Death With Dignity

Terminally ill patients deserve the right to die

Right now, somewhere in our country, there is a woman who’s terminally ill in a place where she cannot die with dignity.

The modern American political parties aren’t looking too stable nowadays. There is disorder in Washington DC, and the disorder is based in the fall of political unity. There have always been lines cut deep between the Democrats and Republicans, but recently those lines have been even more defined.

Both the Democratic Party and the Republican Party are in states of internal chaos, for unique and most-likely unresolvable reasons. Continue reading “American Party Breakup”

We Need More Athletic Options

Recently, there has been talk that MHS might be changing its athletic option policies next year. Athletic option allows juniors and seniors to opt out of taking gym if they participate in a school sport on the varsity level. In order to receive athletic option, they must go to 80% of games/ meets and practices. This system has been great for upperclassmen who are juggling sports, school, and other extracurricular activities. However, for freshmen and sophomores who are varsity athletes, this system has been far from accommodating. Continue reading “We Need More Athletic Options”
