“Never judge people who have little to nothing, as one day you may find yourself having nothing at all” Who are we as human beings if we ignore the suffering of others..Those who walk past and look on and do not
I am interested in your post because there are so many homeless people in this world and not many help them. I want to do something in order to have them stand up on their feet as well. One thing you said that stands out for me is, “We can give hope and wisdom to those in a need of a word or a prayer” I think this is intelligent because us humans do pray and we want people to be praying for the homeless even if they walk and ignore them. We at least want the prayers to be out for them to have a better life.
Hi Aleashiaray, I’ve been wanting to bring up this topic in my writing, as I also feel strongly about how there are homeless people everywhere around the United States. Like you said ” People walk past them like they’re not even people”. I agree with you because a little empathy needs to be shown to these people, even if you aren’t in their position you could be one day. I wish that more people would show that they cared or start caring. If you haven’t already checked out this website I would advise you to do so, it has some valuable information about the homeless. https://endhomelessness.org/homelessness-in-america/homelessness-statistics/state-of-homelessness-report/
The current debate over kneeling and sitting has become a big issue in America. Everyone on this earth has their own beliefs, its like forcing Muslim to believe Buddhism. Kneeling is really over racial injustice
I think that kneeling isn’t disrespectful since they have their hand over their heart. It’s also a way to peacefully protest. I really like how you said the current President is more worried about other countries because I completely agree. I feel like he hasn’t really brought America closer together if anything he has brought us farther apart.
This is a youth-powered social network that was started in 2003 by a group of teachers from local sites of the National Writing Project.
We merged several earlier blogging projects. We have found that there are many advantages to bringing students together in one site that lives beyond any particular class. It's easier for individual students to read and write about their own passions, to connect with other students, comment on each other's work, and create multimedia posts for each other. Further, it's been exciting for us to pool our knowledge about curriculum, connected learning, and digital literacies.
If being part of such a community makes sense to you, we invite you to join us. We welcome all youth and any teacher interested in having students publish online and participate in the give and take of a social network like Youth Voices.
