    • Dear litzy i am very impressed about your post “Dog training” Something that i really liked was that you dont really need to train a dog but that it would be best for the owner or owners. I also liked that you said “They question whether they should train their dog to be friendlier with strangers or to be more direct with the people that are eager to touch their dog” i believe that whether the dog isnt trained it can still be friendly but that all depends on the dog as well. Something that stood out to me was that was either you should train a dog or you dont.
      Thank you litzy . i look forward to see what you will write next.

    • Dear Litzy I liked how you talked about how a dog doesn’t really need to be trained to be friendly with other people or even with the owners. I liked how you said that you need to warn the people who are trying to pet your dog that to be careful because he might growl, bark, or may even bite. Something that stood out to me was that you gave your opinion and said that if you are able to afford someone to train your dog then you should go ahead and train it. I look forward to what you will write again.

    • Yes, I think Covid-19 vaccines should be mandatory due to the fact that they can’t stop the spread. According to your post, it was sort of biased due to the fact you gave your personal thoughts and mutual feelings about the situation. I disagree with you since I believe that when taking the vaccines, grants you immunity to the virus, and you as a person helps stop the spread of the virus.

      One sentence that stood out to me was, ” However the vaccines only have the potential to end the pandemic if enough people take them to stop covid-19. ” I like this sentence because you acknowledge that these vaccines do in fact have the potential to end the pandemic, so why not make it mandatory. I believe the vaccines have the potential and will stop the spread of the virus.

      Thank you for your personal thoughts upon the vaccine, but overall it should be because slowing the spread is essential to go back to normal life.

    • Hello Litzy, I enjoyed reading through the stats of cases and how you expressed the two different sides of the type of stance on the situation of COVID-19 vaccines. It’s also interesting reading your thoughts on the situation, I think the answer to this is somewhat subjective depending on the person something that intrigued me from your post was: “Do you think the COVID-19 vaccine should be mandatory?” Regarding your question, do I think that we should track down people and inject them forcibly? No. Should I agree that individuals should be allowed to have access to certain facilities (hospital work, public schools, etc.) unless they have a valid medical excuse not to do so? Yeah, of course. Anyways, I enjoyed read the stats and your thoughts on the whole COVID-19 vaccination situation, as well as the question you left off with at the end of your post. I hope to see what other opinions you have.

    • hello litzy, i believe that covid 19 vaccines should not be mandatory due to the fact that we dont know how its going to work and all the risk that we are taking this vaccine. Everything that you said was pretty good because theres many risks taking this vaccine because one reason is that it only lasts 6 months and after that 6 months you got to take the vaccine again over and over. So we dont know if its really good for us or not. Some that stood out to me was when you said that if we get the vaccine one it will stop the spread but really we dont know what the outcome of that is going to be. But thank you for you thoughts about that it should be mandatory but i really dont think so.

    • Dear Litzy,
      I am intrigued to your post and i agree that there should be paid sick days because you mentioned, ” I believe that paid sick days are very important especially because of the circumstances we are in at the moment.” In these moments is when we need to get paid for sick days because we are having a difficult times and were not use to this situation.
      Sincerely Rosa

    • Dear Litzy,
      I am interested in your post because it highlights the benefits of welcoming immigrants to America. I like how you mention that immigrants “come with nothing and have to deal with the barrier of a foreign language.” This is important because I think that many people do not understand the difficult challenges faced by many immigrants. Your post is a good reminder that immigrants provide many benefits to America. Thanks for your post, and I look forward to seeing what you write next because you have shown insightful ideas in this post.

    • i agree with her because covid-19 is a global disease that many people have died from that disease and that is why i agree with her and also because she has accused economic problems. in the city the total of cases are 458k in new york and the total of death 32,696.

    • i agree with her because covid-19 is a global disease that many people have died from that disease and that is why i agree with her.

    • Hello there litzy i strongly agree with you. I don’t believe that there will be a covid-19 vaccine soon. I think its going to take another year or months or so because it is not easy to get a vaccine because it needs to be make sure that this vaccine is going to be effectedly and succesfully to the people. Also theres been so many death all around this world so its not easy right now. This global disease that’s going all around the world very dangerous. Do i think that everyone would want to take the covid-19 vaccine umm thats a good question i believe that not everyone would not want to take this vaccine for the coronavirus.
