One question. What is global warming? What, really is global farming? These, my readers, are the questions, I have been asked about by my dad. We had a sort of discussion about this, and he was saying that global warming is fake and I don’t know what recycling means and why we should do it.  He also said to write about each candidate and that.  So, yeah. Let’s just get into this.

Global warming is, *ahem*, the unusually fast increase of Earth’s average surface temperature. This is due to the greenhouse gases- water vapor, carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, and ozone. What are these gases? Well, they are from  Earth’s atmosphere and trap heat. They let sunlight pass through the atmosphere but prevent the heat that the sunlight brings from leaving the atmosphere. Anyway, Global Warming has been caused by greenhouse gases released by people burning fossil fuels. 
Global Warming has caused the melting of glaciers and ice sheets which causes sea levels to rise. Another possible effect includes large-scale changes in ocean circulation.
Now, my facts/ what I am writing about talks about the candidate’s opinions on CLIMATE CHANGE. I couldn’t find global warming, but, climate change does include temperature rising and sort of is related to global warming. Anyway, here we go!
Presidnet Trump:
Presidnet Trump “tweeted” that China created the concept of Global warming, and just for them, only to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive. He also said that the weather has been really cold- by the way these are probably old tweets- and “Global warming Hoaxsters” were forced to call it climate change to ” keep $ flow”. Now, these are tweets. Let’s talk about what he’s said in person or on an interview. Still continuing form that same link, President Trump says that climate change is “mythical” or “nonexistent” or an “expensive hoax”. So, teh quote aid about the Chinese creating climate change was said in 2012 and was later claimed to be a joke. So, he does believe that it is fake, but not that it was created to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive. 
Joe Biden:
What does Mr. Biden think about climate change? Well, I don’t have a clear answer, but I do have this. Joe Biden likes to say that he was among the first to introduce a climate change bill. Fact-checkers are agreeing to this. This was the Global Climate Protection Act of 1986. This bill, “directs teh president to establish a Task Force on the Global Climate to research,. develop, and implement a coordinated national strategy on the global climate.” Well, if he did try to do this, then he surely might believe in climate change and global warming. “In 2007 he supported higher fuel efficiency standards for motor vehicles, which passed, and in 2003 modest caps on greenhouse gases, which did not.” What did the second vote in 2003 do? Well, according to this helpful link, it was to reduce U.S emissions of greenhouse gases to, “2,000 levels by 2010.” The vote turned outa s 43 votes for yes, 55 for against, and 2 for not voting. 
Anyway, that was a review of global warming and on what both candidates think about it. I do realize, now, that I didn’t talk a lot about Presidnet Trump’s side, so I am going to write more on Global warming greenhouse gases, and such tomorrow and include more on each candidate’s side. Bye!

Part 93- Rigging and Paranoia

So, we are back with another blog for our 2020 Election log. Today, we are going to discuss rigging of polls and, paranoia- being paranoid- as you can tell from the title. This is, all, Election-related so, it’s obvious it’s about Election rigging and being paranoid about the results. What is Election rigging? Election rigging is illegal “tampering” or interference with the process of an election. So, I did look up online if the 2016 election was rigged or not. Ok, this may not seem liek it, as you are just reading the final product of the blog, but I have deleted my proof of rigging/ fact of rigging at least twice now. I was looking for illegal rigging. Not what I’ve just read right now. On showing ID for voting rigging. According to my two previous links I HAD put on, the election was rigged because there was a rule to show a photo ID to vote- or ID. So, apart from that, there wasn’t any rigging in the 2016 elections at all. Another thing I wanted to talk about was paranoia. you knwo how I’ve mentioned multiple times about Presidnet Trump being so “paranoid” and saying that the polls are fake when they’ve been saying that Joe Biden is ahead of them? Well, I’ve got further thoughts on that. 

