Bullying is harmful because it causes people to have a negative self image, avoid school and they could hurt others. This can be solved by smarter school anti-bullying rules. In extreme cases of bullying children don’t always tell adults about the bullying that is happening, and they can’t cope with the stress.

Next, Bullying has a few endings. A teacher or trusted adult can help by becoming involved,contemplating suicide, and sometimes they actually do commit suicide, Like Alex Libby. For example, in the article it says,” Alex Libby’s life has changed science he featured in the hit anti-bullying documentary Bully.”  Alex was, “ Strangled, attacked, called names and, harassed!” Those are only some of the reasons that Alex Libby tried to commit suicide. This is important because suicide can make families sad about their loss, it also affects their friends and others around them. -(YouTube 2012)

Moving on,  bullies threatened to break Alex’s bones and sexually assault him. Making him feel like he didn’t want to go to school. In the article it states, “that Alex is happy with his new school because he moved -(Rand 2012) The bullies is Iowa called Alex fish face. They threatened to break his bones, sexually assault him and kill him! -(Rand 2012) This is important because it could hurt Alex both physically and mentally. Physically because it could just hurt him in general. But mentally is that he just keeps thinking and thinking about it and it just totally messes up his life.

Next, Casey hines was brave because, he dealt with bullying all of his life. The bullies called him fatty and told him to lose some weight. But one day he stood up for himself when he was repeatedly attacked by a bully. His father was horrified about the fight between Casey and his bully. -(YouTube) This is important because the father was worried that Casey could have been hurt or seriously injured the other student.

Bullying is harmful because it causes people to have a negative self image, avoid school and they could hurt others. This can be solved by smarter school anti-bullying rules. In extreme cases of bullying children don’t always tell adults about the bullying that is happening, and they can’t cope with the stress. Bullying is harmful because it can cause people to be non social and kind of in their own shell which leads to them not telling anyone. Bullying has a multiple endings. Bullying can hurt someone physically and mentally. Every bullying victim should speak out. People should feel the topic of bullying is not cool. And the people who think bullying is fake are usually the bullies.

Child labor/ child slavery

                           Child labor and child slavery

Do you think that child labor and child slavery is good or bad because I think it’s bad for my reasons in my next sentence.Child labor and child slavery is not proper because it’s affecting people, because it’s bad, and most of all because we should free slaves not make them work. How do you feel about child labor and child slavery do you feel good or sad.

    First,  child labor is affecting people by making them lazy if they have the slaves, or making people get worried about their own children and what it would be like if their own children were slaves. Iqbal Masih said, “ children should have pens in their hands not tools” . This is important because Iqbal gave his life to his beliefs. Iqbal had died at the age of “12” but got shot at the age of “10”. Iqbal was also saying that because at “4” years old his parents sold him to be a slave because they had a debt to pay. In conclusion, child labor is affecting people for those reasons.

   Next, child slavery is bad because kids should be learning how to read, write, solve math equations, and science. No matter what people still try and stop unequal rights and make them equal rights. “ we were all given the same rights just by being born on this planet”, said Rachel. The free the beauty 5k run in California two girls Rachel and Sage raised $6,000 to free girls in Africa who mine the very sparkles in girls makeup. In conclusion, child slavery is bad because kids should be learning not getting dirty and sweaty

    Then, people should be freeing child slaves not making them do work because it just makes you get Lazy. “ children are our future and by not letting them learn educational work they will have a bad impact in the future. So without the education they need they will lead the world with a devastating effect.” , quoted Iqbal Masih. My evidence is true because if children don’t have an education then how will the world have a good law,or government. Education is so important that kids might not understand but it will help the world a whole lot more than without it. In conclusion, people should free child slaves not make them work because how will the world be in the future when children today are adults in the future how will the government be then consider my work as a reason you should free child slaves and stop child labor.

In conclusion, how do you feel about child labor and child slavery now that you just read my reasons why they are both bad. Child labor and child slavery isn’t proper because it’s affecting people, because it truly is bad, and most of all because we should help free child slaves and not make them work. Children are the future don’t make a bad choice, do the right thing.

Child Labor/Slavery

Child Labor/Slavery
By: Hayley Gonneville

       Did you know that child labor harms many children around the globe? For example, Iqbal Masih who was killed for standing against child slavery. Imagine sewing carpets all your life, with no food nor water. Children need to be able to go to school like everyone else. Child labor/Slavery is unneeded because they don’t let children have breaks while sewing, the children don’t get food or water, most of all because the children get beaten for making a mistake.

