  • Dear Irvin,
    I enjoyed reading your letter, and am impressed you are taking action for something that you believe in. I hope that you hear back from whoever you hope to reach at General Motors, and make sure to offer alternatives to fuel burning cars as mentioned above. Re read and fix some grammatical errors and I’m sure this will be a very…Read More

    Nathaniel,
    I thoroughly enjoyed reading you article “American Means Eagles”. You have a gripping style of writing, that entices readers to continue on till the end. I especially like how you used the description of an Eagle as a parallel to the hard work and the initiative of the American people. Here is a historical account of how the Eagle…Read More

  • Thank you Itzel, for a very interesting piece. The use of multiple outside sources are well synthesized into your argument and helped add supplementary points that made your writing very concise and intriguing. I agree with your points about really anything can be a distraction, and how there is no penalty for just hurting someones feelings.…Read More

    James commented on the post, The open eye

    Ajonea –
    I love this poem. The title caught my eye and I am so glad I clicked on it. Your analogy with the “open eye” is remarkable and this poem really shows how a few words can speak a thousand truths. I especially like how you ended your poem with “The world kinda needs you”, it stands out from the rest of the poem and leaves the reader with a…Read More

    James commented on the post, Respect

    Britney,
    I really appreciated this article and enjoyed reading your perspective on the ideas of respect. I agree with your basic ideas of respecting people who give you respect, and think that this would build solid relationships founded on mutual respect between two people. I feel your article is blunt, but honest and I respect that. I hope to…Read More

    • This work was very intriguing to read. I was surprised at the facts you gave. Are you in support of or against prop 2? Good work!

  • Thanks for the article Ruby, Vaccinating is an interesting topic not just because of the debate, but also due to it’s necessity in playing a larger role for the safety of the general public. An extremely interesting piece information you included above is the statistic about adverse effects of vaccinations being less likely than being struck by…Read More

  • Jean Carlos,

    Thank you for taking the time to tackle such a pressing, yet seldom talked about issue. Even since when I was born I feel that I have seen an increase in depression among many people our age, and its a problem with few answers. Where I am in Utah the depression rate is far higher than the national average and this is actually…Read More

    James commented on the post, Soccer is Life!

    Natalia,

    This sounds like a gripping book and I like how you stated your point about being able to appreciate the challenge and skill in the sport without personal experience. Being able to appreciate the passions of others without having the experiences of them, is a valuable life skill and is a respectable trait. I’m glad you enjoyed the book…Read More

    Jack,

    This is a very well written out paragraph that addresses many interesting ideas, but I like the main theme of freedom of speech that you present. Americans can tend to be very polarized on different ideas, but in general I agree with what you’re saying that the only thing we agree on is to disagree. There’s no problem with this as long as…Read More

  • Bryan,

    I really like your shadow box! I too play soccer and know how it is a big part of your life. I like the medal and other soccer related items but I also really like the quote you added in the bottom corner about persevering through difficult life situations. The attitude of instead of “Why me” but “Try me” is smart and I will remember that…Read More

  • David,

    These ideas are extremely thought provoking, Its one of those things you think about at night and it keeps you up. I liked your ideas and writing more than just surface level ideas. Obviously everyone is gonna have different outlooks on why they are here in this time, your ideas on predetermination were also interesting. I hope to hear…Read More

  • Hailey,
    There are many different viewpoints on this article and it is an interesting debate. However I disagree with how you have built your argument, the first statement of school shootings “increasing in popularity” was immediately off putting for the simple reason that the word “popularity” should never be acomponied with such a tragedy. Also…Read More
