Three 10th-graders gathered in a pod working on a project they hope would ultimately lead to more civil discourse in America. “A lot of people are neglecting other points of view,” said Sam Humrichouse, 15, who lives in Meridian, reflecting upon the vitriolic campaign rhetoric the country experienced in the presidential campaign. He and his two classmates were at work on a plan to create a website where people could come, tell their stories and answer questions about their lives. As people visit the website, they would see the diversity in those stories and it would help “create an opportunity to practice civil discourse online,” said Harry Northrop, 14, of Boise.
