  • Maria,

    I agree that the lack of motivation to read for students today is an issue and it is one that I find myself faced with often. Since reading is seen as not the most fun activity to some, it can be hard to find the motivation to read. I can see how students who read for fun are higher achieving academically because they are practicing…Read More

    Problem Section: Human Trafficking in South Asia

    As Jacky Rosen said, “Human trafficking is a communitywide problem, and as such, it requires communitywide solutions.” Human trafficking involves using force, fraud, or coercion “‘to make someone (usually a woman or child), engage in sexual activity without consent...

    • Hi Paige! Thank you for this article! It’s very important that people start to shed more light onto this issue, because it sadly is very common. I like your comment when you said that “…trafficking is just hidden, so it is hard to discover and put a stop to,” which is very true. Many people are scared or unable to come forward, so very little or nothing is done about it and no justice is served. Again, thank you for shedding light onto this saddening issue.

    • Dear Paige :
      I am amazed by your post, “Problem Section: Human Trafficking in South Asia,” because many people do not realize that human trafficking is a big deal, especially with children and women. Sometimes it is not taken as seriously as one would expect because it happens a lot and it is so sad that it does.
      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “Having these after-effects from going through a traumatizing situation is something many people have to deal with.” I think this is tragic because to think that people experience traumatic experiences and that at any moment it could be someone close or even oneself.
      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because your writing helped me to see the situation happening with human trafficking a little better than the knowledge I had. Also, I think it helps a lot to make people see the dangers in the world and that we need to always keep an eye on everything and everywhere.

    • I love your work! It’s amazing to see an article bring light to such a hard to talk about topic. Especially a topic that is very frightening for young girls today. It’s interesting to read this and reflect on times where my self and maybe other young girls have experienced fear that they might be victims of this.

  • Paige commented on the post, The Power of Song

    Meghan,

    I loved when you said, “This comfort we feel through song is one of the many reasons why music is a truly powerful language.” If I can relate to the message of a song I’m listening to, it can help me to feel less alone in what I’m going through. Having songs that can help us through tough times is an awesome gift we are able to have. I…Read More

    • Paige,
      I like how you introduced this blog post with a strong sentence to get the readers attention. I agree with your point that many people are unaware of the persecution that is taking place towards Christians around the world. You use strong evidence and a variety of sources to support your claim. Additionally, your analysis of the quotes helps the reader understand your argument. I agree with your point that, “By teaching about and speaking out about the injustice that Christians all over the world are facing in many different ways, Christian persecution can hopefully one day actually become a thing of the past.” I believe that through proper education and sharing personal experiences, that we can abolish the persecution of Christians.

    • Hey Paige!
      I love this blog post! As a Catholic, it saddens me that I did not recognize this. I knew that Christians were persecuted in different countries, but it never occurred to me that Christians were being persecuted on different social media platforms, like TikTok. As someone who scrolls through TikTok, I am not surprised by your research that proves your claim. People can be so sensitive in the comments, and many people take even a 15 second video about their faith as an offense to their faith, or lack of one. This blog post really opened my eyes to see how others are still being abused because of their faith. Thank you for sharing this!

    • Paige,
      I really like how you approached this topic. As a Christian, I find this to be a very important topics that many need to be educated on. I liked that you were able to approach this topic in the sense that individuals don’t realize that Christian prosecution is still used in modern time. I liked that you addressed that speaking on Christian prosecution and religious beliefs can later lead to a decrease in this treatment.

    • Hello Paige,
      I like how you presented this web journal post with a solid sentence to urge the reader’s attention. I concur along with your point that numerous individuals are ignorant of the mistreatment that’s taking put towards Christians around the world. You employ solid prove and an assortment of sources to back your claim. Furthermore, your examination of the cites makes a difference the peruser get it your contention. I concur along with your point that, “By educating approximately and talking out almost the bad form that Christians all over the world are confronting in many different ways, Christian mistreatment can ideally one day really ended up a thing of the past.” I accept that through legitimate instruction and sharing individual encounters, that ready to nullify the abuse of Christians.
      Sincerely Rosa Zavala

    • Paige,
      I really like how you introduced your blog post with a very strong message. As a Christian myself I am happy to see someone speak up about this topic. It saddens me to hear and to realize that I did not even know the extent of Christian persecution. I did not know that TikTok censored Christian content. I think your post will defiantly bring awareness to what is going and hopefully will make others think about it.

    • I am impressed by your post, “Modern Day Christian Persecution” because it is impressive how you presented this web journal post with a solid sentence to urge the reader’s attention. I concur along with your point that numerous individuals are ignorant of the mistreatment that’s taking put towards Christians around the world. the sentence that really stands out to me is “By educating approximately and talking out almost the bad form that Christians all over the world are confronting in many different ways, Christian mistreatment can ideally one day really ended up a thing of the past.” I accept that through legitimate instruction and sharing individual encounters, that ready to nullify the abuse of Christians. this sentence really impressed me beauce many christians are being mistreated everyday around the world.

    • Paige,
      I really respect and appreciate your decision to write on such an attacked and frowned upon topic in our world today. Not only was the topic well chosen, but your word choice was as well. The evidence that you added was a strong addition to the point that you were trying to get across. I would really enjoy reading a longer and more elaborate version of this post in the future!
