  • Dear Caroline, 
    I am amused by your post, “Climate Change & Gas Prices,” because it gives additional information on how climate can affect prices. It’s very sad that global warming can affect the way people live. 
    One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “The increased gas prices, thought to spark a rush towards cleaner energy sources…Read More

    Death penalty

    The article "death penalty" states that some countries go against the death penalty for those that have been caught out of age 18 without them knowing that in 70 years they would be innocent. Europeans call this the...

      I am moved by your post, “Death penalty,” because this is and has been a very controversial topic for a while. There are many people who argue that the death penalty is justifiable and many who argue that it is cruel and unusual.I think this is powerful because there are many people who bend the rules or the law in their favor without considering how it might affect everything. People think that just because they can get away with something means that it’s okay to do it.

      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because this was a very interesting topic and it seems we have similar interests. I would like to see what other topics you come across that I might also find interesting.

    • I absolutely agree with you, I think the concept of the death penalty is just revolting to think about. I recognize how controversial this topic is for some people, but for me, I couldn’t agree with your points more. something needs to be done to change the way we see other humans who do wrong, but death should never have been an option.
      I especially agree with the last line of your post, I feel like a lot of people in the law abuse their power and their needs to be changed.
      thank you for your writing here’s another article on this topic if you’d like to read

    • Dear Diana, I am very intrigued by your post that discusses the death penalty because the death penalty is a very serious topic because it deals with the taking of another human’s life. I believe that no human should have their life taken from them, no one should have a say in whether someone dies or not.
      What caught my eye the most in your post was how you discussed in your last paragraph how we need all eight amendments to combat this issue, and I wonder how all eight of those amendments will exactly help against this issue.

      Thank you for posting Dianna I look forward to seeing what other posts you post in the future.

  • Dear Ema :

    I am happy with your post, “Debates over Gun Control Laws in the United States,” because I accept the fact that people can be affected by guns. It makes less and decreases mass shootings from one group. I agree that the government should do something about this law.

    • Dear Diana:

      I am impressed by your post,” Day of the Dead (Día de los Muertos),” because it is a very important holiday to celebrate. It is important to celebrate because it introduces our loved ones. 

      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “We would want to introduce those because they are important to us. It was when the Aztecs had known about the dead community in Mexico and celebrated it in a big community.” I think this is important because there were people before Hispanic people who created this holiday. 

      Thank you for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because this holiday is very important to the Hispanic community, as ofrendas can remember loved ones. I would like you to create more posts like this about the Hispanic community in the future.

    • Dear Diana,

      I am amazed by your post, “Day of the Dead”, because you include the past history of the day of the dead. Also, you include the common things that are done when celebrating the day of the dead.

      One sentence you wrote that stood out to me is, “You may see that Spanish conquistadores brought such traditions with them to the New World”. I find this surprising because I had no absolute idea that this tradition became a thing in Mexico due to the Spanish conquistadores. I thought that it was originally from Mexico and only Mexico.

      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because you have taught me some new information. I wonder what else you might bring to the table that will make me learn something different and can leave me amazed.

      Sincerely,
      Yaritzi Torres

      • Yaritzi,

        I am appealed by your comment because of the similarity it shares with mine. I see that the sentence that stood out to you was the same one it stood out to me and it is good to see others share the same analysis of the post as mine. I also did not know that Day of the Dead came from the culture in Spain and not originally from Mexico so we also had that in common as well. I found that surprising because when I see or learn something about day of the dead, it is always represented in Mexican culture, so all in all I think I was just as surprised as you were.

    • Dear Diana,

      I was appealed by your post “Day of the Dead” because it talks about an annual holiday that just happened a few days ago. Day of the dead or dia de Los Muertos is still a topic that is fresh on my mind due to recency.

      One sentence you wrote that stands out to me is “you may see that Spanish conquistadores brought such traditions with them to the New World.” This is surprising to me because I did not know that this particular celebration came from Spain as I always thought it originated in Mexico.

      Thank you for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I learned something new which helps expand my knowledge. I also was interested in the fact that you talked about something that is big in Hispanic culture which I am sure a lot of us can relate to.

    • Dear Diana,

      I am stoked by your post, “Day of the Dead,” because it talks about the history of how and why the Day of the Dead is celebrated. In many places, the Day of the Dead is a celebration that is still celebrated nowadays to remember loved ones that are no longer with us.

      One sentence you wrote that stands out is “You may see that Spanish conquistadores brought such traditions with them to the New World.” I think this is really shocking because I have always thought that the Dia De Los Muertos originated in Mexico. I never really thought that the Spanish Conquistadores were the ones who brought this tradition over from their country.

      Thanks for writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I now know where the Day of the Dead originated. It’s also really helpful to know and find out more about the traditions that are celebrated and their history.

  • Dear sam :

    I am surprised by your image, “To the folks in Texas, I hope you all that have experienced loss are well.,” because a lot of tragedies like this have happened. I believe that your support was awesome. I really liked that you did that shows a very great person from you that you care.
