Adelle, Thank you for sharing your post. I found your ideas to be very interesting. I agree with your idea that "I want to be a good person, but I don’t think religion is the only way to become one." I also believe that one should have to subscribe to...

Oliver, Great post! Your post talks about some interesting topics. I agree with your argument that less harmful drugs such as weed should be decriminalized. I also agree with your ideas about how our congressmen should represent the people's opinions. I think that in your next post you should talk...

Ed, I believe that you are correct in your stance on parenting young adults. I agree that parents should watch over their teenagers and let them make their own mistakes. I have witnessed the negative effects of bad parenting myself. The kids that haven't been given the chances to make...

Jaden, Your poem was amazing! Your use of vivid imagery was well done. I had a clear picture of everything that you were talking about in my head. You also did a great job on telling me how much you love nature through your poem. It is obvious to me...

Great post Ed! I believe that you are correct in your stance on overprotective parenting. I have witnessed the negative effects of overprotective parenting myself. The kids that have been overprotected seem to be very scared to answer questions or solve problems without the approval of an adult. They...

Great post Thomas! I have a friend who's dad is a truck driver for Shipex. He has brought this same topic up in conversation and said that the idea of self driving trucks doesn't scare him that much. The reasoning he gave was that the change wouldn't happen in...

Saoronn, I agree with you in believing that having the top officials speak about what they hate other people is a good solution for this hate in our country. I think that another good solution would be to follow the idea of "If you don't have anything nice to say,...

Good Job on your shadow box Nevin. I like how you incorporated your family's history and your counter narratives about who your people are.

Good job James. I found this article to be interesting because of the use of historical documents. You should look at because it gives a lot of important information about your topic.

I agree with you that police brutality is an ongoing problem. Your thesis statement is too broad. You need to be more specific about what types of misconducts the police are committing. For your sources you should include some of the many supreme court cases in the past 20...