Presidnet Trump has been, acting “paranoid” every time the polls say that he isn’t winning. He says that his polls are saying that he is winning and that Joe Biden isn’t. That he’s really ahead. I know that despite the fact that he has said that he had the real polls last election, and they said he was winning, President Trump may just be saying that because he doesn’t want to lose the election. I also said, before, that he didn’t want to lose- taken form an article which I linked- and I can see how that plays as he refuses to see the polls that may or may not be fake- that say he is losing. I’m not trying to disrespect the Presidnet, but I am just pointing this out. He really is paranoid about not winning. 
I know this blog ends quick, but I actually started writing this about an hour before this got published, so all my thoughts and ideas and opinions washed away at that time, so I don’t have any of the things I was going to write. Hopefully, they come back to me tomorrow so I can give you a non- disappointing response/ blog. Bye.

Part 92- Election

98 days until Election Day everyone. 98 days. Hello everyone, today’s post is going to be resuming our discussions on the 2020 Election topic. I’ve already done a post on the COVID-19 situation, and I think I’ve done another on a topic I do not remember, so, we are going to be continuing. I, unfortunately, do not have any fresh news stories as my newspaper did not come today, so this may just be opinions and thoughts.

So, what do you think about the Election day? I mean, usually, according to the political shows I’ve seen and my tiny 12-year-old knowledge, people go to someplace and vote there. Due to COVID, will that happen this year? That also can show on each candidate. On what they want to happen and how they think of Corona. Such as, if one candidate says that they want it to go on as usual without doing the elections online despite COVID, then, wold their plans and thoughts of how to solve it and get rid of it quicker seem fake? Hopefully, in those 4-5 months, this problem/ pandemic would have reduced so there are fewer cases, and because of Oxford’s recent breakthrough on a cure, we could even have a possible vaccine soon or even with other companies; meaning, that it won’t be as dangerous to do social voting as now. Sure there are much, much, MUCH fewer deaths than before, but there are still MANY cases. I did check the case charts today, and it said that last Friday there were much FEWER cases than before. That’s good. Also, how is this Operation Warpseed doing? President Trump did say that he was working on it, but I have not seen or read any news that explains further on the topic or tells me anything about the progress. Also, what does Mr. Biden think of this plan? Of course, he is the opposing candidate, but would it be wrong to appreciate the skilled and thought out ideas of the other? The two plans for this pandemic are awfully similar, but then again, isn’t that everyone’s plan to get rid of this virus? To come up with as many “stations” possible to create a cure and then immediately distribute it to everyone so everyone is immune to it. 
Also, what’s been happening in the primaries? I know what the primaries are and what the candidates usually do, but like, would it change due to everything going on? Would there now be rules to wear masks? I guess that also depends on the candidate, right? The candidate may decide the rules and can do an option for wearing a mask. Would it be a better influence to wear masks if the candidates wore it? I know that it’s an option and something the people can choose if they want to or don’t want to do, but if they are asking to wear masks in public more often, do you think it would encourage people more if they wore one? Probably yes and no at the same time. It’s your own decision, one can only try to persuade you and tell you why or why not, leaving it all up to you. If all the leaders wore a mask, governors, mayors, president and more, then do you think that people would wear masks more often? Some people could, not be wearing masks because the leaders aren’t, but if they did, or if they did wear it more often, then do you think that people would be wearing masks more? 
Ok, these seemed more like questions than thoughts, but hopefully, they do make you question as well, and wonder a lot about this like I am/ did. BYE!

Part 91- A new addition to the plant family

99 days until the 2020 Presidential Elections. How, exciting. I know that on Friday, I had a very unusual blog on my day, but, it was an awesome day. I am going to confess that I haven’t read the newspaper this morning, so I don’t really know any new news or anything that I can really write about for the 2020 Election log. I know that it’s disappointing, but, that’s just how it turned out. But, I do have some exciting news.

