• Dear Mrs.Reed,
    I found this post to be really interesting and enjoyable to read. You stated and defined the words that you wanted to present and also told us what they meant back then, I like and also agree to the fact that the definition of an American has changed over time and that we come together in times when we have a common goal. This is…[Read more]

  • Dear Sage,
    To start off, I liked how you told us your claim and the added a counter point in order to keep your readers interested. The whole time I was reading the article I was looking for ways you might say that technology was a negatively impacting our society and I’m glad that you proved that we benefit more from it. I agree that we have…[Read more]

  • When mass murders and shooting happen, we tend to ask ourselves why this happened. Why and what would cause an individual to go out into a public place and cause harm to others they have no relation to. We often

      Dear Fred,
      Nice post. I really like the angle you took at analyzing the influences surrounding those who commit such acts. This hits one of the apparent roots of the problem, something that we can all do in our lives to help people feel included and cared for. The line “kids that shoot up schools are not loners, the misconception of them being loners is wrong, most kids will try to join many groups but what triggers their anger is that they at almost every time fail. They become rejected…” is an idea that could have a strong impact if spread appropriately. Another strong debate surrounding mass shootings and homicides in general is the mass availability of guns in America. This article speaks on that topic -https://www.npr.org/sections/13.7/2017/10/09/556627468/what-influences-attitudes-toward-gun-reform

    • Hi Fred,
      I really liked your article, and it brings up an important issue in our country today. I thought it was interesting the way you approached this issue, and hitting one of the main concepts. Everyone needs to feel loved and cared for. And I also liked the part when you said “kids that shoot up schools are not loners, the misconception of them being loners is wrong, most kids will try to join many groups but what triggers their anger is that they at almost every time fail. They become rejected…” it really touches home, and shows that these people do not feel welcomed, and instead of taking their anger out on a teddy bear, they decide to take it out o people, causing lives to be taken. I found a article relating mental illness to homicide, and I think you should check it out, https://mentalillnesspolicy.org/consequences/1000-homicides.html. Thanks for sharing this with us!

    • Fred,
      I really enjoyed this post. I think that this is very relevant today because of all the mass shootings that have happened. I liked how you gave clear evidence on why these people are doing what they do. They aren’t just doing it for fun, but because they actually have a problem with what has happened to them in the past. I agree with you when you said that everyone needs to be loved and cared for because if we all get along and make everyone feel like they belong in this world, maybe we can finally start fixing this problem. Here is an article that I thought you might like: http://serendip.brynmawr.edu/bb/neuro/neuro03/web2/njackman.html

    • Hi Fred,
      I really enjoyed your post and am happy you chose such an important issue in todays society, especially in the United States. Your first paragraph was great because you tied it into a current event but left your questions to be vague enough that they could be used for any issues in today’s world. The information you provided in your second paragraph was useful because it helped me in understanding why someone would do something so violent and the underlying issues that person may have. And you closing statements were a nice reminder that the simple act of treating someone with respect can go a long way. https://www.theatlantic.com/health/archive/2016/06/untangling-gun-violence-from-mental-illness/485906/

  • Dear K’Chelle,
    this was a very informative article. Your views of brutality really make me think about what is wrong with our justice system. Police officers are meant to protect and service our communities, not harass the colored citizens. Maybe in the future you can incorporate more views from other writers and people who have experienced brutality.

  • Hey Kayden,
    I found this post to be very interesting and unique. I found out to be the Michelangelo because he relates and reflects a lot of my personality’s and characteristic’s. I would of loved to be Donatello just because of how he is. I feel like this post goes deeper into what your persona tells you about yourself.

    • Fred,
      This is a very informative post and it needs more attention. How many people do you think go through their life and think to themselves that people only need money to be happy? Too many. But I especially like the part where you say we need intimate contact with people, because that is what makes life worth living, having someone to share your life with. Even the most successful people admit that there’s more to life than money: http://www.businessinsider.com/how-9-incredibly-successful-people-define-success-2014-5?op=1/#llionaire-richard-branson-believes-success-is-about-engagement-6. Thank you for the post.

    • Dear Fredrick,

      This post is great and states so many true things. People just think that money is the key to happiness, but that is not true. I really like the part where you said, “In order to be happy, we need to be the authors of our own life story.” I really like that because you get to make your own story, it’s your life. To be happy you need to create your story. It’s a really cool way to think about. You are doing great.

      Sincerely,
      Natalie

    • My dearest Fredrick. Have you personally experienced this “Pursuit of Happiness” ? Your article seems to be personal in a way that lets the audience feel close. Love the statistic you choose to use. I also agree with the money ideology, that is so true-money doesn’t make us happy.

      -Ethan H

    • I completely agree with everything you said. This was a very strong article backed up with a lot of evidence. I agree that money doesn’t define happiness. I understand that you can be unhappy if your basic needs are not met, but if those needs are being fulfilled, you have the ability to lead a happy life.

  • Jorge,
    Your topic is a very good and accurate topic. I like it because this problem has been going on for many year, centuries.

    I really found your topic very interesting because I am a football player. when I was injured, though I never noticed it but there was a rush from everyone wondering how fast my recovery would take and how many games I was going to miss.

    I am very much interested in this topic. Global warming is a real thing and we need to realize the effects its causing on our planet. I agree that “With the increase of CO2 in the atmosphere it is trapping the sun’s heat thus heating up Earth.” This cause of global warming makes it hard on the planet, increases dangers of climate change a…[Read more]

    I really liked reading about this topic.

    I agree that Space Explorations should founded because it would benefit us in many ways. Your said “Space research helps us understand our own world, which can in turn help us protect it”.

    • I really like this entry Fred. It is cool how you care about a current issue you like this and how you want to make a change in our society. I really liked the way you wrote and the words you chose. I found this cool article that I think that you would like. Here it is https://www.nrdc.org/stories/global-warming-101.
