    Hey Erick,

    Thanks for the post. Bullying can really hurt and stereotyping is in that group. Sadly, not enough people speak up. Your post acts as a quick read to stop these terrible acts of aggression. Thanks again!

  • Hey Max,

    Your post was informative and hilarious (a great combination). However, more than anything this was a wake-up call. This is a time that provides us the opportunity to catch up on life. Thank you.

    • You say that the solution is to control where plastic ends up. I agree that it’s important to keep plastic out of the ocean, however I think the issue is far larger and requires a much more radical solution (eliminating certain plastics). I see where you’re coming from by saying that eliminating plastic bottles would put the public health at risk. However, by tackling the problem directly, real progress could be made instead of plastic numbers rising and piling up on our Earth. I think a viable solution would be to use alternatives to plastic made out of biodegradable material, which would address your public health concern and also prove to be more eco-friendly

    • Dear Graham:
      I am intrigued by your post and agree that plastic should be kept out of the ocean. I think there could be an alternative for plastic and it should be made and used more.
      One sentence you wrote that stands out is “There have been a number of bans recently on these plastics and in particular plastic bottles. ” I think they should keep the plastic from entering the ocean as much as they can and start using less plastic. Animals are dying and are filled with plastic because they eat it thinking it is food. I think if this continues there will be animals going extinct and not just sea animals birds are being filled with plastic too.
      Thanks for writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because you made a lot of good points.

    Hey Clayton,

    I really liked your post on the US-Mexico Border wall. You expressed so many positives that a wall would provide when the topic is so negative. Your discussion is a refreshing take on something that has been looked down upon so much. Keeping a positive attitude is so important in our negative world. Even if the wall is ultimately…Read More