So, this is a bit of a memory blog. In Ohio, before we moved, my grandparents or my parents bought a lovely apple tree and planted it in our backyard. Our backyard in Ohio was HUGE. I’m not joking. We had two maple trees that weren’t saplings at all, a small pine tree, another tree which I don’t remember what type it was, and my little apple tree. The apple tree wasn’t that big and was still growing. I do know, that my grandparents/parents planted the tree for me. I do have a small confession to make. I never really took care of it. I mean, I was a little kid, but still. I didn’t really eat the apples it grew. Once, I did pick some apples and brought them into the apples but I never ate them. They were small apples though. Anyway, yesterday my parents went to Costco to look at some plants and came home with a beautiful Crabapple tree, that is still a young plant. It doesn’t have strong branches but, it is still beautiful. I now have a new addition to my lovely garden of cucumbers, okra, watermelons, bitter gourds, tomatoes, pineapple, and a grapevine, which I very rarely or haven’t mentioned at all. Just finding out that they got one for me, brought back so many memories. The last day we would be spending in Ohio, was the worst. I didn’t realize how bad moving was until I came home from my last day of school to my home all boxed up. We went through every room and I just cried. That was my home, I lived there for as long as I knew, and I was leaving it to some new place I’ve never been to. After that, over the years, and even today, I always look back to that beautiful and grand home I lived in and I always regretted not being able to take care of my little tree. The new people who moved in wouldn’t knwo about my little tree, and might not care about it. They might just think it was planted for decoration or something, but that tree was for me. And I LOVE it. So, getting this sweet little Crabapple tree means so much to me and I promise that I will never make it feel left out as I did to my little tree in Ohio. I will make sure that it grows- as I never saw my old tree grow or spent much time with it- and I will take care of it with all of my heart. 
There is a picture of my tree at the end of this blog. I know that I am supposed to be writing about the Elections, but I had to share this memory with you all. I hope you all are well. I am going to include updates on my apple tree when I do update blogs on my plants, as it is now a new addition to the plant family, and I can’t wait for it to grow and start producing flowers and fruits. BYE! ( By the way, there was a glare from the sun so I couldn’t take a picture right and had to edit out my finger that as in the shot. Plus, the picture  may or may not have been taken wonky)

Part 90- Fantastic Friday

Hello everyone, today marks 102 days left until teh 2020 Presidential Elections. I can’t tell you, how great today has been. One, it is Friday. Two,  have all my HW for Marathi Shala ready, graded and I did REALLY WELL on it, and my story which I am going to be presenting ( Oh God) because I left it at a cliff hanger, is written and pre-checked ahead of time because last week I didn’t present it because my teacher sort of forgot. Anyway, on Thursday I finished all of my Math Kumon- Level J and yesterday finished all my Reading Kumon, III ( I, 2), and had no packets today. That saved me about half an hour of time, AND, my violin lesson was extremely fun as I am learning a new song and getting BETTER at my shifting scales. My friends and I are going to be making our own youtube channel with videos and stuff. Right now it’s just being set up and trying out uploads of videos. Dad approved the fact that I can be in them even if they are public, and I am super excited about that project. I’m trying out vlogging right now as I am filming myself blog, for a productive video. I didn’t have that much stuff to be productive about today, so this is like, my only recording.  I feel so professional right now. Oh, and ALSO, my Kumon certificates came yesterday. There is like a rank, Bronze, then Silver, Gold, and then Platinum. Platinum is sort of the highest level. Usually, I’m a Gold student which is good, but not the best, but my Math award came out as PLATINUM THIS TIME!!!!!!!!!!! YAY!!!!!

It’s unbelievable how so many things can happen in a single day, and be good at the same time. This pandemic is such a benefit as well, as I wouldn’t have been able to get Platinum without being able to do 10 pages every day with so much free time, nor be able to start a channel with my friends, nor be able to finish my book series, nor be able to improve so much in violin, and so much more. I know that this blog may be a bit rubbish as it doesn’t talk about a lot of INTERESTING stuff, but I just wanted to share my day, and I hope everyone else has an amazing and fabulous day like mine. I just hope that Marathi SHala will also be as good as my day. One can only wait and see, or go time travel in the future and probably disrupt the time strand. 

