    Lila commented on the post, Never Again

    Ellie, This is an incredibly moving and relatable piece. The emotion that you contribute to this essay really helps portray the need for a change in gun laws. When you said, “People are sick and tired of being afraid to go to school, and parents shouldn’t have to live in constant fear that they will drop their children off at school and never s…Read More

  • Sam, I was very interested in your post at first because of the clever title. Then I read the first sentence and it continued to draw me in. I really like the quote and I think it ties into your essay perfectly. I agree with what you think the American dream is becoming.

    • This is a good topic. But my thought on it is that we do have stereotypes and as a country and individuals, we all make them. They shouldn’t affect us though. As long as yourself knows and understands that a stereotype about you isn’t true….it shouldn’t matter.

    • Lila, I loved how you transitioned from inequality with Firoozeh story to the different opportunities in America. I agree that out of all countries in the world, the U.S. is place to make yourself something with the freedoms we are given. I find the Harvard study that scientist did to be very interesting and showed good results. Very impressed with this piece!

  • Owen,

    I was really interested in your paper because of how intriguing your opening paragraph is. It really made me want to keep reading and your sentence fluency is amazing! I agree with your claim, and I also believe that equality and opportunity are extremely important. This really is a nation of opportunity. Great work!:)

    Lillie- I really loved your paper! Even though we have many freedoms and are a melting pot, we still have many issues that need fixing. I really liked the part of your paper when you talked about how our differences make us unique, but also bring us together and how we, as Americans, really rely on one another. You did a great job with the flow of…Read More
