This is a beautiful poem Dallanna! I like that you focused this poem on celebrating the wonderful parts of your life, whether they be small like the feeling of home or big like the work that your parents have put into you. The structure of your poem is well...

Dynasty, I think this is a great post because it is so so important to set your goal and strive to achieve them. I love that the focus of this post is on the future because that is what will be important in your life, your past may have...

Emily, this is a very important current political issue that definitely has two very strong, opposing sides. The Affordable Care Act was a great idea that Obama and his colleagues came up with, but of course there were flaws and people took advantage of those flaws and weaknesses. Medical...

Tess, it seems like if gender equality hasn't really changed in the past thousand years it will never change. I find this somewhat upsetting, but we have made major progress over the past few decades. I did not know that there was a specific name for the idea of...

Hi Thomas! I have never read this book that you are reading, but I have read a synopsis and this seems like a very interesting personal story. I like how you are tying this into your life and how you want to make change in your community. I think...

It is unbelievable that there have been over 200 school shootings nationwide in the US! Averi, I am so happy that you chose to write about this because obviously there needs to be more discussion about gun violence. I cannot believe that there has been no change even though...

Gogisgksoquili, this was a very powerful poem and I genuinely enjoyed reading it from start to finish. It is disappointing to still see so much racism in our world, and I hope that our generation has the capacity and knowledge to fix this unreasonable issue. The fact that people...

Gigi, writing research papers is almost always intimidating to me at first, and I sometimes feel like I don't know where to start, or if I am researching something that is meaningful, or that I will be able to argue my thesis effectively. I think it is great that...

Keaton, this is quite the interesting topic. "Hype brands" are a big part of our modern world and they give us desirable products. Supreme is a skating brand so it mainly caters to skaters, and because it has been worn by celebrities, it has become more desirable. Gucci and...

Erica, his is a great political issue, and its two sides clash very strongly. I, myself, think about this issue a lot, and I still can't make up my mind about what the government should do. I love the Forbes quote you involved in your writing because it set...

Noor, this is a very interesting post. What caught my attention and interest in reading this post was the mention of diabetes. I have a few people, near and dear to me in my life who have diabetes, and all I want for them is to live without the...

Thomas, I think this is the trippiest post I have ever read. Nothing truly is one of the hardest ideas to grasp. How can "nothing" exist in a world where everything is defined as a something? My question now is, what is the proper way to use this word? I...

Sam, this is such an interesting post. I wonder about the universe sometimes, late at night, and imagine just how much is beyond this little world of ours. How can we possible imagine our universe being 27 lightyears long? It's mind-blowing to reflect on just how little we are,...

Averi, I love that you chose to write about this! I am a pretty sensitive person myself, even though I may not show it as much. I am a pretty emotional person, however I have enough in me to share my emotions with people. I don't feel that being...

Kaden, I love how this post is so light hearted and interactive with the audience. It is quite a unique post, and I think it is a great idea to write about fictional characters and relate them to real life people. It can help us see just how much...

Hi Kimberly! I can relate to your life a little bit because I was also born here, but my parents are both from Poland. It is interesting growing up in a family that has to live through hardships of being non-native. I also love how you included a necklace...

Emilee, this is a wonderfully written post! America has changed drastically in the past century, even in the past decade, and descriptive words of America are changing. As you said, many of our values and desires have changed which reflect on our image. Our robust desire for materials has...

Matthew, I too believe that internet safety is a very important issue. I was really touched when you mentioned how easy it is for someone to become victim of identity theft and how easy it can be to cyberbully. Internet safety cannot be stressed enough in young people because...

Mauro, it would make sense that 56% of the nation's charter schools are located in the cities because that is where the most people live, which can be related to diversity of interests leading to the benefit of charter schools. This is a quite peculiar interest that you have,...

Javier, this is a very important topic to bring attention to. Obesity seems to be an epidemic here in the U.S. and it is exactly for the many reasons that you listed, one of the most important being that the large chains of restaurants target the poor with "tasty"...

I am so so happy you wrote about this topic! I am personally very intrigued about the affects of social media on people. It is amazing how much society has changed just because of social networking. I think it is wonderful that you said that it is a great...

Please wait...