       Children in child labor don’t get any breaks while sewing carpets for stores or other community services. All they do is sew all day, so imagine how unhealthy they must be because they never get to exercise or go outside. The article states, “The majority of children in child labor perform unpaid family work”. (10 child labor facts, Matt Berg). Children are sewing or working everyday nonstop and don’t get paid no matter what they do. Imagine working at a job that you don’t get paid at. The video quotes, “When in child labor, they were always working and got no breaks”. (Youtube:Freedom Hero/Iqbal Masih). This states that life in America is very different than life in child slavery. Living your life in child labor is very difficult.

         Unlike you who gets food everyday, children in child slavery don’t get any food or water so that they can keep their fingers small, so they are able to sew. If you get hungry an hour after you eat, then imagine how the children feel not being able to eat at all. The film states, “Children in Pakistan, in child labor, do not get food or water to keep their fingers small”. (Youtube:Freedom Hero/Iqbal Masih). A lot of children can die from child labor, because their bodies are not healthily treated. Kids should not be dieing this young and deserve to be healthy. The text states, “According to the ILO, 168 million children worldwide are engaged in child labor as of 2013”. (10 child labor facts, Matt Berg). This means that 168 million children are unhealthy because they starve all the time and are never hydrated. These children deserve to be healthy and live a good life.

          Instead of being sent to the corner when making a mistake, in child labor you were beaten or put into a torture chamber. They get beaten for even making a tiny mistake. The video states, “If children made a mistake, while making carpets, they were beaten or put into a torture chamber”. (Youtube:Freedom Hero/Iqbal Masih). They are basically teaching the kids that it is not okay to make any mistakes in life. That everything should be perfect the first time you try to do or make something. The article states, “Carpet dealers have lost more sales because of the killing of Iqbal Masih”. (Kathy Gannon, May 31, 1995). Since shoppers know that kids are getting harmed from child labor, such as Iqbal, they are not buying the carpets anymore. Children should not have to do jobs that an adult should be doing, for example sewing carpets.

         Child labor/slavery is a cruel and horrible way to treat children. Child slavery gives kids less of an advantage to have a good life. All of slavery involved with children should be stopped and kids should be free to get an education. They should go to school. Be taught by teachers and learn and be able to make mistakes without being beaten. Child labor/slavery is a system that should be banned.

Animal Abuse

Animal Abuse

There are a lot of people that own pets but aren't nice to them and probably shouldn't own them. There are three different types,the first is animal abandonment, the second is animal shelters and the final one is abuse. All three of these types of abuse lead to lots of animals either getting severely injured or killed.

    First is animal abandonment and it becoming more common and harder to figure out who did it, “I wanted my generation to not see their pets as disposable”. -Wegner. This is important because some people think of there animals as only toys or things that don't matter, but they do. A animal can be your best friend if you are nice to them and don't abandon them. There are people that are standing up for them and trying to  speak up about the abandonment issues. Every animal deserves a good home with people that will be kind to them not someone who will get rid of them the first chance they get.

     Next is the animal shelters. Animal shelters are starting to grow more common for not treating their animals properly and some of the animals end up dieing, “I always thought it was hypocritical for animal shelters to say that they save animals lives, only to kill them”.-Westland This is important because some of the shelters don't take care of the dogs as well so they might become more vicious to other people cause they think the people will hurt them so they become harder to control.

    Finally is animal abuse. Animal abuse is sadly becoming even more popular than abandonment. People are getting mad at there animals and taking it out on the animals instead of doing something else like putting them up for adoption so they might be able to find a new or better home, “Animal welfare is a great passion of mine and many others as well. This is one way I can be there voice”. -Westland.   This is important because Westland has probably seen this abuse happen and chose to speak up about it instead of letting it happen. He is speaking up for the animals and trying to help them find better families and let them know what is going on so they might be able to help fight against animal abuse.

