  • Hi sarah,
    I found this very intriguing. I was adopted and I don’t think I can say I have ever felt a loss of myself or debated whether my birth mother or mother was my real mother. I believe that the woman who raised me is my real mother. You said, “When the child loses its mother, it also loses its sense of self. The child grows up feeling empty,…Read More

  • Hi Grace,
    I found this entry very interesting. I knew that veganism benefitted your diet but I didn’t know that consuming less animals products also helps improve your mood and lower stress levels. I find that very interesting. I also enjoyed reading about the health risks that follow veganism as well. I agree that many vegans miss out on foods…Read More

    • This is a very uplifting and happy post Emma! I have had many of my family friends receive breast cancer, and it seems that all of them have beaten it. What about other cancers? Is the mortality rate improving for them too? Great post!

    • Emma,
      This is amazing, wonderful news! I didn’t know any of this and your post really excited me! Thank you for taking the time to post this on youth voices because if you hadn’t I wouldn’t have learned this exciting information for women. Keep up the awesome work, and keep researching deeper into this topic because I feel like you could go really deep into this and maybe even make something of it!

    • I really enjoyed reading this! It is great to hear that more and more people are surviving breast cancer. I found it interesting that the survival rate isn’t increasing because of preventative measures, it’s because of improvement in treatments. I hope we will see progress like this for other cancers as well!

    Emma commented on the post, Prison Life

    Giselle,
    You are very brave to do research on such a hot topic like this. I think your paper will be very interesting and will leave a lot of your viewers enlightened on what really goes on in prison. No one really cares about inmates solely because they are in prison. I am glad you are bringing light to the situation. Good luck on your paper, I…Read More

  • Mayree,
    I really enjoyed reading this post. I found it very interesting. I always knew that veganism was good for you I just didn’t know it was better for you than a western style diet. I can’t wait to read more of your posts! Good luck on the rest of your research.

  • This should be a very interesting paper. I am a vegetarian for the reason of eating animal products feels immoral to me. I am interested in seeing what you find out.

  • I think this is a great subject to do a research project on. It is something we are seeing more and more of today. This should be very interesting and I am interested in reading your research paper.

    Annika,
    Trevor and Ryan’s comments are irrelevant your actual post. I appreciate your post on Christmas tradition. It’s nice to see how you enjoy tradition and really understand the meaning of family, including family tradition. I have many christmas traditions as well with my family. Sometimes we overlook the true meaning of Christmas and…Read More

    Emma commented on the post, Coral

    I enjoyed this poem. I feel like there was a deeper meaning behind this than what meets the eye. I loved how you talked about the journey of coral and how it ended up on shore and ended it’s journey. It was well written.

    This is a very well written post. I am also a senior who is applying to colleges and it is unfortunate that the price of a school os what is going to determine where I go. College is so expensive and I believe the price need to be lowered. For a nation that values education so much, why are they making us pay so much for it. One of our human…Read More

    Emma commented on the post, At least three fingers

    This is a very inspirational and strong poem. It addresses a very important issue of today’s age. I agree with everything you said. I have grown up in catholic school all my life. In middle school, we needed our skirts to be past our knees in fear of looking innapropriate. Now, in my high school, we had our skorts taken away for the reason of them…Read More

    I really like how you brought up two important issues in this letter. It is clear you are passionate about both. I like the things you said about immigration. It is a very important issue that needs to be addressed. I agree with everything you said. Also, I really liked how you brought up terrorism. It is a serious problem that I believe needs…Read More

    Blake,
    I am pro-choice but am perfectly fine with people stating their opinions on abortions especially since it is such a hot topic in society today. However, one comment you said I MUST comment on. “But once a woman thinks of her own comfort over the life of her child, we are just okay with her killing it.” I find this extremely disturbing.

  • Gary,
    I was quite inspired by this post. I agree that domestic violence against women is at an all time high right now. I find it intriguing that with all the rape cases that are on the news that there isn’t much being done about the issue. I think we need to find a solution to end domestic violence against women and men for that matter. Domestic…Read More

  • Priscilla,
    I strongly agree with you on this topic. I am a vegetarian because I don’t believe animals should be killed for food, clothes, etc. just because they are not people. A lot of animals in this world are nearing extinction because of mankind’s “needs” for clothes and such. They should be treated fairly. We have human rights, so they…Read More

  • This post was great. You used great examples and it was very detailed. As a student who will soon be in college, I really was affected by this. Great post.

    Emma commented on the post, Equal Pay for Women

    Daniela-
    I agree with everything you said. The gender wage gap is a very big issue in society today. It does need to be fixed. It is unfair and unjust that women are paid less than men. one thing I found interesting that you said is that women who achieve the same jobs as men still get paid less. This was a great post.

    Callie-
    I really enjoyed your post. I agree with everything you said. Society these days all have their own beliefs and are going to believe what they want to. I think people need to be educated on abortion. I think women should have a choice in what they want to do with their bodies. I believe in pro-life but I also believe in pro-choice. I…Read More

  • Grace-
    This is a really good post. The information included is great. We need to make people aware of the issues involving LGBTQ in society today. I agree with everything you said. Violence against the LGBTQ community is at a high right now and something needs to be done about it. This was a great post.

    • The reason the abortion should be illegal is not because of religious beliefs, but because it is murder. If a pregnant woman is killed, it is a double homicide because the baby would die as well. But once a woman thinks of her own comfort over the life of her child, we are just okay with her killing it. I am all for women’s rights, that is why i don’ t want to kill little women before they are given a chance for life.

      • Blake,
        I am pro-choice but am perfectly fine with people stating their opinions on abortions especially since it is such a hot topic in society today. However, one comment you said I MUST comment on. “But once a woman thinks of her own comfort over the life of her child, we are just okay with her killing it.” I find this extremely disturbing. How could you possibly choose one life over another. There are a lot of pregnancies terminated because it is a threat to the mother’s life(health reasons) or the woman was raped, etc. No one is “okay” with an abortion. If for one second you think a woman goes into an abortion clinic smiling and leaving smiling you are most definitely mistaken. Pregnancies are ended for many reasons that you obviously don’t understand and need to be educated on.

    • Dear Emma,
      I am interested in your post because abortion is somewhat ignored, in my opinion. My perspective on abortion is it should be illegal. Abortion is basically killing an innocent little baby, it is very wrong. One thing you said that stands out for me is “Around 56 million abortions occur each year in the world, with a little under half done unsafely.” I think this is sad because the mother could die during this process. It is no good for anybody to get an abortion, some doctors do not know how to do procedures right. Thanks for your project. I look forward to seeing what you write next because you talk about interesting topics. Topics that are not talked about much but are important to look into.
