I am interested in post because GMOs in food always caught my attention. I want to see how fast or slow these GMO foods grow.
One thing you said that stands out for me is: “The mandarins ” Cuties ” are also genetically modified and this is a great example of how with genetic engineering you can change the characteristics for exa…[Read more]
The genetic engineering application I decided to use was entertainment, glow in the dark fish. The scientist studied the fish and genetically engineered embryos in the fish to glow in places overtime where an e
Genetic engineering is cheating growth. The scientist fiddle around with DNA to change how things grow. I find is disgusting how its possible to make food bigger than it already is. It make me turn green when i

The bombings that are going on between the United States and Syria is important because many innocent lives are being took away. Bashar Hafez al-Assad is the 19th and current President of Syria, holding the office
Hi, Jaymee, I think being aware of the bombings and why its happening is something lost on this generation and not known by the general public. I feel as if we are so desensitized on when other countries that’s not run by white people get attacked that the tragedy is just let go. Getting notified on why the bombings happen is very important so we don’t support the ignorance that comes with bombing.
Dear Jaymee :
I am happy you wrote about the bombing incident in your” Why does the bombing matter,” post because i believe that there was no need to bomb Syria and create a worldwide incident when america has not had a problem with Syria since 1940. It’s really baffling as to why President Trump would do this now.
One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “It was merely a message; it was a line in the sand; it was America asserting a moral standard; it was to scare Assad; to it was to pivot from Obama’s legacy; it was to end Assad’s reign.” ” I think this is baffling because america should not worry about what Syria does or does not do, they did not care before yet they care now and start bombing Syria, killing over 200 million innocent citizens.
Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next.
The issue about how the United States is targeted to get bombed by North Korea is something that I care about. I arrived this topic because this is what I read about all of the time on social media and on the news

This is a youth-powered publishing platform that was started in 2003 by a group of teachers from local sites of the National Writing Project.
We merged several earlier blogging projects. We have found that there are many advantages to bringing students together in one site that lives beyond any particular class. It’s easier for individual students to read and write about their own passions, to connect with other students, comment on each other’s work, and create multimedia posts for each other. Further, it’s been exciting for us to pool our knowledge about curriculum, connected learning, and digital literacies.
There are over 8,000 posts and over 13,000 comments by young people on the site on topics as diverse as the American Dream, Shakespeare, and sports as well as original poems and stories.
Youth Voices is a platform for youth to write about their interests, both in school and outside of school: what they are reading, what their hobbies or future careers might be, what they enjoy in their spare time. Like all of us, students follow our national leadership and form opinions. They are also welcome to write about those topics as well.
Youth Voices is fully non-partisan and welcomes youth of all types, from all regions, and with all viewpoints. Educators support youth in writing and thoughtfully responding to each other through the use of commenting guides, using tags to show common interests, playlists to support self-guided inquiry; opinions expressed by writers are their own.
If being part of such a community makes sense to you, we invite you to join us. We welcome all youth and any teacher interested in having students publish online and participate in the give and take of a social network like Youth Voices.