  In conclusion it is really important that people don't abandon their animals, the shelters don't hurt them, and everyone doesn't abuse them.  If we keep doing this though and don't stop the animals will run away and go off on their own leaving you alone.

abandoned Animals/pets
                                             (By kylie.McC)
    Abandoned animals/pets is horrible thing that pet are dieing from. The shelters need money  and community help,next is good things that happen in or out of shelters the last one is there is animal/pets abuse going on around the word.
        Shelter and how they need help money wise and not enough space for them. Shelters need more help from the community. An example is, “everyone thinks they can do it by themselves but they can't.” Shelters Get more them 20 pets a day and most of them are hurt from the road and get put down because there's not enough space at the shelter for the animals the next problem is
        The good things that happen at or to shelters and this is. An example is, “They had the biggest adoshon ever and that was 65 in two days.” “They Have a week that is 6-12 is nashonal apashashon week.” A lot of animal/pets have nowhere to go because the shelters are full and they die in the road alone.
         Now there is animal abuse going on all around the world. An example is,” Each country has there own animal crisis.” All kinds of pets/animal are getting ran over by cars in India,people are not takeing care of their animals/pets.
      Shelters need your help for money and and to get rid of the animals/pets so they can have space for more. This is important because they are dieing by themselves and the shelters can not do this on there own they need help. Shelters need money and the comity help,next are the good things that happened in or out of the shelters, animal abuse is going on all around the world.

Pets that dont have homes

             Animal abandonment

Shelter can help animals but they sometimes need help with the animals they can't do everything themselves. Also teen activist try to help with the cause of animal abandonment.

 Teen activist try to make the world a better place they try to make a difference. The article says, “In 2009 lou wegner founded kids against cruelty. A facebook page created as a place for kids to come together to fight for the rights of animals” ( examiner). This quote is important because lou wegner is trying to make other people involved more. Also he wants more people to care about this topic. Therefor he makes a difference.

       Animal shelters need help taking care of animals that stay there that other people don't care about. “ if you were to ask anyone that works at the shelter whose responsibility it is to care for the animals at the shelter they'd insist that it is a community as a whole.”(huffington post).           This quote means the community has some of the responsibility to take care of the animals in the shelter. They need help finding homes for animals.

    Animal shelters can be very helpful in the quest of finding homes for the poor dogs. In this article “A shelter in washington dc had a fundraiser to for dogs to find homes. In three days of the fundraiser they got 65 dogs to new homes”(huffington post. This is important because now those dogs that have homes and now a good life could still be living in a cage and never have a home.

In conclusion animal abandonment is bad. People in the community need to help shelters if they can. Some people care about this issue such as teen activist they try to make a difference in the world

Pet abandonment crisis

          Teen activist are noticing an increasing numbers of abandoned pets, as a result these activists made groups and clubs to help their community and shelters fight against animal abandoning and animal overpopulation. The problems are that animals are being abandoned. The second problem is thaanimals are dieng inside their shelters. How we the community can help is by creating groups and clubs to help the shelters.
          The first problem is that animal abandonment is increasing, in result the animal shelters are getting full of pets and are forced to put some down.  In reaction to this, a member of Teen Ink thinks about some shelters, “particular shelters may have excuses, such as ‘we don’t have enough room, we don’t have enough money to keep them alive, or they aren’t young or ‘cute’ enough and nobody will want to adopt them’.” Says a member of Teen Ink. This shows that some animal shelters will make excuses so they can be greedy. This shelters are the worst kind, they just want money so they can buy things they want. Those type of people are wrong, greedy and selfish. All living things should be cared for equally, for their own good. If something is left behind, it will die slowly until it is no more, when that happens then people will listen to what they had to say. And will do whatever it takes to make sure it doesn't happen again.
           The second problem is that hundreds of pets are dying inside of shelters because of disease or severe injury. as a result of this said, “Wegner wanted to reach out to other teens let them know that millions of cats and dogs are dying inside of our nations shelters.” This shows that Wenger wants to branch out to other teens for the better future of the animals and pets we love and care for, and wants to help the problem of animal abandonment can kill animals that we loved and cared for.
          Lastly, how we can help this problem resolve is to help find homes for animals animals by creating a club or group to help the animal shelters find homes for the animals.The YEA camp that a young girl went to told the world what she said, “Bianca says that it’s important for their club to be involved with their local animal shelter because they are one of the only groups helping.” Says YEA. This shows that Bianca wants to show that she cares for animals and wants to encourage schools and other teens to create groups or clubs to help fight animal abandonmentship
          In conclusion, this solution helps slow the the increase of animals being homeless and dying do to disease or severe injury because of abandonment of pets, this causes death to animals and the animals shelters getting too full so even more animals have to die. The problems aregetting out off hand and we are the only ones who can help. We can help this by taking in animals and donate to the
Shelters. This is only some of the ways to help this problem.



