Regarding your story on the arrest of a Glen Burnie teacher on charges of sexually abusing students, I am wondering how a teacher could get away with such crimes for the past two years on school property ("Glen Burnie teacher charged with sexually abusing students," Dec. 9). As a 16-year-old girl myself, I feel that if the accusation are true, then he has permanently damaged those girls' lives. The whole situation is absolutely disgusting. I do not know how I could even go to school if I had to see such a teacher repeatedly and know what was coming next.

As a high school student, I am in full agreement with Alexandra Della Santina in that an astonishing number of girls spend nearly all of their time focused entirely on their appearance ( "Don't hate me because I like myself," July 8). Being able to state, "I think I'm pretty," should absolutely not inspire a pang of guilt. However, possessing the self-assurance to declare such "taboo" words will not launch you into a mindset of confidence when you spend your entire days in hallways full of girls that all share the deep desire to be a pant size 00. In order to fix that problem, we need to focus on what caused this generation of girls to focus so steadily on nothing but their appearance.

Two foolish, under-aged, teenage girls drinking and sitting on a freight train bridge, dangling their feet 20 feet above the street at midnight while Tweeting ("Derailed lives," Aug. 22), then buried in coal? The girls contributed significantly to their tragic demise. As in "self-inflicted. " The Sun's coverage included information about CSX accidents of the past ("CSX has history of Md. mishaps"). Why not a companion article about the jobs and economic benefit that CSX brings to Maryland and the danger of trespassing on railroad tracks and freight train bridges?

A Baltimore man was charged last month with allegedly pimping a teenage girl who had been reported missing in Baltimore County, officials said. Baltimore County police working with federal authorities on a human trafficking initiative were informed that the teenage girl, whose age was not released, had been reported missing in the county and was being featured on a website known for prostitution advertisements, officials said this week. An undercover officer scheduled an appointment for June 20 with the girl, who told him the "donation" would be $200, and arrived to meet the detective in a cab with two other people.

In the case of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius' ruling to reject the Food and Drug Administration's expert opinion regarding access to emergency contraception for adolescent girls, the ugly reality is that teenage girls engage in unprotected sexual intercourse. Unprotected from pregnancy due to lack of effective contraception, unprotected from sexually transmitted illnesses including HIV, unprotected from the aggressive sexual content of popular media and advertising, unprotected by social and family networks that ought to be looking out for them.

In light of the recent kidnapping of nearly 300 Nigerian schoolgirls and the worldwide call to #BringBackOurGirls, it is important to note that the difficulties facing young females in Sub-Saharan Africa extend far beyond this tragedy. Last week Jean Waller Brune, the Head of Roland Park Country School, wrote a moving piece about the challenges of girls' education around the globe ("Bring back our girls," May 8). I am a proud alumna of RPCS and remember Mrs. Brune fondly. Her words affected me profoundly, now more than ever, as I am a resident of Africa and witness these types of atrocities daily.

Marshall E. Price, a Caroline County blacksmith, met his fate at the end of a rope wielded by a lynch mob on July 2, 1895, for the murder of a 13-year-old girl, Sallie E. Dean, whom he accosted as she made her way to school. Earlier this month, with a friend, Joe Coale, I went to the Eastern Shore to spend a perfectly wonderful sun-splashed autumn day with former Gov. Harry R. Hughes, who lives in Denton. After talking for a while in the den of his home, Hughes suggested a tour of some of the county's historic sites.
