    • I do not believe that video games are a sport. A sport (in my opinion) requires physical activity. Yes, gaming does involve strategic thinking but so does mathematics. is that a sport? With gaming, people are sitting on their couch staring at a screen with no physical activity involved. I disagree that cheerleading is not a sport because they “don’t compete or do any physical activity” I know girls who do compete in cheerleading competitions and can not see how someone would think there is no physical activity. They are jumping and doing flips and standing on each others shoulders. If that’s not physical activity I don’t know what is.

    • Hi Heidi,
      I am interest with your views in this topic. I play the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive in my free times, I agree with video game is kind of a sport. In my experience in CSGO, people can’t handle it without thousand hours, I have same idea with your views, “Also you would have to practice to get better at it like traditional sports”. The CSGO profession players most of them spend more than 6 hours per day in the practice and the training. You have to pay your attention and your time on it. When you play the game, you’re not only sit there and watch, you move your body and use your brain. In hltv.com, there are competitions and introductions for pros, this also an evidence for e-sport is sport. Back to my experiences, I played more than two thousands hours on CSGO and I trained a lot in it, I played better and better. There are no reason for video game is not a sport. Thank you for your topic and your views, I am excited to see what will you write next. Because your article just brought many useful point on it. They are clear and strong.

    Dear Kaimea,
    I was really intrested in your poem because I can relate to you. I relate to you on certain things like watching PBS kids in the morning while I was getting ready for school. One sentence that you wrote that stood out to me was “I remember people would constantly squish my cheeks.” I can realte to this because I had chubby cheeks…Read More

    • Dear Heidi,
      I impressed by your post “are warning labels on unhealthy foods a good idea?¨because I agree with you I don’t see the point in putting labels on unhealthy food. At the end of the day, people will eat what they want. i mean take my friend for example she eats an unhealthy amount of bacon every other day, she knows this but continues because she loves bacon. so you and I both agree that people already know eating unhealthy food isn’t the best for them but still do it anyway.
      one sentence you wrote that stands out to me is ¨If people are obese then it is on them,¨ I think is well written because it shows your thought process.
      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I’m you’re a good writer and well put together in your explanations.

    • Hello Heidi,
      I found your post very interesting and I also agree with you. As mentioned obesity is a rising problem in the U.S., yet I think putting warning labels on unhealthy foods will only slightly educate some but not solve the problem. The fault falls on both companies and people, it’s a business and completion for companies and people make their own choices as well. Companies can look for ways to make their products healthier, yet I think they may lose sales as healthier products tend to be more expensive than unhealthy foods. I also think eating healthy tends to become a lifestyle and some people get tired of it and go back to their old unhealthy eating habits because it is less of a hassle and cheaper. At the end of the day, I feel like in order to minimize the obesity problem in the country we all need to work together. Thank you for writing Heidi, I hope to see more of your writing soon because your post brought an important issue to the table which needs to be more acknowledged before it gets too far and we can’t go back.

    • Dear Heidi,
      I did not realize how a topic like this can be controversial. Although there are people out there trying to help those dealing with obesity , those same people are responsible for what they consume. Yes warning labels would seem like a reasonable thing to do i agree with the fact that people are aware of the foods that they should not consume. Although that might not be the best way to decrease obesity but there are many other ideas to decrease this problem.

  • Heidi commented on the post, Students & The Pandemic

    I am fascinated by your article “Students and the Pandemic” because I also agree that many teens have changed so much because of the pandemic since they were at home all the time. One sentence that you wrote that stood out to me was “The young teens and adults have had to deal with major changes within this pandemic that has affected them in a…Read More
