    • I agree that restraining orders don’t work how they were intended to be. However, do you think that maybe a gps tracker would be an invasion of privacy for the perpetrator. While yes there needs to be solution to this issue, I just don’t know if this is it.

    • I liked the way the sources were integrated, but maybe add a short summary or insert a quote. I’m left asking how drastic the number of mental illnesses has grown and even what may be able to be done in order to combat it.

    • Sage,
      I agree with you that youth mental health is a problem that is just now being addressed. Students across the country are all going through something different mentally. Especially through loss of motivation because everyone is burned out. Now that it Is 2021, have you found any change for the better in youth mental health? Thank you for sharing your writing!

    • First off, It’s cool that you got interested in news Sophomore year because I did as well, but I really only read it for the fake news and searching for half-truths. I still have a fixation on fake news or fabricated stories because of the amount of creativity it takes to make up and write those types of things.
      This is my senior year and heading into college one of my front runners for subject focus is computer science. I believe anything using editing or visual design is very interesting because there are many intricate pieces that go into that, not even considering coming up with whatever you record or design and procuring materials or software to do it all. It’s awesome that you actually had a popular YouTube account (over 1000 subs) and enjoy making that type of content. There’s so much you can do through platforms like that, and it’s a great way to spread information whether that be current events, DIYs or secret uses of mayonnaise.
      I was thrown off when you said you’d like to interview the President because I couldn’t process the amount of alien information he/she would be able to toss at me. When you clarified that it’s information the public doesn’t know, it seemed a lot more feasible. I’m sure the president is required to do so much more than laze around in the White House and sign a document every once in a while. What does our government hide about our justice system or medical experiments or meat packing industry? What about Area 51 or other conspiracy theories circulating the web? These are the things the media has yet to fully uncover or thoroughly investigate, and some of the most interesting topics to discuss, and the president is one of the best sources to do so with.
