    • Dear Juan :
      I am fascinated by your post, “Post Office Trouble?,” because I agree that many people depend on the post office for important things as you mentioned. Now, to see the post office in trouble, many people will begin to panic and there will be a huge delay on many things.
      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “It is frustrating that important incoming mail is being delayed to a crisis such as Covid-19.” I think this is correct because most changes caused by COVID-19 have been frustrating and with a huge impact on the post office, there is bound to be lots of frustration. Many people depend on the post office to deliver and receive important messages, objects, checks, etc., meaning if they don’t there will be frustration.
      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because we share similar ideas on certain things. I like how you address your opinion on important problems we have today.

    • Dear Juan,
      I found this piece quite interesting! Your research on adulthood not only in the US, but in other countries was quite intriguing, and a topic I have never thought about before. I agree with your statement at the end, 18 years old does seem to young to be considered an adult. I think this topic opens up extensive discussions about age and maturity in all sectors of our lives. If one is not mature at 18, why can they still be drafted into the army to fight and die for our country? Contrastingly, if age is just a number, why is the voting age nationally 18 when age doesn’t correlate to mental capability? Your writing is quite thought-provoking!
