"OK, I'm not against the 2nd amendment, but my father grew up and Canada, where citizens don't have a constitutional right to bear arms, and there is little to no gun crime there. Not saying we should table the 2nd ammendment it's just…"

"Great blog Peter! I have not started the Divergent series, but I have heard great things about it. After reading yet another great review of this series, I will have to start it this summer."

"I would have to agree with Chris. Obviously if guns are just being sold on the streets, then legal gun stores are not the problem. The guns are obviously being brought in and sold to people by some other source, which I believe is most likely drug…"

"I watched the movie off the book but I didn't read the book. I probably should have read the book before so I could have understood the movie better."

"I enjoyed your blog post. It's sad that a parent would push their child because it's their job to encourage their child to do the best at whatever sport they chose."

"Great post. I am always hearing on the news of kids committing suicide due to bullying. Also, kids now are bullying other kids over the internet through social networking cites like Facebook. Bullying is becoming worse and worse every year. "

Insurgent

Posted on May 21, 2013 at 11:31am 6 Comments

The book Insurgent is the second book to a trilogy. Insurgent picks up where Divergent left off, after the Dauntless have been taken over by a simulation serum.

Tris grapples with figuring out where she belongs and how she can stop future attacks that are sure to rip the factions apart. Insurgent is full of twists and turns. Tris makes a lot of decisions that…

Gun Violence in Chicago

Posted on May 20, 2013 at 10:19pm 6 Comments

                 It has been a very sad to hear on the news, these past six months, of the killings going on in Chicago. I know that every time I watch the ten o'clock news I hear just another name of a young girl or boy getting caught in the crossfire of gang violence. Also, after a year in which Chicago's death toll surpassed 500, the bloodshed has continued in 2013 at a rate of more than one killing a day. It's been our city's deadliest January in more than a decade. Every young man…

It's Kind of a Funny Story

Posted on April 29, 2013 at 6:59pm 1 Comment

So the main character, Craig Gilner, is determined to succeed at life which means getting into the right high school, to get into the right college, to get the right job. But once Craig gets into Manhattan's Executive Pre-Professional High…

Divergent

Posted on March 31, 2013 at 5:00pm 1 Comment

Divergent by Veronica Roth is now my favorite book. Everyone has been talking about how good this book is, so I had to read it for myself. In the Chicago of the distant future, society has willingly divided itself into five "factions." They are Abnegation (the selfless), Amity (the kind), Candor (the honest), Dauntless (the brave), and Erudite (the intelligent). All 16-year-olds take an aptitude test revealing their true faction and then they choose one to…
