This could be a good time to talk about media literacy--you could talk about how to evaluate sources and recognizing fallacies, and even show some examples and evaluate what makes them good or bad. (Potentially without even calling out specific news sources, but just by pulling quotes or examples.) It doesn't necessarily have to be political, but you can show why "Facebook news" can be unreliable and that there are better sources.

Student rights while in school.

I second the voting information. Even middle schoolers can be engaged in this topic. I'm working on my own "intro" item for fall, and voting and student rights seem to consistently pop up in this new COVID-19 environment.

My house got egged and tped over the weekend.

How can I move forward with this situation?

Thought I'd share this for inspiration. I was eating right and working out for the past few weeks and my weight on the scale was not budging which in turn was demotivating me.

Another 15 lbs to my target. lesson learned - Trust the process!

My boss often catches my careless grammatical/spelling mistakes in my communications, so I created a proofreading rubric and even had a colleague proofread it.

I work so hard on it and feel incompetent and like a massive failure. Lesson learned. 😞I now feel like I have to overcompensate and prove my worth through other means

To all the post-9/11 veterans, it’s a somber day that unites us all in the reason we fought.

Being joined as a fresher - Is it really something that I can decide whether to be in support or implementation project ? Is upgrading of ECC to S4 Hana in my hands ?
