The US is debating on giving people $1,000 to help them support their family and to get bills and or necessities out of the way. Yes, this sounds great but where is it coming from? That money doesn’t just grow on
Hey dom, nice post. I agree that it will further the national debt but I think that it supports the citizens of America and shows that America cares and wants people to survive. And also I don’t think that we will be the ones paying back the debt because only certain people in our age group qualify so I feel like it would be unjust for some to have to repay the national debt.

I completely agree with you. People come to America to pursue their American-Dream, but when they get here they don’t have the same opportunities as others do nor do they dominate the english language making it harder on them to learn and communicate.

Hey Dominic I thought your topic was very important. Today we use so much plastic it is unbelievable, we have huge piles of plastic just floating in the water. None of its good, water bottles, caps, etc. anything that is not biodegradable will be on the earth for 100’s of years. Here is a link to a similar topic.…[Read more]
Hey Mariely, the topic you chose is so very important in todays society. Technology has advanced so much in the past decade and it has honestly just become more of a distraction. Cars are now compatible with phones which is another distraction added to the list. My point is that no matter what you drive or how long you’ve driven you are always…[Read more]

Hey Kaitlyn, I completely agree with teaching kids about sex education at a younger age. Kids do not understand the consequences that could come with practicing unsafe sex. Its scary to think that in 2017 over 194,377 babies were birthed by a teen-age mother. Education on sex is a very important thing to know when it comes to your future life and…[Read more]
Parents are teaching their kids values in the wrong ways. Giving kids video games that show aggression and violence is just like a gateway drug, in the sense that it introduces them to a harmful and aggressive
Hey dom, I thought this post was very insightful and necessary. However, I’d have to disagree in some cases. I feel like it depends on how often you play the game and who you play it with. Anyway, cool post bro
Dominic, In today’s society, the topic of kids being negatively affected by violent games is commonly addressed. The statistic that,”60% of boys and 40% of girls in middle school that has played or watched a violent video game are bound to bully, fight, or have aggression” is one that is quite surprising. I believe that video games can indeed have a negative effect on young children, however an average of 50% seems rather high. That said I have limited knowledge and so the fact could very well be true, in which case I think we need to not expose young kids to such violent games. I feel that games can also have a positive benefit to children as it simultaneously teaches them problem solving skills in various adventure based games. However at the end of the day I believe that other activities such as exercise, music, etc. have more positive effects than gaming. Overall you have a well written post and I am interested in hearing more.
Hi Dominic, Cool post, I agree that we should not let kids play violent video game, because kids does not have cognitive ability as adult, so we should keep them out of that kind of game. I think kids should only look at cartoon and play normal game, and do not spend too much of time on it, that’s what my parents told me.

This is a youth-powered publishing platform that was started in 2003 by a group of teachers from local sites of the National Writing Project.
We merged several earlier blogging projects. We have found that there are many advantages to bringing students together in one site that lives beyond any particular class. It’s easier for individual students to read and write about their own passions, to connect with other students, comment on each other’s work, and create multimedia posts for each other. Further, it’s been exciting for us to pool our knowledge about curriculum, connected learning, and digital literacies.
There are over 8,000 posts and over 13,000 comments by young people on the site on topics as diverse as the American Dream, Shakespeare, and sports as well as original poems and stories.
Youth Voices is a platform for youth to write about their interests, both in school and outside of school: what they are reading, what their hobbies or future careers might be, what they enjoy in their spare time. Like all of us, students follow our national leadership and form opinions. They are also welcome to write about those topics as well.
Youth Voices is fully non-partisan and welcomes youth of all types, from all regions, and with all viewpoints. Educators support youth in writing and thoughtfully responding to each other through the use of commenting guides, using tags to show common interests, playlists to support self-guided inquiry; opinions expressed by writers are their own.
If being part of such a community makes sense to you, we invite you to join us. We welcome all youth and any teacher interested in having students publish online and participate in the give and take of a social network like Youth Voices.
