    Hi Luis, I totally agree that women can do just as much as men. We are learning about the 1920s and reading The Great Gatsby in class right now, and I find flappers particularly interesting. They were really bold and brave to break out of the mold that society put them in, and do what they really wanted to do. I especially liked their choice of…Read More

    Hi Luis, it is great that you have such an organized daily routine. I have a daily routine as well. I find that stretching and doing exercises in the morning is a great way to wake up and not weird at all. It seems like you are quite busy after school. When do you find the time to do your homework and study?

    • I really like what you are saying here, it’s not fair to always associate those with a lower socioeconomic status with criminal activity because it is not often the case. But they end up getting convicted of a crime they didn’t commit because they didn’t have the money to afford a good attorney or other forms of help. I think that we should find a way to move away from the stigma that the poor are criminals. I hope to read more of what you have to say about such an important topic!

    • Hey Dorothy,
      This is really interesting! The majority of adults associate crimes with lower socioeconomic areas or people, which is certainly not always the case. My sister is a criminal defense attorney and it is true that it costs a lot of money to defend yourself. I would love to read more about solutions you have to fix the holes in our current system .

      Sincerely,

  • Hi Jessica,

    This is a very well written post. I was drawn into your essay because you did a great job showing how the American creed and the freedoms of America impact our everyday lives. I also really like the way you incorporated sources to support your argument. For example, I liked the way you used the Declaration of Independence to…Read More
