    • 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 eidi :
      I am impressed by your post, “should the Penny Be Eliminated?” because it’s inciteful to know that’s its affecting our environment and an alternative about how to go about it.
      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “In my opinion, I think the penny should no be eliminated because I think of it as money” I think this is great because we get a clear understanding of where you stand with this and its true every penny counts.
      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I like how straightforward you are when it’s time to give your opinion. the other thing is how you follow that with personal experience

    • Dear Heidi :
      I am fascinated by your post, “Should Covid Vaccines be Mandatory?,” there are 2 answers, and neither is wrong. It is understandable that many fear the vaccine and what is behind it. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “ I believe that the vaccine will control the virus and one day everything can go back to normal.” I think this is fair because at the end of the day, we just want everything to go back to normal. At this point we don’t even know what normal is for us.Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because the idea you had behind this question was valid. I like how you understand both sides of this argument.

    • Dear Heidi,
      I am intrigued by your post ” Should covid vaccines be Mandatory” because I also believe the vaccine should not be mandatory. I feel that anyone should have a choice for this vaccine because we all really don’t know if these vaccines are even good for us or not. Many experts have different opinions on this topic but how do we know who’s right.
      One sentence that you wrote that stood out to me is ” The people are scared to take the vaccine because they don’t trust the government and they don’t want to take it against their will.” I think this is true because so many say bad things about our government.
      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I find these topics interesting and I like how this topic is about what is going on in our world today.

    • Dear Heidi:
      I found your post interesting, because many people around the world, believe the vaccine can contain substances we don’t know about, many people has heard about the government controlling us trough a vaccine or device, I believe that is not true, and we need to rely on the vaccine in order to get out of the pandemic as soon as possible, to return to our normal lives once again.

    • Dear Heidi, I agree with your post and I believe what you are saying is very true. I believe in this state the immigrants are the people who do the worst jobs are get recognized the least. Immigrants are getting paid minimum wage and have the hardest jobs. I hope I hear more from you Heidi, I really enjoyed your statements.

      -Cindy Reynosa

    • Dear Heidi,
      I couldn’t agree more with you. something that was mentioned in your post was ” He writes that American workers don’t need competition from immigrants because due to COVID many Americans have lost their jobs and are currently struggling.” but this has been said even before covid started. and the only thing that I think of when people say this is, wouldn’t it better for America to give jobs to people who are qualified especially since America is so money driven. and on the other hand, like you said most immigrants take jobs that Americans don’t want to do.

    • Turning 18 is officially becoming and adult, but I feel like most 18 year old don’t feel ready to become adults, I’ve seen my 2 brothers and my sister become 18 and they all seemed rather scared of the thought. I like when you said “you are punished severely when you commit a crime and that can affect your life. You no longer are treated like a child anymore” because 18 is the turning point whether the person is ready for it or not.

    • Dear Heidi, I agree with you say in your article about are you considered an adult when you turn 18? For me if you are considered an adult when you turn 18 because you can look for a job and you can start to depend on yourself even if you have a family. Also if you are studying you can have a job at the same time you study when you are 18 years old. I like when you said ”you are severely punished when you commit a crime that can affect your life” because they will no longer treat you like a child and they will treat you as an adult whether you are or not. I believe that are you saying is the reality of life and that for me young people of 18 years old less we would have to behave like adults.

      Thanks for write. I hope to read your next discussion because I really liked your article and would like to read more of your articles.

    • Hey Heidi, I love what you said about being a adult when you turn 18 but are we really? My opinion is if you still live with your parents your not a adult. You go to college and parents send you money for food etc… your not a adult. Yea you will generate money working but honestly a minimum wage job aint going to cut it for you as a student. For me a adult is when someone doesn’t need any help from there family and is able to be stable for the rest of their life. A adult is someone who is old enough to care for themselves rather than having someone care for them.

    • I agree that the age of 18 is the official mark of adulthood based off your points, that you can drive, vote, be enlisted into the military, be on a jury, etc. I feel that the drinking and gambling age limit should be on the same level because if they started to be treated like an adult at the age of 18, you deserve all the adult rights that are given with it. Do you think that the age of adulthood should be raised or lowered?

    • dear Hiede i thought it was very interesting how you put the examples of war in the article. it really showed how much we’ve learned as a country to let history repeat it self.I think it will be a great idea to get ride of the bombs because it will stop them from doing it again.

      my favorite sentence that you wrote was ¨Not only did the U.S. bomb once but twice which was double the sorrow. this is very important because we are the monsters in this topic and should be accepting responsibility and work on banning nuclear power.

      i had a great time reading you post thank you so much i look forward to seeing what you have next thank you.
