Carter, This is a very interesting topic. It seems as if most people think that a zoo is normal, because they have been around for so long, but like you reiterated, an animal in a cage is not normal. I have also seen articles and news headlines that animals have...

Yaqui, This post is so incredibly brave. It takes true courageous to write about your hardships in this way. Your writing is chilling, in the best way. I could tell that every word meant something to you, they made the reality so real that goosebumps rose on my skin. I...

Ronnie, Hmm, very interesting take on this. I loved all the detail you used and the way that you showed both sides of the issue without showing bias. It opened up more about the side of pro choice which I thought was great because that is where I personally stand....

Valerie, Your poem really touched me, because it seems as though this was a memory you genuinely cherish and remember from your childhood. I hope you keep writing, because this was a truly beautiful increment that I believe you can continue to improve on!

Lucy, This topic so controversial in society today, but you managed to provide the information in a way that you did not take a specific stance. Rather you just gave primary information to understand the depths of this situation. It is difficult to determine if PAS is murder or if...

Ellie, I think this is a great topic to research. I do agree with your point that social media has put much more stress on people to be perfect, and the perfect side you see on social media is not one someone's life is really like. As a Judge student,...

Jenessa, I totally agree about your stance on this issue. This has been a problem in todays society since the iPhone became normalized. It is sad that a lot of our generation and the generation after us will not live the same carefree childhood that our parents and grandparents...

Cristina, I thought your poem was incredibly honest. I have not come across too many posts that delve so deeply into personal issues such as your poem. Your writing was so honest and true that it had me thinking about my own name and what I have had to bear...

Ahmiah, This is one of the most thought provoking posts I have come across this year. I have actually been working on a project about environmental rights, which are the rights that each person is entitled to as a human being. Your evidence and arguments are well researched and provide...

Olivia Sauer! I agree that the norm in today's society is to flaunt what you have no matter how minimal while others are left in awe. You brought up some great points like asking why it even matter's and why are you doing this, and it has really made me...

Jalyn, I am so glad you have pursued an interest in the Flint water crisis. I agree that there has not been nearly enough upward mobility in the plan to fix the water supplies in Michigan. Simply the fact that you have made it a point to bring this...

Anna, I loved your poem. I recently got back from a trip to Catalina Island where I snorkeled frequently and saw many of the images your poem presented. I'm not sure if it was intentional, but your stanzas all follow a similar structure to a haiku poem--give or take...

Keaton, this is a great article! As you mentioned, textbooks generally don't portray Asian-Americans and it stands true because I was unaware of many of the injustices mentioned in your research. I love that you included to historical figures that represent your culture and what you are trying to...

Veronica, your topic is excellent and well thought out. I agree that there needs to be a certain point when the amount of information shared is monitored. I also think that when political views are shared on social media it causes a stir and unnecessary arguments. However, it is...

Javier, your topic is intriguing and very serious issue in society all around the world today. It was refreshing that for a majority of your evidence on this topic you used real life examples personal to you. You also said that you wanted to make a change for those...
