Dear Khadija, I am enthusiastic about your AOC letter, “ AOC: Thanks for giving honors tot the young generations!” It is a wonderful letter where has an inspirational word and movement. I really liked the way describes based on logic and evidence on your statement that our new generation does not afraid to step back to take cation. they alw…[Read more]
I am very much connected and agree with what you are saying about “Today’s Children, Tomorrow’s Future” because you clearly stated that youth people have the courage to speak up for themselves and that teenagers and they are utilizing what happened in history as a tool to change what is happening in the actuality. One set of lines that stand out to me was, when it says” “His new generation is the radical acceptance that I see from so many and they take time to read and understand our history, the history of the labor movement, civil rights, the history of racial struggles, the history of economics, the history of the United States, the history of colonialism.” I think this is remarkable because you use some of the examples of how our young generation does not step back to learn or give value to our history and other memorials events that happened in the past. We always look forward to bringing out the past history and showing our interest by seeing that from different perspectives. We have the courage to accept the fact even though it could be bad, we always try to make it better by not repeating the same mistake.” This paragraph is important to highlight because many people are mistaken with why we fight and protest. We want to let people know that since we have the resources to protest and speak up for our rights , we have the possibility to make a change in the society. Youth people at this time, should not allow to continue what keeps tormenting us, such as political issues and injustices in Society.
Thank you very much for sharing your story. I look forward to hear what comes next.
Dear Yeanoor I am impressed by your text “Today’s Children Tomorrow’s Future” because you explain some details about your opinion based on the video on Instagram of the representative Ocasio Cortez. Also you give some examples of the young activists that are the resources to prove that young people are presented. One set of the lines that stands out for me is “I think this is remarkable because you use some of the examples of how our young generation does not step back to learn or give value to our history and other memorials events that happened in the past.” This line describes the reason that young people are involved in the issues that affect the community. Also some examples that you find of other young people that advocate for their rights. Another sentence that I impacted was; “we know how to solve problems and are intelligent enough to take leadership roles and choose the government.”This stood out for me because you explain that young people have more possibilities to change the roles. They find some ways to make the difference according to the issue that they are facing. Thanks for your post. I look forward to seeing what you make next. I hope you continue to post more texts like this one.
Dear Yeanoor, I really enjoyed your article and it gave me a sense of hope for our future. Like you said, our generation “knows how to solve problems and are intelligent enough to take leadership roles” which I think is very important! Thank you for sharing your thoughts!
Hello Yeanoor, I think this article is the positivity I need at a time like this! I agree with the other comment about how the older generations do not know what we can do if we put our minds to it. Because it is not just TikTok and avocado toast, we can accomplish great things. However, we seemed to be underestimated! Thank you for posting this!
I am very inspired by what you say also I’m agree with you, about, “Today’s Children Tomorrow’s Future” because after 50 to 60 years we will not be here and today children will maintain the world so we should let them decide and share their opinion what they want and how will be there future.
One sentence you wrote “we know how to solve problems and are intelligent enough to take leadership roles and choose the government.” that stands out for me is because what you said it completely true. today’s children are very independent they what they need to have a better life and make a good future and they are passionate about it and they are ready to take any challenge to fully feel their desire.
Have you seen this organization” Advocate for youth”? https://advocatesforyouth.org/. I thought you might be interested in this because they are very well organized organization and they advocate for youth revolt. I also want to share there website quiet ” Young people understand that reproductive and sexual health and rights are inextricably tied to social justice and the fight for liberation. Join thousands of youth activists and adult allies as we build a better and more equitable world”. I found this quote very inspiring.
Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next.

In my class, we read three story which is Every day use, The Lesson and How to date a white and brown girl. This is the link of the website where we read those stories. https://nowcomment.com/blogs/158092
I am envious of your essay, “Life is all about surprises,” because it shows a realistic point of view about life and how luck just played its role in some people’s life.
One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “they have a lack of knowledge about the world which is not letting them to content in what they possess” I think this is eye-catching because it shows that life is not about how much you have, but it’s about how you take advantage of the resources around you. Another sentence that I liked was: “and not feeling comfortable what life he is living.” This stood out for me because it proves that it’s ok to not be satisfied with your current situation, but it’s not ok to be in the same place for the rest of your life.
Have you seen this book? I thought you might be interested in this because it tells you how to actually read a book.
Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I think the realism in your literature is so eye-catching and opens the reader’s mind.
I am enthusiastic about your short story, “ Loneliness is a battle with no winner” It is a wonderful story. I really liked the way you portray Dee’s personality, and described how isolation was killing inside of her.
The one line that stands out for me is, “ My loneliness made me feel me that I was obligated to reunite with my fa…[Read more]
I am stimulated by your short story ” Mama and Maggie’s struggles” because it is a great story which has a very specific details about the event that Maggie had faced which never makes her feel confident and make a good communication with outside of people. Her fantasy to be becomes a successful could makes change of her fear that…[Read more]
Dear Emily, I am inspired by your story, “More sleep? I think Yes!” because it is very powerful and authoritative. The way you emhaziede the idea to having a good sleep in teens years, just because developed the brain and it will lead us to do a better job at academic life by concentrating a lesson or topic.
Dear Issaka I am enthusiastic about your short story, “Dee’s plan to become a rich,” because the way you depict Dee’s motives which really emphasized she knows how to play around people by only caring about her desires and gain what she craves for. She did not feel melancholy, even for a little bit when the old house god burned in the flames and h…[Read more]
Dear Yeanoor I am fascinated about your short story, “Maggie’s Mournful life” because it helps me to understand how Maggie felt because the unequal treatment that she got from her mother. One set of lines that stands out for me is, “Life is not easy as we predict. We all need to put effort to gain things that we desire for. Yeah, I agree that I am not and even see myself less than white people, however, I never aspirated wrong or bad for my sister. Even though, I used to feel jealous, because she was getting everything which I am deprived from it.feels stylist” I think these lines are very conscious because how she expresses about her sister make me think that she is a persistent and optimistic person. Maggie’s characterization is reasonable because all the bad feelings that she had about her sister is gone, she understands that is what life is about. Your story reminds me of one story I once read. In the story a girl was brave against racist. She was a slave and she is learning to write and read hide even thought was not allowed for the slaves. Thanks for your story. I look forward to seeing what you make next. You have a very good writing and I love how you apply a lot imaginary and characterization in your story.
I am astonished by your short story, “Maggie’s Mournful life” because you reinforce the equality that exists between siblings in some cases. We know that this problem exists, but we don’t address it.
One set of lines that stands out for me is, “My mom never faired with me as she was doing with Dee. She was getting everything according to her just because of her lighter skin compared to me.” I think these lines are very thoughtful because it shows that the reality of some families which is children face different treatment based on their skin color. I think it needs the courage to address such a social problem that exists in some societies.
Another line that stands out for me is, “My mom broke her back saving money for Dee to go to college, and I was staying home, carrying out the heritage.” I think this section is intense because it makes me wonder why the mother didn’t put the same efforts to send both her daughters to college instead of one. Having different skin tone doesn’t make you less or more qualified to get a higher education.
Your story reminds of discrimination in the U.S. and it makes me curious to know how people have unacceptable mindset and still think it is an acceptable mindset.
Thanks for your story. I look forward to seeing what you make next. Your way of writing is very touching and I can see the optimism and you know the love that you have for nature.
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.