Part 89- Just My thoughts

Well, I guess you know what this blog is about. To be honest, it’s not really my thoughts. I just don’t know what to write. Yes, yes, there are thousands of topics to write about, a lot on the elections. 103 days left. BUT, I honestly am not in the mood to update you on the different thoughts of each candidate. I am really tired for some reason, like I keep yawning and I CANNOT stop. I also need to send my recording of a song to my teacher, which I was hoping I could send much earlier in the day, but that got sidetracked as an incident occurred allowing me to be able to play Minecraft for like an hour. No, it was not because I got lazy or wanted a fun break. So, this is going to be a short blog. I wanted to actually mention yesterday’s blog. I don’t knwo why, but I really liek yesterday’s blog. I guess it was probably because I wrote so much, and did something like a proper essay, but also because I really expressed myself. And because I actually DIDN’T LIKE my BOOK SERIES a lot. It’s very surprising. I am reading a new book though. It is actually a passage from my Kumon packet, so I got to read the beginning of the book before being able to actually read it. It is CODE TALKER by Joseph Bruchac. No spoilers, so, wist for my review post if you want to learn more. Or, just, look it up on Google. I do actually really want to go to this Japanese bookstore. Like the one, I probably did or did not mention in an earlier post. Anyway, my parents went to a Japanese market for some fish and got e a bunch of Japanese treats. Boba in two flavors, Soba noodles, Rice crackers, Matcha Pocky sticks, a delicious tasting “cake” pastry, a sponge roll thing that tasted strange, and Ice cream boba bars. They’re just frozen ice cream bars of brown sugar boba and bubble tea. Anyway, they were going to also check out teh bookstore but it was closed. I have a manga series in mind that I want to read, as it is what one of my favorite shows is based on, so I’m really looking forward to it. Hopefully, they have it, and in English. I still don’t know a lot of Japanese, otherwise, I can always politely ask for it on Amazon and sort of beg if my parents say no. Hopefully, they say yes. I know this was supposed to be short but I wrote alot so, sorry about that. This blog may be very mediocre, but, I’m tired so, sorry. 

Part 88- Book reviews, and dissappointment

SO! I just finished my book, The Enchantress, ad I have the final review. The final review of the series. I have to say, the ending was different than I anticipated. NO SPOILERS! LEt’s get on with it.