     Bullying can come in multiple different forms. The first form is cyber bullying which can be by a text, a comment, or a picture or video. A second form is Face to Face bullying this form can range from physical bullying to verbal bullying. In extreme cases of any type of bullying there can be child suicide.

     Cyber Bullying is a very important cause that needs to stop
before more people are hurt. A fact about cyberbullying is that,‘42% of children have been bullied online - 1 in 4 have had it happen more than once.’{adams} this is important because children may not get a good education because they would be thinking about themselves being bullied more than their school work.
   Face to Face bullying can come in a couple of different ways that range from physical bullying, verbal bullying, and both. One fact about Face to Face bullying that you may not know is that,‘60% of middle school students say that they have been bullied.’ Another fact is ,‘Only 25% of bullied students said  that teachers intervened a bullying incidents.’{bluekit} This shows that if teachers were more obserdant of the change in their children and how they act then their might be less bullying in schools
Not only child suicide is bad but any no matter what age they are. One way that people are trying to stop suicides is,‘Since
 the suicide of 15 year-old Phoebe Prince of South Hadley, Massachusetts,the bay state has become ground zero for the debate over bullying.’{Emily Richmond}this is important because it is such a  big thing that it changed houl states ideas about bullying and cyberbullying.
Now know some information about bullying you can help fight against bullying you can do one of these. Stand up against bullies and not be a bystander. Reported cyberbullying when you see it happening or when you know that it is happening. And if you help with an anti-suicide program by giving support to children or going to schools  or try to start one of your own.



Bullying is bad

     Hello, I’m going to tell you about bullying and why it’s bad. I’m going to tell you about what happens to people who are bullied, how to stop bullying, and cyberbullying. And after this you help people who have been bullied before. So students can focus on their education and not worrying about bullies. I hope you enjoy.

   First, when someone is bullied they could miss their classes, they don’t go to school because they don’t want to be bullied. And is some evidence about extreme cases of bullying dailymail.cov. Said “2,000 U.S. schoolchildren have committed suicide as a direct result of bullying.”(published may, 21 2012). Many students have killed themselves because they were bullied. Just imagine what their parents would feel when they find out that their child killed themselves.

   Secondly, how can people stop bullying. Stopping bullying is important if bullying stops people wouldn’t have to be worried about someone torturing them. Yet people haven't found a way to stop bullying schools have tried to stop bullying Stella Insomniac said “three things schools can do to reduce bullying among students are to get uniforms, better the punishments, and showing better guidelines of what bullying is opposed to what people believe what bullying is.”(unknown publish date) This shows what schools can do to stop bullying.

     Lastly, one of the most common types of bullying is cyberbullying. Cyberbullying is a person who posts mean pictures or mean comment. A study was taken to see what type of person had experienced cyberbullying and girls were the most common gender to have experienced it. And cyberbullying is different from other types of bullying scholastic said “One of the capacities of cyberbullying is that it goes from zero to 60 rapidly—it can go viral very quickly and can live permanently online.” So cyberbullying isn’t private like other types of bullying, it can be seen by everyone and it can ruin your life.

     In conclusion bullying is a terrible because of the effects, but it can be stopped, yet cyberbullying could make it even harder to stop. So please try to help stop bullying. It doesn't have to be a lot just ask a school principal to have school uniforms. And I hope you enjoy.
                                                            Education Crisis

    Girls all around the globe are not getting the education they need.These folks are forced to stay home by law and do work around their house.These people are left hopeless because they do not have the education they need to do the jobs they want to do.These jobs include,being a lawyer,a cashier,a mechanic,and more. This issue needs to be addressed.

     For example,if people don’t get education their life will be pretty dull.They will not become an author if they can’t read or write.They also won’t get the opportunity to stand and defend in what they believe in very well.A group of people called the Taliban,are trying to end education.They believe that if a girl gets education they will overpower the group.Many schools are getting blown up by the group while their mission to end education continues.

