  • Dear Charles,

    I am intrigued by your post “Early History of the Death Penalty” because of all the information you gave about the death penalty. Like how long it has been around for and how people were brutally killed.

    One sentence you wrote that stood out for me is: ” As for the next ruler Henry VIII, he executed about 72,000 people for…Read More

    • Dear Stephanie,
      I enjoyed reading your post. I feel the same way as you do about women getting less pay than men. I agree with you when you said, “Women can work and play just as hard as a man can…” I feel like women are often looked down upon because we are seen as weak.

      Thank you for your post about this and helping to bring awareness to this situation. I look forward to reading your posts in the future.

  • Dear Cristin,
    I am intrigued by your post, “THIS IS WHO I AM” because of the fact that we have a lot in common. SOme of these things include not liking drama, taking pictures aka photography, love doing my school work on paper instead of online, and more. The one I feel like we’d have more a connection on is photography because that is also a…Read More

    • Dear Stephanie, 

      I am shocked by your post, “The Pros and Cons of Working as a Veterinarian,” because I didn’t think working as a veterinarian would have any cons in the first place. I thought it was just about saving animals’ lives.
      One sentence you wrote that stands out to me is: “It’s amazing how they are now trying to prevent vets from going through this by teaching them self-care and learning how to deal with moral distress.” I think it is something good for those people who are sensitive when it comes to animals.

      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to knowing more about your journey to becoming a vet.


    • I am startled by your post, “The Pros and Cons of Working as a Veterinarian” because I never put into consideration what a veterinarian might go through mentally when there is an unfortunate accident. This information is something new to me because I would’ve never thought there would’ve been a chance of being in moral distress or depression in this type of career. I do understand now as to why they might feel that way. 

      One sentence that you wrote that stands out to me is when you said, “ So vets nowadays are being taught how to deal with moral distress as well as learning how to focus on self-care.” I feel like what they’re doing is very beneficial and helpful to veterinarians. Making sure that they are mentally doing well only creates a much better working environment for them and as well for the patients that they interact with. I was awestruck when I read this because it shows that they truly do care for them. 

      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to what your write about next regarding this topic because I am also striving to become a veterinarian. Looking at the pros and cons of this field will help me out by learning more about this profession whether it’s good or bad. 

  • Dear Terren,
    I am astonished about your poem, “Just a kid with a ball and a dream,” because this makes me connect with my experience with playing basketball. When ever its the last few seconds on the clock and you’re not sure whether you should take the shot or not.
    One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is, “10 seconds left – what should…Read More