Traveling ten thousand years into the past, Sophie and Josh followed Dee and Virginia Dare to Danu Talis. The legendary city of Atlantis, where Palamdeds, Shakespeare, Joan, Scathach, Prometheus, and Saint- Germain are. As the Flames take their final breaths in San Fransisco, the battle for the world begins and ends here. It’s up to Sophie and Josh. The two that are one must become the one that is all. One to save the world, and one to end it. 
So before I begin this review, I’m going to point something out. As this book is the final of the series, I’m going to also do a series review in this post. So, it will be on the whole series altogether. 
BOOK Review:
This book was ok. I mean, I LOVED The Warlock. No doubt, it was the absolute BEST book in the series. And, after such an amazing book, I was so excited to read The Enchantress. I was full-on ready. I dived into the book, and this is what happened. It started out, AMAZING. Like, there was everything from the previous book. We learn that Isis and Osiris are the twins’ parents. We see an ongoing battle on Alcatraz. Everything. I have to say, it got, INCREDIBLY BORING at the end.  I could have written this post a long long time ago, but the end got so unbelievably dull, that I sort of read much less. Like, only a chapter a day.  I’ll tell you why. So, teh whole reason they go back in time is to complete the prophecy. They mention the battle of Danu Talis, and them being ta the battle. I love action in books If it’s a battle like a war, I love reading it- maybe fiction ones- because they are so descriptive and actually are interesting to read about. Action- I mean. I was full-on ready to read some battle stuff. Gilgamesh said I’ve seen you two at the battle of Danu Talis. I was reading that, and my mind went, ” I  HAVE to read about the battle.” Now, in the book, do you know what happens? DISCLAIMER: SPOILERS. Well, THERE IS NO BATTLE. They even MENTION it. Liek, it’s the final battle. They go back in time to be there, lead the army. And in the end, there is no battle. I’m really overdramatic right now. In the end, it says that Marethyu- aka Josh Newman- set off to end the world of Danu Talis. That’s it. Nothing else. No action on what happened. I was so disappointed with that. 
Not to mention, Alcatraz scenes. I understand that they were to show The Flamels saving the city but please, add something more. It was quite boring and dull to read. Add something where they go back to help the twins or something more! Just anything!
Plus, the ending. The ending was just, shock. And confusion. And me still trying to understand the whole story! It ends with, ” You know what I have to do Sophie. Josh says. And Sophie is crying like, No! Why can’t I do it? Then she leaves with their friends, and Josh combines all 4 swords of power which form into a hook and make him Marethyu, destroyer of worlds and Death. No, I mean, his name literally means Death. After that there is a note he sends to Sophie mentioning the wedding of Aiofe and Niten, creating the Shadow Realm of which he uses to trap Scathach and Joan and etc. That’s it. Nothing else. I wanted to read about the battle. The wedding. Sophie’s side of the story rather than some letter Josh send to her about what she was doing or what he read about in the Codex of what she would do. Also, in the end, it’s liek Dare and Dee never existed after that. Where were they? Maybe I missed something and it’s my fault, but I don’t remember Dare nor Dee being in the finale of the book. 
I liked how it was such a new perspective in the book. Like, this book is mainly set in the world of Danu Talis. ( Besides Alcatraz scenes) It explains about the Elders and what Danu Talis was like after all that mentioning in teh previous books. I also loved how, as it is the finale of the series, tied it all together. It explained a lot. Like, about Dee’s masters and of Sophie and Josh, the Flamels, and the other characters. 
Oh, and I have understood the cover. The symbol on the right is a vimana, and the one on the left is the Pyramid. the one that Josh stands on as he transforms into Marethyu. I haven’t exactly understood the bottom one, other than it being a moon. I don’t understand the main symbol though. I think that it may be a small representation of the Yggdrasill. 
SERIES Review:
 The series was an okay one. I got this brand new, super awesome looking series. My parents said that it was like a sequel to Harry potter- with Nicholas Flamel- and I was overjoyed. I could not wait to read it. After picking up the first book, I loved it, before I lost all interest in it. It was extremely boring and no interest. I mean, fantasy is something that always amazes me. I love fantasy novels. Anything with magic. That pretty much sums up all my novels in progress -ones that I am not doing a partnership on. But, goodness gracious, the book was just too much.  A battle already? In the series? Then Hekate just dies?? Bastet is only mentioned from that? It was just, a bit of a mess in my opinion. The second book was MUCH MUCH better. The new introduction of the characters actually stuck and was well explained. I loved it. The third book was slightly worse but still good. Meeting Gilgamesh was teh best part. And the battle with meeting Palamedes and Will Shakespeare. The fourth book started weakening in interest, but then it sparked up in the end when they had to go back in time. Time travel back 10 thousand years to an ancient civilization that was advanced??? YES PLEASE!! The 5th book was AMAZING. The Warlock s without a doubt, my most FAVORITE book. So much action. Josh has turned on them without realizing it, and we see what he is thinking and how true the twins’ connection really is. How they go back in time and meet their “parents”. The Enchantress. Well, I guess this blog tells you how I thought of this book. I do really question the series. Like, the twins are so focused on gaining their powers and becoming Awakened, but in teh end, THEY NEVER USE THEIR POWERS. Only the swords. Literally, there is a rare mention of them using their powers.  
One remarkable thing about this series is that the story takes place in like, 2 weeks. You think that because there is so much going on, the plot would be going through several days, but no. It progresses into an adventure a day. Without realizing it, you may read several adventures that happen in a day, and turn the page to see, Friday, June 8th. It’s fantastic. 
Despite how many problems this series had, I would recommend it. It’s not making the charts as an absolute favorite, but, it’s on the list. If there were some small changes and additions, then I believe that it would have been fantastic and even better. It is an amazing series, not as good as I was expecting, yet still AWESOME. Anyway, this was the final book review on the, The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel, series, and I hope you all check out the books. ( Especially The Warlock) BYE!!!!!

