    • I think mental illness is a very interesting topic to talk about, because it is something that is important and I feel many should some what know about. I like how you said that your views are as well being changed and you have a different perspective. Something that would be interesting is if you interview someone with a mental illness and see what they think or interview a parent whose child deals with a mental illness. Overall, great job!

    • I really like your post on mental illness. I believe mental illness is a major problem in the society today, therefore it is a great research topic to write about. I really like how you talked about different websites that could help people and families who are experiencing mental illness. One interesting point that you brought up was music therapy and how some of the kids that you were helping in the Miracle League of Mid Michigan were using this type of therapy. I think it would it be cool if you interviewed some of the parents of the kids that are using this type therapy in the Miracle League of Mid Michigan and get their perspective if it is effective or not.

    • Hi Ryan,

      Thanks for bringing this up in your writing. Even in adults, there are more people who have some type of mental illness without being diagnosed. Mental health is becoming less of a taboo now than it was before, but there is definitely some (not so) blissful ignorance on the topic.

      I found a website that has lots of information, from the American Psychological Association (http://www.apa.org/pi/families/children-mental-health.aspx). There are lots of factors that build into the mental health of a child, since they tend to be much more malleable, and the effects of childhood are definitely seen in adulthood. Hope this helps:)

    • Dear Ryan

      I am interested with your title , “ My Favorite word,” because I saw it and wanted to see what this was about. I thought it might be about a sus word or something so i clited it

      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “My all time favorite word is family.” I think this is crazy because i thought it was about sus words and your favorite word was family. I think it’s cool you choice family.

      Another sentence that I made me think was: “My family is extremely important to me..” This stood out for me because I thought of my family and how much they meant to me

      I do agree with you that family is extremely important One reason I say this is if i didn’t have a family i dont know what i would do.

      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because my family means a lot to me and i want to see what yours means to you.

    • Dear Ryan,

      I am touched with your post “My Favorite Word,” because I started reading it and your favorite word is family and to me family is the main reason we are all still here and surviving. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “I don’t know where i would be without my family…” This stood out to me because without them we won’t make it far by having no support or people to go to during trials and temptations. Another sentence that made me think was “They are my number one support for everything I do in my life.” This stood out for me because family really is the only supporters you have because when times get rough and everyone turns their back all you got left is your family. I do agree with you that family is more than just parents and siblings because people have friends close enough to trust them with their life. Meaning family isn’t all about your blood it’s about who’s really there for you when you need them. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because everything you wrote about family are true facts so I want to see how much more you can put into.
