I can relate to your post a lot because I live in Utah where I am exposed to bad air all the time. If I were you, I would get as many facts as possible about this, and cross reference with others. Have you checked the veracity of your sources? I would check out WebMD, when you look. I would also include that more people need to protest…[Read more]
This is a very necessary topic in today’s day and age. Many people only focus on big businesses these days and do not consider the contribution the smaller businesses have on the economy. When you said, “They give people the opportunity to achieve financial independence, encourage innovation, and create employment opportunities,” that…[Read more]
I’m sure I don’t have to tell you this, but simplicity and care for the little things is an absolute necessity in life. I am a lot like you actually, I am student who procrastinates and has many responsibilities. And like you, if I don’t appreciate the little things in life, I’d go crazy. I think you summed it up well, ” those tiny…[Read more]
I am interested in your post because I expected something a lot less scientific and you truly surprised me. Your use of facts completely turned this post around for me, and your personal view is similar to my own. One thing you said that stood out to me was “I think it’s important to to be objective in how you define beauty. Once you understand how a person is beautiful, you can show your love to that person that will make them happy.” I think this is intelligent because it really made me think. Beauty is the main core of our appreciation of others.
I agree with what you said that most of us focus on the outside of someone and not what is inside. We judge someone with out knowing what is inside and the struggles within beauty. If everyone will stop focusing on what we see the community will be better. If we stopped judging one and other than we wouldn’t worry about people getting judged and not fitting in.
Something that you said that stood out to me was, ” a mark of how attractive a person should be; we do like people who look a lot like us, which would be a good genetic match ” we make it seem if you do not look a certain way that you are not beautiful, but everyone is everyone has their own beauty within, some people just do not focus on personalities they base you off on how one looks. I hope society stops making it seem like you have to look a certain way to fit in.
I am interested in your post because I expected the writing to be more of a personal experience/ personal point of view of beauty. When facts were added in your writing it was a turning point to have more than just an opinion in the writing. I personal view beauty the way you do i see more than looks in people. One thing you said that stands out for me “Beauty can be subjective to everyone.” I think this is intelligent because it’s a very true statement everyone goes based off their own opinion of people. Beauty is more of what’s inside you not how you are shown outside.
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.
