A frequent debate that I have noticed is the legalization of Marijuana. I have noticed that this topic of conversation has taken a very popular trend, but…Read More

    • Hi it seems you’ve posted twice. don’t do that next time

    • Your statement on gun control was stated very well. I believe that gun control is a big issue and that guns are getting into the wrong hands. Can you state what your view is on gun control?

    • I think that if anyone was to purchase a gun they should go through training and their records checked so that they don´t have a criminal background that will lead them to harming an innocent person

    • This is interesting good research

    • Gun violence is a huge problem in our society. The fact that gun violence is increasing is very scary. I think one problem is that acquiring a gun is not that difficult. Getting a gun via black market or just getting it from the shop down the street is very easy. That needs to be stopped. There needs to be an increase in gun control and background checks. The illegal supplying of guns and other weapons should be stopped to get guns off the streets. This is a very important issue that needs to be addressed.

    • Dear Markie,
      I am showing my concerns because there is some people that feel the same way about what you wrote in the post.
      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “Many argued that our exercise levels would decrease because sports are sometimes the main source of exercise for most of us.” I think this is true because people would not work out if they didn’t have a favorite hobby to do
      Your post reminds me of how much practice I have to do for football. I practice 2 hours a day and go home to shoot at the gym. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because this connection in my life.

    • Dear,Markie :
      I am intrigued by your post because it had a lot of good points on athletes and school “What would happen if we didn’t have sports” what i liked about it was the points to where you explained how it made athletes feel overwhelmed with playing a sport and doing work in school.
      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “Not only would our health be affected but also our economy” I think this is important because this helps kids with obesity and things and help us all as a whole.
      Another sentence that I was stunned by: “Some cities have pointed out that without the money that is produced from the local sports events, the would be in debt” This stood out for me because sports bring lots of money to our communities and it keeps a lot of kids out of trouble.
      Your post reminds me of something that happened to me. I rememeber when we had a discussion about how they had talked about sports doing us well and our community in after school when they were thinking about stopping after school programs.
      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because this post caught my attention on the way you put sports and school with the right information. I liked it a lot because it showed a lot of ways that school and sports have an effect on how we actually perform in school.

    • Dear Markie, if there weren’t any sports life would be pretty boring…watching sport is entertainment to some people. I agree with all the points stated in your piece.

    • I find your research on sports effect on life in general very interesting and informative. It’s effect on business, obesity rating and society is of without question. I myself one a blog with a similar topic as your text, I focus on the specific sport of basketball and the positive effect it can have on poor societies specifically the repression of gang violence here’s a link to my blog: https://wordpress.com/view/icanhandle444147763.wordpress.com

    • Dear Markie,
      I actually agree with your post “What would happen if we didn’t have sports?” because sports are popular whether you play or not. People enjoy sports by actively participating in them or just watch for entertainment. I personally love sports, I actually play basketball. Playing basketball helps relieve stress from school and it keeps me active. Without sports many lives would be affected, just like right now with our current situation with the Coronavirus it shows how life is without sports. With the whole pandemic, sports were canceled both professional and school sports. Like you said without sports, it causes negative outcomes. Professional athletes basically didn’t have their jobs, students lost their sports season, and others weren’t able to go out and exercise. Thank you for your writing. I look forward to seeing you write next because I like the points you made in your writing. It just shows how we live enjoying something, but when it’s taken away from us we can be physically and emotionally affected.