Part 87- Elections and cures

So, big news. As we all know, there is a very terrible and chaotic pandemic right now. And, we have all been desperately asking for a cure and a way away from this. Well, now we do. It’s not exactly a proper cure, but it is a possible cure. In Oxford University, a group has reported that their COVID vaccine candidate was in early-stage human trials to be safe. If I understand correctly, this means that they have in the testing stages, it is showing as safe. THIS IS AMAZING. After that news, there really is nothing else left to talk about. So why the heck did I write Elections as the title and tag it as an Election log? Because….. there are 105 days left until the election day, and we’re going to talk about what each candidate thinks about the vaccine for this pandemic. 

In the end, it’s probably going to be President Trump and Joe Biden who will be going “against” each other.  Here is my first source. So, according to my sources- aka the link I just pasted- President Trump made a “speech”. Statement….talk session…update? Anyway, he mentions the vaccine. He says, that he has launched, Operation Warp Seed. This project’s goal is to develop and distribute the vaccines as quickly as possible. Prior to the end of the year is what he is hoping. He also said that this is something no one has ever seen in our country since the 2nd World War. I’m not sure if that was to emphasize how much is going into this plan or just to tell how good we are. ( The U.S.) I do like the fact that he has come out with this huge plan to come up with a plan to get us a vaccine fast. President Trump also tells us how much it will get us together. From the American industry to the military. Plus, they are also working with many other countries who have brilliant doctors and scientists to come up with a cure. That sounds like a REALLY REALLY GOOD PLAN.
Now, Joe Biden may not be able to do all of that, but, he does have a few strategies in mind on how he would handle the pandemic. Here is my 2nd source. So, Mr. Biden says that his plan is to work with allies across the globe. This is like President Trump’s plan. His campaign says they will “marshall all the tools of the federal government to procure the necessary supplies to fight the COVID-19 pandemic…” As well as, distribute a potential vaccine for the virus. Again, the same plan. Now, though this may sound good, it really isn’t different than President Trump’s, and is now like, the plan is already forming, so he needs to have some different strategy. But, THAT”S NOT ALL. His plan also includes using the BARDA- Biomedical Advanced Research Development Authority- to, ” make sure vaccine production is adequate and work to undo Trump administration tax incentives to encourage on-shore pharmaceutical production.” I don’t really understand the last part. Is this plan mainly to make sure vaccine production is adequate or, to undo Trump administration tax incentives? I know that you are running in a presidential election Mr. Biden, but what is the focus? I need to ask, IS THIS YOUR MAIN PLAN FOR HANDLING CORONA, AND WHICH ONE OF THESE ARE YOU TRYING TO DO?
But, overall both of the possible candidates do have an excellent and well thought out plan for the vaccine. Though it is not what I was asking for when I typed up my question on google, it is related to it and answers my question in a different way. Anyway, 105 MORE DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY!!!!!!! This log will now have a new log in it, the 2020 ELection log, which is basically a countdown until election day. Pretty much, 105 more days of writing the same blog over and over again. Anyway, bye!

Part 86- Polls, news, debates and a whole lot of arguing

So, my title isn’t exactly what my blog is about. It’s the topic. So, many 12-year-old kids such as me may not be interested in the presidential elections, or alot into politics. I used to think it was completely boring. But, after watching one of the most amazing political shows and shows in general, ever, I have started seeing these in a new light. I now understand what goes on in these elections. The primaries and the debates, what to do and how they do it. Electoral votes and votes. Representatives and so much more. However, that is not our topic. Sorta. Our topic is something very recent happening. In only 106 days, the elections for the president will begin. I can hardly wait. Anyway, President Trump is running again and the most likely candidate will be Joe Bide. PROBABLY. So.0, as we know in 2016 President Trump was elected president. Now, here’s the thing. Polls were saying that he wouldn’t win. That he wouldn’t be president and President Trump kept saying these were fake polls and that his polls say that he was actually winning and doing well. Well, we can all see how accurate his polls are. Now, as the 2020 elections come up, he is again saying that these are phony polls. Now, I want to actually look into this. I want to give my opinion on what might be happening and who may be winning. Let’s begin. 

