I do believe that we need border security, and I do believe a wall may be helpful to prevent illegal activity there. The criminals who endanger the lives of many with drugs and human trafficking should be held accountable for their deeds. A good way to keep security tight is to make sure you have as...

I really want to like Bernie Sanders.I enjoy his fiery speeches promoting a better future for us millennials, his reputation for being stubborn and sticking to his guns; his intense dislike for the establishment.

Virginity has always been a talking point. Since the first day of high school, it seems sex and losing your "v-card" were the only things on anyone's mind.

On a base level, advertisements (ads) are meant to connect potential buyers with products. On a deeper level, ads are meant to cause recognition. This commercial was a hit in that regard. Whether you loved the commercial, hated it, or didn't care you've been reminded about Gillette. Let me be frank, I l...

Imagine a huge casino for children, a place with no supervision, specifically designed for them to gamble away their parent's money. They go in and soon get addicted to the thrill. The desire to "win big" leads them to spend more and more, without understanding what they are doing to themselves. This...

Here, in the United States, we have a protected right to say essentially whatever we want within reason. But should we really speak without any regard?In recent years, especially during and after the 2016 election, we have been in this kind of tug-of-war with what language is okay to use.

As young people we are the future of this country. What we do will alter the way of the world. However, we will not be effective in our actions if we are not educated on how things in our government work. We must research and then research again.

Sucking a neck isn’t just for the vampires in "Twilight." Look in my closet and you will see several long, dark blue turtlenecks. These are mainly from my younger days when I didn’t want my parents or classmates to see the mark my high school boyfriend left on my neck. As I’ve gotten older,...
