• Natasha, thank you expressing your opinion. I completely agree with you. Putting young kids in preschool can only be beneficial. It can help kids create friendly relationships and the basics of education. It helps them to understand how school works, and can even advance their vocabulary by very much. This link explains a few reasons why preschool…[Read more]

  • Kutay, I completely agree with your points. Obesity is a serious health problem that has plagued the entire United States. I read an article that gives a few facts about the obesity in the U.S. and it is truly remarkable that we have gotten so fat (the link: https://www.healthline.com/health/obesity-facts#1). When you said that “technology has an…[Read more]

  • The author Becket Adams states in the article “Prayer Provides More Benefits Than Gun Control” that CNN anchor Chris Cuomo wishes people would stop praying for the victims and families. Leaving action for gun

    • I enjoyed reading this paper. I must disagree though as I think thoughts/prayers do not do much. They do bring awareness but usually in what I see action isn’t taken with or following them. It offers peace but it doesn’t offer a change so similar tragedy doesn’t occur again.

    Meghan, I think this poem is very interesting. The way you set up the poem was truly inspirational and moving. The way I see it is that the Earth is here to be our gift, it cannot do wrong, however the people who are supposed to cherish it put it through irreversible damage. We have ruined so many things that the Earth has offered us. We need some…[Read more]

  • Stella, I agree you you. I think the tests do not effectively show how “smart” a person is. I think the standardized testing system has become corrupt. Teenagers study how to take the test more than actually learning the information that will be on the test. The test is also very broad. It tests a range of material that seems impossible to…[Read more]

  • A mass shooting is an incident where people fall victim to firearm violence. The citizens of America are very familiar with the phrase “mass shooting.” Mass shootings are very common in the U.S., and that isn

    • Dear Tomas,
      I am persuaded by your essay, “The Mass Shooting Epidemic”, because it really opens my eyes about how the real world REALLY is. It shows me that life isn’t always rainbows and butterflies.
      One sentence you wrote that stands out to me is: “Actually, in 2019 alone, there have been 283 mass shootings in the U.S. (according to data from the nonprofit Gun Violence Archive (GVA)).” This stood out to me because it really shows how often mass shootings occur and it’s honestly scary.
      Another sentence that showed how important this issue is is when you said: “That is more mass shootings than we have had days in the year.” This stood out to me because a year is 365 days and we’ve already had 283 mass shootings, that’s insane.
      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because you really showed how much you care for topic like this, considering this topic is very big and opinionated.
