I believe in citizens’ right to freedom of speech and to protest peacefully. While I may not agree with some of the beliefs brought up by the protesters, it makes me a proud American that they are taking real action and sharing their thoughts with the public. Last year, Colin Kaepernick, San Francisco 4...

It’s eighth grade. Moving from Severna Park, Maryland to Middletown was a big change. It was still a new concept going to a new school with new people. I was greeted with friendly smiles saying, "Welcome to Middletown." I thought to myself, "Maybe change won’t be so bad after all." I gradually started to tr...

I came home one day last week, ready to watch my dose of the evening news and was suddenly appalled at what I saw reporters, well, reporting. A 14-year-old girl at Rockville High School was allegedly raped by two much older illegal immigrants. The victim was brutally assaulted in a boys bathroom, at her own hig...

Blockbuster movies often tell a story about a force that humans created which now cannot be stopped. Much of the time it is a robot taking over the world and it is up to humans to come to the rescue. But there’s a more real threat than the science fiction in movies. Humans have already created an unstopp...

My body, my mind, my power; my right to choose; my right to be; my right to equality and a president who believes in it. On Saturday, January 21, I fought for this, we joined together and fought for this. It’s safe to say no one expected the turnout that occurred at the Women's March on Washington,...

The Oscar broadcast on Feb. 26 was great. Until it wasn’t. I started out the night with the red carpet show saying, “This is the most well produced live event I have seen in awhile.” That attitude continued far throughout the show, until it didn't. I don't even think I need to explain, but for...
