    • Dear Lesly:

      I am impressed by your post, “Mental Health of Athletes,” because it contains many good information about the things that we don’t really see in athletes. There might be times were mostly everyone assumes that all athletes are okay and that they don’t really struggle.

      One sentence that stood out for me is: “But they are human too and they have feelings and emotions.” I think this is important because everyone has feelings but there are some people who don’t really show them.

      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because I like how you were able to understand these type of problems. It is important for those athletes to keep expressing their feelings in order for them to get more help.

    I am interested with your post “To protect Black women and save America from itself, elect Black women” because its inspiring to see that black women are taking a stand. Its inspiring to see that they are chasing after their dreams to accomplish them. Women have been through so much and its good to see that more black women are…Read More

    • Dear Lesly,
      I am impressed by your post, ” Should schools be allowed to check your social media?” because that is a very interesting question. From the example, you mentioned a young girl being upset for not making the cheerleading team and posting a video with profanity. She showed her form of frustration, anger, and madness she was expressing herself. And for doing that she got suspended because the school inferred with the video and believe she should be suspended for it.

      I think what the girl did was express herself. Although I don’t agree with her form of expressing her frustration I can say it is common in teenagers. She was upset and that is understandable. The young girl has the right to express herself and has the right to freedom of speech. I believe that school should not have gotten involved because as you mentioned, ” It was out of school and not on a school device, where and when this post was made. There was no threat or bullying to a specific person.” Therefore how come the school suspended her? Schools should not be allowed to check kids’ social media posts I believe that it is something private and out of authorities’ hands unless there is danger intended.

      Thank you for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because we share the same opinion of schools not being allowed to check our social media posts.

    • Dear Lesly,

      I am impressed by your post, ” Should schools be allowed to check your social media?” because it’s a good question to ask any person. For a example, you mentioned a young girl who was upset of not making the cheerleading squad and was posting a video that has profanity. So, she show the form of frustration that she was working on, the anger, and the madness that she been hassing and was expressing herself. And for doing that but she got suspended because the school inferred with the video that she made and now believe she should be suspended for the video that she created.

      One sentence that you wrote that stands out to me was “She was upset about this and made a post that had curse words and had her middle finger up”. I think in my opinion about this sentence that it was sad that this girl didn’t make it to a cheerleader team and she decide to create a video so the school or the coach could know how the little girl feels of not making it to a varsity cheerleading squad.

      Thank you for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because we share the same opinion of schools not being allowed to check our social media posts.

  • Dear Jonathan,

    I am invested to your post, “What happened to all the stuff?” because the pandemic has affected our lives in many ways. There are many things people need that they haven’t been able to purchase. It a big crisis having many items that we need, being on low stock.

    One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “ It was h…Read More
