    • This music video has been interpreted many different times in many different ways. It is notably interesting to try and make sense of the subliminal messages although there are many.

    • This video is trying to give people a message. Dancing is distracting people from the real world issues like the that be going on. A gun can get treated more carefully than a person death.

    • Dear Tahlia

      I am thrilled with your essay “My life made me good at standing up for what’s important”. I thought it was really emotional ,and amazing. I thought this because i know it must had been really hard speaking about your little brother, yet you did it anyways, this shows how brave you are!

      One sentence you wrote that stand out to me is ,”and also like coming to school because you get to find out many different personalities that can influence you to make good or bad decisions in your own life that can take you a long way or leave you where you stand”. I think phrase is really great because as teens we should know what type of people we want to hang out with and if it’s going to change and help us in a good way.

      Another sentence that i loved was “many people in my life said they were going to take care of me and be there for me didn’t do what they said they were going to do so i had to do it for myself”. I loved this! This stood out for me because this conveys sometimes you only have yourself which can be difficult.

      Your esssay reminds me of something that happened to me. One time i had a friend that i thought would be by my side forever. She told me she had my back through thick and thin. But then she just stopped talking to me for no reason, i felt horrible but at the end i realized people come and go and we just gotta deal with it.

      Thanks for your writing. I look foward to seeing what you write next beacuse this one was really interesting and i enjoy reading this.

  • People have trust issues because they took the time out to open up and to let people get to know them and understand them. It takes a lot out of a person when they put their life out to someone they don’t know; i
