I am intrigued by your post because you write about how we are allowed to practice our first amendment when it comes to standing up to the flag or national anthem. It’s a way to show what you believe in peacefully and people should accept that.

I am interested in your informing post because the solutions that you presented are simple yet can make an impact in global warming and pollution. However, I still wonder if making these changes will affect the economy in any way, either in a positive way or not.

This is a youth-powered social network that was started in 2003 by a group of teachers from local sites of the National Writing Project.
We merged several earlier blogging projects. We have found that there are many advantages to bringing students together in one site that lives beyond any particular class. It's easier for individual students to read and write about their own passions, to connect with other students, comment on each other's work, and create multimedia posts for each other. Further, it's been exciting for us to pool our knowledge about curriculum, connected learning, and digital literacies.
If being part of such a community makes sense to you, we invite you to join us. We welcome all youth and any teacher interested in having students publish online and participate in the give and take of a social network like Youth Voices.
