Jimmy your right. PETA are hypocrites who like to poke their nose into other people’s business. While I can’t accept punishment of an animal I am an avid hunter. There is nothing wrong with taking the life of an animal in a respectful way. The people who think its not are living in a fantasy world, and don’t understand where half their stuff comes…[Read more]
Yeah, you know, those feathers in your pillow, the ones that prick you sometimes and your like, what the hell. Where do they come from? Are they sourced sustainably and humanely? We often don’t take time to n
Good afternoon Strom,
Your article brought showed me how disturbing pillows can actually be. I don’t think I can sleep with a feather pillow again knowing what I know now and I will do everything I can to be conscious of what I purchase and consume. This link (https://www.ciwf.com/farmed-animals/) is about other animals being mistreated and used for their meat, wool and other things.
Thank you Strom,
This is one of those small inhumanities no one ever considers. I am definitely switching to memory foam now. I unfortunatley do not have an article for you but this was quite eyeopening
Are nuclear weapons ethical? In this article I am going to stray from the question whether or not war is ethical, because in all actuality war is a part of human nature. Nuclear weapons give unthinkable power to
I agree with nukes being ethically wrong. Mutally assured destruction should hopefully prevent nuclear weapons from ever being used again. The agrument for using them now would have to be a truly dire circumstance. I doubt they will ever be used but as long as people are still killing each other people will keep creating new methods of doing so
Hey Pauline, great post! I think you brought a lot of good evidence to the table, and applied it well in your article. Its scary to think that our country is in that much debt. Even fathoming a number of that size is almost impossible. You also included good info on how we accumulated this much debt. I found this source super helpful if you want…[Read more]
I very much enjoyed the nature of your article. Space travel and terraforming is one of my biggest interests. It was great to see someone who shared that same passion. The factual information you brought to the table was very intriguing. Great work overall, I enjoyed it. We will all be looking forward to the 2020 mission to Mars. For…[Read more]
Well I can’t say I am surprised. Thanks for your post. It seems to be another nail in the coffin of secret government agencies trying to undermine its citizens. Secrecy is often a sign of corruption in these sort of events, and there silence speaks louder than words. For further info check this…[Read more]
Thanks for your post! I found the content very interesting, and it swayed my opinion on sharks. I grew up on movies like jaws, and found your references very relatable. Thank you for raising awareness to a subject that does not get talked about often. I found this site very interesting if you want to check It out. https://www.bioexpedition.com/shark/
Your post on animal testing was very interesting. While I agree animal testing is egregious in some cases, it is a necessary evil. If there is a better way to test vaccines, then I am all for it. But, as of now, I just do not know if we have a better solution. Thank you for your post. I am interested to see what you say. For further…[Read more]
I enjoyed the article you wrote on lowering the drinking age. I would have to agree with you that the age should stay the same. While lowering the age would make drinking relatively safer, the act of drinking in general is unsafe. Plus any substances affect on the developing brain is not positive. Thanks for your post, and good luck. I…[Read more]
In today’s society there is a huge stigma around pornography. From a young age we are exposed to these media due to the fact that they are easily accessible, and everywhere. New statistics show that children are
Hey Strom, I really enjoyed reading this article on the dangers of pornography. Here is an article linked with more information of the dangers of pornography. ( https://www.allprodad.com/4-dangers-of-pornography/ )
I liked how you discussed the addictive properties that porn can have, and how it can effect the brain from a young age, but carry scars with them their entire lives.
We are growing up into a world that is desensitized to its surroundings. It seems that every day there is something awful happening all around us. It may be a shooting, suicide, or natural disaster. We are
Many people have suggested an assault weapons ban, not knowing the definition of an assault weapon. Assault weapons are fully automatic rifles used for the purpose of war. These are extremely hard to obtain and
This is a youth-powered publishing platform that was started in 2003 by a group of teachers from local sites of the National Writing Project.
We merged several earlier blogging projects. We have found that there are many advantages to bringing students together in one site that lives beyond any particular class. It’s easier for individual students to read and write about their own passions, to connect with other students, comment on each other’s work, and create multimedia posts for each other. Further, it’s been exciting for us to pool our knowledge about curriculum, connected learning, and digital literacies.
There are over 8,000 posts and over 13,000 comments by young people on the site on topics as diverse as the American Dream, Shakespeare, and sports as well as original poems and stories.
Youth Voices is a platform for youth to write about their interests, both in school and outside of school: what they are reading, what their hobbies or future careers might be, what they enjoy in their spare time. Like all of us, students follow our national leadership and form opinions. They are also welcome to write about those topics as well.
Youth Voices is fully non-partisan and welcomes youth of all types, from all regions, and with all viewpoints. Educators support youth in writing and thoughtfully responding to each other through the use of commenting guides, using tags to show common interests, playlists to support self-guided inquiry; opinions expressed by writers are their own.
If being part of such a community makes sense to you, we invite you to join us. We welcome all youth and any teacher interested in having students publish online and participate in the give and take of a social network like Youth Voices.
