  • Hi Kayla, Juan, and America,
    Thank you for bringing focus to this topic of domestic violence, as it needs to be recognized as a real issue today. It is scary how normalized abuse is in today’s culture. By bringing awareness to different organizations that can help and educating people on spotting read flags, we are starting the conversation that…Read More

    Oakley commented on the post, Shut Up

    I like this. The shut up is 2 fold: Trump’s statement followed by the shut up could be Trump telling America to shut up and listen to what he has to say because he is the president (unprofessional, but plausible) and then there is also those who oppose his views, telling HIM to shut up.

  • I agree with you that social media is not always reliable, but it is easy to access and pretty prevalent in our everyday lives. I would be curious to know your thought on people of power (president, etc) having social media accounts: positive or negative

    • I like your analysis of how the media popularizes as a way to validate smaller issues in life. I think it’s interesting how you took two perpectives of a subject and analyzed them to add to your points. Thanks for sharing!

  • This was beautiful. Very passionate. I especially like the part where you talked about your students having the gift of service in their lives.

  • I like this topic Yulisa. Community collages are great that I feel they do not receive the attention that they deserve. I’m glad this is being talked about now, so that more schools can have graduation rates like the LaGuardia Community College did.

    • This is very interesting. I would like to hear more about why our generation is so infatuated with this type of stuff.

    • This surprised me, since I don’t really know anyone who earnestly believes in astrology. I wonder why our generation likes it so much, especially compared with other countries.

    • This topic is so creative and interesting to discuss. I loved how you vary from history to the present day ideas on how it changes. I think that if you went more in depth on how the names of the constellations change, it would be super interesting.

    • This topic is super interesting. I had no idea that the constellations had shifted 25 degrees. I also had no idea about the origins of the naming of Capricornus.

  • People are fascinated by what scares and shocks them. This topic is interesting because its a topic that should repel us, but instead it draws us in.

    • I think astrology is so interesting. This is a great topic because you see a lot about astrology all over social media, and exploring the credibility of the predictions and explanations would be really intriguing. Although the author seems to have discredited astrology, I’d be interesting on hearing more from other points of view!

    Oakley commented on the post, Freedom Of Speech

    This essay is right to the point, and is thurough about the issue at hand. I appreciated the part in this essay where you incorporated in the teacher’s account on bullying. This is not just something that affects kids, and you really brought that to light.
