Ishak, I completely agree with you. I think this virus has really changed the world in so many ways. To hear that your religion was affected is truly saddening. Many large events are being altered, and there is nothing we can do to fix it. We can only make...

Louis, I completely agree with you saying that the risk and rewards need to be understood and maybe balanced to make a final decision. This virus has put so many people into difficult situations, and has even taken a large shot at our economy. I think sports is more...

Dulce, I think your opinion truly matters. Factories and their pollution truly affect a large population of citizens in certain communities. These people shouldn’t have to deal with such quality of life from their surroundings. Here is a link that shows that certain people are more effected by air...

Joshua, I completely agree with you. I consider myself very active with all of my sports and activities I do outside of school. I try to maintain a healthy exercise routine and to stay in good shape. I totally agree that it is somewhat hard to be motivated, but...

Willbert, this is a very interesting question. However, I think school is very necessary. Elementary onto middle school develops a kid into a teen with the skills necessary for high school and daily life. High school forms someone a person ready to launch into the new world as an...

Simon, I completely agree with you. Teen vaping has become such a large issue in our country. Here is a link to a NY Times page where they calculate the number of deaths and injuries from vaping, I think the numbers will surprise you: It is crazy to...

Deng, I definitely think that freedom of religion is such a significant topic to be talking about. In our world today, there is still discrimination and prejudice that surrounds certain religions. As a predominantly Christian nation, the outsiders get no attention, and almost get hatred for the fact that...

I think this is a very interesting point. I think that it is very hard because schools start so early. You have been placed into a really tough situation where do you sacrifice your learning for nutrition? I’m not sure if I know the correct answer to that question,...

Glendy I completely agree that people should be able to speak whatever language they want. It is their right to be able to do such a thing. I think because our nation has so many different races and languages, it makes us more diverse and better. Language is such...

Keily, I agree that women definitely deserve equal rights. Our country has come a long way in the category of women's human privileges. I agree that the picture does portray a public assembly of women trying to express their opinion. This is their human right of assembly and free...

Asnica, I completely agree that the African American community has been traumatized with police brutality in the past years. The police ended up killing someone, but also ended up significantly affected the entire black community. I agree that PTSD has been formed with African Americans, creating tension between them...

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....

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:

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...

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...

Please wait...
