Pledge of Allegiance
Although well written, I found Halliday's article on the pledge of allegiance was comepletely innappropriate and way to condemning. I'm sorry you feel you can't say the pledge due to isolated incidents of the past, but the pledge is about more... (more »)

Emily R.’s article “The Skirt” spoke to me because it talked about feeling out of place. I have been in that position, standing in a dressing room wondering why I’m trying to change myself. We need to stay true to ourselves whether we wear... (more »)

Freedom
I agree with you one hundred percent Nadia M. In your article "Freedom", you talked about how we are all bombarded with fashion, technology, and the media, and how we are giving our freedom over to these superficial and meaningless things. I... (more »)

Dear Freshman
I absolutely agree with Samantha S.'s article, "Dear Freshman". I agree with what she is saying in the article because most high school students, mostly freshmen often procrastinate. She is basically telling students how to fail, but you can tell... (more »)

Dear Jack
I almost agree with Jack G.'s article "Dear Jack". I say almost because he is both right and wrong. Jack seems negative and pessimistic when he says that "The cold, hard truth is that most people don't get their dream job..." Yet, he states that... (more »)

I utterly agree with Jenny W.'s article "Greed, Apathy, Politics." It comes to mind that many companies do what Jenny mentions in her article. They worry about competition and economic growth within the buisness. Therefore they dont think about... (more »)

Super Hero Movie
Honestly,I truly disagree with the comments Evan F. made about Super Hero Movie. I disagree with the fact that you think it is "Laughs are few and far between", for it is your opinion. Even though the jokes may be old,numerous people find them... (more »)

A Time to Unite
I strongly agree with Melisa E.'s article, "A Time to Unite". In this article I read how race, religon, beliefs and gender really affect the people in this world. Reading how simple things like that affects how people live infuriates me. I believe... (more »)

Life as a Game
I absolutely agree with Drew Mason's "Life as a Game." I think if you want to be anything in life you have to give it your best. But you also have to be patient. Mr. Mason said in his article " people think its easy to win, but its not." I... (more »)
