    Dear Hanady, 

    I am intrigued by your post, “Bathroom rights” because I think that it’s fascinating that they expanding bathroom right for the LQBTQ+ community. I also find it kind of weird because I would’ve never thought that the former president would’ve been a part of this.

    • Dear Valarie,

      I am very interested by what you wrote it really caught my eye and.I thought you did amazing writing this. “Voting Right for Ex criminal is something that can actually get you thinking about the subject.

      One sentence that stood out to me was “An example of those who are supportive says that they should because it expands voting rights for an estimated 1.4 million people.

      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next,
