I think that this is a really important thing to discuss. Mental health wasn't built into the structure of modern day schools. I think that extra day simply dedicated to doing school work and getting help has really helped my stress levels as well as many others. However, in...

That is so absolutely interesting! It wasn't until the protests in the summer of 2020 all around the world that I realized how global the problem of police brutality is. My only question is why do you think it's a consistent issue? Is it because we put to much...

America Means Inequality View Comment

I completely agree. I really like how you said that America is the land of false advertising to some. That is absolutely true. Many come here for the many opportunities that are constantly advertised by the country, but are left disappointed when they find that it is virtually impossible...

I knew that minority communities have historically struggled with substance abuse, but I had never realized how bad it was in the native community. Do you know why that is? I am aware that Indigenous people in the U.S and Canada face unique issues such as the problems with...

Ruth Bader Ginsburg will forever be a part of our history but we need to decide how her story ends. Do we disrespect her last wishes or do we decide not to follow precedent, something she cared quite a bit about as a SCOTUS, and replace her seat before...

I think that it is important that people recognize that this is still happening. I feel like this left people's minds the minute it wasn't on any news networks and that isn't okay. These people are still suffering and it isn't okay that they were essentially abandoned by the...

Do We Still Need the Senate? View Comment

  • October 9, 2020

That is so interesting. I have also been thinking about this topic. It doesn't make sense to either that these states receive so much power in the senate despite representing such a small portion of the US citizens. I have always thought the house's framework of representatives based on...
