    Keily,
    The points you brought up in this post are valid and I think this is one of the most discussed topics in today’s world. Although the world has come a very long way in terms of women’s rights and equality between genders, there is still a lot to be done. For example, women are still not paid as much as men are and there are still certain…[Read more]

    Hello,

    Your post was very interesting and eye-opening to read. I have dealt with many instances where my trust has been broken and the quote that you said in the beginning (“Trust takes years to build, seconds to break, and forever to repair”) was something that I connected to. I think that there have been a lot of cases, big and small, that…[Read more]

  • Hello Cassie,

    I enjoyed reading your post. I believe that family and parental relationships are very important in the way that we (teenagers and children) are brought up. The sentence you wrote “The relationship between a child and their parent is one that affects both the physical, social, and emotional development of the child” is something I…[Read more]

  • Hello Alani,

    Your post was very interesting and insightful. The point you made about “America used to actually care about things for the right reasons, but their motives have changed” was really eye-opening for me to read because it made me think about the values and motives that have changed in America.

  • Hello Emmet. I am a senior at Judge Memorial High School. Your post is incredibly important to me for a lot of reasons. The discussion on mental health has increased in recent years, as many adolescents are starting to understand how crucial it is to speak up, however, there is still a lot more talking that needs to be done. For some reason,…[Read more]

  • Stella, your points are so strong. The part you talked about the Chinese proverb: “Tell me and I’ll forget. Show me and I’ll remember. Involve me and I’ll understand” really stuck with me. This is so important for colleges to consider, as many people haver different learning and remembering capabilities. The standardized tests seem to be more re…[Read more]

  • Americans are becoming more and more materialistic as the years go on. The United States is becoming “a nation obsessed with shopping and buying unnecessary products” (Khurram). Before we developed the need to

      I found this to be a very interesting idea and a concept that definitely rings true in this day and age. So much of status is equated with wealth so it’s no surprise people want to accumulate more items that make them feel ‘important’ at least until they look at their bank statements haha! I’m curious if you yourself live a minimalistic life or if you’re attempting to? If so I think you might enjoy this article:
