  • Lexany's May 18, 01:47 comment on The Colorado River is at Risk
    Dear Aaliyah, I am very amazed by your post “The Colorado River is at Risk” because the main source of all water is being changed drastically. Climate change is making a huge impact on this change and it’s becoming a big risk.One sentence you wrote that stood out to me was, “What would you do to prevent the overuse of the Colorado River?” this sentence stood out to me because you ended off the readers with a question. How can we be the change to prevent this from becoming a bigger of risk than it already is. Thanks for writing I look forward to your informative posts because I love knowing whats going on around the world and in the earth.

  • Jade's May 16, 14:53 comment on Actor Makes History at Oscars
    Hello Sophia I am moved by your post, “Actor Makes History at Oscars” because I think it is very inspiring and amazing what Kotsur has accomplished despite the limitations many of us could not imagine overcoming. This is a great message to anyone who has goals but is doubting themselves because anything is possible when you dedicate yourself. I loved when you said, “I like the fact that they are showing how people with disabilities are not any less or different than people who don’t have any” because you are absolutely right. Underrepresentation in the media is very real for many different groups so including them more would help get rid of stigma and discrimination. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing more of what you write about because your posts are very delightful and your perspectives are very interesting!
  • Madai Villasenor's May 16, 05:14 comment on New Underground Railroad Sites in National Park Services
    Dear Ruendi, your post titled New Underground Railroad Sites in National Park Services drew my attention because it talks about National Parks and I am a fan of nature. One sentence you wrote that stood out to me was, “It just shows where there was enslavement and historians estimate that about 100,000 freedom seekers managed to successfully achieve freedom between 1810 and 1850.” I find this interesting because it’s nice to know that there are still historical monuments being preserved for us other generations can have the opportunity of seeing them and learning about the past and their purpose. Thank you for writing. I cant wait to see what you write about next. Madai.
  • Ernesto's May 16, 04:56 comment on The stress of high school
    Dear, Angel I am very impressed by your post about ¨The stress of Highschool stress¨ because to me it’s interesting how we as teenagers go through that phrase every end of the school year. I think it’s interesting how too much stress could cause us to do poorly on finals. We try our best to keep up with work but at the end assignments start piling up.  One sentence that stood out to me was ¨ Stress may also cause the body aka the (brain) to perform poorly during class finals.” This stood out to me because stress could make you perform poorly on finals or assignments. I had an experience in some finals I have done in some classes and I managed to pass because I took some breaks in between in order to stay focused even though it was hard due to having 7 finals.  Thank you for writing. I can’t wait to see what you write next.
  • Jonathan A's May 15, 21:59 comment on Electric Vehicles
    Dear Litzy, I am very impressed by your post, ¨Electric Vehicles¨ because it’s impressive how electric cars have to recharge every 200 miles. I think it’s impressive how you need to charge it because it’s about 4 to 5 hours a day that they need to recharge it. One sentence that stood out to me was ¨These cars are faster, cheaper, comfortable, and environmentally friendly. Electric cars would be a big step toward climate change creating a better and healthier environment.¨ This stood out to me because it is a big step in our society because it does not pollute the air. Thank you for writing. I look forward to what you write next because I like how you write this type of information. Jonathan Alcantar
  • Monica's May 14, 16:11 comment on Biden’s Success and Challenges
    Dear Alexis, I am impressed by your post, “Biden’s Success and Challenges,” because many people believed that he has done anything for the people, but that’s no true, he has faced many challenges and still continue with a smile for the people, even when the things were getting worse during the pandemic. One sentence that you wrote that stands out for me is: “I think that even though Biden gets judged because of what he has done as the president many people only tend to focus on the negative things he has done and not on any positives. Biden during his first year in office has done various things to help the country economically along with the pandemic.” I think that’s no right that people only focus on negative things, when they also have received that help that Biden has send to help people. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because this is topic that many people discuss, and not everyone is agreed on what Biden has done. Monica
  • Perla Hernandez's May 12, 18:29 comment on High School Stress
    Dear Fernando, i would say that i agree on your post, ” High School Stress”, The reason why i agree with you would be because have been struggling to stay on their grades and still need to do stuff at home making them have even more weight on their back. one sentence that stood out to me would be “This is true since stress can cause you to operate less efficiently and have an impact on how you handle other things. Stress may also cause the body (brain) to perform poorly during the finals.” This just show how much students put so much and the school doesn’t see that and still put so much stress into the student. Thank you for your writing, i would like to hear more on your writes
  • Perla Hernandez's May 12, 18:22 comment on Positive comments
    Dear Monica,   I agree with your post, “Positive Comments”, because I agree that no one should receive any type of hate comment. everyone should learn how to see every person with no negative thoughts on the other person. one sentence that stood out to me was, ” But it is unfair that people have to be paying for good comments. People also have to stop making bad comments to people because it makes them feel bad about themselves”. This shows that people don’t like what they hear negative comment about them and make them feel some type of way. i would love to hear more about what you hear or learn, Thank you for writing.  
  • Maritza's May 11, 18:59 comment on High School Stress
    Dear Fernando, I agree with your post, “High School Stress” because during finals it can get really stressful and I end up focused on trying to do well that I often forget to slow down. This stress definitely hinders my performance so it would be best for me to try methods to lower my stress so that I can do my absolute best. One sentence that stood out to me was “More stress-relieving options, in my opinion, is a good thing. It must be excruciating to be under such duress. A 5-minute stroll is an example of a stress-relieving activity.” I always feel much better after a walk or some other type of more rigorous exercise so I feel like if I did this I would be much less stressed. This could be particularly useful before an exam or presentation. Thank you for reminding me of the importance of lowering stress. I look forward to your next post because I will be able to learn how to improve myself in other ways. -Maritza ^^*
  • Saray's May 10, 19:10 comment on High School Stress
    Dear Fernando, l I agree with your post, ¨High School Stress” because any final assessments or projects can be really stressful for students, and in some cases it can really harm some students more than others. I think that it is important to know how to handle stress and ways to improve on how not to struggle. One sentence that really stood out to me is when you said, “Stress may also cause the body (brain) to perform poorly during the finals” I think that it is very important to get school work done but not to the point where we are damaging ourselves and not even realizing.  Thank you for your tips on how to reduce our stress, I look forward to seeing what you write in the future.

  • Karen SI's May 10, 15:36 comment on New Underground Railroad Sites in National Park Services
    Dear Ruendi, I am intrigued by your post, “New Underground Railroad Sites in National Park Services”, because I did not know 16 additional sites have been added. One sentence you wrote that stood out to me was, “It just shows where there was enslavement and historians estimate that about 100,000 freedom seekers managed to successfully achieve freedom between 1810 and 1850.” I think this is interesting how so much history is established. It is so wonderful how many people could reach freedom. Thank you for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next. Karen.
  • Valarie's May 10, 15:19 comment on Bathroom rights
    Dear Hanady,  I am intrigued by your post, “Bathroom rights” because I think that it’s fascinating that they expanding bathroom right for the LQBTQ+ community. I also find it kind of weird because I would’ve never thought that the former president would’ve been a part of this.  One sentence that you wrote that stands out to me is, “ He also wrote instead that it should be up to each individual state and school district to decide its own bathroom policy.” I think this shouldn’t be a thing because it should be established for every state or school to allow individuals to use the bathroom on what they may identify themselves with.  Thanks for your writing. I look forward to what you write next because I really liked how you well- explained this. I am also interested in other LGBTQ+ rights that are or will be expanded soon.  Valarie Gonzalez

  • Brenda's May 9, 06:49 comment on Biden’s New Responsibilities
    Dear Ernesto,  I am very intrigued by your post, ¨Biden´s New Responsibilities¨ because it gives more insight as to what Joe Biden has to deal with on a constant basis. I think this is important because not many people take into consideration what a president must do in order to keep a country in control.   One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “Covid-19, but the reality is that many people still do not believe it and some people are still not recovering from the fact that Trump lost.” I think this is important because Biden entered the presidency during a worldwide pandemic and most Americans are still in disbelief that Donald Trump was not reelected.  Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I find it interesting to hear what else President Biden will do so in the future.

  • Angel G's May 6, 16:19 comment on The Manhattan Project
    Dear: Danny I enjoy Reading your post ¨The manhattan project¨ because this manhattan project was the most research project at the time and it was the first nuclear weapon. It was led by the United States with the support of the United Kingdom and Canada.  One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is “The Manhattan Project was a research and development undertaking during World War II that produced the first nuclear weapons.” I think this is important because the project was made to end world war 2 and to show strength against the soviet.  Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because  I like how you show when Manhattan was made and how it got the name from.  Angel

  • Nichole's May 4, 16:19 comment on High School Stress
    dear Fernando, l I agree with your post, ¨High School Stress”. Because finals are stressful time for all students, and I think that it is important to know how to deal with the stresses so we can not only be stress free but also pass our finals. One sentence that really stood out to me is when you said, “Stress may also cause the body (brain) to perform poorly during the finals” I think that it is very important that we pass all of our tests and it is not good that we are under so much stress it can actually affect how well we do. Thank you for your tips on how to reduce our stress, I look forward to seeing what you write in the future. -Nichole
  • Hanady's May 3, 03:43 comment on Should schools be allowed to control students’ social media posts?
    Dear Valarie I was brought to my feet by your post, ¨ should school be allowed to control students’ media posts¨ cause like in my school I have not yet seen students or teachers say that schools should be getting into the student’s personal life but that they have heard other schools go through similar thing like that so I would say it not a good thing that schools should get into the student personal life. The sentence that stood out to me most was ,¨he school isn’t in the place for them to tell her what she can and can’t post¨ the fact that that in the sentence caught my eye would be because it talks about what is happening and what they shouldn’t do. Thank you for sharing our opinion and explaining, I would love to see more from you you seem to know what your talking about. Thank you and i am to determine read another of your writings.
  • Ruendi's May 3, 01:24 comment on Climate Change and the Ocean
    Dear Raine, I am impressed with your post, “Climate Change and the Ocean” because it is impressive how climate change affects our planet caused by fossil fuels. I think that fossil fuels are the cause of global warming, the melting of glaciers, and the rise in sea levels.  One sentence that you wrote that stood out to me was, “If these corals are able to recover they will have long-term damage that weakens the entire reef system.” This sentence stood out to me because pollution in corals is impactful to all the sea and coral animals that live in that coral reef ecosystem.  Thank you for your writing. I look forward to reading what you have to talk about next because I enjoyed reading your post about climate change. I would like to continue reading about any other things you have in mind. Ruendi
  • Adrian's May 2, 16:38 comment on Mental Health of Athletes
    Dear Lesly: I am impressed by your post, “Mental Health of Athletes,” because it contains many good information about the things that we don’t really see in athletes. There might be times were mostly everyone assumes that all athletes are okay and that they don’t really struggle. One sentence that stood out for me is: “But they are human too and they have feelings and emotions.” I think this is important because everyone has feelings but there are some people who don’t really show them. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because I like how you were able to understand these type of problems. It is important for those athletes to keep expressing their feelings in order for them to get more help. Adrian Garcia
  • Valarie's May 2, 16:09 comment on High School Stress
    Dear Fernando,  I am intrigued by your post, High School Stress” because it demonstrates how students are willing to prioritize their school work before their mental health. This is an ongoing cycle that is seen yearly it should eventually come to an end.  One sentence that you wrote that stood out to me, “ This is true since stress can cause you to operate less efficiently and have an impact on how you handle other things” I can say this is true because personally whenever I get stressed out I can’t focus on one thing due to the amount of worry I have. I also feel like when I am stressed I’m not performing at my best.  Thanks for your writing. I look forward to hearing what you have t say next because mental health in a learning environment should be talked about more.  Valarie 
  • Brenda's May 2, 06:16 comment on High School Stress
    Dear Fernando, I am very intrigued with your post, ¨High School Stress¨ because it exemplifies the hardships that teenagers face on a daily basis. Stress can play a key role when it comes o challenges one must endure in order to pursue an education. One sentence you wrote that stands out to me is: ¨This is true since stress can cause you to operate less efficiently and have an impact on how you handle other things. Stress may also cause the body (brain) to perform poorly during finals.¨ I think this is true because when a person is stressed they can’t concentrate on certain things. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because the topic of stress is an issue that needs to be spoken more upon. Brenda Ornelas
  • Felipe's May 2, 05:17 comment on Bidens Response to Ukraine wanting the U.S. help
    Dear Ernesto Monroy I am impressed by your post,” Bidens Response to Ukraine” because it is incredible that we cannot do anything about the war all we could do is just watch them struggle in this huge crisis. If only we could help them out with a bit more resources or weaponry. One sentence you wrote that stood out to me was: “He also asked for help from the United States, but the Bidens’ response was that they would not send troops but would continue to support them with food and military equipment”. It’s sad because they felt like Biden would’ve helped like the U.S was their only hope and didn’t get the help they wanted. Thank you for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I like how you talk about the things the Ukraine president asked for and what Biden’s response was. Felipe Vargas
  • Jonathan's May 2, 05:07 comment on High School Stress
    Hi, It is interesting to see now that someone’s bringing up to what I believe is one of the school’s flawed systems. It’s unfortunate to see that schools are expected for you to be a competitive student. Some competition is good, but if you apply that too much, then it’s really bad for the students. I do agree on this statement, “They gave some suggestions of how to lessen stress, such as drinking less caffeine and resting more to prepare for the finals.” People at young age shouldn’t really rely on usage of caffeine, having more sleep is more effective. It’s also a good idea to find ways of stress relief, especially if you are going to college. Thanks for discussing of one of these topics of young adults’ source of stress. Jonathan
  • Christopher's May 2, 04:32 comment on Driverless Cars?
    DEAR FERNANDO : Your post, “Driverless Cars?” is quite interesting. I like the fact that it poses two notable arguments from Mr. Bin-Nun & Mrs. Nunes. Although driverless cars can benefit people who are disabled and the environment, their flaws will ultimately outweigh these benefits. I would imagine that any person would feel more secure if they had full control over their vehicle, which is why trusting a computer that can malfunction, maybe even turn on you and attempt to purposely kill you, is foolish.  Allowing driverless cars to take control of the streets may be the worst thing that could happen. The possibility of them being hacked and causing utter chaos is reality that I hope never occurs, which is why I believe that these driverless vehicles may pose a bigger threat than a person who is falling asleep behind a wheel.  I totally agree with the sentence, “ driverless cars are a fantastic concept if they can develop automobiles that are safe and make no mistakes.”. The development of these safe and no mistake driverless vehicles is possible and I’m open-minded to this possibility, but this must first be proven.  Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because the topic you choose was interesting to me.  CHRIS AGUILA
  • Madai's May 2, 04:17 comment on Winds Of Change

It stood out to me when you wrote, ¨Wind turbines may also reduce the amount of electricity generation from fossil fuels, which results in lower total air pollution and carbon dioxide emissions.¨ Im glad that they found a solution to at least lose down polution even if we cant end it for good. I can wait to see what you write about next!

  • Aaliyah's May 1, 23:23 comment on Imagine Your Own Adventures
    Dear Andrea, I am intrigued by your post, “Imagine Your Own Adventures”, because the way the airport designed a fake trip to bring some joy to “passengers” is so interesting. I think this is such a cool experience and is an efficient way to be COVID safe.  One sentence you wrote that stands out to me is “Bluetooth technology installed that would alert people when they broke the six-feet apart rule”. I think this is unique and makes me wonder how real this experience can really be.  Thanks for your writing.

  • Alex Clark's May 1, 13:24 comment on Should everyone go to a four-year college?
    I’ve always been interested in trading using automated trading terminals and cryptocurrency trading bots, and this article from 3commas trading bot discusses the benefits of automated trading over manual trading. It shows why bots save a lot of stress and time, and why automated trades are the most trustworthy, all while using 3Commas trading bots as an example.
  • Erika's Apr 30, 00:01 comment on Should school offer to the students take a nap during school time?
    Dear Monica: I am intrigued by your post, “ Should school offer to the students take a nap during school time?”, because when students have the chance to take a nap they return to class less tired. Many students may sleep late because of school work and may wake up early and that is why they are tired when they go to school. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “In the document they mention, “ Las Cruces students are allowed to use the pods- comfortable chairs with movable canopies for privacy for 20-minute snoozes when they’re feeling especially tired, before heading back to class.” I think this is interesting because when students get rest they aren’t tired afterwards. I also think that students should be offered to take naps in school so they won’t sleep in class.
  • ernesto's Apr 29, 21:57 comment on High School Stress
    Greetings, Fernando I’m interested by your article, “High School Stress,” because it appears that more than ever before, kids are willing to put their whole well-being on the line in order to get a good grade. Because the system tends to place a premium on grades over mental health, it’s encouraging that you brought this up. One sentenced that stood out for me was, “Stress may also lead the body (brain) to perform poorly during the finals,” you noted, which strikes out to me. I agree that stress makes me fatigued and makes it difficult for me to concentrate. It’s difficult to put those concerns aside when a student’s worth is evaluated by their letter grade.   Thank you for writing; I’m excited to see what you come up with next because this relates to all of us that go to school.

  • James's Apr 29, 04:39 comment on Rise of A.I.
    Dear Yaseen, I found your writing on ” Rise on AI very intriguing and eye catching. So I look forward to what your write next and believe your understanding on this topic is very good. Something that stood out to me was when you “The future of A.I. must make many people nervous when thinking about it. The topic of A.I. can stress people out which is a reasonable feeling. I hope that A.I. is only used for positive things and not for immoral purposes”. I think this illustrates the perspective of all people. I hope that you can continue to write more about this interesting topic. James
  • James's Apr 29, 04:31 comment on Climate Change & Earth Day
    Dear Brenda, I found your writing on “Climate change and earth day” very interesting topic and very interested in learning on what you have to say about this. One sentence I found very intriguing is when you stated “elaborates on the history and importance of Earth Day. The goal of earth day is to encourage businesses, governments, and individuals to work together in order to decrease climate change. Its purpose is to also support more education about the environment in schools. I agree and believe that already focused on opposing environmental degradation, Earth Day also provides significant opportunities to educate people about the impacts of climate change and encourage them to take climate action. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next. James
  • James's Apr 29, 04:25 comment on Voting Rights for Ex-Criminals?
    Dear Valarie, I am very interested by what you wrote it really caught my eye and.I thought you did amazing writing this. “Voting Right for Ex criminal is something that can actually get you thinking about the subject. One sentence that stood out to me was “An example of those who are supportive says that they should because it expands voting rights for an estimated 1.4 million people. Individuals who claim that they are against states they shouldn’t because of the lack of poor decision-making they made before”. I agree with this because of the lack of poor decisions made before shouldn’t give you the chance to vote now. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, James
  • Ana's Apr 28, 17:46 comment on Rise of A.I.
    Dear Yaseen: I am impressed by your post “Rise of A.I.” because A.I. has both pros and cons. I think it’s impressive how much data it can hold about consumers. It’s weird to think that my cellphone has already had my data consumed by A.I. One sentence you wrote that stands out to me is: “Personally, I think A.I. is both a good thing and bad thing. The future of A.I. must make many people nervous when thinking about it. The topic of A.I. can stress people out which is a reasonable feeling. I hope that A.I. is only used for positive things and not for immoral purposes”. I think this illustrates the perspective of all people. Thanks for your writing.

  • Ruendi's Apr 28, 02:58 comment on Is the Core i3 Processor really out of date?
    Dear Alex,  I am impressed with your post, “Is the Core i3 Processor really out of date?” because it is interesting how a processor can change the way of wanting to upgrade since processors usually do become out of date and you most likely have to look for an up to date processor. Processors can be a really hard challenge to decide on since some can do more and some can do less and it’s difficult to get what you’re looking for.  One sentence that you wrote that stood out to me was “For two hundred dollars for a laptop with an i3, it’s not horrible.  But if you plan to do anything super-advanced with it you are better off upgrading.” I think this is something people should realize when getting a computer for whatever reason because if you need something that bests your need then get it.  Thanks for your writing. I look forward to what you write next because I like how you did something different and wrote about computers and to me that is fascinating. I would like to know more about your opinions on other types of processors and which is your favorite right now.  Ruendi Ramirez
  • Yaseen's Apr 27, 18:51 comment on Actor Makes History at Oscars
    Dear Sophia I am intrigued by your post, “Actor Makes History at Oscars” because it shows people that even if you have a disability or your suffering from an illness, you can overcome those struggles and make a difference in your life and others. Once sentence you wrote that stands out for me is, “Troy Kotsur is the second deaf actor to receive an Oscar for acting.” This stood out to me as significant and also made me wonder who the first deaf actor to receive an Oscar is. Thank you for your writing. I look forward to reading posts from you because I like the way you can make things interesting. Yaseen
  • Linette's Apr 27, 17:59 comment on Abortion should be stopped!
    Dear Jeramiah,  I disagree with your opinion as I believe that abortion should be legal as it allows the woman to safely abort the fetus. Additionally, I do not consider it murder as they are aborting a fetus and it is not alive and is legal in the first trimester of pregnancy. There may be cases in which they are not financially stable to take care of the baby or even the fact that it may possibly have been a sexual assault that caused them to be pregnant. Furthermore, there might be some life complications that force the woman to abort the fetus. Additionally, women fought for a long time in order to have the right to abort the fetus as it affects their future and it is their right to decide whether or not to abort.  One sentence that stood out to me was “This shouldn’t be a thing and just let the kid go up for adoption if you don’t want to take any responsibility.” I disagree with this statement as aborting the fetus does not mean not taking up responsibility as it may have been a sexual assault case which means that they did not have a choice. I do agree that if it was with consent, the people should have thought about the situation before thinking of the option of abortion. However, it is a woman’s right to abort the fetus if they see that they cannot provide a better future and as you stated about giving birth and sending the baby to adoption, there are already numerous children in the foster care system who experience child maltreatment as well as other effects that it may have on a child.  Thank you for writing, I look forward to reading what you post next as this was an interesting controversial topic.

  • Emily's Apr 27, 17:25 comment on What Does Too Much Screen Time Do to Children’s Brains?
    Dear Isabella, i am very intrigued by your post explains children’s health when it comes to electronic devices. This can create many outbursts of mental issues as well as physical. Children need to interact and have experience to become socially aware. When handling children they should be taught to be social and to be aware of the things around them. I think they should get more time outside and be more physical. Experiencing the most during childhood creates character. Being mentally aware vives children the problems solving skills they need to interact and solve their own problems. It also helps procesa their emotions well instead of depending on a electronic device. Thank you for talking about this situation because in todays generation electronic devices are everywhere. I look forward to seeing what you write about in the future.
  • Emily's Apr 27, 16:24 comment on High School Stress
    dear fernando, I am very intrigued but the fact that most students do have a lot of stress. Bringing this problem towards an audience would surely fix it. I feel like there should be more talk about the health of students everywhere because they handle so much stress but don’t know how to release it. Students get all the help they need for their studies so it’s pretty beneficial for them to get some rest. I think if a student is stress ting then they should be given outlets, good ones because it could create healthy habits. Creating healthy habits in order to relieve stress will improve every students work, like how you said physical activity could be beneficial for them. Thank you for writing about the importance of stress students have. I look forward to see what other topics you discuss.
  • Yaseen's Apr 27, 16:06 comment on Bidens Response to Ukraine wanting the U.S. help
    Dear Emmanuel I am intrigued by your post, “Bidens Response to Ukraine wanting the U.S. help” because it is interesting how sanctions are being placed on Russia. I feel like the sanctions aren’t as effective as Biden thought they would be since we still depend on Russia for many things. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is, “He also asks for help from the U.S. but bidens response was that they would not send troops but continue to support them with food and military equipment.” It stands out to me because it is reasonable why Biden is only sending food and military equipment and it is because he doesn’t want to risk going to war with Russia. If he were to send troops, it could potentially be the start of a third world war. Thank you for your writing. I look forward to seeing more posts from you.
  • Monica's Apr 27, 16:03 comment on Suffering from Food Insecurity
    Dear Fatima: I am impressed by your post,” Suffering from Food Insecurity,” because this is something that I lot of people go through everyday. I think people should not face this food insecurity, because is really difficult to continue your day without any food (energy) in your body. One sentence that you wrote that stands out for me is: “The sad reality is that there are a variety of people who suffer from food insecurity. There are many children whose parents have difficult times providing food for their children. ” I think is the reality that people is living in many countries right now and is really difficult for may of them, and also for the kids. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I like how you give a lot of details about this topic.
  • Sayra's Apr 27, 15:45 comment on Rise of A.I.
    Dear Yaseen, I am surprised to learn that A.I.’s hold so much data. I think that the A.I. might not be so good because if companies start to use them more people would probably lose their jobs. Since they will be replaced by a machine that is way more advanced than humans. One sentence that stood out to me was “A.I. tracks and collects massive amounts of data on consumers” this stood out to me because we are being tracked and experimented on by our cellphones which is terrifying. Thank you for writing I look forward to what you will write next.
  • Joseph Cisneros's Apr 27, 15:27 comment on Bidens Response to Ukraine wanting the U.S. help
    Dear Ernesto Monroy: I am very astonished by your post, “Bidens Response to Ukraine” because it it is crazy how we can just sit back and watch a war happen and not be able to do anything. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “Biden also said he would continue to impose tough economic sanctions on Russia”. It’s really shocking that this is the best we can do to help ukraine. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because I like how you talk about how there is nothing the U.S. can do to resist the war. Joseph

  • Jade's Apr 27, 14:52 comment on Gen Z
    Hello Sayra, That was interesting information you provided in your post, “Gen Z,” because I didn’t realize how big our generation was nor how diverse it was. It intrigues me to research more about my generation. Something that caught my attention was when you said, “I think that Gen Z is capable of many things, even if many people don’t agree with it.” Why do you believe that? And what kind of arguments are made against this claim, even though some experts have agreed with your claim? Thank you for your writing, I hope to hear more from you because of your interest in these kinds of topics. Hopefully, we can both learn something new about our generation.
  • Maritza's Apr 27, 00:56 comment on NFL to Hire More Diverse Coaches
    Dear Destiny,  Your post really interested me because usually regarding diversity in sports my mind always goes to diversity amongst players. However, in sports there are many jobs/positions that also lack diversity, like coaches. I definitely agree that usually coaches are white and definitely majority male. A sentence you wrote that stands out to me is: “I feel there are fewer chances for females and people of color to get NFL coach jobs.”. I agree that the reason we don’t see much diversity is lack of resources and opportunity. There are so many people who are qualified but don’t have these positions because of this lack of resources. Thank you for writing this post! I look forward to what you write next because with this post I was given a new perspective on something that I am passionate about. It also drives me to learn more about how I can promote diversity in all areas of life.    – Maritza ^^*
  • Mia's Apr 26, 21:59 comment on High School Stress
    dear Fernando, I fully agree with this post. I agree with the stress that we feel with being a senior and with finals. It’s not the easiest thing to manage as a young adult. I get that college is what is necessary for preparing us but having to stress about it at a young age is not okay. when looking at the other comments about schools only caring about grades and not mental health is very true. They kind of pushed our emotions under the rug because of the fact that they aren’t there to care about our feelings they are there to teach and teach only. i can also argue that some people don’t have time to be regular kids and only worry about school. some people have sports, babysitting, work, and problems at home that don’t allow us the full focus on studying and getting enough sleep. Thank you for writing about this topic. i look forward to seeing you write later
  • Saray's Apr 26, 21:46 comment on Should schools be allowed to control students’ social media posts?
    Dear Valarie,  I am impressed by your post, “Should schools be allowed to control student’s media post” because it is interesting the way students react on social media. Many times there are students who do things out of anger but students must learn to control what they post. One sentence you wrote that stands out is: “I understand that the schools should intervene in some of student’s social media when it involves hurting someone, physically and mentally.” I think schools should only get involved with school things. Outside of schools, they should not have the right to get involved.  Thanks for your writing. I like how we take the importance of students social media. I would like to continue reading more! Saray
  • Miranda's Apr 26, 21:12 comment on Should schools provide days off for mental health?
    Dear Sayra, I am moved by your post on should schools provide days off for mental health because it makes sense not a lot of people know that teens need breaks sometimes. So I think it would be really beneficial. I am sure we will see improvements in our grades because we will be able to have time to rest our minds and still do our work on the day off. One sentence that stands out to me is “Many teenagers have a long schedule and have to follow the same routine everyday that it gets to the point where is it very hard to handle and keep going” The reason this stood out to me because as a student athlete I know how hard it was to have to do things in a regierous schedule or else I will fall behind in classes and in soccer.
  • Jocelyn's Apr 26, 21:12 comment on Actor Makes History at Oscars
    Dear Sophia : I am amazed by your post, “Actor makes history at oscars,” because the actor that won the oscar is the second deaf person to ever win an oscar. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “What he likes about this movie is that the family is not portrayed as limited or as victims” I think this is important because it shows how the actor did not want to make his family seem as a victim. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because I liked how you wrote about the oscars. Jocelyn Martinez
  • Luis's Apr 26, 21:07 comment on Rise of A.I.
    I am shocked by your post, “Rise of A.I.” because I find it shocking that people are actually criticizing them. I think that if we want to become sensational in the future it is mandatory that we humans create these automatic controlled robots. One sentence that stands out to me is “People are beginning to wonder if A.I. will do more harm than good” because I think that the creation of these superly advanced A.I’s has brought a lot of regrets into peoples minds on if we should even be creating them but it is more than a sured that they will not be smarter than humans at any point in their existence. I hope that you can continue to write more about this interesting topic.
  • Karen Ser's Apr 26, 21:06 comment on Do Not Believe Everything You See Online
    Dear Juan,  I am very interested in your post, “Do Not Believe Everything You See Online” because some people actually tend to think that everything on the internet isn’t false information. I think its interesting that many people believe false information because they simply see some fact online and they go with it without actually knowing what it is or what it means.  One sentence you wrote that stood out to me was that “Bots are found in several social media accounts and spread out false information to mislead people.” I thought this was crazy because there are many false statements made by these bots and they are truly everywhere on the internet. Even when wanting to buy something online you get it taken away by bots. This has truly become a problem within the internet and I think it should be fixed by not letting people put random information on the internet without a credible source or so.  Overall, thank you for your writing. I look forward to reading your next post because I like how passionate you are about false information on the internet. I would like for you to go into depth on this topic ! 
  • Jesus's Apr 26, 21:01 comment on High School Stress
    Dear Fernando: I agree with your post, because students shouldn’t been stressed about they’re final exams in school. Stressful could affect our mood and would make you or us losing out motivation to do other things that we want. One of the sentence that you wrote stand out for me is: “Stress may also cause the body to perform poorly during finals.” I agree because stress could make me or anyone tired and doesn’t let us concentrated.  Thanks you for your writing. I’m looking forward to see what you are writing next time .  Jesus Rosas
  • Alexis's Apr 26, 19:45 comment on COVID TESTS TO SCHOOLS
    Dear Christopher: I am impressed by your post, “COVID TESTS TO SCHOOLS,” because I found it interesting how you were able to explain the importance of how covid tests must be distributed properly and how it will not only benefit the school but also the students themselves. It was also interesting to know that these tests will be distributed monthly to students and that it is not a one-time thing. One sentence you wrote that stood out to me is: “I also believe that it should not be given to the students because many simply do not care. These tests should be available to the parents to pick up because then these tests will not go to waste because most parents are responsible.” I would agree with this idea as on the day on which we received the tests there were many kids opening them and just ultimately wasting them by throwing them on the sidewalks. This would be a great alternative as there is a higher chance that they will be used appropriately and correctly. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to reading what you write next because I enjoyed the way you described the importance of things in our society and its people. I would like you to continue telling me more about what must be done to improve the well-being of our population. Alexis
  • Ashley P's Apr 26, 19:40 comment on High School Stress
    Dear Fernando, I am intrigued by your post, ¨High School Stress¨ because it seems as if more than ever teenagers are willing to sacrifice their overall well-being if it meant they could receive a good grade. The system tends to prioritize grades over mental health so it’s relieving that you brought this topic up. One sentence you wrote that stood out to me was, ¨I discovered in the article “The Coming Break” that high school students should not be concerned about their final exams.¨ This is because the examing period is when students are stressed and concerned the most. It is hard to put those worries aside when a student’s worth is determined based on the letter grade they receive. Thank you for writing, I look forward to seeing what you write next. Ashley Padilla

    Dear Stephanie, I enjoyed reading your post. I feel the same way as you do about women getting less pay than men. I agree with you when you said, “Women can work and play just as hard as a man can…” I feel like women are often looked down upon because we are seen as weak. Thank you for your post about this and helping to bring awareness to this situation. I look forward to reading your posts in the future. Brandi Alvarez
  • graciela's Apr 26, 19:34 comment on COVID TESTS TO SCHOOLS
    Dear Christopher I think your oppion on this post is really cool ” COVID TESTS TO SCHOOLS” because it mentions how the government is going to be sending covid tests every month to schools so infection spreads could stop.THis is the way to think because we aren’t using masks anymore so if someone gets sick we could still test them. One sentence you wrote that stood out to me was ” These tests should be available for parents to pick up because they are more responsible and the test won’t go to waste simply because students don’t care much for it.” I agree with you on this because students will just sell it or will throw it away and adults will actually use it especially because it’s free. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I like how you think out of the box. This idea is what we should be learning more about. Write more wed love to see it.

  • graciela's Apr 26, 19:30 comment on High School Stress
    Dear Fernando: I coudlnt agree more with your post “High School Stress,” because it is impressive how stress can cause you to function less efficiently and haveit hold an impact on how you handle other things. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “high school students should not be concerned about their final exams. This has to be true because according to the article the more you stress it can cause your body to perform poorly during the finals. Thanks for your oppion. Cant wait for what u have next for us.

  • Karen SI's Apr 26, 19:16 comment on NFL to Hire More Diverse Coaches
    Dear Destiny, I am interested in your post “NFL to Hire More Diverse Coaches” because most coaches of the NFL are white.  One sentence you wrote that stood out to me was “The main issue is that coaches being hired are usually of a higher level and have more to offer. However, we need to start seeing a change in the coaches because women are barely coaches and do not have a chance as much as a male.” I think this is important because women can very much do the same job as men. As well as, white people being hired because they are considered “qualified” but what if the person of color has more to offer with more experience.  Thank you for writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next. Karen

  • Adrian's Apr 24, 16:29 comment on COVID TESTS TO SCHOOLS
    Dear Christopher I am impressed by your post, “COVID TEST TO SCHOOLS,” because these are important things that need to be handed out. These are things that people need and can make a difference to everyone’s health. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “These tests should be available to the parents to pick up because then these tests will not go to waste because most parents are responsible.” I think this is important because there are many people who actually get the use of these while many kids are losing them or throwing them away. There are also kids who just give them out which causes their family to not be able to get some. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because I really like your opinions and how I am able to agree with them. I also like how you put your information and was able to give enough to let us know the benefits. Adrian Garcia
  • Fatima's Apr 22, 21:45 comment on Stress Is Difficult
    Dear Felipe I am glad that you agree with how stress is something that is difficult for all of us because after all, we experience stress in different forms. I am so glad you agree with the way that homework tends to bring a lot of stress to us. Which can be overwhelming. Sometimes I wish teachers understood the way homework well when teachers overload students with homework cause a negative effect on students.
  • Natalie J's Apr 21, 17:37 comment on What’s Next?
    Dear Jaylen, I am intrigued by your post, “What’s Next?” because it was a very informative piece. You shared your thoughts and emotions throughout which really help the reader understand and unlitmealty see things from a different perspective. One sentence you wrote that stands out to me is, ” He was born to freed slaves in Alabama, And became the owner of a general store in Perry, Oklahoma, And moved to Tusla where he became rich with oil and decided to sell residential and commercial plots to African Americans becoming a historical figure as the founder of Greenwood and inspiration to black entrepreneurs” This is important because it really send the message that where someone comes from doesn’t determine where they are going. This is inspiring because it shows that everyone has the capability to turn their lives around no matter how bad it may seem. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because your messages are important and informative to many. -Natalie
  • Erika's Apr 20, 02:27 comment on NFL to Hire More Diverse Coaches
      jDestiny, I am interested by your post, “NFL to Hire More Diverse coaches” because I agree with you that there should be more diverse coaches and they should be given a chance to work in the NFL. I think it is unjust how the majority of coaches are white and male. I think this because different ethnicity’s and gender should be given a chance to coach. One sentence that stood out to me is, “However, we need to start seeing a change in the coaches because women are barely coaches and do not have a chance as much as a male.Have you ever noticed that in the NFL we usually see male coaches who are usually of the race white?”. This stood out to me because it says a lot about the NFL not hiring distinct coaches. Thank you for writing I look forward to seeing what you write in next, because I really like how you express your opinion. I would like you to continue to express your opinions on certain things.

  • Jenifer's Apr 19, 20:44 comment on Bidens Response to Ukraine wanting the U.S. help
    Dear Emmanuel, I am interested about, your post, ¨Bidens Response to Ukraine wanting the U.S. help,¨ because Biden’s reaction to the help Ukraine asked for is interesting. Biden from the beginning said that she was going to help him in what he needed until it was heard that he was going to intervene and the third world war could be created. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “Russia thought it would take control easily, Ukraine has shown resistance.” I think this is impressive because, despite the fact that it is a city that perhaps does not have many ways of defending itself, it has done very well with all these events. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because it is interesting to know what will continue to happen with what Biden thinks about the help that Ukraine has requested from the United States and other countries.

  • Hanady's Apr 19, 19:45 comment on To protect Black women and save America from itself, elect Black women
    Dear Arual, I am interested with your post “To protect Black women and save America from itself, elect Black women” because it inspires me to see that black women are taking a stand. Its inspiring to see that they are chasing after their dreams to accomplish them. Women have been through so much and its good to see that more black women are holding political office. One sentence you wrote that stood out to me was: ” America has given women the right to vote through the 19th Amendment, yet there are still many obstacles that women of color face, specifically Black women.” Even through women were given the right to vote, they still had a lot of challenges to face. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because I like how you explained things.
  • Jennifer G's Apr 19, 15:51 comment on Eli’s Regret
    Dear Jayden, I am fascinated with your post “Eli’s regret” because it gets into detail and reveals what in reality was Eli’s regret. It’s just fascinating to find out that sometimes things happen for a reason.  One sentence you wrote that stood out to me is: ” “I can’t let you follow the same path your father did, I won’t let it happen again!” I find this interesting because Eli’s father passed away from being in a gang and his son was following in his steps. I believe this is so sad because, in today’s society, many people experience the same things. Many people are dying today due to the gang violence that occurs.    Anyways, thanks for your writing, I look forward to seeing what you write next because overall, this gives me an understanding that gangs are in fact not good. I also hope that people can be able to take this as a lesson.
  • Vivianne's Apr 19, 06:26 comment on Discrimination In LGBTQ+
    Dear Karen: I am interested by your post, “Discrimination In LGBTQ+ ,” because you bring up issues that the LGBTQ+ community face. You talk about the unfairness and inequality people of the LGBTQ+ community have to go through. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “I think this is a very big problem even now that people are starting to get comfortable with expressing themselves.” I think that you’re right because how can they express themselves if they are shamed by homophobic people. They should be free to express themselves how they want. Why should homophobic people care so much about someone’s life that doesn’t apply to them or harm them. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because it brings light to lgbtq+ topics. I also liked the way you wrote. Vivianne
  • Brenda Ornelas's Apr 19, 05:21 comment on NFL to Hire More Diverse Coaches
    Dear Destiny, I am intrigued by your post, “NFL to Hire More Diverse Coaches” because it would be more remarkable if the league were to add more individuals besides males into their ranks. As a woman who has played tackle football, I would love to see more women involved within the NFL, especially within the coaching staff. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “ individuals need to know about the lack of diverse coaches”. I think this is important because the media needs to spread awareness on the issue of the league not being diverse enough. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I would love to see some huge changes occurring in the NFL. -Brenda Ornelas
  • Emily's Apr 19, 03:33 comment on Bidens Response to Ukraine wanting the U.S. help
    Dear Emmanuel, I am glad you bring awareness to this issue by sharing information about what is currently happening in Ukraine ! Many people have been struggling for the past months. The United States and other nations had to sacrifice sources to economically stop Russia. Not only does this war affect Urkranianes but it also affects others. There have been many reports of brutal killings and the SA of women and children due to Russian soldiers invading small towns. I think our efforts for this war should not intervene but to severely stunt Russia’s growth economically and continue to hold refugees. Ukraine also has the help of other nations, like Mexico has its border open to Ukrainians. Thank you for discussing this issue all of us must face. I look forward to seeing what you talk about next time.
  • Arnold's Apr 19, 02:33 comment on Bullying
    I am interested in your post. The topic of bullying in school is interesting to me because many students in school get bullied and no one does anything. It’s interesting that you say teachers don’t do their jobs of stop preventing bullying or in stopping bullying by talking to students. One sentence you wrote that stands out to me is “Students do not deserve to be getting bullied every day and the district from schools aren’t doing anything about it.” I think that this is not necessarily true because if the kids don’t say anything of what happening to them how are the elders going to know whats happening so they can know whats happening. Thanks for your post. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I find bullying in school or anywhere an interesting topic. I would like you to continue telling people about bullying in school.

  • Ruendi's Apr 18, 05:45 comment on What will the earth look like in 100 years?
    Dear Kate:  I am impressed with your post, “What will the earth look like in 100 years?” because it is very scary to know that climate change will never go away since it’s impossible to get rid of it. I think the earth will come to an end sometime in maybe approximately more or less than 100 years.  One sentence you wrote that stood out to me was, “They think that much remains to be learned about the Moon and how we might use its resources to support human life somewhere other than the earth.” This sentence stood out to me because if there is a way of getting other resources from other planets then there is a way to take a human life to other planets so we wouldn’t die.  Thanks for your writing.

  • Fernando HM's Apr 11, 23:58 comment on What happened to all the stuff?
    Dear Jonathan, “What happened to all the stuff?” is a post that has piqued my interest. because the pandemic has had a significant impact on our life. Many people require something that they have not been able to obtain. Many of the products we require are in short supply, causing a major crisis. “It was bad because if you required a sort of medicine and it was out of stock since they were in the containers,” you wrote. “It was horrible because if you wanted toilet paper and there was nothing.” I believe it is critical to address this since it is a significant crisis. Thank you for taking the time to write. I’m excited to see what you come up with next, because I enjoyed how you explained the problem. Also, I believe it is critical to discuss current events in the globe and how they effect us. Fernando,

    Dear Monica, Your post “Saving Butterflies” has piqued my interest because butterflies are fascinating insects to learn about. They come in a wide range of shapes and sizes, and they can even be grown in gardens. “It all started with caterpillars, there is so much complexity and variety in them,” you wrote. This is fascinating since it depicts the transformation of caterpillars into gorgeous butterflies. Thank you for taking the time to write. I’m forward to see what you come up with next since learning about the insects that dwell among us is interesting.

The women encourage others, and they tend to have hope for the world of needs.

  • Arnold's Apr 8, 21:19 comment on Why???
    Dear beatrice, I am impressed by your post, "Why???” how they lived their lives in the 60’s and how people live now. One sentence that that like surprised me was, “>My mom said to me that there so no such thing as people being bisexual. This hurt me. But I had to realize that when she grew up in the 60s people were only straight or gay. I don’t condone her for what she said. My mom just needs to learn that things are different in 2018, that I can like whoever I want.” I think this is sad how her mom didn’t accept her the way she is. Thanks for posting this. This post will help lots of people with their problems and will soon later give them motivation of coming out of the closet. Arnold DIaz
  • Yaseen's Apr 7, 08:58 comment on Aren’t We All The Same
    Dear Jayden: I am moved by your post, “Aren’t We All The Same” because it is very touching how I am able to relate to what you are saying. I think it’s very amazing how you ask questions to develop thoughts in the mind of the reader. One sentence you wrote that stands out to me is, “Is it because I am not from the same surroundings you grew up in?”. I think this is a really great way sentence that immigrants can relate to especially when they come to the United States because they might feel like they are inferior to Americans. Thank you for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I like the relatable things you mention. Yaseen
  • Eliana's Apr 7, 05:24 comment on Equal pay for U.S Women
    Dear Jannette : I am intrigued by your post, “Equal pay for U.S Women,” because you talk about how you learned about the players were still making thousands of dollars less than the U.S. men’s team. The women’s team was filing a lawsuit for getting paid fewer than males. Federation responded, saying that male players deserved to be paid more because of the superior speed and strength required to play men’s soccer One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “They questioned why they were being paid thousands of dollars less than male players at the same level.” If males are playing the same sport but women are getting less is not right. They are both playing the same sort and put the same amount of effort.   Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because you talked about an interesting topic.  Eliana
  • Eliana's Apr 7, 05:16 comment on Waste Less, Save More, Live More
    Dear Madai : I am intrigued by your post, “Waste Less, Save More, Live More,” because you talk about how you learned about ⅓ of food produced in the world for humans every year is lost or wasted. A lot of food in the world is wasted think about when you eat a plate of food you don’t always eat everything on the plate imagine for all the people in the world. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “For example, in Nigeria, there is a lack of electricity, making it difficult to preserve food leading to food being wasted. About 31% of the total land use in the country is used to grow food that winds up being wasted.¨ This stands out because it gives you an idea of how much a land wastes food.  Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because you talked about an interesting topic and did an amazing job presenting your concern about food waste and how we need to learn how to save more food.

  • Eliana's Apr 7, 05:07 comment on Should cars be required to have anti-drunk driving monitoring devices?
    Dear Jannette : I am intrigued by your post, “Should cars be required to have anti-drunk driving monitoring devices?,” because you talk about how you learned congress passed a demand for U.S. automakers to find a way to stop drunk people from driving cars. In the process of making a way to stop drunk driving, they were thinking there could be a breathalyzer device that will automatically disable your vehicle if your blood alcohol level is too high. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “Drunk driving is a leading cause of death on America’s roadways. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), roughly ten thousand Americans per year are killed in alcohol-related crashes.” Drunk driving is not a joke and should be never done. If you are drunk it is best you stay home.  Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because you talked about an interesting topic and did an amazing job presenting your concern. Eliana
  • Eliana's Apr 7, 04:51 comment on Body Hair on Women
    Dear Emily : I am intrigued with your post, “Body Hair on Women,” because you point out how women are forced by society to shave or wax the hair on their bodies to be considered normal. Now, these days society has to look at women a certain way and expected them to act a certain way. Women must shave their bodies to not be seen as masculine. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “This had angered mostly men because the women who protested it didn’t meet the standard for women in America.” I think this is wrong because why should women be seen a certain way. People shouldn’t be that concerned about what women do to their bodies. Everyone is beautiful the way they are and more men getting mad at women for protesting what they want to do with their bodies isn’t right. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because you talked about an interesting topic and did an amazing job describing it. Eliana
  • Israel's Apr 7, 04:43 comment on Harry T. Moore
    Dear Guadalupe I find your discussion post “Harry T. Moore” to be very important. Mainly because I have never heard of him before, so it’s great that you’re making his story, efforts, and accomplishments accessible to someone like myself.  One sentence you wrote that really stands out to me is “He put his life on the line for the good of society, and although it shouldn’t be the sole duty of one, he woke up each day and did it.” I couldn’t agree more with your stance on this.  Thank you for writing, I look forward to seeing what you write next given how skilled you are at presenting information.

  • Fatima's Apr 6, 19:31 comment on Meaning of Life
    Dear Valentin, I am impressed by your post ” Meaning of Life” because it is a very interesting topic because life has many meanings for many different people. I think it is crazy that the topic of life is a deep topic because there is not really an answer to how we should live our lives. One sentence you wrote that stood out to me was, ” My take on what the meaning of life is just live and learn … If you don’t grow and learn from your mistakes then life will be meaningless because you’re not learning as you live.” I can agree with you that as life goes we must learn from our mistakes to create a better version of ourselves and live a happy life. We all make mistakes it is normal so as long as we learn and keep pushing ourselves, will allow us to achieve great things. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I like your thought on life. Fatima
  • Fatima's Apr 6, 16:19 comment on Would you ever consider being a Veterinarian?
    Dear Lexany: I am impressed by your post, “Would you ever consider being a Veterinarian?” because becoming a veteran is a great career choice. I think it is wonderful to able to work with dogs. Because dogs are super cute and amazing animals. They are loving and carrying and can be your best friend. They are loads of fun and it is wonderful to be able to help them as much as they help us. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is “It requires a lot of schools but in the outcome over it will all be worth it.” I can agree with this because it takes a lot of work to become a veterinarian but once you are heeling dogs and other animals. The feeling will be wonderful because animals mean so much to us, humans. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next. Fatima
  • Jonathan A's Apr 6, 15:37 comment on Ukraine Asks for More Help and Biden Responds
    Dear Destiny I am impressed by your post “Ukraine Asks for More Help and Biden Responds” because Russia has already fired thousands of missiles at Ukraine. I think it’s a horrible idea because there are thousands of thousand people who live there. One sentence that stood out to me was ” I also feel it is important for the United States to help Ukraine with this issue. Many innocent lives are being stripped from individuals due to this conflict occurring.” I think this is a good idea that the united state should help them with food and essentials. Thank you for writing. I wonder if Biden is going to help them out. I am looking forward to what you write next. Jonathan Alcantar
  • Valarie's Apr 6, 15:14 comment on What Does Too Much Screen Time Do to Children’s Brains?
    Dear Isabella,  I found your post, “ What Does Too Much Screen Time Do to Children’s Brains?” very interesting because I was unaware of several ways that too much screen time can affect a child. I have younger siblings and whenever they aren’t engaging with a phone they tend to get angrier and throw tantrums. It’s very unhealthy for every individual because of the amount of time it takes out of your day and the several f ways it can affect it which are very dangerous.  One sentence that you wrote that stood out to me is when you said, “ When children are glued to a screen in their early development they aren’t aware of those around them and their surroundings…” I feel like the reason that this stood out to me is the reason that it’s very heartbreaking t see kids on their phones or tablets instead o being outside and having fun. It’s very important for parents to take action and limit their screen time.  Thanks for your writing!! I look forward to what you write next because this topic interested me quite a lot. 
  • Natalie J's Apr 6, 01:25 comment on Inspiring Women: Frida Kahlo and Malala Yousafzai
    Dear Marta, I am amazed with your post, “Inspiring Women: Frida Kahlo and Malala Yousafzai” because it is very informative and inspiring. It gives others the message that we must carry out the legacy people have started. One sentence you wrote that stands out to me is, “While Frida and Malala are both unique, there are several differences between them, including Frida had two big accidents and Malala was attacked by a soldier.” This sentence stands out to me because it shows the world that these women did not have it easy when fighting for their causes. They both faced many intense obstacles but it didn’t stop them from fighting for what they believed was right. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because it is very inspiring to everyone. It also allows the world to open their eyes and encourages people to fight for things they want to change in the world. -Natalie

    Dear Class, I enjoyed reading about Ukraine’s President Zelensky, I believe he is a hero. He truly is a leader for his people, he has done everything in his power to protect them during these times where many have lost hope.

  • Saray's Apr 4, 16:43 comment on What Does Too Much Screen Time Do to Children’s Brains?
    Dear Isabella: I am surprised by your post, ¨What Does Too Much Screen Time Do To Children’s Brains¨ because it is surprising how too much screen can affect behavioral, social, sleep, vision, physical, and weight problems. This is a problem because children are too young to begin and have these affects.  One sentence that you wrote that stands out for me is: ¨they also don’t know how to interact with other in persons because of their screen time¨ I think this proves how it is a major problem and children are forgetting what the real world is like.  Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next about kids, because there are parents out there who want to help out for the good of their kids.  Saray
  • Samantha's Apr 4, 16:28 comment on Ukraine Asks for More Help and Biden Responds
    Dear Destiny: I am impressed by your post, “Ukraine Asks for More Help and Biden Responds,” because this is occurring right now and many people are suffering with this. And they can’t do anything. They just want to get more help for Ukraine to save their lives.  One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “Russia has already fired more than a thousand missiles at Ukraine and has also used bombs and drones to murder Ukrainians.” I think this is devastating because people are not guilty about the problems that they have. There are kids in there that are innocent and they don’t have nothing to do. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because I have an interest in what Ukraine is going through. And what they are doing to save their lives and other citizens too.  Samantha.
  • Jesus's Apr 4, 15:43 comment on Should schools be allowed to check your social media?
    Dear Lesly, I am impressed by your post, ” Should schools be allowed to check your social media?” because it’s a good question to ask any person. For a example, you mentioned a young girl who was upset of not making the cheerleading squad and was posting a video that has profanity. So, she show the form of frustration that she was working on, the anger, and the madness that she been hassing and was expressing herself. And for doing that but she got suspended because the school inferred with the video that she made and now believe she should be suspended for the video that she created. One sentence that you wrote that stands out to me was “She was upset about this and made a post that had curse words and had her middle finger up”. I think in my opinion about this sentence that it was sad that this girl didn’t make it to a cheerleader team and she decide to create a video so the school or the coach could know how the little girl feels of not making it to a varsity cheerleading squad. Thank you for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because we share the same opinion of schools not being allowed to check our social media posts. From: Rosas, Jesus
  • Madai's Apr 4, 04:49 comment on Should Juvenile offenders be locked away for life?
    Dear Sayra, I am shocked by your post titled, ¨Should Juvenile offenders be locked away for life?¨ Right off the bat, the title drew my attention because we´re talking about kids here. In your text you stated, ¨He is now 39 years old and has spent more of his life in prison than outside of it.¨ I felt very sympathetic while reading this because it reminded me of a caged-up animal. Animals were created so they could roam free in the wilderness just like we humans were made to live our lives not be behind bars. Yes, we should be punished for our mistakes but to someone from basically, their teen years is bizarre to me. I believe there could have been another form of punishment for this man. How would you feel if you had to grow up behind bars?

  • D'Alessandro's Apr 2, 18:38 comment on White Rhinos
    Dear Joseph, I am impressed by your post, “White Rhinos” because I didn’t know that they are in dangerous species and there are not many of them. Reading that there are less than 20,000 means that there aren’t that many left. One sentence you wrote that stands out to me is “There pretty much all in South Africa where they are being protected.” I think that is shocking that the population is decreasing badly and that people are making sure they are protected. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because you saying that there are animals that are in danger of going instinct. I would like you to continue telling other animals that are in danger too. D’Alessandro
  • Fernando HM's Apr 2, 05:02 comment on Bidens Response to Ukraine wanting the U.S. help
    Dear Emmanuel “Biden’s Response to Ukraine’s Request for US Assistance” piques my curiosity. This piqued my interest because I was aware of the benefits and drawbacks. Also, I’m interested in your post because I believe we should assist the people of Ukraine because Russia is more powerful than Ukraine. There were a lot of deaths and injuries, so Biden offered some assistance with aid. “He also requests for help from the United States,” says one phrase, “but Biden’s response was that they would not send troops but would continue to support them with food and military equipment.” Because we don’t want to get engaged in this battle, I believe this is the greatest approach to assist them. The United States does not and will not become involved in something that is not their concern and will only exacerbate the problem. Thank you for writing this; I look forward to reading your next piece since I enjoy knowing about what’s going on in the world and how the United States is contributing to it.
  • Jenifer's Apr 1, 20:36 comment on Discrimination In LGBTQ+
    Dear Karen: I am excited about your post, ¨Discrimination In LGBTQ+,¨ because I am excited about this topic because it is something that the community I think cannot and will not overcome. It excites me that there are people like you who comment a little about what happens with the feelings of these people. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: ¨This is an absolutely horrible situation that has been going on for a while now because this can lead to depression, especially among young people.¨ I think this is important because we are not alone in hurting the people of this community with words but many times we are edging them to the precipice without realizing it. It’s ugly that our community can’t leave this topic alone and start treating this type of situation as if nothing had happened. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because I like that you talk about this topic that I think is very much in the at tabu and I think it shouldn’t be there. Also, it is good that people know that this is going to be something that will continue in our communities and that sooner or later we will have to get used to this issue. Jenifer

    Dear Ernesto I am glad to hear that you share the same thoughts towards glasses. They are pretty expensive and should be more affordable.

Also, I feel like our thoughts of the color is interesting because they usually revolve around the same colors; white, red, yellow, blue.

  • Angel G's Apr 1, 18:43 comment on Is 2D Animation Disappearing?
    Dear: Sharlee I enjoy reading your post Is 2D Animation Disappearing¨ because it shows how 2D animation is slowly going away over time and how companies like disney, and pixar animation studios are now making 3D animation. 2D animation was the best animation today, but now the focus is on 3D animation which is heavily focused on computer generated images and models, but their still requirement of 2D animation like cartooning skills and ect, but 2D animation will probably disappear.  One sentence you wrote that stands out to me is ¨Although 3D animation is heavily focused on computer generated images and models, there is still a requirement of animators to have a base skill in cartooning as well as 2D animation.¨ I think this is the best because even though 3D animation is going to be the primem animation for years, there are still requirements for 2D animation skills to make 3D animation. 2D animation is not going away because there are other companies using 2D animation, like in japan anime, and more for this 2D animation is not going to disappear.     Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because your posts are amazing and I did not know tht 2D animation was Disappearing, Look forward to your next post.  Angel
  • Andrea Alvarez's Apr 1, 16:43 comment on Inspiring Women: Frida Kahlo and Malala Yousafzai
    Dear Marta, I love your post, “Inspiring Women: Frida Kahlo and Malala Yousafzai” because it shows how powerful women are and these are two very inspiring women. I think it’s very important to talk about women that have fought for rights because it is very encouraging and shows the hope that our world needs. One sentence you wrote that stood out to me is, “When we compare Frida Kahlo to Malala Yosuafzai, it becomes clear that both of them want to be independent, and have rights for women. Frida and Malala are similar in that they are really intense. While Frida and Malala are both unique, there are several differences between them, including Frida had two big accidents and Malala was attacked by a soldier.” I like how it shows that despite their struggles they still fought for what they believed in.

    Hello Isabella Thank you for this very insightful discussion in your post, “What Does Too Much Screen Do To Children’s Brains.” I have two younger sisters, and this issue concerns me very much because we live in an age where technology literacy is important yet balance is necessary. There is a dangerous line between balance and addiction when it comes to technology, and I have been affected personally by this problem. Your statement, “When children are glued to a screen in their early development they aren’t aware of those around them and their surroundings…” stood out to me because it is what most concerns me when it comes to my siblings’ screen time. As the eldest, I try my best to limit their time and interact with them although I find myself busy due to school. Thank you for bringing light to this issue. I look forward to what other very interesting and relevant topics you write about in the future!

    Dear Arual, I am amazed by your post, “To protect black women and save America from itself, elect Black women” because it is cool how nowadays, we view huge amounts more African American women holding political office. It is a good thing for individuals to be recognized after their hardships. One sentence that you wrote that stands out to me is: “Even though the odds are against them, black women are turning into their Blackness and chasing after their dreams.” I think this is awesome for these women to chase their dreams no matter the situation.  Thanks for your writing.

  • Alfredo's Mar 31, 17:54 comment on Russia Invades Ukraine
    interesting to see that you are still expressing concerns onto the situation over at Europe. The rest of the World are too afraid to interfere because Putin may also see that as a threat and declare war on them too. Ukraine is currently fighting a Country that is larger than them and they are fighting vigorously to the very end unless they can resolve the conflict. I think that the invasion could escalate something a lot worse if nothing is done about. It’s possible that Putin may resort into using nuclear or chemical weapons. They are less likely, but it’s possible if NATO intervenes. The conflict is also affecting the gas prices of many countries, especially the US since most of the oil comes from Russia. What the United States are doing is trying to decrease the value of Russia’s currency to hurt their economy so they can’t continue to fund more in the Wa
  • Guadalupe's Mar 31, 15:49 comment on To protect Black women and save America from itself, elect Black women
    Dear Arual, I agree that although BIPOC people have been given “rights” they still suffer racism, discrimination, and harassment. Especially black women who even in their own communities face discrimination, whether that be in feminism that excludes black women or in the black community where they face colorism. There is a lot of intersectionality that impacts black women’s day to day and nothing is ever done to make a better world for them. That’s why it’s incredibly important to have diversity in office. If you don’t have any of the community in office that you promise you’re protecting and doing right by then you are actively upholding the very discrimination that you promised to prevent. We need black women in office so that they could have input in our policies; policies that affect their everyday lives. You wouldn’t ask a librarian to help make safety rules for electricians, so why are we asking white men to make policies that concern the livelihood of BIPOC peoples? Representation is a big step in the right direction to creating a better world for minorities. Thank you for acknowledging how far black women have come even with all that they face. It’s always important to have conversations about the improvements we need in our society!

  • Natalie Flores-Montanez's Mar 30, 18:13 comment on Should schools be allowed to control students’ social media posts?
    Dear Valerie, I am impressed with your post, “Should School be Allowed to Control Students Media Posts” because my school I have not yet seen students or teachers say that schools should be getting into the student’s personal life but that they have heard other schools go through similar thing like that so I would say it not a good thing that schools should get into the student personal life. One sentence that your wrote that stands out for me is “Brandi’s parents believed that the school was in the wrong for doing so since it violated her first amendment…” I think this is correct because this student is able to express what she wants on the internet. Thank you and I am looking forwards to reading another writing. I was interested with your writing. Natalie

  • maria's Mar 30, 16:08 comment on Ukraine Asks for More Help and Biden Responds
    Dear Destiny : I am surprised  by your post, “Ukraine Asks for More Help and Biden Responds ,” because of the fact that Putin has made a mess out of the lives of ukrainian that is also affecting the people of other countries. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “Zelensky is not only asking for help from the United States but from the whole world.” I think this is worrisome because that means that his country isin great suffering and needs help but also the others are trying to not start a WW3, it would be chaotic. I don’t know how Biden and the other leaders could help in this situation aside from sending resources.  Thanks for your writing.

  • Natalie Flores-Montanez's Mar 30, 15:45 comment on What Does Too Much Screen Time Do to Children’s Brains?
    Dear Isabella, I found your post, “What Does Too Much Screen Time Do to Children’s Brains,” interesting because I have a little brother and a little sister who is addicted to their electronics. When there devices get taken away they would react with attitude and with anger. My little sister and brother have an addiction and it is not good for them. These devices must be regulated and it is the parent’s responsibility to do so. One sentence you wrote that stood out to me is: ” In addition, they also don’t know how to interact with others in person because of their screen time and they don’t like interacting with others because of the awkwardness and uncomfortable that it brings and would rather be on a screen and limit their interactions with others dramatically.” I find this interesting because I can say that my little sister is like this. She would rather watch youtube than interact with other kids her age. I believe this is so sad because I remember when I was her age I loved nothing more than to go outside and play with my friends and cousins. Thank you for your time.

  • Christopher's Mar 30, 05:11 comment on What Does Too Much Screen Time Do to Children’s Brains?
    Dear ISABELLA: I found your post, “What Does Too Much Screen Time Do to Children’s Brains,” very intriguing because I have a four-year-old brother who is addicted to his tablet and to the TV. When these devices are taken away he reacts aggressively and with anger, which is something you mentioned leading to the conclusion that he has an addiction. A four-year-old having an addiction is not good. These devices must be regulated and it is the parent’s responsibility to do so.   One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “don’t know how to interact with others in person” and I believe this statement is on point. With all things, in order for people to do well in something they must practice and this practice applies to social interaction as well.  Thanks for your writing.

  • Valentin's Mar 30, 01:31 comment on Bidens Response to Ukraine wanting the U.S. help
    Dear Emmanuel, Your post about Biden and Ukraine interested me. It was interesting too because as hell on earth is happening in the war between Ukraine and Russia, Biden cannot act now because he is protecting you and me from having to worry about Russia attacking us and of course so World War 3 won’t happen. And how they are applying harsh economic sanctions against Russia are also heard that the ruble (Russian currency) is now less than a penny. You explained this very well and one sentence that jumps out to me is,” Volodymyr Zelensky is asking for help from the whole world…” This jumps out at me because if the whole world were to help Ukraine then WWIII would most definitely happen and hell on earth wouldn’t just be in Ukraine, it would be hell on earth as everyone would feel the impact of war and the many hardships that come from it. So, Yes I do agree with Bidens decision
  • Israel's Mar 30, 01:02 comment on Should schools be allowed to control students’ social media posts?
    Dear Valarie I find your discussion post “Should schools be allowed to control students’ social media posts?” very interesting, because of the contents of the story and how well you wrote about this topic.  One sentence you wrote that stands out to me is “In this case, I’m 50/50 on it since both sides hold great points.” I think neutrality in this instance is rare compared to what I’ve heard about this topic before. I also liked how you mention both sides having great points, I agree.  Thanks for writing, I look forward to what you post next because of how well you approach topics like this and your great writing.

  • Emily's Mar 30, 00:36 comment on To protect Black women and save America from itself, elect Black women
    Dear Arual, I am very intrigued by your interest in spreading awareness about the accomplishments of black women. Not only does this bring light to the issues they face but it shows them as someone who is the backbone of society. This creates a worldwide inspiration for the African American community. This teaches people that others that there could be all kinds of different communities that can be a part of one whole organization to be in a position of power. I find it interesting that we are able to get different perspectives, especially from a black woman and not typically a white man. This lets them have different opinions about certain things when it comes to different situations. Thank you for writing about black women’s accomplishments ! I think it would be important to spread this information about how WOC can make big changes to the world.
  • Stephanie's Mar 29, 18:50 comment on Early History of the Death Penalty
    Dear Charles, I am intrigued by your post “Early History of the Death Penalty” because of all the information you gave about the death penalty. Like how long it has been around for and how people were brutally killed. One sentence you wrote that stood out for me is: ” As for the next ruler Henry VIII, he executed about 72,000 people for crimes of treason, marrying a Jew, and not confessing to a crime”. I think this is crazy because of the fact that if you were to marry a jew then you would’ve been killed/sentenced. Not only that but I found it crazy from the amount of people that he had killed. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because of how informative you are. What will bring me back to read your posts is for how you go into detail about your topics.

  • Linette's Mar 29, 16:37 comment on Body Hair on Women
    Dear Emily:  I am not necessarily shocked or surprised that women are forced by society to shave or wax the hair on their bodies as it has become normalized for people to think that women need to shave in order to be attractive or seem more feminine. It is unfortunate that people, especially men and a few women, have double standards as they think it is disgusting for a woman to have body hair but they think it’s fine on a man because they’re masculine.  One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is “Women who have tried to fight for these things always got looked down on and I think this shouldn’t be a thing to bash women for this especially since these standards of beauty are engraved with pedophilia and it’s unfair how others think they should control what women look like to be considered beautiful.” I think it is disturbing how close you are to the fact that beauty is engraved with pedophilia as men usually look for women who have no body hair which typically means that they typically look younger.  I appreciate your writing as I like how you are able to bring awareness to topics that one does not normally think about or realize has had much of an effect on society. I look forward to reading another of your posts!  Linette Andrade
  • Leah's Mar 29, 15:24 comment on Hate Crime
    Dear Raniyah:  I am touched by your  post “hate crime,” because it tells it how it is. The many things done to african americans all because of their skin. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “what does it take for it to come to an end?” I think this is strong because they deal with so much hatred due to their skin. They are continuously stereo typed and mistreated Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because it was a very intriguing and touching post Leah Rodriguez
  • Lexany's Mar 29, 14:56 comment on Early History of the Death Penalty
    Dear Charles, I am very fascinated by the information you provided because I never knew how long the death penalty has been around. The death penalty is a very cruel act and I believe that the death penalty is a very disturbing thing. One sentence you wrote that stood out to me was, “the earliest use of this practice took place about 1,500 years ago and were brutal forms of killing.” This stood out to me because its been around for a very long time and its crazy to think that people are still following this today Thank you for writing!!
  • Vivianne's Mar 29, 09:45 comment on Inspiring Women: Frida Kahlo and Malala Yousafzai
    Dear Marta, I am intrigued by your post, “Inspiring Women: Frida Kahlo and Malala Yousafzai.” I think your post is very well written. Both women were very empowering women who wanted equality in the world and expressed this heavily. Both women are very similar and went through really tough times in their lives. One sentence that you wrote that stood out to me is: “When we compare Frida Kahlo to Malala Yousafzai, it becomes clear that both of them want to be independent, and have rights for womens. Frida and Malala are similar in that they are really intense.” I like how you made this connection between the both women. I also like how you made it clear for what they stood for in their lives. Thank you for your writing I look forward to your next writing as well. I would like to see what other comparisons you can come up with as well as interesting topics.
  • Graciela Tapia's Mar 29, 03:38 comment on Should schools be allowed to control students’ social media posts?
    Dear Valarie I was brought to my feet by your post, ¨ should school be allowed to control students’ media posts¨ cause like in my school I have not yet seen students or teachers say that schools should be getting into the student’s personal life but that they have heard other schools go through simular thing like that so I would say it not a good thing that schools should get into the student personal life. The sentence that stood out to me most was ,¨he school isn’t in the place for them to tell her what she can and can’t post¨ the fact that that in the sentence caught my eye would be because it talks about what is happening and what they shouldn’t do. Thank you for sharing our oppion and explaining, I would love to see more from you you seem to know what your talking about.

One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: ” I learned that Secretary Jacob Lew announced that women would be featured display on the $10″ I didn’t know that they wanted to change the 10 dollar bill. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next. Fernando
  • Ernesto's Mar 28, 21:59 comment on Positive comments
      Dear Monica:   I agree with your post, “Positive Comments”, because I agree that no one should receive negative feedback. I think it’s great that people can pay to receive kind messages from other people. There should be more love  in this world than hate.   One sentence you wrote that I stuck with was: “I think it’s a good idea because millions of people make bad comments about themselves every day. But it’s not fair that people have to pay for good reviews. I agree with this statement because it shows that people  have become less communicative with each other thanks to the internet. Without social interaction between people, no friendship or trust is formed, and in general when you post or say something on the internet you are more  likely to hear something negative about it.   Thanks for your post. I can’t wait to see what you write next as I’ve never heard of something like this before. I would love to know more as this is truly an eye-opener.

One sentence you wrote that stood out to me is ” A group of women made a campaign to raise their voices and that women be printed on a dollar, but the government rejected that idea.” I never knew they had created a campaign to make this change. It is interesting to know that people fight for these changes. Thanks for your writing. I can’t wait to see what you write next. Karen.

  • Raymond's Mar 28, 15:41 comment on Why online returns are bad
    Good day, Sayra.  Your article, “Why Online Returns Are Bad,” astonished me because I had never considered what happened to returned items and did not expect them to be thrown away. Given that I am an internet consumer, this is something I would like to learn more about.  “People return on average approximately 25% of what they buy online, compared to about 8% of what they buy in stores (upfront),” you said, and that struck a chord with me. This, I believe, places a great deal of responsibility on both online consumers and firms who offer things online. Inquiring about how our favorite online stores handle returned goods in an environmentally responsible manner would be a terrific idea.
  • Jennifer G's Mar 28, 15:36 comment on What Does Too Much Screen Time Do to Children’s Brains?
    Dear Isabella, I am fascinated with your post “What Does Too Much Screen Time Do to Children’s Brains?” because I could only imagine how screen time affects children. Every generation seems to keep getting closer and closer to their cellphones so, I wonder how these children will be affected as time goes on.  One sentence you wrote that stood out to me is: ” In addition, they also don’t know how to interact with others in person because of their screen time and they don’t like interacting with others because of the awkwardness and uncomfortable that it brings and would rather be on a screen and limit their interactions with others dramatically.” I find this interesting because I can say that my little sister is like this. She would rather watch youtube than interact with other kids her age. I believe this is so sad because I remember when I was her age I loved nothing more than to go outside and play with my friends and cousins.   Anyways, thanks for your writing, I look forward to seeing what you write next because overall, I learned that screen time is very effective for children and many don’t even realize it. 
  • Ernesto's Mar 28, 15:23 comment on Bidens Response to Ukraine wanting the U.S. help
    Dear Emmanuel, I’m interested in your post “Biden’s Response to Ukraine Wanting the US Help”. This was interesting to me because I know this came with some pros and cons. Also, why I’m interested in your post is because I do think we should help Ukraine people due to Russia being more powerful than Ukraine. A Lot of deaths and injuries so Biden provided some help with aid.  One sentence that stands out to me is ”He also asks for help from the U.S. but Biden’s response was that they would not send troops but continue to support them with food and military equipment”. I think that this is the best way to help them because we don’t want to get involved with this war. The U.S does not and will not get into something that’s not their business and only will make the problem worse.  Thanks for writing this, I will be looking forward to your next writing because I love learning about what’s going on in the world and how the U.S is helping out in this. 
  • Felipe's Mar 28, 08:15 comment on Stress Is Difficult
    Dear Fatima, I am impressed by your post ” Stress is difficult” because you explain how stress makes people feel not only frustrated but also very sad and overwhelmed. I can agree with you that having a lot of homework and work can be very stressful because you feel like there’s no time to do anything and that’s why the stress kicks in. one sentence you wrote that stood out to me is: ” I know how difficult is it to feel overwhelmed and drained. Stressing over so many things. it’s not easy.” I like what you said here because you express yourself and I know that a lot of people can relate to you. Thank you for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I love how you can express yourself and elaborate on what stress causes us to do. I would like you to continue doing what your doing, keep up the good work. Felipe Vargas
  • Griselda's Mar 28, 07:04 comment on Black Wall Street Egalitarianism
    Dear Chester I really just enjoyed the way you described your thoughts and emotions on this topic you’re so passionate about! It stood out to me once I began to read it. I was captivated and caught myself not reading line after line wanting more! A sentence that stood out to me was when you said, ” Jealous white mayo packets hate our black beauty, and in their minds, we’re always mean.” The thing that stood out to me was the comparison you made! I think the importance of making a pun and you saying that white people think black people are being mean for this! Thank you for your thoughts! I look forward to reading any future posts that you make! I would love to hear more posts on different topics and your opinions of them! Griselda Villafana Baldovinos!
  • MaryJoe's Mar 28, 06:04 comment on Positive comments
    Dear Monica I love your post, “Positive comments” because I believe that people need something like this and I am in big favor of how “Praising groups” is a part of the start of this change. I have always thought the same about social media because of how cruel people can be to others. I love the idea of WeChat and how it can impact others’ daily lives. Something that stood out to me was,” I think it’s a good idea because millions of people daily receive bad comments about themselves.” I agree that people deserve more than nasty bad comments that they don’t deserve in the first place. I believe that this could bring so many people to have the validation that they need rather than the negativity they don’t need. Thank you for writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I like that we think the same. We have goals for others and we are trying to bring change. You are an amazing person and I am glad that I read your post. Maryjoe Camaquin
  • Christian's Mar 28, 05:42 comment on A guide to what Russia and Ukraine want from talks- and where the red lines are
    Dear Paul I am impressed with your post “A guide to what Russia and Ukraine want from talks- and where the red lines are” because it is about the current event that is going on between Ukraine and Russia. That is because of how it started and how it going on at the moment. One sentence that stood out to me is “The establishment of humanitarian evacuation corridors still remains a contentious issue, as Russia promised to respect them but their soldiers still continue to shell and shoot, killing refugees in this area.” That is because Russian troops are killing hundreds of refugees who are trying to evacuate from the war that is going on. Thank you for your writing. I look forward to what you write next because I’m interested in what you write next which is a current event in the world today. Christian
  • Hanady's Mar 28, 05:36 comment on Discrimination In LGBTQ+
    Dear Karen, Your post, “Discrimination In LGBTQ+,” was a eye opening to me, and informed me that just because people express themselves they get treated very unfairly and can even be led to either verbal or physical abuse. It’s a very horrible situation. One sentence you wrote that stood out for me was: “people who come out tend to get harassed and mistreated, and some of them have to deal with this all the time within this society” I think this is very disappointing because no human, no matter what they identify as should go through this. Thank you for writing about this topic.
  • Andrea L's Mar 28, 05:33 comment on Finding the Good/Adjusting
    Dear Annabelle, I am delighted by your post Finding the Good/Adjusting since it focuses on what a lot of people, including myself, went through during the pandemic. It focuses on how the pandemic especially, affected many for the better or for the worse. By doing so, many are illustrated on the concept and notice that there is a solution to their problem. One sentence you wrote that stood out to me was “Adjusting is a hard concept, but with a positive mindset and finding the good in situations, the stress can be lifted” because it focuses on what is important in life. In order to move on and grow, one needs to focus on the good things in life and if there seems to be none, we should create it. Thank you for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next since you are open about the experience many went through; the truth behind the pandemic and the impact it had on human life. -Andrea
  • Madai's Mar 28, 05:00 comment on Women in a dollar?
    Veronica, I am impressed with your post, ¨Women in a dollar¨. I think it was very well written. One sentence you wrote that stood out to me was when you stated ¨A group of women made a campaign to raise their voices and that women be printed on a dollar, but the government rejected that idea.¨ I never knew this was a campaign. I would like to be a part of this movement because it is for a good cause and I would like to see this come to act. Another sentence you wrote that I most definitely agree with is ¨I people are scared to let the women be more recognized they need to open their minds more because people have other ideas.¨ I believe this is true because a lot of people try to belittle women and not let us speak on our ideas. They think we shouldn’t have the same rights as men. I cant wait to see what you write next. Madai

  • Brenda Ornelas's Mar 28, 04:05 comment on A guide to what Russia and Ukraine want from talks- and where the red lines are
    Dear Paul,  I am very intrigued with your post, “A Guide to what Russia and Ukraine want from talks – and where the red lines are” because it gives us a little more in-depth information about the current events of Russia and Ukraine. I think that this war has already caused much pain and loss for many on both sides.    One sentence that stood out to me is: “Ukraine would like an immediate cease-fire and retreat of troops, and says it would take a long-term pause on future NATO membership if they got security guarantees from the United States and other countries.” I just hope that with this the war can come to an end very quickly.  Thank you for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I would like to be kept up to date with this war.  – Brenda Ornelas
  • Arnold Diaz's Mar 28, 03:29 comment on Social media is bad for the brain!
    Dear Jeremiah, I am shocked about you post of “social media is bad for the brain” because its hard seeing people and kids suffer what they go through when people bully them through the internet. Its sad how people are suffering from depression and anxiety. One of your sentence that stood out to me was, ” people are going to keep on getting these types of feelings because people think they can say whatever they want behind a screen and if it doesn’t affect them then either they don’t care or want to have fun bullying you because they think it’s all fun and games”. I think that that’s really sad what they go through, and doesn’t affect the other person. Thanks for your post Jeremiah.

Its inspiring to see that they are chasing after their dreams to accomplish them. Women have been through so much and its good to see that more black women are holding political office. One sentence you wrote that stood out to me was: ” America has given women the right to vote through the 19th Amendment, yet there are still many obstacles that women of color face, specifically Black women.” Even through women were given the right to vote, they still had a lot of challenges to face. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because I like how you explained things. Lesly

  • James's Mar 27, 22:41 comment on Emotions of art
    Dear Ruby, I enjoyed reading your post. Your writing make me feel happy that there is people who feel the same about music. Music has the ability to evoke powerful emotional responses such as chills and thrills in listeners. Positive emotions dominate musical experiences. Listening to music is an easy way to alter mood or relieve stress in my experiences. A sentence that stood out to me that you wrote was “Art itself makes me feel prideful, or in other terms cocky when it come out well and people approve whether it is good or terrible because they see the emotions put through it”. Art and Emotion. One central feature of aesthetic experiences is their ability to arouse emotions in perceivers. Thank you for writing. I look forward to your next writing.

  • Aaliyah Martinez's Mar 27, 00:42 comment on Glasses are Helpful
    Dear Fatima, I admire your post, “Glasses are Helpful” because I myself wear glasses and find them to be unique. I can see how to some they might find them annoying since I do sometimes. But I like the way they also frame my face and are an accessory you can customize. It can be a struggle though with how pricy they are becoming. It took a good amount to get the glasses I needed with extra protection from screens. One sentence you wrote that stands out to me is: “I think that glasses create a very significant change in people’s lives”. I think this is so true because glasses become a part of you and are one of the many ways to represent yourself. Thank you for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I like how appreciative you can talk about these features that many who wish they didn’t wear glasses.

One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: ” Poverty can be fixed in many ways such as access to clean water, sending children to school, and having shelters that helps people with poverty.I think we all can help to this people because we have to support each other, and help others.

    Dear, Monica I am touched by your post, ” Helping others” because you talk about how Henry Sowells is helping people since covid happened. I also learned that he helped Bethers Cares local shelter. One sentence you wrote that stands out to me is “So far, he’s made about 170 producers and raised more than $7,000.” I think this is amazing because he is helping people with his skills. And it’s surprising how he has already raised $7,000 to help others. Thank you for writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I really enjoyed what you wrote about someone taking the time and effort to help others in these hard times.

  • Maritza's Mar 25, 08:58 comment on Cars That Stop Drunk Driving…
    Dear Sophia, I was really intrigued by your post! I had no idea that developments to combat the problem of drunk driving accidents were taking place with self-driving cars. Though, it really makes sense since newer advancements in cars are developing all the time. I also hadn’t realized this was so high in demand due to the Infrastructure Bill. I liked how you included the opposing opinion against this anti-drunk driving prevention method since it is important to know all the risks with something like this. I also appreciated how you included statistics of the deaths caused by drunk driving. It really shows the extent of the problem and how important this issue is. Personally, I am leaning more towards yes on this debate since I feel like it could do a lot of good. Maybe not the idea now as is, but with adjustments and safety measures I feel as though an anti-drunk-driving mechanism in cars could save lots of lives. Thank you for writing this post. I’m glad I was able to learn something new! I look forward to you next post as I really enjoy your ability to summarize a topic, present multiple perspectives, and provide some evidence for each perspective. – Maritza ^^*

I think this is impressive because Frida Kahlo and Malala Yosuafzai were both very strong women that were independent and wanted equality. They both also suffered a lot throughout their lives. One sentence you wrote that stands out to me is: “When we compare Frida Kahlo to Malala Yosuafzai, it becomes clear that both of them want to be independent, and have rights for women.

    Dear Valeria Your post is interesting it got me thinking, I would prefer having breaks in the school year every now and then because it takes off the stress I have. A sentence that caught my attention is ¨Having school all year-long will not create an extension of how many days we attend but it’ll only create much shorter and more frequent breaks throughout the school year¨ some breaks are necessary for young students which is why I think it would be a good idea.
  • Lexany's Mar 24, 14:54 comment on Fear of Clowns
    Dear Brandi Alvarez, I am in agreement by your post “Fear of Clowns” because I am also afraid of clowns and it makes me wonder why they wear what they wear. I wonder if thats how they express their personality or if the happy colors just mimick the happiness around them and they are portraying that image. One sentence you wrote that stands out to me ¨… the cosmetics of a clown might be disturbing. It conceals not only the individual’s appearance but also their emotions.¨ this stands out to me because makeup on everyone really does hide who they truly are beause it makes so many people look different. Thanks for writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because I realted to your writing so much! Lexany
  • Fatima's Mar 24, 00:41 comment on Should schools be allowed to check your social media?
    Dear Lesly, I am impressed by your post, ” Should schools be allowed to check your social media?” because that is a very interesting question. From the example, you mentioned a young girl being upset for not making the cheerleading team and posting a video with profanity. She showed her form of frustration, anger, and madness she was expressing herself. And for doing that she got suspended because the school inferred with the video and believe she should be suspended for it. I think what the girl did was express herself. Although I don’t agree with her form of expressing her frustration I can say it is common in teenagers. She was upset and that is understandable. The young girl has the right to express herself and has the right to freedom of speech. I believe that school should not have gotten involved because as you mentioned, ” It was out of school and not on a school device, where and when this post was made. There was no threat or bullying to a specific person.” Therefore how come the school suspended her? Schools should not be allowed to check kids’ social media posts I believe that it is something private and out of authorities’ hands unless there is danger intended. Thank you for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because we share the same opinion of schools not being allowed to check our social media posts. Fatima
  • Kraig Kailey's Mar 23, 00:51 comment on What Does Too Much Screen Time Do to Children’s Brains?
    Isabella, Thank you for the thoughts that you shared in your post. I am currently a college student learning about writing blogs. I have read your blog and commented on my own blog for my class to review. Here is a link to my blog if you would be interested in checking it out. I really enjoyed the content as it demonstrated the effects of too much screen time. https://kraigk42.edublogs.org/wp-admin/post.php?post=7&action=edit
  • Raniyah's Mar 23, 00:42 comment on Hate Crime
    Thank you so much for realizing how much of an important topic this is to recognize! yes, people are out here getting hate for what they believe in! As Martin Luther King was hated by many because of what he believed in and standing up for what he believed in. Yes! I love that part of my poem too! No matter what black people will stand to stand together and rise! You’re welcome, it was my pleasure to write this poem! And yes I agree it is a touchy subject, which made it hard for me to write this poem but I knew this topic had to be spoken, about and poetry was the best for me to express my feelings about this subject. Thank you for taking the time to read my poem and comment on it!
  • arlette's Mar 22, 18:46 comment on Unhealthy food
    Dear Monica  I am impressed by your post, “ unhealthy food “  because it is impressive how you were talking about how junk food is not good for our bodies. I think it’s impressive that this kind of food contains high levels of sugar, salt,or fat.  One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “ lying to people just to sell their products is not a right thing to do because people’s health is more important than their products”. I think this is bad because sometimes people could die from not eating healthy. In reality, it might be something that should be consumed infrequently or not at all.  Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next. Arlette mosqueda
  • Valarie's Mar 22, 04:42 comment on The Pros and Cons of Working as a Veterinarian
    I am startled by your post, “The Pros and Cons of Working as a Veterinarian” because I never put into consideration what a veterinarian might go through mentally when there is an unfortunate accident. This information is something new to me because I would’ve never thought there would’ve been a chance of being in moral distress or depression in this type of career. I do understand now as to why they might feel that way.  One sentence that you wrote that stands out to me is when you said, “ So vets nowadays are being taught how to deal with moral distress as well as learning how to focus on self-care.” I feel like what they’re doing is very beneficial and helpful to veterinarians. Making sure that they are mentally doing well only creates a much better working environment for them and as well for the patients that they interact with. I was awestruck when I read this because it shows that they truly do care for them.  Thanks for your writing. I look forward to what your write about next regarding this topic because I am also striving to become a veterinarian. Looking at the pros and cons of this field will help me out by learning more about this profession whether it’s good or bad. 
  • Yaseen's Mar 21, 15:17 comment on What Does Too Much Screen Time Do to Children’s Brains?
    Dear Isabelle, I am intrigued by your post, “What Does Too Much Screen Time Do To Children’s Brains,” because it is really evident today especially with the rise of technology in our society. I think exposing children to technology at a young age can affect them in many negative ways because they don’t know how to deal with it. One sentence you wrote that stood out for me is,”Screens emit blue light which is the equivalent to daylight when a child looks at a screen before bed it stimulates and wakes up their brain which causes troubles sleeping because their minds and their brain activity are running at peak speed which is not optimal for sleep.” This really interested me mainly because I witness this, especially with little family members of mine. Even after their eyes are off the screen, they can’t get enough of them. Thank you for sharing your post. It was really informative and interesting to read about because I can relate to it a lot and it is something that is evident and important in today’s society that not many people speak out on. I hope to come across more of your posts. Yaseen
  • Ruendi's Mar 21, 08:05 comment on A guide to what Russia and Ukraine want from talks- and where the red lines are
    I am impressed by your post, “A guide to what Russia and Ukraine want from talks- and where the red lines are” because it really goes and states what is happening in the war between Ukraine and Russia. I think it is interesting how the conflict occurred and why it occurred.  One sentence that you wrote that stood out to me is, “Zelensky believes that the negotiations recently have gone well, signaling that an end to the war may come soon.” This sentence stood out to me because it is good news that the conflict that is happening between Ukraine and Russia will finally come to an end in the near future.  Thank you for your writing. I look forward to what you write next because you have some interesting topics that are recent. I would like to continue to hear what you have to say about Russia and Ukraine and what your opinions are about this war.  Ruendi
  • Maria's Mar 19, 15:47 comment on Russia Invades Ukraine
    Dear Christain: I am surprised  by your post, “Russia invaded Ukraine,” because it is very sad that Putin is attacking only because he sees Ukraine joining NATO as a threat. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “The world responds by their reaction and not helping Ukraine because they believe that it would cause war and they don’t want to do it. ” I think this is reasonable but not so much because it’s true we don’t want to cause another WW so we could just help Ukraine with resources or whatever else we can. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write in your next post. Maria
  • Leah's Mar 19, 02:48 comment on Judged because of our skin
    Dear  :Niazia I am intrigued by your post “judged because of our skin,” because often times people forget to think before they speak. Especially being that there is so much social media and since they arent face to face they fail to remember they are still human and with feelings and emotions.people tend to mistreat others due to their skin or appearance and it is very unfair. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: ¨But because all you seen was a place full of undeserving colored people ,They couldn’t enjoy their lives and their hopes and dreams have gone away .¨I think this is strong because just because of one persons made up stereotype many people follow it. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because this was a very strong poem  Leah Rodriguez
  • Ivan's Mar 18, 21:14 comment on A trip to space
    Dear Ashley, I’m intrigued by your post “A Trip to Space” about your discussion of the advantages and disadvantages of traveling to space. Because we or I may soon want to travel to space soon and know the pros and cons of it. Also, wy I’m interested in your post is because space is a cool thing that may break world records. one sentence that stands out to me is ”Although, in order to travel you’d have to go through extensive training, spend a great amount of money, and will have to deal with the dangers of spaceflight”. I think that this is interesting because you have to have a lot of money to be able to go to space. Thanks for writing this, I will be looking forward to your next writing because this really caught my eye.
  • Angel G's Mar 18, 18:24 comment on Art or Not?
    Dear: Tesh I enjoy reading your post ¨Art or Not?¨ because video game artists should be in museums like other types of arts. The creation of video games and the effects they have on the people who experience them and that is why it’s art and deserves to be in a museum with the other art. That is why I think that video games art should be in museums.  One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is ¨ Like a painting created by an artist, a book written by an author, or a poem written by a poet, the creation of video games should be considered as a form of art due to the effort put into their creation and the effects they have on the people who experience them.¨ I think this is amazing because it shows that an artist is someone who creates something like an author, a poem written by a poet, and a sketch artist. That is why video games artists are a form of art and should be recognized.   Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because you writing help me remember that video games are a tip of art like other form of art and should be recognized.  Angel

    Dear Paul : I am intrigued by your post, “A guide to what Russia and Ukraine want from talks- and where the red lines are,” because talking about the demands of both sides of Ukraine and Russia negotiations. Ukraine is recognized for the independence of the Donetsk and Luhansk people.  One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “Ukraine would like an immediate cease-fire and retreat of troops, and says it would take a long-term pause on future NATO membership if they got security guarantees from the United States and other countries. ” I think this is important because it talks about how Ukraine would like to be in the future if Nato had security guarantees from the United States. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because your writing was interesting and talks about the current problem right now.  Eliana

  • Saray's Mar 17, 15:43 comment on To protect Black women and save America from itself, elect Black women
    Dear Arual, I am impressed by your post, “To protect black women and save America from itself, elect Black women” because it is impressive how nowadays, we see a lot more Black women holding political office and it’s inspiring. There are now more votes toward women after so much racism and harassment.  One sentence that you wrote that stands out to me is: “Even though the odds are against them, black women are turning into their Blackness and chasing after their dreams.” I think this is awesome for these women to chase their dreams no matter the situation.  Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I like your explanation of how far women of color have gotten as of today. Saray
  • Alejandro's Mar 17, 15:26 comment on Halloween Safety During COVID-19
    Dear fatima I am very impressed by your “Saftey Precaution During Halloween” because it is very hard asking for candy since there is a lot going on this time around. You never know who can be sick or if they’ve been around anyone who has been sick. I’m saying this because there has probably been a good amount of people that got sick due to others deciding to continue to go out and be around others. I think it’s better if you were to stay home this Halloween but if going out to still follow the COvid protocols to keep the surroundings safe. Thank you for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because there are many upcoming events that a lot of people like to gather but probably won’t follow these protocols. I also like learning about how people go about doing things differently in this pandemic we are going through. I would like you to continue telling about your thoughts in upcoming Covid-events Alejandro
  • Perla Hernandez's Mar 16, 16:14 comment on Discrimination In LGBTQ+
    Dear Karen, I would say that your post is really understandable because it would be talking about people who are mistreated people that like the same gender which thereś is nothing wrong with that but many people make it a big deal. A sentence that makes this whole post stand out would be ¨just because people express themselves they get treated very unfairly and can even be led to either verbal or physical abuse.¨ thank you for sharing I would totally love to see more about your post.
  • Ashley Galvez's Mar 16, 15:29 comment on What Does Too Much Screen Time Do to Children’s Brains?
    Dear, Isabella I am interested in your post, ¨What Does Too Much Screen Time Do To Children´s Brains,¨ because children who have a screen cause multiple harmful effects. This causes them to lose interaction with others by being glued to the screen. One sentence that you wrote that stood out to me is ¨At a young age exposing your child to screen can cause numerous harmful effects such as: behavioral, social, sleep, vision, physical, and weight problems.¨ I think this is important because parents giving their kids a screen it´s causing them bad effects, it may not happen right now but later on. Thanks for writing, I look forward to seeing what you write next time because I like the way you stay on the topic and do not focus on something else. Ashley Galvez
  • Destiny's Mar 16, 15:25 comment on What Does Too Much Screen Time Do to Children’s Brains?
    Dear Isabella I am surprised by your post, “What Does Too Much Screen Time Do To Children’s Brains,” because not only does too much screen time affect children mentally but also physically. It baffles me that it is more common for young individuals to have lots of screen time. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “. As well as the lighting of the screens can cause headaches and even migraine problems later in their life as well.” I think this is important because it’s a long-lasting effect on their brains. Parents should definitely limit screen time. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I like that you are bringing lots of attention to this topic which isn’t explained a lot as it should be. Destiny
  • Natalie J's Mar 16, 15:17 comment on To protect Black women and save America from itself, elect Black women
    Dear Arual, I am intrigued by your post, “To Protect Black Women and Save America From Itself, Elect Black Women” because it brings awareness to the fact that in order for Black women to see a change they need to be the change and we can help them get there. Being the change and fighting for what they want is the only way they will be heard because America had ignored them and pushed them away for long enough. One sentence you wrote that stands out to me is, “Even though the odds are against them Black women are turning into their blackness and chasing after their dreams, even with all the limitations.” I think it is important and inspiring because they are not letting anything get in the way even though the journey to get what they want is filled with obstacles. This shows others that they shouldn’t stop from chasing what they want and fulfilling their goals. Thank you for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you wrote next because it brings awareness to real world problems. It also inspiring ti others to never settle for less. -Natalie
  • Emmanuel's Mar 16, 06:41 comment on Art helps me express who I am
    Dear Alaa, I am excited to learn the ways that art may help you express yourself or represent yourself. One sentence that stands out to me is in the beginning when it says, “My Shadow box represents the dominant and counter narrative of my identity as a Muslim, Middle Eastern, Arabic speaking woman from Yemen” because this really gives the reader a better understanding of your background. Thus can help see the connection with ar that helps you express yourself. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because I think it is interesting to learn about different cultures. I also look forward to what you write next because I also like art and also look for new ways to do things which can be shown as an expression.
  • Vivianne's Mar 16, 06:35 comment on What Does Too Much Screen Time Do to Children’s Brains?
    Dear Isabella : I am interested in your post, “What Does Too Much Screen Time Do To Children’s Brains,” because exposing kids to too much screen time has a lot of negative side effects to these kids. As the light from the phone messes with their minds and how endless hours on these screens affect kids physically. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “So when these screens mess up their sleep patterns it also takes a toll on their mental health as the brain is still so vulnerable and susceptible to change.” I think this is important because parents/guardians should see how bad a lot of screen time can harm kids and it is best to limit this time. It should be especially limited at night so they can sleep well and have no eye pain. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because I liked the way you worded your information. As well as, having lots of different types of information to back-up your claim. Vivianne

One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: The world responds by their reaction and not helping Ukraine because they believe that it would cause war and they don’t want to do it. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I like how you have informed us about the war that is going on in Ukraine and how it started.
  • Ashley P's Mar 16, 00:28 comment on A trip to space
    Hello Gabriel! Thank you so much for your input. I didn´t consider most of what you mentioned, it gave me another perspective. The points you made were valid and realistic… It seems like you have put much thought into this, would you be interested in traveling into space, or is it just an interest? Once again, thanks for the input!
  • Ashley P's Mar 16, 00:24 comment on A trip to space
    Hi Sam! The wonder of space may indeed be ruined, but I feel as if the funding given by the ¨ultra-rich¨ would push us towards the advances. I guess one way or another we could benefit from this. Although, I would be envious of those who can actually take this opportunity. Would you like to travel space? Thanks for responding!
  • Ashley's Mar 16, 00:18 comment on Inspire
    Dear Laura, I am fascinated by your story, Inspire, because you were very straightforward with all the hardships you encountered and were not afraid to acknowledge how sometimes the lack of encouragement from teachers may impact us. It really makes the audience reflect and make connections to times they have also been in a similar situation. One phrase that was mentioned in the video that stood out to me was, ¨It is important to know our students and how they feel¨. I think this is important because sometimes there may be a lack of communication that may rise and it usually doesn´t end too well for the students. Even for you, the teachers failed to recognize where and why you truly needed help. Thank you for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because you aren´t afraid of telling the truth of your own experiences. You have a strong voice and I truly admire that. Ashley
  • Joseph Cisneros's Mar 15, 20:59 comment on Tensions Rising between Russia and Ukraine
    Dear Rene, I am impressed by your post “Tensions Rising between Russia and Ukraine”, because it is shocking to see how a country can go to war with others for no reason other than their leaders being angry. Putin has full control of Russia. A sentence you wrote that stood out to me was, “President Biden warned Russia if they invade Ukraine, the White House is prepared to retaliate with harsh economic consequences.” This impresses me because Russia probably has no intentions on having a war against Russia. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because this is something very important for us. Joseph
  • Brian G's Mar 15, 20:59 comment on Gun Control in The United Kingdom
    Dear Henry, I am exciting about your article, Gun Control in The United Kingdom because it gives out information about what laws they have towards the gun control. It also provides information in why the government believe what they should do between there gun control and how it could provide them. One sentence you wrote that stands out to me is, “With the removal of a majority of handguns from the environment violent crime continued with perpetrators finding other ways to arm themselves. According Knife offences hit record high in 2019 in England and Wales | UK news | The Guardian, In 2019 the United Kingdom recorded a record number of knife crimes with 45,627 offenses.” The reason is like this quote is because it shows even with the guns being removed well less used they was still the same amount of violence going on with the other weapons. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because you give a good amount of details and information on what is happening in that part of the country with the amount of guns.

