What exactly does it mean when someone makes a New Year’s resolution? Making a New Year’s resolution is making a promise to oneself of self-improvement in the coming year. But change doesn’t always come easy.
Does climate change really exist? According to modern science, the Earth is 4.543 billion years old. Modern science also claims that humans have existed for about 200,000 years, with only 6,000 years of civilization, and 216 years of industrialization.

On October 29, 2015, I was sitting in my religion class thinking about the upcoming Halloween weekend, when I realized the seat in front of me was empty. At that moment, Ms. Ivins’ voice came over the loudspeaker to lead a prayer for a student who had just gone into emergency surgery.

Battling the invisible bias of society is something that needs to be addressed. Given the current racial climate, people tend to stay silent on the topic to avoid any sensitivity.
Invisible bias starts at home simply by hearing comments or jokes about a specific group of people. As a young child, a person hears this and those words can stay with him or herself. This way of thinking can be brought into everyday life and activities, even somewhere as safe as Notre Dame High School.

But should this be the case?
