To the Marine on the plane, I regret that my sister and I could not find it within ourselves to applaud your service, along with other military personnel on your flight from Jacksonville, NC to Atlanta, GA. What you had no way of knowing was that I was on that flight after testifying at a breaking and entering hearing against a member of the Marine Corps. Despite my interactions with Family Services and being assigned a Victim Advocate, despite all the evidence including written evidence, photographic evidence, and video evidence, despite the defendant’s dishonesty to local law enforcement, despite witnesses who saw him removing items from the home after damaging a window to gain access to the home he no longer resided in – the judge dismissed the case. This occurred after the...

Patriotism meant something so much different then it did when I was a little girl growing up in a non-millennial, non-tech obsessed, everything manual generation. Even though the word patriotism still means "devotion to and vigorous support for one's country" according to Webster's good old dictionary, there is a definite distinction of language evolution happening throughout the years. I know that people change, politics change, generations change, and philosophies change. However, being a patriot is a feeling or pride that has stood the test of time in America for over 200 years. That feeling of that same patriotism for this country is manifesting into a different emotions. There is a feeling sadness and desperation to get back to the old days when kids waved little mini...

To CBS, I have religiously followed Criminal Minds for fourteen seasons and I eagerly await season fifteen. You’ve also brought NCIS and Elementary into my life. To BBC, The Fall was thrilling and I watched every second. To Fox, thank you for Bones. I’ll admit that I will eat up any crime procedural and follow any show about psychopaths and criminals that you produce. As a psychology major at Cal Poly, however, I believe we must consider the consequences of dehumanizing and making monsters out of psychopaths, or those with antisocial personality disorder (ASPD). I recently completed a “Quest Project” for English; the goal being to essentially ask a question and answer it. I asked: can psychopaths be rehabilitated? And if so, how should it be done? Through my research I have found...

My American dream I am writing this writing from the viewpoint of me, in the land of the brave and the home of the free. They say it's the greatest in all of the world, where pride in your culture makes flags wave unfurled. Our people a mix from cultures abroad, from the high Andes mountains to the flatlands of sod. We're yellow and white and brown and dark blue, we have different religions and some have none too. We war with each other when our leaders crave power, we sell all our time and our lives by the hour. We overextend from our bank account monies, to buy fancy homes and fine things for our honeys. We're taxed on the taxes on top of a tax, these aren't just assumptions, not speculation but facts! The irony is that we came to this land to escape...

Hi Pewds, I have been thinking for some time of writing something serious that you can read, although with the strong content of memes and sarcasm that characterizes the channel, it is difficult to find a way to keep a message true to its content. So I will simply limit myself to writing this open letter, without really knowing if it will ever be read. First of all I have to clarify that this is not an attack, or bullying, a questioning maybe. But not from the point of view of a company that seeks to clickbait with your name or a media source that seeks to fill an agenda with what will feed their ecosystem. I want to do it from the point of view of someone who has followed your channel for about four or five years, who applauded and respected the moment you decided to turn the...

Dear popular crowd of Central High, Yea, I'm the new girl. Yes I see your sideways glances towards me. Little do you know that I dream of being like you. I wanna be popular. I dress like you, have a genuine personality, but you want nothing to do with me. Why? I know I'm new to your school and I have to build my way up, but can I at least have a chance? I'm not used to a big high school like yours and I don't know how to get around here. Who am I supposed to talk who am I supposed to avoid? I'm having a hard time here and all I ever wished for was to be popular. I don't see myself fitting in with anyone else. I am not like the cliques here and no one seems to want to accept me in. Is there anything I can do? I wanna be apart of something. I wanna go to parties and cheer at...

The firestorm surrounding remarks tweeted by the Creative Writing professor at Fresno State, Randa Jarrar, speaks to multiple issues in our current society. As the debates regarding “what should be done” about her hateful words directed at Barbara Bush (specifically) and the Bush family (as a whole) fly across the Internet, our First Amendment right to the freedom of speech is once again being publically argued. Many (it seems) in this current culture, believe that the First Amendment affords us the right to “say anything we want . . . about anyone we want . . . at any time we want” without any repercussions or consequences. But is this what the First Amendment really guarantees us as U.S. citizens? Here is the actual text of the First Amendment: “Congress shall make no law...
