Coping with Music View Comment

  • April 10, 2019

Hi Jada. Your story is beautiful. I must say, the story about you and your mom getting closer warmed my heart. Music helps me with my problems too, but nothing helps me cope more than my mother. People get us through life, the good and the bad. However, orchestra...

Hi Ari! I find this topic fascinating. We are influenced by so many things around us, especially our technology and media. It makes me wonder whether we are ever truly thinking for ourselves, which is kind of a scary thought. I really like the part about how our media...

Hi Keeba! You sound like a wonderful person and someone who is really open and honest about who they are. Your opening sentence where you talk about speaking up is so powerful and I wish more people could feel that way about themselves. Keep dancing and being who you...

Hi William. I agree, the garbage in our oceans is a huge problem and is a stain on our Earth. I wasn't aware of the patch where this is all accumulating, and I think your description of the gyres make the reality set in. Preventative motions for the future...

Hi Jada! I absolutely loved this post. If I'm being honest, I have never heard of Angela Davis before now. However, after learning about her from you, I'm so thankful both for this inspiring woman and for you teaching me about it. I like your argument for why Davis...

Hi Olivia! This is a very interesting topic and one that I think a lot of people can relate to. In any activity, it is important for all members to work together for a common outcome. Without cohesion, there is simply no chance of success. I especially liked how...

Hi Jessica! This is a wonderful review of the role of the president in the United States. You explained the chief of state, executing the law, and chief diplomat well, as well as Trump's interaction with them. I like your use of current events, like North Korea and Kim...

Hi Patricia! I completely agree with your post about a broken education system. We see children being left in the dust, usually those of low income households, while a certain group of kids excel. Education is so important for the future of the world, like you said, and needs...

Should Schools Limit Speech View Comment

  • February 25, 2019

Hi Martin! You are so right, cyber bullying is a big issue. However, I would like to hear why you think limiting school speech will eliminate cyber bulling? Does that mean schools can only limit online speech? If so, is that a violation of the First Amendment? This a...

American Means View Comment

  • February 25, 2019

Hey Leo! You bring up a lot of good points about the faults of America. We have experienced and continue to experience lots of hatred and discrimination, which is a very disheartening as an American. Because of this, many people have a negative view of our country. However, I...

Hi Anika! I found your post extremely interesting because I hadn't known just how many problems TSA was having. These are serious concerns and I appreciate you bringing them to our attention. Your suggestion to look to other countries for guidance and follow by example is probably the...

Diversity and Strength in America View Comment

  • November 29, 2018

Hi Teo! The topic of diversity in America and how it has affected our lives and culture is extremely interesting. I love the connection you make to fear of the unknown and diversity, because ultimately people like being comfortable and we certainly find comfort in people who are like...

  • October 29, 2018

Hi Konrad! I love this post because it's something that I find very intriguing about the United States. We have so many core values that our nation was built on that still prevail today. I love how you explained self-determination, religious freedom, and equal opportunity, because these are all...

The debt we must pay View Comment

  • October 29, 2018

Audrey, this is a particularly engaging topic considering the position myself and many of my friends are in with regards to paying for college. I like the comparison with Australia because it points out the similarities between the two countries and how we can use them as an example....

Amani, this post is incredibly informative. I too have been a part of many discussions over the effects of video games on the behavior of kids today. You make an important distinction about the question that should be asked. Surely violent video games don't make people directly more violent,...

Hi Audra! I love this post about what it means to be American to you. One line that especially hit me was, "If we could just unify the country by continuing to listen to opinions and have those difficult conversations while still being respectful of each other, then I...

I also don't think that we all need to agree on something. It's important to have different views in order to have an open mind. I would be interested to hear what you think about this article, which argues that the United States have never been divided. https://bigthink.com/scotty-hendricks/why-is-the-united-states-so-divided-simple-it-was-never-united-at-all

I especially like how you point out the irony of parents not getting their children vaccinated. It provides a new insight on the topic that I hadn't heard before. I would be interested to hear what you think of this article, which talks about how people are losing trust...

We No Longer Stick Up For Each Other View Comment

  • September 25, 2018

Brooklyn, You make some very important claims in this post, but without many facts to back it up. Next time, I suggest sprinkling in some evidence to support this idea. In addition, it might be beneficial to add something more than just an opinion, like give suggestions for...

This is a very well put together assertion, Sante. You have plenty of information to back up your point that makes you a reliable author. However, I think that you need to cite more of your sources and the ones you do cite need to be claimed by a...

Please wait...
