Zabrina Yanella Watch the news once, and the repeated mass shootings makes it obvious that a change needs to take place in the process of how citizens can get their hands on firearms. The Second Amendment brings a sense of self-protection and needs to be respected, but for the safety of the countr...

Danger rarely ever sets foot in our school. It came close October 30 when the Wilson Talent Center in Mason went into lockdown because of a student who had a threatening weapon; juniors and seniors from our school were there during that situation. Speaking of lockdown, how does our own school deal...

There is quite a bit of pressure to come across as put-together and well-rounded on college applications. This can be quite difficult to do because of the competition to be accepted.

The time is here. The time of year for demoralizing and sexualizing women for parts of their body they have every right to expose. Instead of teaching teenage girls to feel ashamed of something as natural as their bodies, try teaching everyone else to stop oversexualizing the human body. It i...

Women have more than earned the right to do what we want with our minds, bodies and voices. The right to our own bodies is equally as important as the right to speak our minds.
