  • Julia,
    I like how you introduced your blog post with a practical example that catches the reader’s attention. I agree with your point that ride share services have several problems that users often do not consider before getting into a stranger’s vehicle. You used strong evidence from a variety of sources to support your claim. Additionally, you…Read More

    • I really like you’re post about the problem of homelessness and the connection with covid. I agree with you about how homelessness affects us as a society and how it affects businesses. Overall, I liked your post about the homeless community and the affect it has on everyone!

    • Dear Emily, I really enjoyed reading your article. Homelessness has increased due to the pandemic. Unfortunately not everybody could be helped but maybe one day we can eventually help everybody out so nobody will be homeless. I agree with you that homelessness does affect businesses and our society! It’s overall a sad situation. Thank you for your writing.

      I am surprised by your writing, “The Epidemic of Homelessness due to Covid” because even though I had the general knowledge based around the issue, I wasn’t aware of the many other effects that this had on shelters and emergency services. Along with the way you speak of covid spreading quicker through these homeless shelters. This ties into the sentence you wrote which really got my attention, “As more and more people are staying in homeless shelters, they have become a petri dish for the coronavirus to spread.”, I feel as if this is an important point because, without the resources needed to support them, the homeless people are more likely to develop sever cases of Covid.
      Thank you for writing this and I look forward to your future writings because your way of explaining things is really engaging and helpful as it paints a picture for us, the readers. I would like to see what you have to say about other important topics.

    I like how you introduced this blog post with a strong sentence to get the readers attention. I agree with your point that many people are unaware of the persecution that is taking place towards Christians around the world. You use strong evidence and a variety of sources to support your claim. Additionally, your analysis of the quotes…Read More

    • Dear Emily,

      Thank you for informing people about how there is an increasing number of homeless people. I liked how you also mentioned that before the pandemic homeless people were already struggling. Another thing that I found interesting is that you mentioned how the pandemic left many people homeless and was being forced them out of their homes. Not only were they forced out of their homes but homeless shelters were not even accepting people.

  • Claire,
    I like how you introduced your previous blog post and connected it to this one. I agree with your point that with the coronavirus pandemic there is a lack of empathy and understanding that people are looking for now more than ever. You used strong evidence from a variety of sources to support your claim. Additionally, your analysis of…Read More
