Netflix Drama Movies Review

Sometimes, it’s hard to find interesting movies to watch on Netflix. That’s why I decided to binge-watch a few movies from the drama genre section, rate them, and give my overall opinion on each. I sorted the movies from best to least that way you can decide whether or not these films are worth watching.

Who is Quaden Bayles?

Quaden Bayles is a nine-year-old boy from the city of Queensland in Australia. He suffers from the genetic disorder, achondroplasia, which causes dwarfism. Bayles has recently gone viral over a video recorded by his mother of him breaking down into tears because of his constant encounters with bullying at school. In the video, Quaden states several times, “I want to kill myself”. Even the voice of his mother breaks as she records and shows the effect bullying has on her child. His mother, Yarraka Bayles, warns parents that bullying prevention doesn’t do enough for the kids and that’s the reason suicides are not decreasing. 

Black History Month

Black History Month is celebrated every year in the United States during the month of February. During this month, people recognize historical African Americans who have contributed significantly to the United States of America. According to the article “Black History Month” by History.com, the month of February is also celebrated as “African American History Month” and was previously known as “Negro History Week”. However, now-a-days most people just name the celebration as Black History Month because it celebrates the history of Black-Americans. This article also makes a comment that Black History Month was first celebrated in 1915, which was about half a century after the Thirteenth Amendment was created. The Thirteenth Amendment abolished slavery.

The Student Council of WCHS

The student council of WCHS is operated by a group of students, from freshman to seniors, all nominated and chosen, that represent their peers and organize events for the school. Student council focuses on making everyone’s high school experience the best it can possibly be.

Jack Hall is the Senior Class President of the student council. He has been involved in student council all of his high school career so I decided to ask him a few questions about the group.

Iran’s Missile Attack On US Airbase

On Wednesday, January 8, 2020 Iran fired multiple missiles onto “two Iraqi bases housing US troops” https://www.cnn.com/2020/01/07/politics/rockets-us-airbase-iraq/index.html. As many people believed this was their attack as revenge to the United States since President Trump had their major general in the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, Qasem Soleimani, killed on the 3 of January in Baghdad, Iraq.

According to CNN.com, Iran specifically targeted the al-Asad airbase and American and coalition forces in Erbil that housed many US troops. When the news broke that Iran fired the missiles onto the base many feared that soldiers would have be killed and a third world war would erupt. Luckily, as of now no United States citizen has been injured or killed.