This number is a huge gap between these two teams.  I want to appreciate for your writing, I would be interested of what will you write about.  Jesus

    Arooj, I really like all the details and how you describe everything nicely. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “One negative outcome is that some people are getting depressed and many people are dying because of the virus. ” This is sad because it has getting better now but many people have died. Another sentence that I agree with was ” I assumed that the COVID-19 was going to end soon after it began, but it changed everything.” I agree with this because I also thought the same bit sadly many things have changed.

    Dear, Jaden I am impressed with your poem, “Aren’t We All The Same” because of how you said that many people think that we’re different because of how we look or the color of our skin. I also am impressed by when you said that when will you look at me without rudeness and grief. One sentence you wrote that stands for me is “I believe by sometime in life that we will have a great world where people aren’t made fun of for how they look, or for the color of their skin.” I think that this is very powerful because I think that it’s time for everyone to finally get along and not have hate towards each other. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I like the way you express yourself. Hely
  • Raymond's Mar 15, 15:49 comment on A trip to space
    Dear Ashley, I’m intrigued in your post “A Trip to Space” since you discuss the advantages and disadvantages of traveling to space. I also believe that the job should be left to the professionals because they are better equipped to conduct space exploration. Professionals, in my opinion, are better off researching than civilians.  “As amazing as this sounds, I do not believe we civilians should interfere with space flight… it should be left to the pros,” one of your sentences stood out to me. This is intriguing to me since you expressed your viewpoint, and I agree with you. Professionals would be better at this task, I agree.
  • Griselda's Mar 15, 15:49 comment on Black Wall Street
    Dear Sianni Thank you for bringing awareness to your post! I think it’s disgusting how someone could fake sexual assault and have no consequences. This is not about sexual assault but rather being racially profiled. A sentence that stood out to me would have to be, “This is an incident that caused the death of around 300 residents. 9,000 of these residents were left homeless after the incident. 1,200 buildings were left completely destroyed. $50-100 million in property damage alone left unpaid.” It’s shocking how much damage something can cause and be relentless with their actions! They feel no crime has ever been committed and ignored it. Thank you for writing this post this has made me want to learn more and make people get inspired as I did. I’m looking forward to your next post! GVB.
  • Andrea Alvarez's Mar 15, 15:47 comment on To protect Black women and save America from itself, elect Black women
    Dear Arual, I am interested in your post, “To protect Black women and save America from itself, elect Black women” because the fact that Black women have the hardest lives to live is very true and a very big problem. It’s a problem that isn’t really spoken about or taken seriously by people so it’s very good that you wrote about it. One sentence that stands out to me is: “Even though the odds are against them, Black women are tuning into their Blackness and chasing after their dreams, even with all the limitations.” I think this is very inspiring and heartwarming because even with all the odds that are against them they are still striving for their dreams. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next. Andrea
  • Adrian's Mar 15, 15:43 comment on Should schools be allowed to control students’ social media posts?
    Dear Valerie: I am impressed my your post, “Should schools be allowed to control students’ social media posts?” because I do believe that teachers shouldn’t get involved with what students post. On the other hand, if they do get involved it should only be if a student is saying something to a particular person. One sentence that your wrote that stands out for me is: ” Brandi’s parents believed that the school was in the wrong for doing so since it violated her first amendment…” I think this is correct because this student is able to express what she wants on the internet. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what your write next because I like reading things that have to do with people amendments getting violated. I also like the way you explained everything and gave your opinion.
  • Ana's Mar 15, 06:17 comment on The Bodega Dreams
    Dear Cristin: I am impressed by your post “The Bodega Dreams” because I like the way you described “Chino”. Your word choice made it easy for me to imagine him and how he is in the book without reading the book. One sentence you wrote that stands out to me is “.Chino is doing what he loves to do which is going to college, working, married, family, as well being successful in his life but society wants him to think he might do drugs, crime, violence, be a delinquent, because of where he grew up”. I think this is descriptive and gives whoever reads your post a clear understanding of the plot of the book. This is also relatable because I live in a poor neighborhood and my parents are also immigrants. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because you are very informative. I like your choice of words because they are words that I can easily understand. Ana
  • Karen Ser's Mar 15, 05:51 comment on Ethics of Stanford Prison Experiment
    Dear Emmy,  I am very interested in your post about the “Stanford Prison Experiment” because I actually did research on this not too long ago. I didnt think that many people had heard about it until I ran into your post. This experiment was very interesting to me because we were able to see what happens when someone has a lot of power over the weak.  Something you said that stood out to me was, “The prisoners believed that this experiment was reality and that they were trapped.” I find it interesting how they  thought that it was actually happening even though the experiment had only been going on for 6 days. It makes me realize how detached we can be from reality after a certain while.  Overall, thank you for your writing, I really look forward to what you write next because I enjoy reading about these experiments. I would like to know your thoughts on other popular experiments in the future! 
  • Damian's Mar 15, 05:34 comment on White Rhinos
    Dear Joseph, I am impressed by your post that rhinos are going extinct. But I think that there are more than 20,000 white rhinos. I find it interesting that rhinos are so hard to transport because of how big they are. I feel like these rhinos are endangered because people hunt them for their exotic meat. I feel like if the rhinos are endangered in their own habitat they should just all be moved to a different more safe location their population would probably grow faster. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I like u and rhinos. Thankyou and have a good day.
  • Fernando HM's Mar 15, 04:28 comment on Russia Invades Ukraine
    Dear Christian, I was disappointed to read your article “Russia Invades Ukraine,” because Russia has caused a great deal of damage to Ukraine. Ukraine’s citizens are dying, and some are escaping to safer lands. Russia has created a nightmare for Ukraine that will last a lifetime. “The world responds by their reaction and not assisting Ukraine because they fear it will spark war and they don’t want to do it,” you wrote. I believe this is difficult because other countries want to help, and some are supplying weaponry and first aid, while others are concerned that Russia may retaliate for their assistance to Ukraine. Thank you for taking the time to read and write. I’m forward to see what you come up with next because I appreciate keeping up with current events, especially when it comes to this topic. There’s also other news that you could discuss. Fernando,
  • Valarie's Mar 15, 03:21 comment on Positive comments
    Dear Monica,  I am very supportive of your post, “Positive comments” because I honestly agree that social media has had an extensive impact on how people may view themselves and others. It is a problem that needs to be changed as soon as possible because it is really having a negative toll on people’s self-image. It is amazing how an app was created to spread positive comments. This app will truly lead to good things.  One sentence that you wrote that stands out for me is, “ I think it’s a good idea because millions of people daily receive bad comments about themselves.” I one-hundred percent agree with this because I side with you that it is a well-thought-out plan since all it does is benefit an individual. It is really interesting how they made an app to make a difference in social media.  Thanks for your writing, Monica. I look forward to what you write next because I really enjoyed how you wrote about this topic.

    I like how he talked about Philly and how in each part of the story it got more interesting, and how it was kinda relatable. Overall I really liked it and if it was put into a book I wouldn’t have no problem reading it.
  • Perla Hernandez's Mar 14, 18:48 comment on Should schools be allowed to control students’ social media posts?
    Dear Valarie I was surprised by your post, ¨ should school be allowed to control students’ media posts¨ because in my school I have seen any student or teacher say about the school getting into the student’s personal life but have heard other schools go through that so I would say it not a good thing that schools should get into the student personal life. A sentence that stood out to me was , ¨he school isn’t in the place for them to tell her what she can and can’t post¨ the reason for the sentence to be more eye-catching would be because it talks about what is happening and what they shouldn’t do. thank you for sharing, I would love to see more from you
  • Neftaly's Mar 14, 17:59 comment on Hate Crime
    Dear Raniyah, I am really interested in your post “Hate Crime” because it is a important subject to recognize. There are people out there getting hate for what they believe. The way people are being treated is not fair. A sentence that stood out to me is “It took the damage of burning a thriving black community to get Black People to die. But still, we rebuild and rise.” It stood out because it shows the unity. People don’t know how to treat each other equally Thank you for writing, I am looking forward to reading what you have next because it is a touchy subject -Natalie
  • Erika's Mar 14, 17:30 comment on Should We Stop Changing the Clocks?
    Dear Ashley, I am intrigued by your post “Should We Stop Changing the Clocks” because you talk about the negative effects that changing the clocks can have on people. You also say that even though the clock is changed every 2 years it can still affect people. One sentence you wrote that stands out to me is, “Scientific research shows that there are multiple bad health consequences that last from days to weeks.” I think this is interesting because it talks about the negative effects changing the clock can have. Thanks for your writing I look forward to seeing what you write next because you write about interesting issues. And I like how you word your opinion and how you word your information overall. Erika
  • Graciela's Mar 14, 17:22 comment on Positive comments
    Dear Monica, I really appreciate your “Positive comments” post because this world needs to be more like you filled with positiveity. There are cruel people in this world that are so negative they put all there negativity on to other people. I think if more people saw things like this they’ll be more happy fillied with positive energy. One more thing that you wrote that stood out to me is “I learned that social media is often blamed for making people feel bad about themselves but in Asia, there is a new trend that is trying to spread positivity to people.” This stood out to me because social media is all negative, its just people criticizing other people. Maybe everybody should try and start making positivity a trend like in Asia. I strongly believe that if the world was more positive everybody would be more successful. I think more people would be trying and less people would give up. Thanks for writing about positivity. I look forward to looking at what you write next and I hope its another positive subject cuz u tend to inspire people with positivity.
  • Nichole Garza's Mar 14, 16:29 comment on Use Your Breath
    Dear lauren, I am deeply touched by your poem, “Use Your Breath” it is so well written and almost peaceful. One thing that really stood out to me is your repitition of, “Remember to breathe.” I like this because around this quote you talk about the ocean, but i interpret the ocean as life, as life gets hard remember to breath. I think that this whole poem was so beautifuly written. Thank you for sharing your poem with us! I look forward to seeing what you write in the future. -Nichole
  • Linette's Mar 14, 16:28 comment on The Presence Of Discrimination and Racism In Society…
    Dear Isaiah: I am shocked by your post, “The Presence Of Discrimination and Racism In Society…” because it is disappointing to see how many people are still being discriminated against due to the color of their skin and their gender. It is frankly heartbreaking to see that people with a prison record are more likely to be hired than women or minorities.  One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “Employers take advantage of people who will work for anything and will give them less for the same amount of work another person is doing.” I think it is painful to see that even employers feel nothing wrong with putting down a person due to disliking their gender or race. It is unfortunate to think about how many people suffered or were troubled financially by this situation. I also appreciate that you touched on the subject of how many women of color or female Hispanics have lower earning jobs than white women. This indicates that people are still preferring white people over other ethnicities, which is something that we should change.  Thank you for writing and I look forward to seeing what you write next! I appreciate you spreading awareness about the situation and would like to hear you write more about the subject. Linette 
  • Yarelli's Mar 14, 16:28 comment on Saving butterflies
    Dear Monica, I found your post “Saving Butterflies” very intriguing because I feel like they’re animals nobody really pays much attention to. I think that butterflies are very delicate creatures that we should take more care of. One sentence that stood out to me was, “I think we need to focus more on animals because they are a part of the environment.”. This stood out to me because this is something that everyone knows to be true but something that not a lot of people actually take into consideration. I can agree with this because in order for our environment to thrive we need to not only take care of our land but we also need to take care of our animals. Thank you for writing this post.
  • Mia's Mar 14, 15:40 comment on Harry T. Moore
    Thank you, Guadalupe, Most of the time when people are questioned to talk about black activists they are only looking or talking about world-known people like MLK, Malcolm X, or rosemary park. However, I find it amazing how you talk about other people. This man didn’t get ¨populur¨for all the effort he put in. Yet, I find it amazing how you talk about someone with a smaller platform because everyone’s voice needs to be heard.
  • Natalie Flores-Montanez's Mar 14, 15:38 comment on Hate Crime
    Dear Raniyah, I am really interested in your post “Hate Crime” because it would talk about the important subject of what’s happening out in the world. The way the black community is being treated and also that people should make some changes and not just move on without trying. A sentence that stood out to me would be when it states, “It took the damage of burning a thriving black community to get Black People to die”. I feel like this is important because it talks about how African-American people are dying and having to struggle. Thank you for writing. I am looking forward to reading what you write next because “Hate Crime” caught my eyes. -Natalie
  • Jennifer G's Mar 14, 15:36 comment on A Possible Cure for Alzheimer’s
    Dear Karen, I am impressed with your post “A possible cure for Alzheimer’s” because I could only imagine the number of lives this vaccine can help out.   One sentence that stood out to me is: ” There is an estimation of 6 million Americans being affected right now.” I find this interesting because I never knew that Alzheimer’s is affecting this many people. This can be a world-changing vaccine for some. It’s a possibility that it can slow down the progression or even prevent Alzheimer’s and that is really fascinating.  Thanks for your writing, I look forward to seeing what you write next because this was some news to me.
  • Hanady's Mar 14, 15:31 comment on Hate Crime
    Dear Raniyah, Your post ¨ Hate Crime¨ has caught my attention because it’s a very important topic. This post was very eye-opening to me. You talked about real-life events and how they affect the black community and everyone around them. More people should read this just to get an idea of what happened many years ago. The part that stood out to me was ¨ Imagine you as a child playing in your basement and you look up and its flames burning your childhood pavement¨ this stood to because it is sad what young children went through and some point of their lives. Thank you for writing this. I enjoyed the way you described this topic and how you organized everything.
  • Natalie Flores-Montanez's Mar 14, 15:23 comment on Aren’t We All The Same
    Dear Nichole, I like how you started this poem, it’s effective argued the nonsense that racial discrimination is. The way you made the reader give this poem a powerful stance using repetition as well as addressing the issue in our society. I like how you effectively portrayed your opinions and hope to read more in the future. Your doing great! Thank you. -Natalie

    The Death Penalty: Not a Human Rights Violation http://homicidesurvivors.candothathosting.com/2006/03/21/the-death-penalty-not-a-human-rights-violation/ Those who say that the death penalty is a human rights violation have no solid moral or philosophical foundation for making such a statement. What opponents of capital punishment really are saying is that they just don’t approve of executions. Certainly, both freedom and life are fundamental human rights. On this, there is virtually no disagreement. Virtually all agree, that freedom may be taken away when there is a violation of the social contract. Freedom, a fundamental human right, may be taken away from those who violate society’s laws. So to is the fundamental human right of life forfeit when the violation of the social contract is most grave.

It is, solely, dependent upon one’s definitions of “wealthy” and “poor”, as to whether wealthy murderers are any more or less likely than 0.2% to be executed, based upon the vast minority of capital murders committed by the rich, as compared to the vast majority committed by the poor.

    RACE & THE DEATH PENALTY: A REBUTTAL TO THE RACISM CLAIMS http://prodpinnc.blogspot.com/2012/07/rebuttal-death-penalty-racism-claims.html White murderers are twice as likely to be executed as are black murderers  From 1977-2012, white death row murderers have been executed at a rate 41% higher than are black death row murderers, 19.3% vs 13.7%, respectively. “There is no race of the offender / victim effect at either the decision to advance a case to penalty hearing or the decision to sentence a defendant to death given a penalty hearing.” For the White–Black comparisons, the Black level is 12.7 times greater than the White level for homicide, 15.6 times greater for robbery, 6.7 times greater for rape, and 4.5 times greater for aggravated assault. As robbery/murder and rape/murder are, by far, the most common death penalty eligible murders, the multiples will be even greater, as one would expect.
  • Vivianne's Mar 14, 06:54 comment on Positive comments
    Dear Monica: I am intrigued by your post, “Positive comments,” because social media is one of the toughest places to be as most of the time it can be filled with hate. Also, I think we should be trying to find more ways like this to spread positivity through social media. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “ But it is unfair that people have to be paying for good comments” I think this is the upsetting part because though it’s a good trend, having to pay for it seems like you said it’s unfair. I feel like people should be able to do this out of their own kind heart instead of having to be paid to do it. Maybe there are other ways to spread positivity through social media. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because I liked reading about this topic. I also liked the way you worded your information. Vivianne
  • Jeramiah's Mar 14, 06:12 comment on Is raising the minimum wage the right decision?
    Dear Andrea, your post is very helpful ¨Is raising the minimum wage the right decision¨ because it gives you reasons why the minimum wage should and should not be raised. It shows that it can hurt a lot of small businesses but ut also can help and provide for families. I believe that the minimum wage should be raised because all o these prices for everything such as gas, and food are raising to the max and people need more money to provide for themselves and their families. I enjoyed reading your post and look forward to what you have to write about next. -Jeramiah Rivera
  • Alexis's Mar 14, 05:33 comment on Positive comments
    Dear Monica: I am touched by your post, “Positive comments,” because I found it interesting how there are people that are willing to pay certain amounts of money to be complemented with positive comments. This makes me wonder if social media is the problem when it comes to negative comments and to what extent are these negative comments affecting someone that they are willing to pay to be complemented. One sentence you wrote that stood out to me is: “I think it’s a good idea because millions of people daily receive bad comments about themselves. But it is unfair that people have to be paying for good comments.” I agree with this statement as it demonstrates how people nowadays have become less social with each other because of the internet. With no social interaction between people, there won’t be friendships or trusts formed, and usually, when posting or saying something on the internet you are more than likely to be told something negative about it. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to reading what you write next because I enjoyed the way you described the topic with us. I would like you to continue telling me more about what is being done towards the better of these problems. Alexis
  • Evelyn's Mar 14, 05:30 comment on Saving butterflies
    Dear Monica I really liked your post about saving butterflies because I really like butterflies. I agree with you that it is important we save the animals. I found it interesting that Duncan Jurman has been into butterflies since he was 4 years old, Making a garden for these animals is a good idea. Butterflies are very pretty insects and saving them is a good idea so that we can see more of them. One sentence that stood out to me that you said was, “I think we need to focus more on animals because they are part of the environment.” This stood out to me because I agree with you that we need to pay attention to them more. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because everything that you write has something important to say.
  • Leonel's Mar 14, 04:34 comment on Russia’s Invasion to Ukraine
    Dear Andrea, I am glad that you decided to share your views on Russia’s invasion of Ukraine because with the way everything is happening it gets difficult to communicate to people about our views on the whole situation. Especially since so much happens daily, the news is always having to catch up with the current events. One sentence you wrote that stands out to me is “. . . Ukraine’s president, Volodymyr Zelensky has joined his troops and is on the front lines.” I agree with you that this is very admirable to see from a leader as he is willing to fight for his country alongside his citizens. Thanks for writing this and I hope to see what other topics you may speak of in the future. Leonel

    Dear Liyana, I am surprised by you writing on Machismo and find it very interesting. I find it interesting it because In Latin American culture, machismo is a social behavior pattern in which the Latino male exhibits an overbearing attitude to anyone in a position he perceives as inferior to his, demanding complete subservience. One sentence I found interesting you said was “t shows the problem behind certain outdated gender norms and the youth’s understanding of parent legitimacy. It speaks on the complicated relationship between males and females in hispanic households”. I completely agree with you that there is certain outdated gender norms in the Hispanic community. Thanks for your writing.I look forward to seeing what you write next.
  • Jocelyn's Mar 14, 03:54 comment on Should schools be allowed to control students’ social media posts?
    Dear Valarie I am stunned by your post, “Should schools be allowed to control students’ social media posts,” because I have not really heard about schools getting upset about students posts. It is probably because it does not really happen here.One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “Brandi’s parents believed that the school was in the wrong for doing so since it violated her first amendment, ” I think this is interesting because I did not think of the school doing is this as an act of violation to the students first amendment. I think we as students should be more educated about our rights. Thanks for your writing.

  • Andrea L's Mar 14, 03:48 comment on Why are we likely to empathize with anti-heroes?
    Dear Megan, I am delighted by your post Why are we likely to empathize with anti-heroes? since you emphasize how the world has looked through the lens of connecting with the villains. I really enjoyed being put onto perspective from your point of view. One sentence you wrote that stood out to me was, “Typically, we either believe that we are strong people or we wish to be strong people, so seeing a character we are able to identify with gives us hope that, like them, we will have the strength we need to face our own demons”. I think this is important in society today because when having people related to the villains, society will view themselves as being against the norm thanks to these films/books but when a certain film or text shows them getting back on their feet after experiencing so much hatred t gives our society hope.  Thank you for your writing, I look forward to seeing what you write next because your question support what societal views have been created through the characters we portray in text or films. By doing so, you illustrate others as well, thank you. Andrea

    Dear Andrea, I am amazed by your post, “Is raising the minimum wage the right decision?” because there is a lot of controversies about whether or not the minimum wage should be raised. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is ” It’s not fair for the struggling single parents that work a minimum wage job and can barely afford to take care of themselves and their families”. I think this is important because most of the population struggles to be able to afford the basic necessities. Thank you for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next. Karen
  • Jade's Mar 14, 02:17 comment on Why online returns are bad
    Hello Sayra Your post, “Why online returns are bad,” surprised me because I never even wondered what was done with returned products, and I did not expect that they were actually thrown out. This is something I would look for more information on, considering that I am an online shopper. Something that stood out to me was when you mentioned, “People return on average about 25 percent of what they buy online, compared with about 8 percent of what they buy in stores ( upfront).” I think this puts a lot of accountability on us as online consumers AND businesses that sell products online. It would be a great idea to inquire if our favorite online shops deal with returned goods in an environmentally responsible manner and opt to stop buying from companies that contribute to the issue. Thank you for this very interesting writing. I hope to read more of what you write because it is evident that you concern yourself with very important issues, such as our environment.

    Dear Yarelli, I am surprised by your post, “Tensions Rising between Russia and Ukraine,” because it is surprising how after Russia tries to have a relationship with Ukraine they still want to attack them. It’s also surprising how there were some deaths and how Russia sent 100,000 troops to the border. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “I think that whatever happens from now on between Ukraine and Russia will also have some kind of effect on the U.S. given the fact that Biden has already stated and made it clear that the White House is prepared to retaliate in some form one way or another.” I think this is important because who knows how this could end up due to these countries acting against each other.

    Dear William: I found your post “Five Benefits of Cross-Training” very interesting.  I play multiple sports and each sport contributes to one another. Like how you mentioned in your post, playing multiple sports provides some rest for the mind & body which is extremely important for an athlete.  The sentence, “It is also beneficial to do more than one thing because it is common for one to become bored of an activity if that is all one does.” stood out to me because sports must be fun and there are various ways in reaching this fun. One way is by being involved in other sports.  Thanks for your writing.

  • Jonathan's Mar 13, 22:38 comment on Russia Invades Ukraine
    Hey, it is interesting to see that you are still expressing concerns onto the situation over at Europe. The rest of the World are too afraid to interfere because Putin may also see that as a threat and declare war on them too. Ukraine is currently fighting a Country that is larger than them and they are fighting vigorously to the very end unless they can resolve the conflict. I think that the invasion could escalate something a lot worse if nothing is done about. It’s possible that Putin may resort into using nuclear or chemical weapons. They are less likely, but it’s possible if NATO intervenes. The conflict is also affecting the gas prices of many countries, especially the US since most of the oil comes from Russia. What the United States are doing is trying to decrease the value of Russia’s currency to hurt their economy so they can’t continue to fund more in the War. Anything could happen and right now we’re just feeling anxious to see the end of this conflict anytime soon. Jonathan

Reading that there are less than 20,000 means that there aren’t that many left.

I think that this is a very serious and delicate issue. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “There are less than 20,000 of them left in the world.” I think this is surprising and dangerous because although I think that many people do not care because it is a simple animal, it is very important for humanity. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because this topic is very important to talk about and let many people know that this most defenseless animal that we see is very important in humanity. Also, they (rhinoceroses) also deserve help from the people who are wanting to conserve their species. Jennifer
  • Aaliyah's Mar 13, 04:25 comment on Am I Somebody?
    Dear Yniya, I am baffled by your post, “Am I somebody?” because this poem really is relatable to many people and it is nice to know you aren’t the only one going through this. Your poem shows how you can feel both darkness and light, wanting to be alone but not lonely at the same time. What really stood out to me was, “But my darkness loves the company and my brighter side gives in”. Sometimes we end up giving in instead of to keep pushing and that’s understandable. I’m glad you found out more about yourself and have fully blossomed into your own person. It’s a challenge to learn about yourself and your own identity. Thank you for your writing, it’s great to inspire others that there is a brighter side.

