“This is not about the article...it's about the video of soldiers in practicing in the snow...
I didn't know there were women in the South Korean army, usually I only hear about men...especially when Korean male celebrities are drafted...”
“I just want to say right off the bat that I am a high school student.
I live in a poor part of town and my school's notoriously poor. What I've started to notice this year is my school has a kitchen that doesn't even cook. They only reheat food from a boxes. They do not serve potatoes most of the time let alone other vegetables. All my school serves is meat,bread, and the occasional fruit. What's going to happen to my school if pizza becomes a vegetable. It's already served everyday!
Seriously what is going to happen next for me the poor child! Most of my meals come from school! My middle school had better food! This really has been a boiling point for me, F*** those congressmen and women!”

“Evelyn, thank you for your comment. When I was young, I grew up in a very abusive family and was living on my own by the time I was 15. School meals were survival for me. Often, school lunch was my only meal of the day. Back then, they served salads, cooked vegetables and other nutritious foods and I am still grateful for the good food they served. I still eat a wide variety of vegetables, lean meats, whole grains and other healthy foods to this day.
So, not only is Congress screwing with the nutrition of poor people, they are teaching all kids bad lessons about what constitutes a healthy diet. All so their buddies can have lucrative contracts with the school systems.”
