    • Dear Kimberly,

      I am sad about your post because of “The Central Park Five” because I feel like these people were wrongfully convicted and were sentenced for no reason. I feel like they were only chosen for their skin tone and were just being discriminated against the police. This shows how corrupt the justice system was years ago.

    One sentence that stood out to me was “A person undergoes many thoughts about themselves based on society’s so-called ‘st…Read More

  • Dear Ava, 
    I was very intrigued by your post “Zoos do more harm than good” because i completely agree with the fact that it is very fun and entertaining for us as humans to go and see these animals, but we never think about the animals themselves. I believe that animals belong in their natural habitat and that they shouldn’t be kept in cages in…Read More