       To end this tragedy,activists are taking a stand.One of the activists,Malala Yousafzai,has a rather unique story.She started protesting in 2013,when she noticed that education was becoming rather hard to find.In October of 2013,she had a terrifying experience.She was on the bus with her friends on her way home from school when the bus came to a stop.To men came aboard.One was armed.They asked,”Who is Malala?”Her friends looked at her.Without a second to spare,they shot Malala and her friends.

     After all this tragedy,Malala was not mad.She said,”I think they were looking for peace.”This quote means that she didn’t think the Taliban wanted them to die but suffer.Most people would be mad but she was not mad.She is a fearless girl with big dreams.She would do anything to get the rights for education.She didn’t start out publicly speaking.When she first started out she talked to people from the British Broadcast Center in England.She told them about all the things that happened in Pakistan.

      The world would be a place of fear without education.There would be no houses because people would not know how to build.There would be no very brilliant inventions made.The world would have no shelter or good food or even schools.Without education everyone wouldn’t have a good chance of surviving.

      In conclusion,the world needs education to be successful.There would be many tragedies in the world without it.Jobs would not be done,everyone would starve,and nothing would be safe.Education is something everyone needs to do important things in life.No one would have very good jobs at all.In the end education is much needed.

Animal Abandonment and Overpopulation

                            Animal Abandonment and Overpopulation

     Animals die everyday because of animal abandonment and overpopulation. There are many ways why animal abandonment and overpopulation is not good. For example, overpopulation, because of not spaying and neutering, abandonment, because of overpopulation. There are also many ways to stop it. Also for example, Don’t abandon animals, and always spay and neuter pets (unless certified breeder).
     This is why animal abandonment and overpopulation is bad. Animals die because they are being abandoned and overpopulating. They are overpopulating because they aren't getting spay and neutered. AHA says, “Animals die because there are more of them than responsible homes”, -AHA (American Humane Association). This proves that animals die because of abandonment and that they are overpopulating. So, animal abandonment makes overpopulation worse, and overpopulation is making it harder for animals to get homes. This problem is getting worse and worse.
      These are some solutions for animal overpopulation and abandonment. Spay and neuter  pets and never abandon animals. Also, a big help would be to help find animals homes. So in AHA’s words, “Always spay and neuter pets, always make a lifetime commitment to to your pets, and educate others about pet overpopulation and the importance of spaying and neutering”, -AHA. This is important because it shows that there are solutions to help stop animal abandonment and overpopulation.
      A few more reasons why you shouldn't abandon animals is because those animals may die without a home and they may start to reproduce. AHA explains, “Studies suggests that 7-20 percent of pets are no longer in the same home, six months after acquisition. These animals often die or end up at shelters, contributing to the pet overpopulation issue”, -AHA. This shows that animals do die because of abandonment and overpopulation and why you shouldn't abandon animals, because it only makes this problem worse.
     In conclusion, abandonment and overpopulation is a problem, but there are solutions, and you never abandon animals.That is the problems and solutions of animal abandonment and overpopulation, and why you shouldn't abandon animals. So, animal abandonment and overpopulation is very bad and why everyone should try to help stop this problem.

     Bullying is harmful because of how often they start which can be at any moment by having their own anger build up inside them, although we may know the people we do not know their story of how they are at home. However those being bullied can stop the cycle by having others help them handle their bully responsibly, staying home so others are not at risk,and using their voice to advocate against bullying.
     One reason bullying is harmful is because of how often they start. One example is “ All targets of bullying  get angry. This is “normal”, for anger builds up inside a person for months, sometimes years.” ( This is important because it shows that bullying starts by anger building up inside the bully by their bully over a period of time, and finally they snap and take out their anger on innocent people.
     Another reason bullying is harmful but can have a positive effect by how others help kids handle their bullying. One example is “ Officer Cavedon shows a kid how to handle his bully responsibly.” (are you being bullied). This means Officer Cavedon wanted to help make a difference in his community and help others.
     The last reason bullying is harmful what happens do to kids being bullied. One example is “ Over 160,000 kids stay home due to bullying.” (Stand up). This means that many kids stay home every day so they do not get tormented and harassed.
     In conclusion bullying is harmful but when people stand up to it they can have a positive effect. By the kid, or kids having others help them handle their bullying. Also by the kid(s). Staying home it helps them not become a bully themselves. By kids being bullied, being helped to handle it, and them staying home together we can lower the bullying in the world by helping others cope with the bullying they experienced.
