    • Dear Maggie,

      I am interested in your post because… Teen Vaping is something that is very major that is happening in the world right now.Teens should read this post because it is something that can help with any vaping addiction.

      One thing you said that stands out for me is: “envision a world where fewer adults use cigarettes.” I think this is interesting, because… Its showing that Juul is targeting teens and younger adults

      Your post reminds me of something that happened to me. One time with a friend that was actually very into vaping and smoking.I would tell him to quit because it will come back to haunt him and ruin his body.He failed a drug test and was caught and after we talked about it he quit to better himself.

      Thanks for your project. I look forward to seeing what you write next because… This post was very interesting and can help some people

    • Dear Maggie,
      I really enjoyed reading your article on vaping. I picked this one because i liked the photo you chose. You did a good job getting my attention. I also agree with you, vaping is a really big problem among teens. I liked the way you used a lot of facts in your writing. You should share this with other people, like maybe your mayor or something. I look forward to hearing more from you.

    • Hi Maggie,
      Thank you for Your information, I agree that the government has published more and more laws for stoping teen vaping, but it is not enough. Vaping is bad, but there is no way we can stop it, the only way is people themselves should be aware.

    • Dear Maggie:
      I am moved about your post, “Teen Vaping,” because vaping can also harm people just as bad as cigarettes. Companies are also making someones addiction worst by making flavors that taste good.
      One sentence you wrote that stands out to me is: “Although many of the harmful chemicals that are in cigarettes are not in vapes, there are many other other dangerous chemicals in the new products.” I think this is good because some people think that just because vaping does not have tobacco that it can not hurt you but their are still chemicals that can affect your body. Thanks for writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next,because you created a way for others to think about what can affect your body. I feel that you are good at making a topic that people can argue or think about.

    • Hi Maggie! I appreciated your opinion and stance on abortion. I am on the other side of this however. Princeton, an Ivy League School, with some of the most intelligent people have written an article on when a life starts. ( https://www.princeton.edu/~prolife/articles/embryoquotes2.html ) Of course this is opinionated yes, but very scientifically based. But like you said, as long as you respect others for giving their opinion, there is always room for canversation. Maybe its the Catholic in me, but I believe every life is valuable from begging where the sperm cell and egg meet, to natural death.

    • Hello Mugga,
      I like the topic you wrote about. I agree with what you said about the political polarization in the U.S. It’s hard to have a friendly conversation with a person from the opposing political view. One thing I noticed with news sources is finding a neutral point of view.
      Here is a cool website that shows the media bias chart for different news sources:

        Thank You so much I’m so happy I am not the only person who feels like it is hard to find un-biased information out there! I’ll be sure to check out the link.
