  • Lilly, I find your article very important in these times. With extremism on the high, knowing the signs of it and how to avoid it is crucial.
    If you were to perhaps include some stories on its dangers, it would add a level of narrative that would be real engaging for all those who read it.

  • Amanda, thank you for pointing out how police brutality can be seen the world over. Often, in our current media and geopolitics, most news is seen as American-centric, and more often than not, certain problems seen in other countries go unnoticed since they don’t get the media attention here in the states.

      Overall, this is a fascinating and diverse issue! Thanks for writing!
