    •   jDestiny, I am interested by your post, “NFL to Hire More Diverse coaches” because I agree with you that there should be more diverse coaches and they should be given a chance to work in the NFL. I think it is unjust how the majority of coaches are white and male. I think this because different ethnicity’s and gender should be given a chance to coach. One sentence that stood out to me is, “However, we need to start seeing a change in the coaches because women are barely coaches and do not have a chance as much as a male.Have you ever noticed that in the NFL we usually see male coaches who are usually of the race white?”. This stood out to me because it says a lot about the NFL not hiring distinct coaches. Thank you for writing I look forward to seeing what you write in next, because I really like how you express your opinion. I would like you to continue to express your opinions on certain things.

    • Dear Destiny,

      I am interested in your post “NFL to Hire More Diverse Coaches” because most coaches of the NFL are white. 

      One sentence you wrote that stood out to me was “The main issue is that coaches being hired are usually of a higher level and have more to offer. However, we need to start seeing a change in the coaches because women are barely coaches and do not have a chance as much as a male.” I think this is important because women can very much do the same job as men. As well as, white people being hired because they are considered “qualified” but what if the person of color has more to offer with more experience. 

      Thank you for writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next.

    • Dear Destiny, 

      Your post really interested me because usually regarding diversity in sports my mind always goes to diversity amongst players. However, in sports there are many jobs/positions that also lack diversity, like coaches. I definitely agree that usually coaches are white and definitely majority male.

      A sentence you wrote that stands out to me is: “I feel there are fewer chances for females and people of color to get NFL coach jobs.”. I agree that the reason we don’t see much diversity is lack of resources and opportunity. There are so many people who are qualified but don’t have these positions because of this lack of resources.

      Thank you for writing this post! I look forward to what you write next because with this post I was given a new perspective on something that I am passionate about. It also drives me to learn more about how I can promote diversity in all areas of life.

  • Dear Arual,
    I am amazed by your post, “To protect black women and save America from itself, elect Black women” because it is cool how nowadays, we view huge amounts more African American women holding political office. It is a good thing for individuals to be recognized after their hardships.

    One sentence that you wrote that stands out to me is:…Read More

    • Dear Destiny :
      I am surprised  by your post, “Ukraine Asks for More Help and Biden Responds
      ,” because of the fact that Putin has made a mess out of the lives of ukrainian that is also affecting the people of other countries.
      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “Zelensky is not only asking for help from the United States but from the whole world.” I think this is worrisome because that means that his country isin great suffering and needs help but also the others are trying to not start a WW3, it would be chaotic. I don’t know how Biden and the other leaders could help in this situation aside from sending resources. 
      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because you bring out the facts in a short way and are faster to understand.

    • Dear Destiny:

      I am impressed by your post, “Ukraine Asks for More Help and Biden Responds,” because this is occurring right now and many people are suffering with this. And they can’t do anything. They just want to get more help for Ukraine to save their lives. 

      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “Russia has already fired more than a thousand missiles at Ukraine and has also used bombs and drones to murder Ukrainians.” I think this is devastating because people are not guilty about the problems that they have. There are kids in there that are innocent and they don’t have nothing to do.

      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because I have an interest in what Ukraine is going through. And what they are doing to save their lives and other citizens too.

      I am impressed by your post “Ukraine Asks for More Help and Biden Responds” because Russia has already fired thousands of missiles at Ukraine. I think it’s a horrible idea because there are thousands of thousand people who live there.

      One sentence that stood out to me was “ I also feel it is important for the United States to help Ukraine with this issue. Many innocent lives are being stripped from individuals due to this conflict occurring.” I think this is a good idea that the united state should help them with food and essentials.

      Thank you for writing. I wonder if Biden is going to help them out. I am looking forward to what you write next.

      • Dear Jonathan,

        I agree with what you had to say about this article. The way you explain is very good. I like the way you explain this because you explain how Russia had fired thousands of missiles in Ukraine.

        Also, the sentence you had chosen is the sentences that also stood out to me. The sentence explains what’s going on.

        I am looking forward to seeing another post of yours. I like to read what you have to say about the articles.

    • Dear Destiny,
      I am intrigued by your post, “Ukraine Asks for More Help and Biden Responds” because it is interesting how sanctions are being placed on Russia.
      I feel like the sanctions aren’t as effective as Biden thought they would be since we still depend on Russia for many things.
      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is, “This issue is being compared to Pearl Harbor. Zelensky is not only asking for help from the United States but from the whole world.”
      It stands out to me because he is asking for help not only sending food and military equipment and it is because he doesn’t want to risk going to war with Russia.
      If he were to send troops, it could potentially be the start of a third world war.
      Thank you for this information

  • Dear Isabella
    I am surprised by your post, “What Does Too Much Screen Time Do To Children’s Brains,” because not only does too much screen time affect children mentally but also physically. It baffles me that it is more common for young individuals to have lots of screen time.

  • Dear Fatima,

    I am surprised by your post, Suffering from food insecurity, because I think that this issue needs to be explained more. It is a major issue in the world that can be resolved in many ways if individuals talk about it more.

    One sentence that you wrote that stood out to me is, No one should ever face food hunger. I strongly agree…Read More