So, as far as I know, President Trump started saying these when the polls started showing that Mr. Biden was ahead in Texas and in the “election”. Maybe it was also before, but this is only to my limited knowledge. So President Trump says that he wants to see, not just say yes or no, and he didn’t do it last time either. This was a bit unclear to me, so I think he might be talking about accepting the results. He also says that he wasn’t losing and that these were fake polls. Plus he says that he doesn’t like to lose.
Now his proof from 4 years ago about fake polls was hard to disagree about. He did win and his polls said he was winning. But now, I’m not so sure. There was also another article saying that in teh elections a lot of Dallas suburb people have been keeping teh Republicans in power for decades but are now are component of the Democratic party’s political resurgence. This is because of how President Trump has been handling the rising COVID cases. 
Ok, my opinion. So, I think that the polls may be true. President Trump did say that he didn’t like to lose, and he is from Texas. Normally it would be like he would have full-on support from them, also because we are a republican state, but now, a lot of people have been becoming the key for Democrats in elections. President possibly doesn’t want to believe it and say that his polls are saying he’s winning. I know that there is probably a huge possibility that I’m wrong but, I’m just stating my opinion. Now, others could have realized that they should do real polls if they actually did post fake polls because they didn’t want President Trump to win. So, they might have posted real one this time, and these may be accurate results. President Trump may not want to admit that he may be losing a bit in the polls, but maybe he is right. I do believe, though, that these polls may be right this time. 
Anyway, that is my opinion. I know it seems like I wrote a lot, but it’s just stating stuff over and over again. I do apologize. this is, not my best blog and it didn’t come out how I was hoping it would, so I’m going to try it again tomorrow and try to explain a bit more on this topic and give more updates on teh elections. BYE!

Part 85- My voice makes a difference


So, this post was supposed to be out on July 15th, but then an incident occurred, delaying it. Let me give e a brief history on this topic. So, on July 7th, 2020, I made a post on the ICE plan to send foreign studnets back to their country because colleges are doing online school. I then made a post on legally vs. ethically and brought in that post as an example, changing my opinion, on July 10th, and now, on July 17th, there is one more post- today’s- that ties the whole thing together. The link above is on the news clip of President Trump letting go with the plan to send the students back home. This news is actually from 2 days ago, but I got delayed so this news is about 2 days late if you haven’t read about it already. 
So, this article says, that after facing 8 federal lawsuits, President Trump let go of the plan to send foreign studnets back to their home country. This announcement had brought relief to thousands of foreign students who were in fear of being deported back to their country. A 19-year-old computer science major from India said that he was having terrible anxiety at the thought of going back and being exposed.  Even though they are not being sent back, there is a rule that they cannot have their classes entirely online- like everyone else. 
If you remember, my first post was supporting President Trump- but I had my own reason. because I believed it would be better for them in case they get sick and so they have better care if they do. Later, in my legally vs ethically blog I talked about how President Trump’s decision was legally right but ethically wrong. It was legally right because he was allowed to do that and in power to, but, it was NOT the right thing to do. I later changed my opinion to the other side on not sending them back, but with a particular question. My question was about my opinion. How it was legally and ethically right or wrong. I as a 12-year-old kid who writes blogs and plays Minecraft cannot do a lot to make an act like that happen, but I can try to make an ethical opinion or a decision that follows the laws. I was only thinking about this in a caring way for the foreign studnets so they can be taken care of properly, not because I don’t want them here in the U.S. So, my question was, whether my opinion was ethically right even though it was a bit like President Trump’s decision. 
The main reason for this blog is because I am so glad that I could make a difference. There were probably so many other people who disagreed or had different opinions on this action like me and tried to speak up about it. My voice might have been small as I write a blog that possibly very few people read, but it probably did contribute to the change in the act, and I’m glad. I’m glad that I may have been heard. 
Anyway, this blog and my 2 other ones make me proud. I’m really happy that I could or had made a change, and I hope I can still do so using my writing skills and positive mind, and my voice. I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend and an awesome day!
