Make America UNITED, Again

If you want to make a difference, start with you.

Make America UNITED, Again
Euclid Public Library

We are the United States of America, right? If we are supposed to be UNITED, then why are we so divided? It's always Hispanic versus American, black versus white, male versus female, and soon enough, it is going to be cat versus dog. Why are we always so against each other, rather than with each other? Don't you think the world would run a lot smoother if we actually were untied? Right now, we are looking like the "Separated States of America."

Why do we fight against each other, rather than with each other? We feel the need to belittle people based on their thoughts, skin, culture, etc. White lives are not better than black lives. Black lives are not better than white lives. Men are not better than women. Women are not better than men. Americans are not better than Hispanics. Hispanics are not better than Americans. No one is better than the other. I don't care what color you are, how wealthy you are, what you look like, or what you like. Respect each other and fight with each other, not against each other.

If you want things to get better, start with yourself. Be less judgmental of others. Understand that people have different opinions than you do, and accept that! I am a big dog person, but I understand that some of my friends are big cat people. I only used that scenario because I do not want to place my opinions and views on you. I am respectful of my friends and family and all of their opinions. Sure, I do not agree with many of them, but I respect that they believe something different than I do.

If you want to become the UNITED States of America, again, make yourself united with those around you. Respect others. Respect those of higher authority and respect those of lesser authority.

God Bless America.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

Allyson Foutty

We are all often faced with many life challenges throughout the time leading up to our 20s. Before this time, and throughout it, we often look back at the things we've learned and how they've influenced who we are as people today. Some of my biggest influences were some of the challenges I've faced, but they've taught me 20 important things by the start of my 20s.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