    Dear Christopher, I am impressed by your post ” Food Waste” because it’s stunning how much food is being wasted around the world, especially in Nigeria. It’s not their fault they just don’t have things to keep their food from going bad like a refrigerator but for that, you need some sort of power usage. I think it’s impressive how someone finally decided to make a change or at least attempt to change the amount of food being wasted In his region. One sentence you wrote that stood out to me is ” it’s awesome how someone can look at a problem, then make a choice on whether or not they would like to do something about it for the good of others.” It stood out to me because I agree with you I do think that it’s amazing how someone can own up to doing something good based on their own free will. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I like how you think about everyone else and just envision how things would be like if everyone did something about a serious problem. You’re doing a great job keep it up. Felipe. V

    Dear Adrian, I am very impressed by your post ¨Problems of Online Shopping¨ because it is impressive how they throw away brand new items just because they are returned. I think this is a bad situation because they are losing money just by throwing it away. One sentence that stood out to me was that ¨There is an average of 25 percent of items getting returned by people from what they buy online but in stores, there is only about 8 percent of items getting returned.¨ I think this is impressive because the most that are getting return is the online shoppers, not the ones who go to the store.

There are many things people need that they haven’t been able to purchase. It a big crisis having many items that we need, being on low stock. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “ It was horrible because if you need a type of medicine and it was out of stock due to the fact that they were in the containers or if you needed toilet paper and there was nothing.” I think this is important to address because its a major crisis.

  • Luis's Mar 12, 17:25 comment on What happened to all the stuff?
    Dear Jonathan: I am very interested in the topic of choice for your post, “What happened to all the stuff?”, because I think that it is very critical that stores have at least average stocked shelves and not below what it always is because if you think about it, people go in stores and buy the same things that someone else bought the day before or even a few minutes or hours before. So, I think that this is a topic that needs to be discussed in order to find a way to bring stocks back up for the people to be able to buy what they need. A sentence that stands out to me was, “The issue was a huge crisis because every store always had a minimum stock of things”. The reason that this sentence stood out to me is because I think it is a huge thing that is happening and we need to face the issue so that we can have more things at the stores. Overall thank you for your writing. I believe that this is an issue that we need to fix one way or another. I hope to see more about this topic. Luis

The thing that Duncan Jurman has been planning is something awesome because butterflies are popular but rare to see. Make a little garden for them and attack them and see more constant. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is “To bring butterflies all it takes is one flower to start a garden”. I think this is something awesome to do because besides he is helping the butterflies, he is helping to produce more nature by planting some flowers. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because everything that you write has something important to say.
  • Monica's Mar 12, 03:41 comment on Cars That Stop Drunk Driving…
    Dear Sophia, I am impressed by your post, ” Cars That Stop Drunk Driving..” because this problem can cause many conflicts and deaths to many Americans who drive everyday to their work. Many people lose their lives because they are drunk when they are driving. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “This has caused some sort of conflict between whether or not we should continue with that demand and make it possible to do so. Some people believe that we should continue with that demand meanwhile there’s other people who believe we should not.” I think they should continue with the demand because this would be more safety to everyone. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because I like how you give two different opinions on how people are agree and disagree in this topic.
  • Emily's Mar 12, 00:26 comment on Positive comments
    Dear Monica,  I am interested in your topic about people having to buy compliments because this is capitalism at its finest. Having to get validation for random people based on pay isn’t as genuine as you think it is. It has a great impact on someone’s self-esteem creating a more validation-seeking environment. Since this is something that uses the money to buy compliments can give that person a hard time with also managing money too. I think people should physically interact with one another instead of doing it online, getting no social interaction. Although this creates a positive environment online, this uses people’s money on something they could get in real life. A lot of people can be kind in person for free and genuinely mean it. Having to pay for a bit of validation gives that person only a limited amount of options. Like, say they see people giving the same compliments and it isn’t something they can relate to. Compliments come from a genuine interest in that person and how they are as a person. It makes them feel more seen. Thank you for writing about this online chat about how people buy compliments, I look forward to reading more about what people do with the internet.
  • Jonathan C's Mar 11, 22:03 comment on Positive comments
    Dear Monica, I appreciate your “Positive comments” post because this world needs to be more positive. There are cruel people in this world that are so negative they put there negativity on other people. I think if more people see things like this they’ll be more positive. One thing you wrote that stood out to me is “I learned that social media is often blamed for making people feel bad about themselves but in Asia, there is a new trend that is trying to spread positivity to people.” This stood out to me because social media is all negative, its just people criticizing other people. Maybe everybody should try and start making positivity a trend like in Asia. I strongly believe that if the world was more positive everybody would be more successful. I think more people would be trying and less people would give up. Thanks for writing about positivity. I look forward to looking at what you write next and I hope its another positive subject. Jonathan
  • Ruendi's Mar 11, 08:34 comment on Here’s how Russia’s new weapon would leave us defenseless.
    Dear Charlie:  I am impressed with your post because it grabs the attention of how important it is to know what Russia has in their offenses and defenses. I think it’s impressive how Russia and the United States are in a dispute with each other on who has the best and most powerful technology and military-based weapons. One sentence that you wrote that stood out to me was, “Vladimir Putin has since claimed the creation of Avant Garde as a result of the United States creating a missile defense system that no Russian missiles would be able to penetrate. The Pentagon has since released information that the United States is still developing such weaponry as to not leave us completely defenseless in case the worst happens.” I think this was a very important sentence since it really depicts what the U.S. and Russia have going on when referring to their defenses and weaponry.  Thank you for your writing. I look forward to what you have to write about next because you really have some interesting topics and how you go in and give an explanation and not only that, but you elaborate also. I would really like to know your options or thoughts about this too.
  • Laura's Mar 11, 02:59 comment on How Does Having a Twin Change a Person’s Personality?
    My twin sister has domineered me for 40 years. We are the middle children of four. The youngest was spoilt, the eldest a boy crazy wild child who hit me from my first day in school to the age of 20, and our father, a neglectful violent bully behind the scenes after our lovely mum died. Being a twin to a bossy liar ruined my life. She was also violent to me, once stabbing me in the leg. I hid all the abuse out of pathetic misplaced loyalty. I am terribly introverted and afraid to speak up for myself.
  • Rene's Mar 11, 00:34 comment on Saving butterflies
    Dear Monica, I am fascinated by your post “Saving Butterflies” because butterflies are cool insects to learn about. They hold a lot of variety in them, such as growing in gardens. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “all started with caterpillars, there is so much diversity and variety in them.” I think this is cool because this shows how caterpillars evolve into beautiful butterflies. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because it is fascinating learning about the’ insects that live among us. Butterflies hold a variety of ways in our gardens, they make our garden look beautiful. -Rene

  • Ernesto's Mar 10, 22:48 comment on Russia Invades Ukraine
    Dear, Christian (Russia invades Ukraine) I am saddened to hear about your post “Russia Invades Ukraine” because Russia has done a lot of damage to the Ukraines. People from Ukraine are dying and some are fleeing to a better place to live. Russia has given Ukraine a horrible nightmare that will stick with them forever.  One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “The world responds by their reaction and not helping Ukraine because they believe that it would cause war and they don’t want to do it.” I think this is hard because other countries want to help and some are providing weapons, first aid but some are scared that Russia would come after them for helping Ukraine. Thank you for your time and writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I enjoy keeping up with the news, especially right now with this topic. Also other news that you may talk about.  Thanks Christian

  • arlette's Mar 10, 18:48 comment on What’s considered art nowadays?
    Dear Aaliyah  I am impressed by your post, “ what’s considered art nowadays?.” because it is impressive how people think that it is easy for them and other people.  I think it’s impressive how we need to learn how to use techniques, brushes etc.  One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “ I learned that many people believe some things are considered art and some aren’t”.  I think this is awesome because sometimes people like to judge art  but there’s nothing wrong with that. This is  just how we make art by people hating it and viewing it giving you more ideas for your next art work.   Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next. I like the way you describe people that like to do art.   Do you think people have to care if they judge their artwork ? 
  • Reid's Mar 10, 07:41 comment on How World War II Affected American Life
    These two major events — the Great Depression of the 1930s and World War II — had an impact on all sections of American society, but they had different effects on different groups, especially women and African Americans. The Depression-era economy had left millions of Americans jobless, hungry, and homeless. While reading https://ccbank.us/blog/the-american-dream-during-the-great-depression/ blog I realized about many harsh realities of that era. However, it is also true that the war ended unemployment and created a boom for the American economy by opening up jobs for women, African Americans, Mexican Americans, Native Americans, and young adults.
  • Aiden's Mar 9, 23:08 comment on American Means Impact
    Very interesting Essay! I agree with you that being American means contributing to American society. I also like how you incorporated multiple sources into your essay to give different perspectives on what it means to be American.
  • Brenda's Mar 9, 18:58 comment on Hate Crime
    Dear Raniyah,  I am very intrigued with your post, “Hate Crime” because you established the idea of how African Americans have continuously been discriminated against through various points in history. This has gone on for too long and there needs to change.  One sentence that stood out to me is: “It took the damage of burning a thriving black community to get Black People to die. But still, we rebuild and rise.” I think this is interesting because in order for this discrimination to have been recognized it came at a very sad cost from this community.  Thank you for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because others will be fascinated by the issues and devote themselves to making the change occur.   – Brenda Ornelas
  • Julian's Mar 8, 23:11 comment on America Means Inequality
    Hey, I really like how you connected your personal feelings into this essay. Although I strongly disagree with your personal feelings, you did a great job of integrating them, but also pointing out how others have vastly different experiences. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “The country that I see as a land of freedom and opportunity has been a land of false advertising to others.” I think this is important because it sums up your opinion, but also shows an opposing opinion. However, you could make it better by connecting it to people like you saying that the US has given them opportunities is what gives people false hope in the first place. Possibly if people did not speak like this an falsely advertise, others would not be hurt as badly as they are. Another sentence that I liked was: “Declaration of Independence it states, “all men are created equal.” This part of the document was written by a slave owner which highlights the ways in which our country is built on unkept promises.” I love how you were able to connect to how the US has been unequal since the very beginning, and use historical evidence. Have you read “Denial is the Heartbeat of America?” I thought you might be interested in this because of it connects to your point about the declaration of independence. Many people refuse to even recognize that the “founding fathers” were racist, immoral people, and are able to idolize them. It connects to the article because it shows an example of people denying the parts of US history that they feel uncomfortable with. Thank you for writing, I loved how you included many perspectives including your own and were able to get past the denial that is at the heart of this nation in order to recognize its flaws.
  • arlette's Mar 8, 18:50 comment on Saving butterflies
    Dear Monica;  I am Impressed by your post, “ saving butterflies,”because it is impressive how people don’t even talk about butterflies. I think it’s impressive how people should care about butterflies because they are part of the world, we need to learn more about them.  One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is : “ butterflies are beautiful, and there is a lot of stuff we need to learn about them. “ I think this is awesome because butterflies show everyone some  enjoy, they don’t do nothing wrong they just  like it fly to flowers.   Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because I like how you say that everyone doesn’t talk about butterflies as much.  Arlette
  • Leonel's Mar 8, 05:59 comment on The Dangers of Opioid
    Dear Vivianne I am interested in the topic of your article, “The Dangers of Opioid” because I have actually been looking into why or how an addiction is formed. When it comes to opioids it’s a whole different story when compared to alcohol or nicotine. A victim of opioid addiction may experience something known as “chasing the dragon” which is basically the actin where the person will keep upping their dose, or even switch to a stronger drug just to get that same feeling of euphoria and lightlessness they felt the first time. A part of your article that interested me was where you said ” As well as fentanyl being to blame which is a synthetic painkiller. It has been known to be added into drugs or counterfeit pills to make the strength of them even stronger.” I think this is important because when it comes to addicts they will do anything to get their hands of their supply. It doesn’t matter who they buy it from. This is dangerous to the street marker, these people who have fallen victim to addiction aren’t aware of what is going into their bodies. This is the most common reason an overdose could occur, they aren’t aware of what substances they are putting in their body or how much of that substance they are consuming, which could lead to fatal results. I agree with you that something has to be done to preserve the lives of people who are currently struggling with addiction. Quitting isn’t as easy as it sounds and people will need support in order to reach that goal of being able to pull themselves away from the pill. Leonel
  • Fernando HM's Mar 8, 01:57 comment on Discrimination In LGBTQ+
    Dear Karen, I understand your post, Discrimination In LGBTQ+, because people who are comfortable coming out are harassed and bullied as a result of their choice. Others should assist people and make them feel as if they are just like everyone else. Many people who come out are harassed and mistreated, and some of them have to deal with this on a regular basis inside this society, according to one statement you wrote. This is quite significant, in my opinion, because it is a current issue. Thank you for taking the time to write. I’m excited to see what you come up with next because you care about other people’s sentiments. Fernando
  • Fatima's Mar 7, 22:55 comment on Positive comments
    Dear Monica,  I am impressed by your post,” Positive comments” because positive comments are significant in people’s lives. Also because there are people who enjoy putting others down and just don’t care what they say even if it may be hurtful. Nowadays online you will often see many negative comments towards others for simply no reason at times. That is not okay because at the end of the day there is someone behind the screen whose those words and bad comments hurt them. People should be more kind and bring each other up not put each other down. One sentence you wrote that stood out to me was ” On the Chinese internet users have recently begun turning to so-called “praising groups,” where they can pay to be flooded with compliments.” This sentence stood out to me because I think that having praise groups would be significant throughout social media. I also thought that it was a good and bad thing since they are getting paid to do this, on the good it would be that it’s an easy and great way to make money but then again people are getting paid to do it. Although I do think it is a great start to spread positivity. We should often be kind to others and leave good comments towards them. I believe that spreading positivity would create a positive impact on social media and teach people to be kind to one another. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I agree with you on spreading positivity and making others smile instead of putting them down. Fatima
  • Jenifer's Mar 7, 21:36 comment on We Pray
    Dear Dawning;   I am moved by your post, “We pray,” because I like the way you express your words in a poem but at the same time as a reflection. It seems like a reflection at the same time because you talk about how good a prayer is and the good fruits that it attracts.   One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “Tomorrow will be another day of believing and finding our inner peace.” I think this is inspiring because it motivates me that if you had a bad day today, maybe tomorrow will be the best day of all. Just as there are good days there are also bad ones and you should not be agitated by that.   Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because I like this type of reading because apart from being a reflection type, it helps motivate you. Your phrases are a motivation that not because everything goes wrong means that evil wins, if today was not the day, maybe tomorrow it will be.   Jenifer
  • Sayra's Mar 7, 17:44 comment on Should schools be allowed to control students’ social media posts?
    Dear Valarie, This post is interesting. We chose what to post online because it is our social media page so the fact that the school is looking at students’ social media accounts is not right. I believe that schools should not get involved with students’ lives like that even if a post is about the school. This part stood out to me ” Brandi’s parents believed that the school was in the wrong for doing so since it violated her first amendment, it was off-campus when she published it and the school isn’t in the place for them to tell her what she can and can’t post” because limiting what students should post on social media is wrong. If she were to physically harm the school then the school has every right to punish her but otherwise, they don’t have that right.

  • Sophia's Mar 7, 16:27 comment on Positive comments
    Dear Monica, I really appreciated your post, “Positive comments” because it tells us how much of an impact saying a positive comment towards someone can help them. Although I find it really sad that there’s people out there paying for a positive comment. I feel as though they should be given free without requesting them. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “But it is unfair that people have to be paying for good comments. People also have to stop making bad comments to people because it makes them feel bad about themselves.” I think this is important because we need to be aware on how much a negative comment can hurt someone. Thank you for your writing. I look forward to reading what you write next because this one was really an eyeopener.

    Dear Yan: I agree with you on the A score cannot speak for a person, since there are people with great ability who could be overpowered by anxiety and get a bad score on a test like this, I don’t know what the schools think about this so that may be a reason why it is not required.
  • maria zavala's Mar 5, 02:19 comment on Equal Pay for U.S. Women’s Soccer Team
    Dear Sophia: I also believe that they should be getting paid the same amount, as you stated they both do the same thing only difference is the views and that just doesn’t seem fair.  One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is “The difference within their pay is a whole $24 million”. This number is a huge gap between these two teams.  Thank you for writing, I look forward to seeing what you will write about next.  Maria Zavala

    Dear Miriya, I am touched by your poem ” Nothing else to offer” because of the fact that you talked about love. The way you talked about love was very moving. One sentence that you wrote that stood out to me was, “I have nothing else to give you,  so it is a warm and comforting blanket” this stood out to me because when you give someone the love they deserve it is a comforting blanket that keeps us wrm and happy. Thank you for writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because what I read was really moving and touching
  • Jannette's Mar 4, 07:12 comment on Tensions Rising between Russia and Ukraine
    Dear Rene: I am impressed by your post, “Tensions Rising between Russia and Ukraine,” because it is informative on what’s going on in the world. How Ukraine has tried establishing alliances with Western nations. Russia on the other hand has tried to maintain a relationship with Ukraine. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “Russian tanks and guns have set their training ground 186 miles close to the border, they can invade Ukraine in the next few months.” I think this is terrifying because there has been a rise in the death of civilians resulting from the conflict between Russia and Ukraine. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I like the information you give out. Jannette
  • Jannette's Mar 4, 07:03 comment on Discrimination In LGBTQ+
    Dear Karen: Your post, “Discrimination In LGBTQ+,” opened my eyes, and informed me that just because people express themselves they get treated very unfairly and can even be led to either verbal or physical abuse. It’s a very horrible situation. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “people who come out tend to get harassed and mistreated, and some of them have to deal with this all the time within this society” I think this is very sad because no human, no matter what they identify as should go through this. Jannette
  • Ashley M's Mar 4, 03:42 comment on Discrimination In LGBTQ+
    Dear Karen, My eyes really opened when reading your post, ¨Discrimination in LGBTQ+ because it´s definitely a bigger problem than it is made to be. It isn’t right that people are getting negative lash back just because they are expressing who they are. It´s already hard for people to show who they really are so the fact that they have to deal with harassment for it is really unfair and isn´t right at all. One quote that really stood out to me was, ¨This is an absolutely horrible situation that has been going on for a while now because this can lead to depression…¨ This stood out to me because it´s true, this has been going on for a while so why hasn´t something been done about it? Why does it still continue going on? What´s even more horrible is the fact that it clearly affects people emotionally. Thanks for your writing, I am looking forward to your next piece because I appreciate how you not only talk about the situation but also include the feelings of people. -Ashley Medel
  • Saray's Mar 4, 00:30 comment on Hate Crime
    Dear Raniyah: I completely agree with your post, “Hate Crime” because till this day segregation is still going on and people seem to still do nothing about it. African Americans are always put in the lower class and it doesn’t seem fair. It doesn’t seem fair for kids to live in fear. A sentence I agree with is: “Imagine you as a child playing in your basement and look up and its flames burning your childhood pavement.” I think this is really sad, especially for children. They shouldn’t have to go through any of it which is why slavery must come to an end in any way possible. Thanks for your writing. I think African Americans should be looked out for more. The lives of all people should be kept alive and not killed over hate. Saray 
  • Eliot's Mar 3, 23:27 comment on America Means Inequality
    Hey, I find you write really well from different perspectives, but you also write really well tying these new thoughts to older of more current events, such as the wring of the Declaration of Independence, and the storming of the capital in recent years. One thing you said that stands out for me was in response to the “not all men are create equal” quote, you say, “This part of the document was written by a slave owner which highlights the ways in which our country is built on unkempt promises.”, pointing out that the united states was really build on an idea, and has evolved to a more bias interpretation of the the idea of “not all men are create equal”. So, I found this really persuasive as a reader, and agree with this idea of deception of the United States. Really good job!
  • Natalia's Mar 3, 23:17 comment on America Means Selfishness
    Dear Mazada, I totally agree with what you’re saying about “this land of the free” your post was really interesting to read because it makes me feel like I’m not the only one that feels this way. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is “In my opinion, America is a place that has numerous types of flaws.” I think this is very true because there have been multiple injustices and they are going to continue to happen because not everything is perfect.
  • Muna's Mar 3, 23:15 comment on America Means Sluggish and Unhurried Change
    Dear Axel: I really like your post. One sentence you wrote that stands out to me is that “ He argues that many Americans are in denial that unequally systems even exist. It goes so far to say that the denial is deeply ingrained in American government as it was basically built on denial. What he most effectively argues is that denial is what is keeping America from changing in a positive way.” I think this really explains how America acts.
  • Eliot's Mar 3, 23:14 comment on Two Americas
    Hey, I find your writing really in depth, considering multiple different source, and seeing these topics from multiple different perspectives, using The Hate U Give in the end as a final connection, along with your interpretations of the sources provided. One thing you said that stands out for me is ” On the surface we may seem as if we have all these ideals but that isn’t true, not everyone is able to pursue the American Dream.” I found this really intuitive as reader, and agree with this idea of deception of the United States. Really good job, I really like your interpretations of these documents, and the way you use multiple different sources in each or your arguments.

  • Natalia's Mar 3, 23:11 comment on My Strong and Weak Points
    Dear Cristian, I am interested in how your post made other people feel because I had a deep connection with your post. I think it’s something that not that not a lot of people talk about because it’s “taboo”. One thing you said that stands out for me is: “How can I get better at this Habit of Mind is to make conversation with the person in front of me, avoid distractions. listen actively and refrain from criticism or advice-giving, paraphrase, and ask open-ended questions” I think this is interesting because it just makes so much sense. especially as a teen a lot of people take it as I’m just not paying attention. Your post reminds me of something that happened to me. One time I was talking to some people and they called me distracting and I just didn’t know how to respond to that. Thanks for your project.

One thing you said that stands out for me is: “defines America as a scary hardworking place” I think this is interesting because it shows how some people’s views on America differ. Your Animation reminds me of something that happened to me. I have used this in class before for an assignment. Thanks for your project.
  • Adrian's Mar 3, 22:46 comment on What happened to all the stuff?
    Dear Jonathan: I am very into your post, “What happened to all the stuff?,” because there has been many things that people have needed but haven’t been able to get. This can either be a certain type of food, medicine or other product that someone may need in order for them to survive and move on in life. One sentence your wrote that stands out for me is “some examples were that they were stuck in containers having no one to unload them and send them to stores.” I think that this is something that we need to focus on more and get more people to do this jobs so that everyone is able to get what they need. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what your write next, because I really liked how you were able to explain this information in a way that catches my attention. I hope to read more about these times of topics and how they can be solved.

I agree that only professionals should be able to go to space. One sentence you wrote that stood out to me was “I think I should be left to people who have experience with this, such as professionals that have studied this.” I think is very correct because only people who are pursuing a career in exploring space should be able to go.

I think it’s impressive how people can pay to receive kind messages from other people. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: ”  In the U.S. dollars, a user can purchase 3 to 5 minutes of time.” I think it is interesting that you can purchase 3 to 5 min. of time to receive nice comments.  Thanks for your writing.

  • Alexis's Mar 3, 07:18 comment on Hate Crime
    Dear Raniyah: I am touched by your post, “Hate Crime,” because I found it interesting how you were able to explain hate crimes in black communities by giving background or adding examples of different events and people. I enjoyed how your topic was organized into a poem as it allowed the message to be transmitted and interpreted by the audience well. One sentence you wrote that stood out to me is: “The brutality that was done is not going to stop black communities, it leaves us to build up our own opportunities. We are going to fly and take this message nationwide.” I think this is important because it is something that has occurring repetitively towards these groups of people for quite some time now. I find it fitting that finally something is being done towards this and how finally they want change to be shown and demonstrated not only talked about. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to reading what you write next because I enjoyed the way that you described the topic along with how it was organized. I would like you to continue telling me more about other communities and their struggles. Alexis

  • Samantha's Mar 2, 21:08 comment on Russia’s Invasion to Ukraine
    Dear Andrea : I am impressed by your post, “Russia’s Invasion to Ukraine,” because this is occurring right now and many people are suffering with this. And they can’t do anything. They just want to get out of Ukraine to save their lives.  One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “Ukraine’s president, Volodymyr Zelensky has joined his troops and is on the front lines.” I think this is devastating because they should not be going through this. They should not be having a war because with all this happen of COVId-19 many people were sick and many people were dying and Russia wants to kill more people. This is not fair. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because I have an interest in what Ukraine is going through. And what they are doing to save their lives and other citizens too.  Samantha.
  • Jade's Mar 2, 19:00 comment on White Rhinos
    Hello Joseph Your post, “White Rhinos” raises my concern about the world because it shows how animals have to be protected by humans from other humans. Having to be forced with the choice to transport these animals from their natural habitat is an extreme measure but sadly it must be taken because of poachers. Something that stood out to me was when you said, “What they are trying to do is get the Rhinos to safe places where they can breed and grow their numbers away from dangerous poachers.” I see a problem with what you mentioned because their natural habitat should be safe and respected. It is sad to see that now they are facing extinction because humans cannot respect the rhinos’ lives. Thank you for raising awareness on this issue, and I hope to see more of what you write because of the insight into world issues you provide.

