One thing you said that stands out for me is”The unknown knows no borders, no limit. It embodies hope and relentless determination”I think this is interesting because no one really knows what the future holds.Not knowing your future really does spark something in you that makes you strive.I look forward to seeing what you write next.
One thing you said that stands out for me is, “Unknown has the power to make me humble.” I think this is interesting because I had never thought about the word “unknown” as having the power to humble me. Not knowing what the future holds is what makes me want to continue to be humble and kind to everyone, even my enemies. This phrase is difficult to explain, which makes this reading even more intriguing!
I was intrigued by the sentence ” without the unknown we would have nothing to strive for, imagination would be left without any sparkle…” This was said very well and something that I also believe to be true. If we knew everything that was going to happen, in a sense there would be no future. Our lives would be lived with no passion, we would not have mistakes to learn from because we would not make them because we would know they were mistakes. The future being unknown leaves imagination to roam and the mind to wonder. It gives one the passion to see what lies ahead.
This is a youth-powered social network 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.
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.
