Hello Keury, I am always curious about the reason people have different religions. I think the reason is that all countries have different cultures and I think religions are based on their cultures. I really like your post! Here is a source that you might like to read:…[Read more]
Hello Danny. I really like your topic about the death penalty because there can be possibilities of mistakes. I agree with your saying that the death penalty doesn’t care about human rights, and I think no one deserves to take someone’s life. Here is the link might help you think more about the topic:…[Read more]
Hello Wuyou. I like your post about the fire in Australia. I agree with your saying, we need to care about them even if we are not in Australia. I also heard of the air quality due to too much carbon dioxide from the fire. Here is the link might help you think more about the topic: Australia wildfires unleash millions of tons of carbon…[Read more]
When I read articles and books, some people say that being a vegetarian as a child does not matter to their health but others say that it matters and it affects children with malnutrition. I think that kids need
Hi, I really enjoyed reading your post about vegans amongst kids. I found this article discussing if it is appropriate for children that I think you would like https://health.usnews.com/health-news/articles/2012/05/03/is-veganism-appropriate-for-kids. I liked how you stated that “Nutritions, which is really important to kids, cannot be satisfied with plant-based food.” I know that it seems like a healthy alternative, but with children growing and developing, they need a lot of energy and nutrients, so dieting and other forms of eating are not always the best. Going vegan for children does not allow them to have the vitamin B12 found in a lot of high protein foods. I think you could discuss an alternative if kids still want to go vegan. This could possibly be taking vitamin supplements or other foods. I think going vegan is healthy for adults as they do not need as many calories because they are fully developed, but for children they are still growing and require more. I really enjoyed your post. -Alysa
Hello, Mike. I am also interested in the relationship between bushfires and climate change, because I recently heard that there was a bushfire in Sydney and that made a thick air. I think that this thick air could ruin the atmosphere and it can lead to climate change because the air includes carbon dioxide. Here is an article about bushfires in…[Read more]
Hello, Wuyou. I really agree with your statement that marine is ruined by plastic products or things from human activities. I also think that this leads to climate change and global warming. Humans ruin the nature, which means we can stop climate change or ruining the oceans. Here is an article that would help you add more information about human…[Read more]

Hey Mijin, i really loved reading this little essay from you. it was very well presented and it had many great facts. another thing that i really loved from the writing is that you presented us with some solutions that we can do in our every day life to try and stop climate change, or so we can try to reduce our own carbon foot print.
Hi Brenda, I am really interested in animal rights and I also think that dogfighting stops happening. I think that people should try to make a law for that and should try to publicize to the ones that don’t know about this. I found a website that would relate to your opinion, ‘https://www.humanesociety.org/resources/dogfighting-fact-sheet’ Thanks, Mijin
Hi, Clinton. I agree with education is important and education helps us to overcome failure. By having education or studying, we should have the patience to keep working on it. ‘https://medium.com/coming-of-age-for-men/why-education-is-important-bc050af7a99b’ This website might help you to add more information.

When I am going to the zoos, I can see lots of various animals and I feel that animals in zoos don’t feel comfortable and they want to go back to the place they used to live. I have never thought about the pros o
Hi Mijin, I also feel like the only publicized opinions on zoos are negative, and I agree that most zoos are not the best option for the animal. Animals should be left alone in their habitat to live where they belong. However, some zoos are purely rehabilitation, which benefits the species. I found an article that I linked below that talks about a program that reintroduces captive animals to their environment which in most cases are on the verge of extinction. Thanks, Lola
Hi, Gedeon. I am really interested in climate change these days and lots of things, especially greenhouse gases, cause serious climate change. Greenhouse effect is the main cause of climate change and this link would serve short summary of the facts about greenhouse effect:…[Read more]
Humans cannot communicate underwater unless we use our bodies to communicate. When humans do activities underwater such as scuba diving, we need to use bells that sound like dolphins’ sounds to communicate u
I very like your post becasue dolphins is a very smart animal, smarter than humen. It is very interesting to understand how does dolphins communicate. I personally very like them too because they are cute and kind to humen. Nice job! — Clinton Kwong.
Hello mijin, Dolphin is one of the most smart animals in the world which they have similar way to speak as human. I really like how you explained the uses of dolphin’s sound and compared it with human. Sincerely, Orange Zhou.
This is a youth-powered publishing platform 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.
There are over 8,000 posts and over 13,000 comments by young people on the site on topics as diverse as the American Dream, Shakespeare, and sports as well as original poems and stories.
Youth Voices is a platform for youth to write about their interests, both in school and outside of school: what they are reading, what their hobbies or future careers might be, what they enjoy in their spare time. Like all of us, students follow our national leadership and form opinions. They are also welcome to write about those topics as well.
Youth Voices is fully non-partisan and welcomes youth of all types, from all regions, and with all viewpoints. Educators support youth in writing and thoughtfully responding to each other through the use of commenting guides, using tags to show common interests, playlists to support self-guided inquiry; opinions expressed by writers are their own.
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.
