How Many Of You Hate America?
The common view of things is often different from the reality. They can be twisted, beautiful images that shield us from the truth. Sometimes people should think of it not as a shield, but as a blindfold. Because a world superpower is taking steps... (more »)

Letter to George Bush This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.
Dear Mr. Bush, Much is being made of the inauguration of President Obama. But amidst all the celebration, I couldn’t help but think about how you must be feeling leaving office and transferring your position to another. You served as... (more »)

Still Not Colorblind This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.
I often heard about the presidential election on the news. You probably did too, if you expose yourself at all to the sickly sun of the American media. Journalists, reporters, and every other member of the information army practically wet... (more »)

Custom User Avatar
Two years ago, Obama meant nothing to me. His name did not ring any bells of hope or change or bring huge traffic to my hometown. However, just a year later, he became the Democratic nominee for president and his name rang the bells of history.... (more »)

Why America Should Help Israel
Custom User Avatar

Who Loves Sarah Palin?
By , Benson, NC
What enlightened teenagers out there love Sarah Palin? I know that I do! If I were of the age, I would run a Palin- Huckabee 2012 campaign. Once Obama's healthbill goes through, at first it will seem wonderful, but when people start seeing... (more »)

For some reason, ever since the attack on the Gaza flotilla, everyone has been so sympathetic to “those poor Muslims.” Those poor little human rights and peace activists. Yeah right. The flotilla headed for Gaza turned out to have not... (more »)

Stricter Gun Control This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.
Custom User Avatar
Did you know that all handguns are semi-automatic? This means that all that stands between you and death is the pull of a trigger. Limited access to handguns would decrease violence, as has been proven in the past by numerous laws. In addition,... (more »)

The world has achieved brilliance without wisdom, power without conscience. Our world is a world of nuclear giants and ethical infants. We know more about war than we know about peace and we know more about killing than we know about living. Are... (more »)

On a usual election day I usually wait anxiously, glued to the tv keeping updated on the election results. This election day was far different. I knew the sad fact that the new leader of our nation was Barrack Obama. While he was a politician... (more »)

Today's Media

I don't think that there's been a day where I've gone on You Tube and wasn't offended by something. I haven't turned on the TV to age-appropriate material in ages. I don't think I've ever listened through an entire song because they always talk... (more »)
