people of earth!!! My name is Betty and this is my last blog post on STDs Or
STIs (if you prefer). If you click here you’ll see my first blog post on this
issue which talks about why I’m discussing and interested in this topic and
some information on it. If you click here you’ll see my second blog post on
this which is mainly about more new information that I found out about this
topic and graphics that show you more about the risks of it.
even with all of this the one question that most certainly needs to be answered
is What has been done about with and
What can we do today to make it better? From what I know to raise the
awareness of this issue in each school in Philadelphia there is the health class that teaches the about the causes and effects of STD, HIVs,
and AIDs and it is mostly required that every student in the current school
must take this class. But as I have researched about this and lately it says in this article that was posted this year on April 16 that lately schools have made little progress in teaching students about these issues. Which I am very disappointed in. I have just recently learned that April was STD awareness
month. It says that it was made to call to the attention of young teens about
the impact that STDs or STIs can have on you and there are some people that
campaigning to raise the knowing knowledge of STDs and the importance of having safe sex.
In making a stand and a change I made a collage and two poems that I will print out and post around my school and as my teachers politely if I can hang it up in their rooms. The collage are for the ones that are more images that speaks to them and the poem is for the poem who feel that words are what has more impact and power and will actually read it.
I would like to acknowledge my close friend Yourcenar Destin with the collage and for reviewing my poems.

In these pictures the term Y.O.L.O is a youth slang word in a song by an artist named Drake referring to the saying "You Only Live Once". As you can see within the picture many teens take it the wrong way and end up making a big mistake that can change their life forever.
Please excuse the language within this for it doesn't matter what really matters is the meat and message behind it.
I made collage to reach out an explain the impact STDs can have on a young persons life thought pictures for people who are more about visuals than words.
Here is two poems. The first poem is what you can easily turn into a song if you like. It tells about the effects and STD can have too. The second one goes into more of a deep emotional term in which STDs take.Its Called ...
