The problem of teen gang violence can be eliminated. It will, however, take time, money, and a combined effort on the part of many people. Organized, free, after-school programs such as: sports teams and games; art, music, and drama activities; internships in local area businesses and professional organizations; and interesting volunteer activities in the community would help engage teens in worthwhile pursuits outside of school hours. More job opportunities for teens, especially those funded by state and local programs, would offer income for teens as well as productive work for the community. Outreach to families through schools, community organizations, and places of worship would help promote inter-generational activities that could improve family closeness, helping teens to work on their problems at the family level, instead of taking them to the streets. If these programs can be implemented, we will surely see a decrease in teen gang activity and safer streets and neighborhoods for us all.
In many scientific fields, but certainly in other types of writing as well, the conclusion indicates relevant questions for further study or exploration. While this might seem to contradict the idea of closure, in fact, the closure on the article or essay usually occurs just before this suggestion, and this suggestion of further research areas serves to provide a large sense of completeness. In many topics of public concern, this "further research" suggestion takes a different form - a call for further awareness of an issue or problem.
There is one feasible solution to decrease the consumption of soda in Minnesota: The Minnesota State Legislature should make the sale of soda illegal in our state. Once soda is illegal in Minnesota, the amount of sugar consumed by individuals will drop dramatically, which will help curb the obesity epidemic and prevent future health complications. Some people will say that making soda illegal will increase the consumption of other sugary drinks like juice, but juice has some nutritional value because it has vitamins like Vitamin C. Other opponents might say that this will cause economic decline, but studies have shown that people will purchase other beverages like bottled water or seltzer water when soda cannot be purchased. Overall, this is a feasible and effective solution to this growing problem.
