  • Hello Paige!

    I love how you chose this topic because I feel that this topic is not discussed nearly enough. When you said, “ Language has the amount of power that people allow it to have”, that hit so close to home. In middle school, I was bullied very badly. These years of pain were torture, but I learned the exact comment you made through thi…Read More

    • Julia, I like how you compared texting to speaking in person. It helps to add contrast between the two to help understand how much more personal verbal communication is. I liked your article a lot. I feel that it had great info and you provided plenty of real life examples that helps the reader get a sense of what you are discussing.

  • I love how you discussed this issue about women and the stereotypes that go along with their clothing for practices and their uniforms during games. I feel that girls who play a variety of different sports all have this problem in common.

    • I really like how you ask questions within your post to get readers more involved. I agree with your reasons on why empathy is so important because it truly does affect everyone’s lives and how we interact with each other. Overall, you’re information is unique and very well said.

    • I enjoyed how you explained the views of COVID being a single sided story and then related it back to having empathy. I agree with only reading one news article, being a single sided story, because that site may only include their views, opinions and hope for the future without gaining a true knowledge of the topic by seeing every perspective regarding COVID-19.

Also i love how you explained “ Empathy is a key way to connect with the people around us because it shows them that we care about them and the situation that they are in”. That we do connect with people when we show empathy for people because not many people understand one another.

    • Dear Julia,

      I like how you show what people are doing during the corona virus, how it makes people feel

    • Dear, Julia

      I agree we need to learn about this virus and we need to discuss with people to learn more and talk about coronavirus and also I think we need to stop making this virus political because that why we can’t have an
      in-depth discussion about this virus because people start to argue.

    I like how you discussed what each person can do in this situation. These mothers need to feel that they are supported in their decisions, and it is up to us to give that support. We can do anything from donating money to shelters with these women living in them to donating clothes and diapers.
