  • Dear Josie :
    I am emotional by your post, “The World’s need for Pilgrimage,” because you make the statement that we are forgetting about how to live to be there for one another. Also, you stated that when you said that the world is in need of pilgrimage is meaning that everyone needs to basically change their habits for the better.

  • Dear Nathaniel :
    I am amazed by your post, “What is the American Dream” because you explain what the American Dream is for other people in the world or with less. Some other things that come with this American dream are the better opportunities that come with either job or opportunities for studying. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me…Read More

    Fatima commented on the post, Domestic Violence

    Dear Angelina:
    I am amazed by your post “Domestic Violence” because you give an understanding of the situation many people experience every day. Situations like those that involve domestic abuse is what we should think about because some people think that is something normal which is not. One sentence that stood out to me is “Physical abuse can…Read More

    Fatima commented on the post, Car Accidents

    Dear Jennifer :
    I am amazed by your post, “Car Accidents,” because you express the reasons for drivers to be safe for themselves and also for pedestrians or other cars. Every driver needs to know about car accidents and how to prevent those accidents but also talking about stuff that could happen like wounds or any other serious thing.

  • Hello Dayanara,
    I am in shock with your essay “Stop prescribing addicting opioids/painkillers
    ” because I’ve read your documentary and learned a lot from it, I did not realize that those medicines are just like drugs and can be as addictive as the actual drugs. As I read throughout this text I realized that we are being conducted to getti…Read More

  • Dear Kelly
    I am amazed by your post “Why do people protest with looting & violence?” because throughout your post I thought to myself why are people acting with violence when protesting? and your post gives an example of those. People now days think that acting with violence will get them what they need or what they are looking for. There is no…Read More

  • Dear Kheriya:
    I am impressed with your post “Dear people who think doing drugs and gun violence are okay” because it caught my attention on the understandings you give about gun violence and people who get drugged. The points you give about gun violence and people who get drugged, those are not in their right state of mind. One of the sentences…Read More

    Is a smartphone affecting us?

    Young people are mostly the ones who are more into smartphones and technology. It is not completely true that smartphones are a bad thing, they have many advantages which help people in life making a lot of things easier....

      I am interested in your post, “Is the smartphone affecting us ,” because I really want to know if smartphones are changing how we think and how we do things. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “ Things like this make a big impact on what we are used to with technology. Thinking about it before technology things were considered easier even though it took more time to do things.” I think this is important because before smartphones , people would focus more on doing things for they life , but now smartphones are taking that away. Another sentence that Iiked was: “Young people are mostly the ones who are more into smartphones and technology.” This stood out for me because younger kids are using social media which can be a bad thing because a lot of people do bullying online so that affects younger kids.
      I do agree with you that young kids are the most who use smartphones, One reason I say this is because most of the young people in my family has a smartphone ,Another reason I agree with you is that things were easier before smartphones
      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because… you write about things that is happening right now , and things that are facts

    • Dear Fatima,
      I was very intrigued by your post “Is a smartphone affecting us” because this is a topic young people try to avoid including myself. Many older people believe phones are affecting the younger generation because of how society is now. Although, phones may be a great source and help us if we’re lost or just in need of a friend to talk to it takes up lots of our time. It also changed us in a really bad way it can sometimes lead to cyberbullying or even insecurities because of the standards needing to be met. In my opinion, smartphones has affected us in good and bad ways.
      Hope to hear more about your future posts- Litzy

    • Dear Fatima,
      I found your post “Is a smartphone affecting us?” interesting and found that you made some really good points. I agree that because the smartphone has made many aspects of life easier we no longer know how to manage certain things in our day to day lives. I think that because most young people are addicted to their phones myself included we forget to appreciate the little things in life and the things that are right in front of us. We don’t realise that there is more to life than what’s on our phone screen or what we post on social media.
      I also agree with you that children had a better childhood before smartphones and technology took over. Children would play outside with friends and use their imagination. Nowadays children would rather stay inside and play on their consoles, tablets, or their phones. They will never get to experience staying out until dark running around with their friends enjoying the fresh air and letting their imaginations run wild.

  • Dear Anonymus;
    I am amazed by your post “Living without papers”, because of the fact that you have the courage to tell your family history and how hard is for some immigrants living in the United States. As you said in your story for immigrants life is harder and they have to work harder to have the things they need to provide for their…Read More