  • Jonathan C's Mar 2, 17:22 comment on Bullying
    I am very interested in your post. Bullying is a very serious thing and people don’t do anything about it. People will see someone getting bullied and they won’t do nothing. I agree with you when you say that teachers don’t do enough to stop bullying because kids are getting bullied everyday and don’t do nothing. Teachers always say to tell someone you trust if your getting bullied but it’s not easy to tell someone your getting bullied. One sentence that stands out to me is “A girl named Isabella committed suicide after being harassed at the age of 10” because nobody notice or cares until something bad happens. Thanks for your writing I look forward to seeing what you write next because you have a topic that not a lot of people care for and I hope you bring up another topic that is under the radar and I hope you help stop bullying. Jonathan
  • Perla's Mar 2, 16:59 comment on Hate Crime
    Dear Raniyah, Am really interested in your post ¨hate crime¨ because it would talk about the important subject of what’s happening out in the world. How the black community is being treated and how people should make some changes and not just move on without trying. One sentence that stood out to me would be, ¨It took the damage of burning a thriving black community to get Black People to die¨. this sentence is important because it talks about how black people are dying and having to struggle. Thank you for writing and I would totally like to see more about what you are writing about.
  • Lexany's Mar 2, 16:47 comment on Keeping drunk drivers safe
    Dear Felipe, I am intrigued by your post “Keeping drunk drivers safe” because it’s different how they are trying to create cars that detect if you are sober or not sober. This is important because if you are not sober your car won’t start. One sentence you wrote that stood out to me was “These new monitoring systems would be able to detect if you are sober or if your blood pressure is too high. Some of these automotive companies like (Nissan, GM, and BMW) are already installing these things into their cars and testing them out.” This stood out to me because of how they are trying to create cars to be manufactured to be able to tell if you are sober or not. Thank you for writing. I look forward to seeing what you write, next because I was very interested in what you were talking about how the cars that are trying to dictate if you’re sober or not.
  • Eliana's Mar 2, 16:21 comment on Hate Crime
    Dear Raniyah : I am intrigued by your poem “Hate Crime,” because it talks about a very touchy subject that allows people to see things from different perspectives. It talks about a real-life event that the black community went through and how people should make a change about it, not ignore it.  One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “The American Dream was never real.” I think this is important because it explains how black wanted to be in a community where they weren´t treated differently. However, at the time they felt like that wasn´t going to happen. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because it was an interesting topic and explained it good.

  • Karen SI's Mar 2, 16:08 comment on Abortion should be stopped!
    Dear Jeremiah,  I am in awe of your post “Abortion Should Be Stopped” because I 100% agree with you that abortion should be stopped. This is such a controversial topic and I believe it should be banned.  One sentence you wrote that stood out to me was “No human’s life should be taken voluntarily at the hands of another. Abortion is murder.” I think this is extremely important how someone should not have the life of someone in their hands. I don’t think people should be punished for it but abortion should be banned.  Thank you for your writing. I hope to see what you write next because this was an important and interesting topic.  Karen.

  • Erika's Mar 2, 04:34 comment on Should schools be allowed to control students’ social media posts?
    Dear Valarie, I am surprised by your post, “Should schools be allowed to control students’ social media posts?” because you talk about the importance of ones amendment right. I think this is important because it is an issue that can affect people’s lives and it should not be violated. One sentence that stands out to me is, “Brandi’s parents believed that the school was in the wrong for doing so since it violated her first amendment, it was off-campus when she published it and the school isn’t in the place for them to tell her what she can and can’t post.” I think this is important because an amendment shouldn’t be violated. And I also can agree a little bit that she shouldn’t be violated because it was off campus and wasn’t in school at the time. I look forward to your writing because it is surprising how such things can happen. Erika
  • Brandi Alvarez's Mar 1, 22:58 comment on Our bodies are not a political discussion
    Dear Kayla, Your post was very interesting because even though its a vulnerable topic, it is also an important one. Everyone has different opinions but I think that it is up to the woman who is going through the situation to decide. When you said ¨We have fought for the rights of our own. Something like abortion or birth control should not be a discussion made by men.¨ I agree with it because since back then women have always been seen as something below men when it reality, most men wouldn’t be able to survive without women starting with their mothers. Even then, that should be seen as the main point, it is up to the mom; if their mothers chose to have an abortion with them then they would probably see it so differently. Thank you for posting this. I enjoyed reading it and also being able to add my two cents. I look forward to seeing more of your posts. Brandi Alvarez
  • Brian G's Mar 1, 22:09 comment on Abortion should be stopped!
    DearJeramiahI am happy with your post, Abortion should be stopped! because I agree with what you have to say. Also, abortion is something considered a bad thing. One sentence you wrote that stood out for me is “Abortion is murder”. I think this qoute is important because people may be like he still hasnt seen the world yet it cant be considered murdered. But I beleive it is murder because by the team they find out there pregnant that baby in you has a little tiny heart beat. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because I like what you had to say towards the idea for how abortion is bad. Also I like how the ideas you have how people may react towards all that.

    Dear Alyssa, I agree with your post “Utah Backtracking after pro-LGBT Law Passed”, because sometimes it seems going forward is going backward. It seems as if instead of moving forward creating new laws its shown instead that One sentence you wrote that stand out to me is shares “Judge Johansen’s opinion: “It is not in the best interest of children to be raised by same-sex couples”. Its quite shocking they would take a child away from a possible loving couple. The fostercare system is overcrowded and families don’t come everyday to adopt a child. Thanks for your writing.

  • Joseph Cisneros's Mar 1, 02:42 comment on Should schools be allowed to control students’ social media posts?
    I am impressed by your post “Should Schools Be Allowed to Control Social Media Post” because it’s crazy that they got her in trouble for posting her opinions on the school. As long as she wasn’t threatening anyone she should be allowed to say what she wants. One sentence that stands out to me, is “schools shouldn’t also get someone in trouble for expressing their opinion when it doesn’t cause anyone harm”. It is shocking that schools can get away with this without a care in the world. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing you write again because that was a very unique story.

From either keeping us entertained to keeping us in shape as well. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is, “Not only would our health be affected but also our economy.” I think this is interesting because it is true how our health would go down without sports. The reason is that many kids wouldn’t be as active without there being sports. Thank you for writing.

    Dear Brenda, I am impressed with your writing ” Russia and Ukraine” because it talks about how russia is starting to attack ukraine but these 2 states have allies that can join in any time such as us the United States. One sentence that stood out to me is ” Furthermore, since Ukraine is one of the United States’ allies, it can possibly cause President Biden to send troops or heavy artillery to Ukraine.” this means that if another state joins into this fight then more allies will start to join in too which will start another world war.

They don’t know that china has been using it every time they leave their house. They didn’t know that china has now 0 infections. Thank you for sharing this with us and one quote that stood out to me is “what if we are going to public places like Walmarts? Face masks seemed like the thing that would solve the problem.” this quote stood out to me because wearing your mask will help out our country best when it comes to going places where there is going to be a lot of people.

    Dear Rene: I was impressed by your post, “Tensions Rising between Russia and Ukraine” because it was very informative. Also, this was very unexpected for the entire world. No one would have ever though that Russia would ever invade Ukraine. A sentence you wrote that stood out to me was, “President Biden warned Russia if they invade Ukraine, the White House is prepared to retaliate with harsh economic consequences.” I think this is interesting because Russia also told the U.S that if they ever interfered in the war, they would have problems in Russia.

    Dear Jason, I am impressed by your post, “Tokyo fire” because it discusses an interesting story about Mitsu who was a hitman. I think it’s impressive how Mitsu was being looked for although people believed him to be a hero. One sentence that stands out for me is, ” Mitsu slaughtered my family, and his status as a “hero” has put a giant cloak that blocks the horrible things that he has done from the public eye”. I think this is impressive because this shows how you can see the perspective of someone who believes that Mitsu is not a hero rather than someone who thinks he is a hero Thanks for your writing.

  • Jonathan's Feb 28, 05:38 comment on Meaning of Life
    Hey, I was drawn by you post because of the discussion regarding the meaning of life. We have the right to question our own existence and should respect other people’s ideologies and theories. I do agree of the fact that our meaning is to find happiness in this world. Those types of people who are curious as to why they are there in the first place has more self-awareness of their feelings and thoughts. I like how you compare learning the meaning of life as school lecture because being ignorant towards life won’t gain new knowledge in your life. I mostly prioritize happiness as a way towards the meaning of life. Thanks for discussing about the subject that relates towards life. It is a good way to reflect on yourself and to learn new things about it.
  • Valentin's Feb 28, 04:03 comment on Drug Use
    Dear Emily, I really enjoyed reading this, because I also think the media have made drug use normalized and “cool.” I do think the media needs to change how they approach drugs like how they advertise to stop smoking and vaping with the “truth” commercials. We see a lot of movies depicting high schoolers using drugs and having a fun time but they never show the consequences of taking the drugs so it gives the impression on young adults or even kids that taking drugs is gonna be this fun, amazing thing but it will ultimately lead to addiction and a world that spirals until you get consumed and eventually die. I think they leave a very bad impression on our youth and they (the media) should show the not so glamourized side of it. Valentin 🙂
  • Jonathan A's Feb 28, 03:08 comment on Voting Rights to Ex-Criminals?
    Dear Christian I am impressed with your post about¨Votiing Rights to ex-criminals¨ because it’s impressive how they are allowing ex-criminals to vote in Florida. I think it’s impressive how they are allowing them to vote because they pass a law allowing that any ex-criminals are allowed to vote. One sentence that stood out to me was that ¨I think it is both a good and bad idea of allowing ex-criminals to vote. The good is that they should have the rights to vote which can give them a second chance to redeem themselves. ¨ I think they should give them a second chance and allow them to vote/ have freedom.

    Dear Amjid,  I am impressed with your post, “Finesse” because you go on explaining many ways and interpretations the word finesse has and ways of it being said and used. I think that finesse is a cool word since it really has a nice connotation.  One sentence that you wrote that stood out to me was “Finesse is more than just a spoken word, It is a mixture of different actions including your ability to set the tone of a situation and manipulate your body language to your advantage to make a statement.” I totally agree with you since the word finesse means that exactly. It really does create a sense of tone and body language and can also be combined together.  Thank you for your writing. I look forwards to hearing from you and what you write about next because you really do know your words. I would like to hear more about other words you believe are amazing and used in various ways.  Ruendi
  • Luis's Feb 27, 20:58 comment on Tensions Rising between Russia and Ukraine
    Dear Rene: I am amazed by your post, “Tensions Rising between Russia and Ukraine”, because it is crazy that we are living in the world as this is going on. I liked that you added a little bit of background on how in 2014 Ukraine was trying to make allies with countries other than Russia, but Russia wanted to be allies with them and now looking forward to 2022 we see them in a very strange and scary situation for both of them. A sentence that did stand out to me was “Ukraine has tried establishing alliances with Western nations. Russia on the other hand has tried to maintain a relationship with Ukraine”, because if they did become allies than none of this would have most likely not been happening. I find it interesting that thought Putin was the first to strike, but now wants this to end. Is it because he is “losing” the war or some other cause? Thank you, Rene, for writing about this topic as it is hot news right now. I am always up to talk about these types of things because they are very interesting to me. I hope that you continue to post more about whatever the ending might be and your thoughts on everything. -Luis Serna
  • Luis's Feb 27, 20:45 comment on Discrimination In LGBTQ+
    Dear Karen, I am aware of the message that is spoken in your discussion about the LGBTQIA+ community. I think that coming out has been going on for a while, but it has never gone to this point in time where so many people of that regards get made fun of all the time. We could see all over the social media platforms that those regarded as “gay” or always being bullied and verbally harassed. A sentence that stood out to me was where you said that it is a big issue especially now that people are beginning to just get comfortable with themselves. I agree with this because I am sure that before people started coming out as much as today, they were afraid of what might happen and how it may affect friendships as well as just themselves in general. And as seen today, it is proven that they do get made fun of and are dealing with much more hate than those who are “straight.” I really enjoyed this topic because I think that there needs to be some sort of way, we can all get together to spread awareness. I hope that you keep talking about this issue or any other sorts just as long as we get information that is never really talked about. Thank you for writing about this and I hope to hear more from what you need to say.

It was a crisis thing because some of the products weren’t making it at stores and didn’t have enough to put them in stocks. One sentence that stood out to me is “This was a horrible situation because in stores there many products that weren’t on shelves”. I think it was a horrible situation because stores were running out of their supply and their customers would be getting furious about the product not being in stock during the pandemic. Thanks for your writing. I am looking forward to seeing what you write next because I like the situation that was going on with the supply during the pandemic was happening. I would like you to continue writing situation that was also happening during the pandemic. Christian

  • Andrea L's Feb 27, 04:52 comment on Is A Positive Attitude REALLY Important To An Athlete’s Performance?
    Dear Andrea, I am delighted by your post Is A Positive Attitude Really Important To An Athlete’s Performance? since I think it is important for athletes to understand this including other people. By showing what attitude can do to someone’s life, including an athlete’s, I believe that it is essential to share this with others. One sentence you wrote that stood out to me was “Negativity doesn’t always come from the athlete, it can come from outside sources like the things/people that surround them” I think this is important because it spreads the truth towards life. Many have friends who are bad influences and although they might not have a great change within yourself, they can still affect your feelings and overall mental health. This can especially have a great impact on an athlete since they need to focus on being the best version of themselves in order to succeed in their sports field. Thank you for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next since you take into consideration the life behind people which in this case was of those who are athletes. I believe this can be a way of spreading awareness towards important topics like these. -Andrea
  • Jonathan's Feb 27, 02:56 comment on Should schools be allowed to control students’ social media posts?
    Hey, I caught eye on your post regarding schools should regulate of what student’s post on social media. And how Levy’s private right was constitutionally violated from school’s intervene of her post that led to her being punished. I disagree on both the school and Levy because schools shouldn’t be able to control or monitor someone’s private social media, and Levy made a rash decision to bad mouth the school because she couldn’t qualify for the cheerleading team. I get of where you are trying to say about how “schools should have somewhat of a say in what they are allowed to post. For example, they can get involved with something if it deals with hate speech, bullying, threats, and so on.” I believe it is the student’s or her friend’s job to get involved of those situations and can even warn the school about it. I like how the post is relating to the first amendment of the U.S Constitution.

    Dear Natalie:  Your post “Alzheimer’s Vaccine in the Works” is very interesting because I heard of the disease, but never understand the magnitude of the people it affects. The thought of memory loss is very scary. Forgetting things on a constant basis feels like it would be a pain.  One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “Having this disease traumatizes many” I think this is frightening because through memory we remember our best moments, the people we love, and most importantly ourselves.  Thanks for your writing.

    Dear Monica, I am moved by your post “Positive comments” because it is extremely rare nowadays to see individuals being kind to one another on social media. Not only that, but even in real life, there is still a lot of bullying and discrimination that goes on. One sentence you wrote that stands out to me is, “…in Asia, there is a new trend that is trying to spread positivity to people.” A lot of the time when people are involved in trends they are not for the best. They do not consist of making people feel loved and inspired. To make being kind and spreading positivity a trend is one of the best things in the world and best feeling when you are not only the one spreading it, but also receiving it as well. Thanks for your writing, I look forward to seeing what you write next because your posts are very interesting and help me learn about different things that are going on in the world. -Natalie
  • Natalie J's Feb 26, 21:37 comment on Hate Crime
    Dear Raniyah, I am fascinated by your post “Hate Crime” because it is very touching. It is also very eye opening and allows us to see things from a different perspective, or from the perspective most individuals simply choose to ignore. One sentence you wrote that stands out to me is where you say, “But still, we rebuild and rise….The American Dream was never real.” I think this is very shocking yet touching because it demonstrates how many are struggling everyday and being brought down just to fight again for something that was never reala in the first place, yet we choose to believe that it is there is still this hope inside of us that we are fighting with. Thanks for your writing,I look forward to seeing what you write next because you turn real world events into a beautiful piece of writing. -Natalie
  • Veronica's Feb 26, 16:17 comment on Positive comments
    Dear Monica, I am inspired by your post “Positive Comments” because the internet has a lot of advantages that people don’t use. They prefer to spread bad comments then try to help others. Also, cyber-bullying is one of the most common things that is happening today. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “They do this to make people feel good by not receiving bad comments.” I think this is helpful because people have a lot of insecurities and don’t help with their Mental Health. Teenagers have a lot of insecurities and are don’t help their minds to read some comments that are giving bad things. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I like the article that you read and you based to explain more things that are happening in these moments. Also is good to know how other people are trying to change people’s minds. Veronica
  • Monica's Feb 26, 16:13 comment on Phones are above us?
    Dear Veronica: I am impressed by your post, “Phones are above us,” because we all know that phones gives access to alot of imformation, it also gives the opportunities to create new ideas, and use the creativity that we all have. One sentence that you wrote that stands out for me is: ” Technology makes our life easier and facilitates more things than before.” I agree with you because technology give us a lot facilitates things, on where everyone can learn. Thanks for your writing. I look foward to seeing what you write next, because I like how you exlain how phones makes our life easy. I would like to continue telling me about how phones make our life more easy. Monica
  • Evelyn's Feb 26, 07:55 comment on Should schools be allowed to control students’ social media posts?
    Dear Valarie, Your post was very eye-opening and very interesting. I still believe schools shouldn’t be caring about what we post. I think this because this is our privacy and they shouldn’t be involved in what we post in our free time. Even though some students talk about school on their social media I still don’t think school should take it personally and make it a big deal. One sentence that stood out to me is when you said Brandi’s parents said that the school was violating her privacy. This stood out to me because the school shouldn’t be worrying about what she posts even if it’s about them. Your post was interesting and I’m hoping to read more of what you post.
  • Rene's Feb 26, 01:24 comment on Positive comments
    Dear Monica, I am inspired by your post “Positive Comments” because it talks about people making groups inspire people. This will help people in life. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “…in Asia, there is a new trend that is trying to spread positivity to people.” I think this is important because the better in life the better the possibilities. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I love seeing positive vibes around the world. The better side is what I Prefer to say and see. Rene

    i loved the story and how you added the pop pop pop and other sayings in there
  • Raniyah's Feb 25, 18:02 comment on What if Dick Rowland Could Tell His Side of the Story?
    I liked how deeply she portrayed the voice of Dick Rowland and how it was to be a black man and not be heard. I also like the connections she made of what the state/ white mobs thought of the situation, and differing theirs from her point of view. I like how she made it more about her point of view(Dick Rowland) but still connected it to how society viewed it and how they were wrong. I also liked how she connected to the person who did believe her. This was very powerful! I also liked the ending when she asked she should be able to speak up about what she believed in because it make me connect back to him not having a voice and how they immediately believed the white woman and did the massacre. And how even though he is black, his voice still matters! And how we as African-American people matter and what we believe in also matters.

    I love your poem, and how you put so much feeling into it.
  • Desiree's Feb 25, 17:13 comment on Use Your Breath
    Hey Lauren, I think your poem was beautiful and incredibly well written. Your poem was very calming and you can really feel the words. The phrase that stood out the most to me was “catch your shells with open arms and a new net. As you let the waves carry you. Remember to breathe.” I think that line stood out the most because it tells you that when you start new and catch opportunities, as you work through them remember to breathe. I think we tend to forget to breathe and process things. We work so hard that we forget some things flow naturally and we just have to remember to relax.
  • Zahir's Feb 25, 17:09 comment on Black Wall Street

    great letter.
  • Emily's Feb 25, 01:38 comment on Discrimination In LGBTQ+
    Dear Karen, I am intrigued by your post discussing the LGBTQIA+ community. I think this is something that has been a long debate on whether they should have certain rights. I full-heartedly disagree because although everyone is different I know that even with our differences we could get along. Treating someone based solely on the people they love shouldn’t be an excuse to be repulsed by one’s lifestyle; it’s something normal that most everyone experiences. In a situation where a person of the LGBTQIA+ community is being verbally or physically abused, I would try to make the other person who is making them uncomfortable leave. If you’re someone who has to harass someone to get your opinion out then you are narrow-minded and shouldn’t be taken seriously. Putting others down for who they love shouldn’t be an excuse to hurt them because everyone loves someone. Thank you for writing about this topic, The LGBTQIA+ community deserves all the respect it needs because all the discrimination they’ve been through is not something to ignore. I genuinely look forward to what else you have to say in the future.
  • Adalberto's Feb 24, 18:52 comment on Climate Change
    Dear Christopher, I am informed by your post “Climate Change” because it really shows the worsening state of the climate. It’s gotten so bad to the point where we have to use fake snow just for an event. One sentence you wrote that really stood out to me was “Artificial snow is not natural & it should not be used, but since we care so little about our environment we must go to these extents although in this case, it is not necessary since it is only a sporting event; we can live without a sporting event.” I think this is extremely true because we absolutely can live without a sporting event. Our environment should take priority over sports since sporting events come and go. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because this is an issue that grows worse and worse by the day. It’s always good to see someone trying to raise awareness for the environment.

  • Andrea Alvarez's Feb 24, 17:33 comment on Positive comments
    Dear Monica, I really enjoyed your post, “Positive Comments”, because it is very known how social media causes people to constantly compare themselves which causes insecurities. So, it’s very nice to hear that in Asia people are flooding the comments with nice compliments. One sentence you wrote that stands out to me is: “But it is unfair that people have to be paying for good comments. People also have to stop making bad comments to people because it makes them feel bad about themselves. But at the same time, these comments make people feel good about themselves by receiving positive comments.” I think this is very true because it’s sad that people have to pay for these good comments, it should be something that everyone should receive instead of hateful comments. Thank you for writing, I look forward to seeing what you write next because this was very interesting to hear about.

  • Brandi Alvarez's Feb 24, 05:58 comment on The Consequence that my mother is addicted?
    Dear Maria, I agree with your post about ¨The Consequences that my Mother is an Addict¨. Its a sad thing when you know someone isnt caring for their child properly because of their own decision. I really liked when you said ¨…many people instead of solving problems better decide to take doses of drugs…¨ I think this is mainly what I agree with and as we both said, its their own decision. As a parent you put yourself and your kids through that with you and to do that its selfishness. I really enjoyed your post and I hope to see more of your posts in the future. Thank you.

  • Israel's Feb 24, 05:54 comment on Should schools be allowed to control students’ social media posts?
    Dear, Valarie, Your discussion post about free speech on social media has piqued my interest. Mostly because I wrote on the same subject, and it’s always interesting to see someone take on the same issue but from a different perspective. You made numerous excellent comments that made the reading more intriguing and entertaining.  One remark, in particular, stood out to me: “Thanks for writing! I look forward to seeing what you post next, due to how well you articulate yourself. Not to mention how interesting you take on certain topics.” I like your ability to see all sides of an argument.

