    Hi Kalani, I love your idea of helping teen moms because it is a much more common thing in our society these days. Do you think that the best way to help them is give them baby supplies or do you feel like these girls could be helped before the fact and aid them with contraceptive methods? I think that this topic is hard to deal with because of…Read More

  • Hi Yasmine, I think your concern for the human trafficking problem in the U.S. is a very significant issue that really needs help. I think you have a really great idea on how to raise money for the MISSSEY foundation, but do you think it is enough money? Will you get enough profit from selling candy because if you have to buy all that candy then…Read More

  • Hi Christina, I love the idea of Diabetes prevention because it is a very prominent health issue in our society right now.

    • This is so sad. I think it is interesting how this group values the polygamy practice for older men, rather than investing in their future. I had never heard of these boys and I thank you for bringing this issue to light.

I could not find many articles on this subject that I think would help you. However, if you were able to include more testimony from these boys, it would add an entirely new level of depth to this article.
