    I am highly interested in your post, the ” American women Quarters program(2022) because this is very recent news, and the idea of having iconic people of different races and genders that shaped and inspired us not just through politics but as well as arts and acting and many other activities that made such an impact for people…Read More

  • Dear Frankey,

    I am surprised by your post “Voting should it be easy or hard” because i had no idea about the fact that states are making it hard to vote. I believe that voting should be easy as well since we would need all the votes we can get when it comes to making a big decision for the state.

    One quote that stands out to me was “voting is a…Read More

    • Dear Javier,
      I agree with your statement about your post, ” Teens should have the same amount of pay as adults” and how it is completely unfair that teens get paid less just because of their age. Their age should be something we should compare when we are doing the exact same thing as others but getting less payment because we don’t have the title of being an adult.

      One sentence you wrote that stood out to me was “let’s just say for example that you’re at the age of seventeen working and doing the same task as the 20-year old next to you but yet he “earns” way more money than you by the hour just because the 20-year old was legally considered as an adult and you weren’t.”I think this is crucial because that Is so very true to what you just stated. I don’t think that because we don’t have the title of being an adult” we should be paid less, it’s totally unfair.

      Thank you for writing. I look forward to seeing what your write next because I like the way you add questions to your posts. I also like the way how you argue which makes you seem like you know what you are doing.

      -Stefanie Figueroa
