  • Hi Sophia!
    Your work was very well written. It is very important to recognize the different perspectives throughout our nation because it is what makes us so unique. Because you described other teenagers perspectives, whether fictional or in a recent article, I was able to see through their eyes and understand a bit about their different lives.…Read More

      I agree with you when you said, “people strive for independence, freedom, or even equality”. Independence, freedom, and equality is what the United States is supposed to represent.

  • Lily,
    This post was very well written. I really enjoyed how you took three passages from important documents and explained how they related to your issue. I agree that “freedom, equality, and individualism” are important when creating a unique society, but I also believe that because people are all different they may value newer ideas such as…Read More