  • Fatima's Feb 24, 01:43 comment on Dogs Make Humans Happier
    Dear Grace, I am impressed by your post, “Dogs Make Humans Happier” because it is amazing how dogs create a difference in people’s lives. Also amazing how dogs decrease depression,  stress, anxiety, and allow their owner to no longer feel lonely. Dogs allow create a positive environment. They are full of energy and want what’s best for their owners which is why they always protect them. I think dogs are amazing they really create a positive effect within a family. They are adorable and so playful. They make their owners feel loved. One statement that stood out to me was “owning a dog is beneficial.” I would totally agree with this because having a dog is life-changing. Personally, I always loved dogs so much and find them extremely adorable and I also love how they help people in many different forms and are like family. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I like how we share the same opinion towards dogs and how we agree that they create a significant change in people’s lives. -Fatima
  • Felipe's Feb 22, 21:53 comment on Civilian Space Travel
    Dear Lesly I am impressed by your post “Civilian Space Travel” because it is impressive how citizens are now able to space travel. I think it would be very interesting to do some space training and get to see the world from a different perspective. One sentence you wrote that stands out to me is ” you’ll have to go through long training, spend lots of money, and be exposed to the dangers of space fighting”. I can agree with you on this because you do need to spend lots of money on the training and the gear you receive plus I’m sure the training must be very intense because your going into space which the gravity is different if anything goes wrong up their your on your own so you better know what to do. Thank you for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because you involve real-life experiences and you state your opinion. Felipe
  • Reed aka Samuel's Feb 22, 19:56 comment on Harry T. Moore
    Guadalupe, thank you for uplifting the work of civil rights leader and pioneer Harry T Moore. I especially liked that you featured him for his groundbreaking work against lynching and advocating for voter rights in Jacksonville, Florida. I also want to thank you for the great response you made on Sianni’s Black Street Wall Street (U School) . Your response was on point. I really appreciate it when students from different locations can share their perspectives on platforms like Youth Voices. Keep doing your thing. You and my students at the U School give me hope for the future.
  • Valarie's Feb 22, 17:24 comment on We Pray
    I am fascinated by your poem, “We pray” because it captures the beauty and sensations that an individual may feel when they allow their thoughts to fill up with good thoughts while praying. This poem also demonstrates all the beneficial things that come out of praying.  One sentence that you wrote that stands out to me is, “ Our decisions impact the world, good or bad. But good will always trump evil intentions” I strongly agree with this statement because it is a fact in my eyes and I feel like people should have this kind of mindset. We have the ability to choose how our decisions affect our lives and their outcomes of them. Yes, sometimes things don’t go the way you planned it out to be or there are some days where you have bad days but the only things that matter is how you choose to perceive that thought or day and the way that you let it affect you. You should always be thinking positively and your poem perfectly captured this thought.  Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I was truly inspired by your poem and its beauty -Valarie Gonzalez
  • Guadalupe's Feb 22, 16:28 comment on Black Wall Street
    Dear Sianni, I’m shocked and disgusted that white people hold so much entitlement, resentment, and selfishness that they’d be willing to quite literally terrorize and displace a whole black community. It seems like these things are constant, from the displacement of Native Americans to that of African Americans. They all have a similarity, and it’s as you said, “America [always] tries to hide and brush [these atrocities] under the rug as if it never happened”. It’s sick because American history is created with white people’s comfort in mind and never truly portrays the extent to which America has terrorized and harmed minorities. I like that you talk about that newfound appreciation for black entrepreneurs, I think it’s important to lift up their experiences so that there is representation for others. We must also acknowledge how much it took them to get where they are because there are so many socio-economic factors that are against them because of the oppressive nature of white America. Thank you for your writing. I think it’s important to inform ourselves of these types of devastations and I liked hearing your thoughts on this all. ~ Guadalupe Velasco
  • kayla solis's Feb 22, 04:28 comment on School Is No Longer About Learning. It’s About Passing.
    i actually agree with you, one of my teachers are going to be the reason why i an not going to be able to play softball, my biology teacher wont change grades, i am a good student, dont get me wrong, but theres so many other students that take her class and they are failing because she only put in grades for 2 assignments(they also play sports) i am not learning anything from her class because she thinks we know everything from elementary when we did not even know what the alamo was in elementary, i think the public distric is another problem, thos sentitive people cant take anything to their own hands and make it better, its pathetic on how the school system has turned out.
  • Adrian's Feb 22, 01:18 comment on Tensions Rising between Russia and Ukraine
    Dear Rene: I am surprised by your post, “Tensions Rising between Russia and Ukraine,” because it is surprising how after Russia tries to have a relationship with Ukraine they still want to attack them. It’s also surprising how there were some deaths and how Russia sent 100,000 troops to the border. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “President Biden warned Russia if they invade Ukraine, the White House is prepared to retaliate with harsh economic consequences.” I think this is important because who knows how this could end up due to these countries acting against each other. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because I liked how you were able to give out this information. I would like to continue learning more about this topic and how things will end up. Adrian Garcia
  • Brenda's Feb 21, 09:44 comment on Discrimination In LGBTQ+
    Dear Karen, I am very fascinated by your post “Discrimination in the LGBTQ+” in regards to how members of the LGBTQ+ community and how people are still being mistreated on a constant basis. It seems as if every day that goes by something worse continues to happen in society. Why is it that people can’t just respect other people and the way in which they live their lives? One sentence that you wrote that stands out to me is “This is an absolutely horrible situation that has been going on for a while now because this can lead to depression, especially amongst young people.” I think it is very important how you quickly made the connection of mental health due to people not being accepted by society only because of their sexuality.  Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because this is an issue that is continuously seen in society today.  Sincerely Brenda Ornelas
  • James's Feb 21, 01:04 comment on Should Schools Control Our Social Media?

  • James's Feb 21, 00:41 comment on High School Stress
    Dear Victor, I agree with your post “High School Stress” because it’s an experienced that most teens face in their high school years. Including myself faced this problem feeling stress when some sort of final is around the corner. Having so much stress on you can cause problems in your social life and the way you handle things. So you giving example on how to cope with stress is very important and helpful. Thank you for your writing James Duarte
  • Ernesto's Feb 19, 16:59 comment on Glasses are Helpful
    Dear Fatima,   I am impressed with your post, “Glasses are Helpful” because it is impressive how glasses were created so that people could see better. I think it’s impressive how glasses make a huge impact for many people and help them improve their vision.  One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “A negative is that they can be quite expensive and if you are new to them can give you a headache and be annoying or simply just because you’re not used to wearing them.” I think this should not be the case that there are very expensive glasses. They should be quite affordable for many people who are low-income because not everyone has that money to buy new glasses to benefit their eyes.  Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because I like the way you had personal connections with yourself about having to wear glasses. I would like you to continue talking about things like this.

    Dear Joseph, I was saddened after reading this post, White Rhinos. I think that we need to protect these animals at all costs. One thing that really stood out to me is when you said, there is less than 20,000 of them left in the world.” this broke my heart because in just a few years they all could be dead. I think that we need to stop poachers from killing them, otherwise it does not matter how many you try to save and release into the wild they will be hunted again. thank you for writing this, I look forward to seeing what you write next!
  • Alexis's Feb 17, 04:30 comment on Tensions Rising between Russia and Ukraine
    Dear Rene: I am shocked by your post, “Tensions Rising between Russia and Ukraine,” because it is interesting to know how the tension between Russia and Ukraine is not something new but is something that has been occurring for several years. It also stood out to me how the United States seems to have no intention in assisting Ukraine with this but instead only cares about the economic consequences that could result from this incident. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “With this being known, there has been a rise in the death of civilians resulting from the conflict between Russia and Ukraine. In 2021, Russia has sent 100,000 troops to the Russian-Ukraine border.” This is important as it demonstrates how there are actual deaths caused by this conflict as it seems that Russia has control over the whole situation. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I like the way that you explained the conflict and its results so far. I would like you to continue telling me about what is occurring around the world currently. Alexis
  • Saray's Feb 16, 23:35 comment on Aren’t We All The Same
    Dear Jaden  I 100% agree with your post, “Aren’t we all the same?” because it is true that sooner or later people must come to an agreement to treat each other equally no matter the appearance. I think everyone should be treated fairly. One sentence that stands out for me is: “I think there will be a time where people naturally look at everyone the same but the madness needs to come to an end.” I think this is a good idea where it should all begin. Looks should not define us as a person.  Saray
  • Desiree's Feb 16, 20:49 comment on Discrimination In LGBTQ+
    I think the LGBTQ+ community should be treated like the straight community. They should be treated with respect and they should be accepted more. Lesbians shouldn’t be treated as objects and if she’s lesbian that doesn’t mean a man will get two girls. Trans should be able to feel comfortable and not discriminated against for wanting to belong. For wanting to be who they are. And for the boys who think so gay men do not want you. Gay men don’t just like every man they see. Just as though you don’t like everybody you see. And stop making fun of people because of the way they dress. the way they express themselves. It’s not anybody’s place but their own and it never will be. If I were in the situation of telling my parent I would wait until I was ready. If I were in the situation truly I wouldn’t know what else to do. I don’t know how it is to get harassed for coming out or get harassed for already being out.
  • Valentin's Feb 16, 16:45 comment on Tensions Rising between Russia and Ukraine
    Dear Rene, I am very intrigued about the current situation that Ukraine is facing with Russia. Reading “Tensions Rising Between Russia and Ukraine” made me think about how Russia claims Ukraine and they are trying to get it back, but Ukraine declared independence in 1991. Putin wants to make Russia as big as it used to be during the short time it was called the Soviet Union Putin is making it very clear that he wants it back, by sending 100,000 troops to the Ukraine border. That also stood out to me because if he really wanted to take Ukraine why take so long to do it? What I think Biden should do is wait on Russia and if it gets to the point where Russia will fight anyone that helps Ukraine then I think we should be doing the same as Europe. We should be preparing for War. Russia is going to think they can take whatever they want.

Our time is literally being changed which is an interesting concept. One sentence you wrote that stood out to me is: “Scientific research shows that there are multiple bad health consequences that last from days to weeks.” I did not know there were bad consequences because of this but I am not surprised that there are either. I am very interested in seeing if the changing of our time will stop. Thank you for your writing.

  • Madai's Feb 15, 20:32 comment on The Impact of George Floyd
    Dear Aaliyah I am moved by your post “George Floyd’s Death” because it is really sad how someone’s life was taken because of their skin color and for no other apparent crime. I think it’s sad how this world is still like this even after several years of African Americans fighting for their rights. One sentence you wrote that stands out to me is ” However, the prosecutors were asking for a thirty-year sentence in prison. They were asking for more because they were stating that his knee on Floyd’s neck was intended to kill him.” This sentence stood out to me because it’s sad how someone would do such a thing to a person who has done nothing wrong. Thanks for writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I strongly agree with you on how someone could be so cruel to take someone’s life.

  • Christopher's Feb 15, 06:29 comment on Should We Stop Changing the Clocks?
    Dear Ashley : I am intrigued by your post “Should We Stop Changing the Clocks?” because daylight saving time is something that occurs in our lives. I never thought much of its effects on people because personally, I have not felt any. If we want to make the most out of our days a sacrifice must be made, which in this case it is losing an hour of sleep; may throw off our daily routine, but will not be a big deal.  One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “I am not very educated on this matter so I am open to criticism as well.” I think this is awesome because you are being honest. Many people would have made up stuff, but not you because you are honest.  Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because you choose interesting topics. This topic was interesting because sleep is a huge part of my life; I like to sleep.   CHRIS AGUILA

    Dear Rene, I am very intrigued with your writing that is based upon the ongoing tensions between Russia and Ukraine. It gives further information based upon the ideals of war slowly becoming a possibility.  I believe that it is very important for Americans to know of this issue because the nation does have the power to impact President Biden’s decision on how to help our allies (Ukraine).

  • Phillip Batz's Feb 14, 21:40 comment on Threatened Individuality
    “I can’t speak on anyone else’s individuality, but mine, to me, seems threatened.” Some people are privileged enough that they don’t yet feel their individuality threatened, but I think that the majority of us do feel just that. It may not be possible to summarize the complex surface between individuality and society, and it certainly is brave to at least try.
  • Fernando HM's Feb 14, 20:29 comment on College Athletes
    Dear Neftaly, Your post, “College Athletes,” impressed me since it’s surprising how much money can be made from people and they don’t get any of it. They need to make a profit, and they’re not going to spend that much time on the game for no pay. “Schools make thousands, if not millions, of cash by leveraging the athlete’s image for advertisements,” says one of your sentences. The athletes do not claim payment for their efforts on behalf of their institution.” I believe that people should be aware of this because they cover it so well. Thank you for taking the time to write. I’m forward to see what you write next because I admire how well you understand the hardships and obstacles that students face. I’d like you to keep telling me about college players. Fernando Hernandez

    Dear Angel, I am interested in your post “Are electrics worth it or not?” because more and more electric cars have been coming out. It is good to know the pros and cons of both gas and electric cars. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is “The downside of electric cars is that they will lose power faster than a gas car”.

    Dear Fatima: I am intrigued by your post, “Suffering from Food Insecurity,” because it is important to hear about the difficulties of being low income. It can lead to food insecurity and this must be really tough to go through. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “ I think it’s amazing how we can all help each other because we never know the difficult situation someone can be going through.” I think this is important because with the help of others it can really change a lot.

  • Saray's Feb 13, 23:48 comment on To an owl
    Dear Ella I am impressed by your post “To an Owl” Your connections to Greek mythology were fantastic, and they helped you convey the owl’s dilemma perfectly. Great way of explaining what the owl is experiencing. One sentence that you wrote that stands out for me is “ancient bones,” “long dark,” and “falling.” The death of the owl was represented in those words as less straightforward but more powerful. Thanks for your writing I look forward to reading more ! Saray

    Dear Vivianne: I am impressed with your post, “What is better Gas or Electic Powered Cars?” because you explain about both of the vehicles and which one was better. Especially about electric cars because there much better than gas cars. One sentence that stands out to me is, “Though many find a problem that these cars are expensive compared to gas-powered cars”. That is because it very true that they are very expensive than gas cars. Thanks for your writing. I am looking forward to seeing what you write next because I like what you think about electric cars and gas cars. I would like you to continue writing things that involve comparison. Christian
  • Valentin's Feb 13, 17:30 comment on Tokyo Fire
    Dear Jason, I absolutely loved your story. I liked how you brought up Mitsu Hamada as this hometown hero, but then you gave us a huge U-turn by saying how he slaughtered your family. That got me hooked it was so well written I really like how went in-depth with your story and tried to make us feel as immersed as possible. I really felt immersed. Your storytelling is amazing and I like how you really went to the fullest to make us feel for the protagonist and how you made your characters so complex. I like that Kevin moved to Tokyo from New York. Finally, your story progressed through a lot in a short period of time, but it didn’t feel rushed, and overall was a great read.
  • Laniyah's Feb 12, 22:20 comment on Willow Grove
    This is sooo good Jahnya. I’m very proud of how your story came. In the Beginning of the story it gives off a very Mystery vibe an then the ending it’s emotional. This seems like an actual Book. I love it!
  • Laniyah's Feb 12, 22:12 comment on The game

  • Rene's Feb 12, 22:12 comment on We Pray
    Dear Dawning, I am fascinated by your Poetic Writing “We Pay because it explains the happiness of one’s day, to feel love and prayed. With no intentions of darkness. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is, “As we come together as missing puzzle pieces”. I think this is a strong sentence because it pieces life to believing another day will be my accomplished day. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because its cool knowing what comes next. Somebody like you needs our feedback
  • Lesly's Feb 12, 20:57 comment on Aren’t We All The Same
    Dear Jaden, I am touched by your poem, “Aren’t We All The Same,” because many people around the world be able to relate to this. Racism has always been a major situation in the world. Equality and love should be shared by one another even if they are a different skin color from you. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “How long will it take for you to look at me no different then you look at yourself?” I think this important to acknowledge because racism has been going on for many years. We should all be united and together because we are all humans. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because your writing is very inspiring. I agree with you on what you said. Lesly

  • Ashley P's Feb 12, 03:00 comment on MY WONDERFUL TIO/UNCLE
    Dear Cristin, I am truly saddened by your post, My Wonderful Tio/ Uncle because I understand that experiencing a loss can completely shift the trajectory of one’s life. I too have lost loved ones so reading your post really hit home. I admire that you are able to put that grieve and hurt into a beautifully written post for hundreds to see. Your tio would be proud of you, truly. One sentence you wrote that stood out was, ¨No matter what, even if he was in a wheelchair, he still loved what he was doing¨. Whenever someone passes away, their positivity and light are something that will stick with us forever. I can’t erase your pain but I do pray that you find peace and contentment. Allow yourself to go through the grieving process and take the time you need to heal. Your tio will continue to watch you develop into an amazing person. I look forward to your future posts! Ashley
  • Ruendi's Feb 11, 17:26 comment on Have We Become Too Reliant on Electronics?
    Dear Shawn,  I am impressed with your post, “Have We Become Too Reliant on Electronics?” because electronics are something that really destroys our social life since it is something that we get attached too much to. I agree with you because there are many people out there who use electronics for purposes other than those who just use it to use it because they are addicted to it.  One sentence that you wrote that stood out to me was, “This could honestly go either way, there are so many good things and an almost equal number of bad things that can be brought about by electronics.” I agree with you that there are pros and cons about electronics and that electronics tend to be used for important things but they also tend to be used as a want or desire.  Thank you for your writing. I look forward to what your opinions are in other aspects of our everyday lives. I would also like to know if you are someone who uses their electronics for a long period of time.
  • arlette's Feb 11, 17:24 comment on GET TO KNOW ME
    Dear cristin :  I am interested in  “ GET TO KNOW ME,” because I found it so interesting how you were able to open up with us and I loved how you are giving a lot of details talking about your past and your family.  In one sentence you wrote, “ So I am very lucky to have them in my life even if we have our ups and downs.” I think this is awesome because I could relate to this in the way that my mother is always there for me. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because people need to hire more of your stories
  • Fatima Cisneros Rosas's Feb 10, 22:30 comment on little me to old me
    Dear Jefferson, I am impressed by your post, “little me to old me”. Because it is amazing how you faced and overcame the difficult challenge of getting out of your bubble and social interacting with other kids your age. Many children face this challenge every day and think that they won’t have friends but once they speak and create relationships sooner or later the more and more friends they will have. You liked sports and wanted to play with others but were afraid of being judged and not liked.  I’m glad you were able to get out of your bubby and make friends that will last a lifetime so you can create amazing memories. Especially when playing a sport creates loads of fun and memorable moments. One sentence that stood out to me was “ Why don’t I try to make new friends I should break out of this bubble.” This stood out to me because I once was in your shoes and feared communicating with others as a child but as time went by and we grew up I created bonds with my peers and become friends. Sometimes getting out of our comfort zone creates a great difference in our lives.  Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I liked how you overcame a challenge and made a significant change in your life. I would like you to continue writing because I know many people/children can relate to your experience.  -Fatima 
  • Luis's Feb 10, 22:07 comment on Aren’t We All The Same
    Dear Jaden, I am impressed by your post/poen, “Aren’t We All The Same”, because it is something that a lot of people in this country/world can relate to. It is everywhere where we see a lot of racism, from the internet, to the real outside world. I think this is an important topic that should always be spread with the intention of making our society a better place. A sentence that stood out to me from your poem is where it says, “How long will it take  for you to look at me no different then you look at yourself? This sentence stood out to me because it is a important to know how others are treated just because they don’t look a certain way. At the end of the day I believe, that all of us bleed out the same, therefore we have the same value. Thank you for writing this poem, it is very inspirational and very informal to many of us who have read it. You should continue to keep spreading this situation because it is such an important topic in which should always be spread until its end. Again, thank you for writing this and I am looking to see more of your inspirational poems/posts. Luis Serna
  • Ivan Zavala Harnandez's Feb 10, 22:07 comment on Unhealthy food
    Dear Monica, I am impressed by your post “Unhealthy Foods” because you explained how and why junk food is not good for our bodies. I like that you mention these unhealthy foods are packaged because it grabs our attention. I could understand how why these have gone up because all these foods contain salt and sugar which is bad for the body. One sentence that stood out to me was; “The way food is packaged has a big influence on what customers buy”. I think this is interesting because it does have a big impact in the industry we see a new product that looks good and so we try it. I think we can’t really do anything other than just try our best to stay away from these things and eat healthily. Thank you for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I like how you explain everything it was so fluent and then you elaborate on how it’s a problem
  • Aaliyah's Feb 10, 22:01 comment on Is Technology Harmful or Beneficial?
    Dear Isaiah, I am intrigued by your post, “Is Technology harmful or beneficial?”, because It’s very informative of how far we have accomplished with technology. It’s crazy to think about how much can be done in a matter of seconds with such ease. One sentence you wrote that stands out to me is “In a number of fields, technology is substituting for labor, and this has dramatic consequences for middle-class jobs and incomes”. I think this is the main problem that can come with technology, many people no longer have jobs because they are replaced. Thank you for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I find this topic very intriguing of the consequences yet benefits of some things. Aaliyah
  • Destiny's Feb 10, 21:59 comment on Suffering from Food Insecurity
    Dear Fatima, I am surprised by your post, Suffering from food insecurity, because I think that this issue needs to be explained more. It is a major issue in the world that can be resolved in many ways if individuals talk about it more. One sentence that you wrote that stood out to me is, No one should ever face food hunger. I strongly agree with this because no one should ever face food hunger. It can be a difficult situation to be in general. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I would like to see any changes that occur when light is brought to this topic. I also want to see if you can help make more changes on issues around the world.
  • Angel G's Feb 10, 21:58 comment on Ufo Sightings
    Dear: sayra I am impressed by your post “UFO Sightings” because you talk about how there are many reports claiming that people have seen a aircrafts as know as UFOs. In your post it says that there was a private pilot who reported seeing nine UFOs traveling faster than speed of light near Mount Rainier in Washington state.  One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is “In 1947 when a private pilot reported seeing nine circular objects traveling at supersonic speeds near mount Rainier in washington state”. I think this is still unknown because there are so many reports that people have seen there was a UFO, and there was only the private pilot reported and know one else knows. It’s still unknown for me how there are UFO sightings around the world and half of it is fake.  Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you will write about next, because you show evidence how there might be UFO sightings around the world but it is still unknown if there are UFOs around the world.  Angel 
  • Joseph's Feb 10, 21:58 comment on A new way to travel
    Dear Monica, I am intrigued by your post “A new way to travel,” because i was wondering how others felt during the pandemic that had planned vacations that had to be cancelled. I think it’s a neat idea so that people had somewhat of an experience that helped during the lockdown. One sentence that you wrote that stands out to me is “This works similarly to a real flight, when the plane has arrived customers get virtual reality headsets that let them look around their destination”. This is amazing because they are getting at least some type of experience. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because it is a neat story about what people resorted to during the pandemic. It helps people understand the level of lockdown that the U.S. was in.

    Dear, Monica: I am interested and surprised by your post about the flu, “Permanent Cure for The Flu” because I think it is interesting how there might be a cure for the flu. I also think that it is amazing how the cell of the flue can be cut out. Lastly, the flu does affect many people and is a common disease. One sentence you wrote that stands out to me is, “The CRISPR can target the part of the RNA that’s carrying the virus, and just “cut” it out. “I think this is interesting because I didn’t know this was possible. I also think it is amazing how this could be discovered. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I find your writing very interesting. Erika.

    Dear, Cristin I am understanding by your post, “My Strong and Weak Points” because you show both sides the weak moments and strong. You mention how you want to become better and looking for ways to overcome your moments. One sentence that you wrote that stood out to me was, “How can I improve my empathy? Challenge myself, undertake challenging experiences which push me outside your comfort zone.” I think is important because we should stop thinking about how bad things are and find a way to overcome it. Thank you for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you will be writing next because your post really stood out to me. Ashley
  • Adalberto's Feb 10, 20:41 comment on Discovery of Prehistoric Flowers
    Dear Adrian I am impressed by your post, “Discovery of Prehistory Flowers” because it is amazing that amber can preserve something for so long. Amber is a unique material and is able to encase nearly anything in it. One sentence you wrote that stood out to me is “These flowers were preserved in amber, the same thing that was used in the movie Jurassic Park.” I think it is cool that you compared it to Jurassic Park. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because learning about animals and plants is always interesting. Especially if it is from the prehistoric age.
  • Ashley P's Feb 10, 20:39 comment on Use Your Breath
    Dear Lauren, I was completely drawn into your poem, ¨Use Your Breath¨. The repetition of ¨remember to breathe¨ puts an emphasis on the overall purpose of your poem. Your poem was beautifully written. One phrase that stands out to me is, ¨as the waves carry you, remember to breathe¨. because sometimes in life, we get too caught up in whatever we may be doing and it could become overwhelming. We don’t remember to sit back and allow ourselves to go through the emotions. Thank you for writing!! I look forward to seeing what your write next because you´re writing is truly impactful. Good work. Ashley
  • Fernando A's Feb 10, 20:38 comment on Covid test kit
    I am impressed by your post, ” Covid test kit” because how that covid test is free to students that go to school so that they could get tested if they feel sick. One sentence that you wrote that stands out to me is “Some examples of this situation are that ” these rapid tests are important and might prove very effective in the coming future, is because they are a lot more inexpensive the traditional test and they are 90% accurate”. I found this interesting because I thought the paid test was not accurate. Thank you for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I found this interesting. Fernando
  • Monica's Feb 10, 20:37 comment on Am I Somebody?
    Dear Yniya, I am very impressed by your post, ” Am I somebody,” because is a poem that touches your heart. A poem that talks about how you feel inside, and the scars you have outside. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: ” living in an empty capsule fighting for my inner peace but my darkness loves the company and my brighter side gives in Am I Somebody? I think this is a very touchline because explains the dark love that you have inside but at the same time the brighter side that gives you the energy to keep going. The way that they describe an empty capsule inside you, that makes you keep going. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I like how you describe a way of saying “Am I somebody.” I would like you to keep writing about poems. -Monica
