  • Hi Mason,
    I really liked your post. I do agree with you that teachers and students need to learn what to do in these type of situations and how to react to it. However I do think that we need to have some patrol in schools because it is a another safety part. I am interested in what the government will do to solve this problem.

    I really like your post on mental illness. I believe mental illness is a major problem in the society today, therefore it is a great research topic to write about. I really like how you talked about different websites that could help people and families who are experiencing mental illness. One interesting point that you brought up was music…Read More

    • Dear Katie, I love the research piece that you constructed above. The piece that you have written has educated me on the different types of surgical amputations that can be performed. I also can’t wait for you to share your story with having the traditional procedure and then getting the Earth procedure as a revision story. Thank you very much for educating me on this topic. nice work.

    • Katie, this post is really interesting and very educational on the idea of these types of amputations. I believe that your story for the traditional procedure will be a great addition to this post. This was really a great post.

    • Katie, you picked an amazing topic to research and you yourself have first hand experience which will give your research paper something that most people can’t bring to theirs. I personally didn’t know that there was more than one amputation surgery. After reading your writing I would agree with you and say that the Ertl procedure is best. Great writing.

    • This was very educational. Prior to reading, I had no background knowledge of amputations. You wrote in an easy to understand way but also included detail about the procedure. It was also very interesting that you included a personal connection to this topic. Very well done.

    • This topic is cool, since if the Ertl method proves to be the best method for amputations then maybe amputations will no longer hinder people in their lives. It is very well written since it describes the background of the Ertl method and how it works, and you also connect to your own life which makes this post compelling.

    • I think it’s really cool how deep of an interest you took in something that can be so important to others. All of the important and significant facts that you had were all very educational and I’m glad you got them from a reliable source so that I can count on them. Besides that I like how you included a little bit of history in the development of amputee’s.

    • Experiencing amputation can be a life changing experience. A fake limb is never the same as the original. I hope one day, we can achieve the creation of regeneration for lost limbs, which will be especially useful for many veterans of war.

    • Dear Katie, It is great to hear about a topic like this, especially from someone who has had a personal experience with this. It was also great that you included your research. I think it is so amazing that people who have limbs amputated and then a surgery seem to do so well with their new lifestyle so I think that in this domain the medical field is really progressing! Some people in the para Olympics are even better or faster than those in the regular Olympics because of how well their new limbs and recovery work for them!

    • Katie, this is a great research piece. It is informative, well written and you have good sources. I can tell this is a topic you care about, and you put in the effort to research it. Before reading I knew next to nothing about surgical amputations, and now you helped me become more educated on them. I look forward to reading more about your own experience, and I will make sure to read the next thing you write about this topic. Good job!

    • Katie, this article gives a short and very informative explanation about amputations. Not only did you provide information about both methods but you included a personal experience. It helped make the issue more than just a medical article but an informative article that is easy to understand for someone who has never been exposed this topic. Great job!

  • Dear Ellisandra,
    Thank you so much for commenting on my post. Yes, I do agree with you that amputees in other countreis should have better access to prosthetics. I am glad that you are interested in technology and science because that would be a great career for you to go into, since it always changing!

    • Katie, thank you for sharing. I have never heard of the Erl procedure. I have seen amputees but I had no idea what the procedure or system was for it. I think that amputees should be more easily accessible especially in other countries who have people who need an amputee. Technology and science advances always intrigue me because there always new findings and advancements.
      Thanks for sharing!
