    Hi Ana,
    I agree that neighborhood safety is very important and is not talked about enough.I grew up in a relatively safe area where I could play outside and go bike-riding with my brother.

    • I also think this is important to consider following shootings. The victims should really be the focus. No shooter should be given any more attention than we can help, because it humanizes people who really don’t need to be humanized. Well said.

    • I liked how you highlighted the fine line between telling the story and respecting the victims. It’s is tough to know when something is crossing the line. But one thing is for sure, the media shouldn’t glorify and try to make audiences sympathize with a killer.

    • I thought this post was really interesting. It made me think of Ted Bundy, who was often praised for his looks and sex appeal, when this should be the last thing that people are thinking about. It also reminds me of the show “You” on Netflix. The show is about a man who stalks and manipulates a girl into loving him, and later kills her friends, family, and even herself. A lot of the feedback I saw about this show was about how good looking the main actor was, instead of how sick he was.

    Hi Jada,
    I think that music is a beautiful way to cope. I have gone through a number of personal problems and listening to and playing music is one of my favorite way to manage my emotions. I’m so glad that you feel the same way. I look forward to reading more of your beautiful writing.
