asks because he isn’t used to having someone in charge to look up to. However, there are also moments in the story where Huck doesn’t act like how society wants him to and I think those are qualities of a leader too! I think there are many views to this topic! Great work and nice job with the post!

    • Ben, I really like how you related censorship to the exposure of religion. I think it is important, especially today, that we teach our generation and generations to come, how to be more open minded. Your religion might be a part of who you are, but it doesn’t define who you are. The stigmas and the stereotypes have to go, we are all similar in many ways and shouldn’t be judging each other.

    • This was very well written and you did a very good job at connecting the thought of religion it other things like the Religious Freedom Act and a book you were reading in class. You did a very good job as getting right to the point and not dragging out your thoughts. It is clear how you feel on this subject and i have to agree that we tend to judge people on their religion and it is a problem.

    • Ben, I really like your response of religion. I am agree with you, it is unreasonable to judge or come to conclusions on someone purely based on their religion. First, freedom of religion is written in the United States’ Constitution in First Amendment. Every people living in this country should being respect to the Constitution. Second, religion should not be a sensitive tage of people. Religion is more like culture or spirit from inner your mind. We are all same to each other, religion should not be used for someone to judging others.

    • I think your idea of including education about what being transgender is a fantastic idea. If kids learn about it through an unbiased source and learn the real facts about being transgender they will have a better chance of being accepting and teaching others to be accepting! In our world today this is something that needs to change.

    • Hi Ben, I thought this was extremely well written and compelling. I like that you introduced yourself and told the readers a little bit about your environment and how you were raised; I feel like that is such an important consideration when looking at someone’s views. You should expand more on how you think kids should be educated on the topic transgender rights. Consider omitting first and second person pronouns.
