    Hello Tevy,
    I found this piece to be very inspiring especially since I am a teen. As a teen I often see many girls my age trying to fit in by being beautiful. I have also wondered if I am considered attractive or not and for a long time I would tell myself I wasn’t. After a while I started asking myself what do I think of myself and with that q…Read More

    • Hi Monica,
      First of all, great post. Rot & Ruin by Jonathan Maberry sounds like a very interesting book that i would love to read. When you’re talking about what you would do in that situation I completely agree with you on how i wouldn’t want to harm/kill them just defend myself enough to escape. Great Work!

    • I am a pacifist and therefor do not condone any act of violence. But to be quite honest though, in this world where you put locks up because you are so afraid, even though the zombies cannot open even a closed door, and places like candy-land exist where a young girl will be hunted and harmed by humans for their own amusement I would commit suicide. I would have children if I needed to to help the population but I could not stand living in a world subsumed by terror because it is enjoyment and love that makes you human and how can you be human when you are so surrounded by death so much that it is literally chasing you, and every action is about survival not living?

    • I have never read this book, in fact it really isn’t the type of genre I usually read but I have to admit it sounds very interesting and I will check it out. I like how you put deep thought into this book, it shows your interest in it.

  • Lena,
    When I say that it’s a bit of both. One can be afraid of saying to much and another can be afraid of caving and I guess you could say getting stuck.

  • Dear Priscilla,
    I strongly agree with you on this topic. Many habitats of animals have been destroyed because of selfish people who only care about what they want. We treat animals very unfairly, the way we don’t appreciate the food that is given to us by them, and the way we use them as test subjects for perfume and other things. I remember w…Read More
