Reilly, I found your article very interesting. I personally believe the best solution to fixing the insane price for higher education to be increasing the federal funding for education. The US has the highest GDP of any nation in the world, by far. Yet we are spending many times...

Colin, I enjoyed reading your article. I the difference between how Americans treat the alcohol problem compared to how Europeans have elected to face this stunning. I believe it is mainly a result of the culture difference. Much like what Zachary says, our urge to drink while underage is...

Christopher, your article was really interesting to read.The statistic provided by the US Center for Disease and Prevention is terrifying. I find it hard to believe that statistic. While our generation is definitely becoming increasingly addicted to cellphones and TVs, I don't believe this is necessarily impeding our creativity....

Tanner, your article is informative about the current situation regarding our environment. Right now, most first world nations are attempting to remedy this. However, this is proving incredibly difficult as we must increase the rate of our resource consumption. Areas such as the Amazon rainforest in South America are...

Hey Shane, I really liked reading your article. I wrote something similar as my first post to this community: https://www.youthvoices.live/2017/09/18/can-we-colonize-mars/ . While space exploration is a possibility, I think it could be argued both ways. In my article, I neglected to answer why we should, or shouldn't, in...

Hello Christopher, I found your article interesting! Depending on who you ask, this problem is either critically irrelevant or negligible to our generation. While you did say that cellphones are making us "shallow thinkers", I would like to argue another point. I find that technology and cellphones, especially, allow...

Hello Franciely, I found your post very amusing. I personally agree with the students in that situation. In today's world, most American citizens couldn't tell you the first ten amendments without googling. While many people argue that "soldiers gave their lives for , not for you to [insert significant...

Hannah, I found this interesting. This could very well pose a problem to the younger generations in maintaining a standard of living. Occupations value only higher education in most situations. Students are pressured to compete for recognized institutions. This attitude towards a higher education will only result in a...

Nyleeah, your article points out a frustrating issue affecting our society today. I believe that this issue will continue to reside within the American society for many more generations to come, but I also believe that the younger generations are becoming more tolerant and open to others, and I...

Cicely, I think your post expounds on some of the most critical problems plaguing America. Although America was built on immigrants and foreign assistance, we have come to neglect our origins. The majority of the older population have become anti-immigration, and with the recent events on the news it...

Hello Claire, I thought it was really interesting reading an article focusing on the benefits of technology. It's uplifting as a member of a tech-oriented generation. You listed a lot of examples of how technology has benefited the lives of many. I believe it is important to acknowledge that...

Hey Lucy, this is an interesting topic. The discussion between Nature vs Nurture has been ongoing in the science community. You're looking for an either/or, rather than a grey area between the two. I believe the development of any individual is dependent on both factors. While nature is important...

Kathryn, I think you topic is interesting. It is currently a controversial topic, but it needs to be talked about in public. The role of religion should be public within our lives, where each institution should focus on vocalizing their positive teachings so the world recognizes that the recent...

Eric, your post is interesting. It strikes at the fundamental role of AI within our society, and how it will continue to develop. To what extent will humans implement AI into our everyday lives? Will AI come to dominate everyday life to the extent where our lives will become...

Walter, your topic is relevant to us here in Utah as well. Here are some things to consider. If pollution is such a problem for residents of large cities, then why has their been so little effort to resolve it? If What would it take to switch to renewable energy...

Javier, I really like this topic. I've written something similar to it in the past. Here are some more things to consider. How can we resolve this issue? Why are healthy foods so much more expensive? This topic could also relate to GMO's vs. organic foods. This is a...

Javier, I found your analysis of correlation between poverty and crime rate interesting. You talked a lot about poverty as a social issue. Here are some more things to consider. What is the rate of recidivism, and what are some more reasons that those in poverty are more prone...

Dear Ethan, your article provides a lot of support for an argument that many take for face value, without any research. Teenagers, including myself, rely on our phones often as an escape. However, more commonly, it's because we believe there is nothing better to do. True, we could interact...

Successes vs. Failures View Comment

To Annie, I enjoyed reading your article. I particularly found your comment about how failures can have a greater impact on character in the moment than success. I believe that the impact of success and failure come from expectations. When we do something, we expect it to be successful....
