I agree with your post ¨Leaders, A Letter about Teanagers¨ because People in our society should be aware of what they inflict onto us as a community it will also inflict with our future. One sentence that stood out to me a lot was where you said,¨The people elected should set up new laws that would lead to less violence¨. I agree it would be nice to have laws that don't lead to much violence as we have now because it can get out of hand and if we keep going with this pattern it will be life threatening in the future. Thank you for writing! I look forward to seeing what you post next about our problems in society!
I agree with your post because that’s what exactly happening in Oakland and in other places. I mostly agreed with you when you said “As a teenager in America there are teenagers 14-19 that are dying by drama, police brutality, and school shootings” because all people want to do now is fight and kill each other over stupid stuff, when they can just talk it out. Another point I agree on is when you said “For the police, they should be trained better so that they are more patient”. This is so true, police don’t even give people a chance to speak their mind, they just want to beat on them, kill them, or put them in jail. So I appreciate everything you said, it’s important that we talk about this piece + you should keep sharing more comments about situations like that.
I am interested in your post because I agree that as a country, we need to unite together and fix these terrible issues, but in a peaceful way. One thing that you said that stood out to me is ” As a teenager in America there are teenagers 14-19 that are dying by drama, police brutality, and school shootings. I think the leaders of America should prioritize fixing the violence especially in places like Charlottesville and Oakland.” I think this is very intelligent because there really are so many innocent people dying and we HAVE to do something to fix it. Your essay reminds me of a paper I just wrote in my American Literature class, “What it means to be American”. In that paper, I also wrote about how fixing our problems in a peaceful way is the best solution. Thank you for sharing your project. I look forward to seeing more of your work because You are a great writer and have great ideas!
This is such an inspiring, great idea. I agree with the idea of bringing the government into play to downsize violence throughout the world. There are so many beautiful brilliant minds on this earth, that don’t deserve to be killed under these circumstances, and it needs to be fixed.
One thing you said that stand out to me is ” people should be treated equally, all races.” I think this is interesting because I never really hear anyone say that I understand where you coming from with that because know days its been a lot people that don’t deserved to die has died. `
One sentence you wrote that stand out to me is “In America there are teenagers 14-19 that are dying by drama, police brutality, and school shootings.I think the leaders of America should prioritize fixing the violence especially in places like Charlottesville and Oakland.” I think this is a really powerful message and very true because police aren’t doing anything to stop this situation from occurring in any public schools.Thanks for your writing i look forward to seeing what you write next time.
Dear John Penitani,
My name is Elizabeth and I agree with you and I believe your ideas about having police man being trained to be more patient, changing the laws about the guns and having elected leaders to help immigrants. One sentence from your caption that stood out to me was “I think the leaders of America should prioritize fixing the violence especially in places like Charlottesville and Oakland”. This sentence caught my attention because it really shows that you had been thinking of a change of improvements that would be very helpful. Also how you were explaining the different plans or systems that could change for improvement really showed how you want to make a change to help keep people safe.Thank you for writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because I believe that you really care about peoples safety and the topics you choose to talk about to make a change are very real.
i am intrigued with your article because it gives people insight from a teenagers point of view of what is really going on in the world.One thing that really stands pout to me is when you said ” I think the leaders of America should prioritize fixing the violence ” I think this is a intelligent quote because it will be a solution to what can help stop or put a stop to all of the violence the USA is facing today .
I strongly agree with your post because teenagers especially, don’t deserve to experience this brutality. When you wrote “As a teenager in America there are teenager 14-19 that are dying by drama,police brutality,and school shootings” Teens deserve to enjoy their lives and not experience these dramatic experiences.
I agree with your ideas about banning firearms to keep people safe. when you talked about police brutality made me feel like nobody is safe from the police because they have the power to do anything they want with minor consequences.
I agree with your statement on what you want to see the future for America to look like. Our elected officials must take initiative on spreading peace and learning how to accept diversity and acceptance. As you have stated in your post, too many teenagers are dying due to brutality, hate crimes, and of bullying. Us citizens must stand in solidarity to protest against this idea of hate and violence. Peace and acceptance is what America currently in in need of.
Hey my name is una havea, from fremont high school. I like how you took time to do this. Do you think it is okay for police to use violence against people with less power? I agree with you when you said you want the future to be beautiful
This is a youth-powered social network 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.
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.
