  • Dear Mary :
    I am excited by your post, “Laughter is Beautiful,” because you are not bothered about how people will view you exactly on how you laugh because laughing makes you the happiest.
    One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “When I laugh, I am enjoying life and picking the good things and emphasizing them over the bad. Laugh…Read More

    • Dear Idrissa,

      I am curious about your post, “Loyalty Over Love”, and to why you were aspired to write about the importance between the differences of these two words. I agree with you that loyalty should be a long-term want for relationships with other people. I also agree that loyalty is a sign of respect and it is important to want those who are important to you to have your respect.

      One sentence you wrote that stood out to me is, “Loyalty and love are not the same and never will be.” I slightly disagree with this statement because regarding the differences between these two words I believe that a person’s loyalty comes from within their love for you, so in a way loyalty and love do correlate.

      Thank you for this writing. I look forward to what your next writing is, because I like how you elaborate words that some may find hard to contrast. I would like you to continue writing about your opinions for those who might find your opinions relatable.

    Dear Orlando,
    I am really proud of you about the beat you made because not everyone has the talent you have when it comes to making beats.
    (video/painting/drawing/photograph/collage/work of art/music, called “RPG300,”
    Because most people would love to know how to make beats like you.

  • Dear Heriberto I agree with your post about allowing all animals to be freed because people be Treating animals like they are slaves and killing Them. But you can’t eat meat without killing an animal so therefor many people have reasons for killing animals but you are still right.

    • I agree with you that the government should help homeless people by providing them with food and shelter. Everyone will have their difficult time. The government should help them out of difficulties.

    • Dear Idrissa:

      I am surprised by his publication, “Homeless” I think this is very important because there are many people who have nowhere to live. They also don’t have to eat. I also think that the government should do something to help them.

      One sentence you wrote that stands out to me is “The government should do something about it because many of them are dying of hunger, their everyday job is to wake up and go beg for money and food so they can survive in the street” . I think this is hopeful because by doing so you can give a message to people who also have other people who care about other people who don’t have a place to live or eat.

      Thanks for your writing. I look forward seeing what you write next, because it is very important that other people know about this. Also the government to help these people.

    • Hey Idrissa,
      I totally agree with you that the government should be doing more to support those without homes or ready access to food. But I think this problem is only a result of a bigger societal issue. A large portion of US citizens believes they should get out of their hole by themselves. Individualism is a priority to so many, but I believe that if the US had more socialist laws and thoughts we wouldn’t have as much of a problem with homelessness. Laws that are created to serve the most good to the greatest number of people. Overall well written, but maybe society should help first and force the government to take action.

    • Hey Idrissa! I liked reading your post. I like how you mentioned that everyone makes a mistake in their lives and shouldn’t be punished for it. I just have a question, what if people don’t want the help? what if they like their lifestyle. That’s my only question, but I really liked reading your post! Here is an article that I think you might like! https://www.usich.gov/solutions/

    Dear Derrick,

    I am amazed by your beat work of art & music, called “JazzDanceBeat” because the beat sounds like it’s for enjoyment. and the melodies really make you want to dance, even when you don’t feel like it.

    One part of your song that stands out for me is where the beat flow changes almost every five to 10 seconds because you didn’t wan…Read More

    I am proud of your post, “Football, Basketball, video games,” because you were into positive and negative activities by gambling over video games and you almost die of it back in 2014 so you stopped. I wish the best for you and keep chasing your dream and you might achieve it one day.
