What if Lebron James was never in the NBA, and wasn’t alive?
What if basketball wasn’t a sport invented until 10 years later?
What if humans got to meet mystery animals like aliens, Bigfoot, and more?
What if hum
I really liked reading your post. I like how you asked what if to a lot of things that people don’t think about on a daily basis. Your post really opens peoples eye to other what ifs. I think in life there are a lot of what ifs. What if I don;t get into college. What if I don’t get a job. There are many what ifs out there.
Wow… you asked some very thought-provoking questions in this poem! My favorite was “What if neither the Earth nor the other planets in the solar system existed?” One question that popped into my head when I was finished reading it was: What if everything that happened in the world revolved around me, and my mind is like the control center of everything?
I am interested in your post because you seem to look at things from another perspective. Not a lot of people think about the ¨What if¨ in anything. I believe that people should be grateful for the things they have because none of what we have today, like phones and computers, existed a long time ago. Something that was interesting was ¨What if nobody was alive?¨ This interested me because no one really thinks about things like this and what would happen if nothing or nobody was alive. Thank you for your post and I will be looking forward to your next post.
Marcus I think that your poem is very inspiring because I am going to a new school and I thought that this would happen to me but we don know. I just think that this was a great idea to write because you are talking about how it was and how u felt. Hope it goes great for u! PS I am not in high school I don know how u feel but because my school…[Read more]
I am interested in your idea about immigrants.I think that you brought up a good idea about that. Your letter to the next president is very important because they need to fix that. I have a connection to your post. This makes me wonder why the president did’t think that 324,875,854 people lived in the United States. One sentence that…[Read more]
I am inspired by you writing about black live mater because so many people would agree with you if you shared it out to the public so many people would talk about your writing and so many people would also fight with you that black lives mater. One sentence that stood out for me was was ” how would you feel if someone killed you” that shows me that you care about other people than other than you.
I am impressed by your statements in this post, I too agree that homeless deserve better treatment. Maybe even some lift up to help them get back on their feet and maybe live a steady life. In the future we may see those changes, hopefully. I would love to help homeless when im able to, and I will. Maybe you should also put this on your list. Keep up the good work, man, I hope to see more posts from you on this issue or another topic.
This post is so inspiring! Everyone deserves equal treatment and equal love, especially the less privileged. This really shows me what kind of person you are and how YOU will make a difference in this world; you will be a big impact, with many positive effects of this community and planet.
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.
