    • What I like that the reader put in his or her story is that you have to believe in something if you want to do that.

    • Conor,
      Thank you for your post! I really like your This I Believe essay. I agree that having self confidence is necessary for you to succeed. I think the personal story you told in your essay helps your audience connect with you and understand your opinion. I connected with your story because I also find in sports it is necessary for you believe you can do before you will be able to do it. Thank you for your post!

    • I agree with your post Conor. Having confidence is very important. This reminds me of “fake it till you make it.” I think that works.

    • I really like this piece of work, I also believe that self confidence is important as if you never believed in yourself you wouldn’t have been motivated to do anything in the first place, with the mindset of “I cant”. I appreciate this post as I feel like this could give others support and help when they need it, a good piece of advice along the way.

  • Basil,

    I agree with many of the things you say here. People tend to think that their opinion is the only one that should matter, that they are always right, and that everyone else should think like they do. I did a short author bio on David Sedaris, and while I believe that what he said about not using the right to get married to whoever you want…Read More

    Conor commented on the post, Land of the free?

    Adam,

    First off, I’d like to say that I admire how passionate you are about this topic, and questioning our government’s decisions and regulations is a core part of what it means to live in America and be an American. However, don’t forget that many of the things that the government does are them trying to protect us from others and ourselves.…Read More
