Featured Video: Teens and Guns
StageofLife.com produces and releases an exclusive Teen Trend Report each month on its YouTube Channel.

Here is our Video Report on Teenagers and Guns. We interviewed teens on both sides of the issue. What's your opinion?

At some point during high school (or several times if you're lucky), your teacher in English or Language Arts class will turn everyone's attention to poetry.

Well, whether you're looking for inspiration to fuel your love of poetry or need extra inspiration to help you discover why poetry is so powerful, view the video below of Gina Loring reciting her original, Somewhere There is a Poem. Watch the entire clip...it gets better as it goes. This is why poetry can change the world.

Video: High School Musical - Twilight Parody
This video is a parody using a mix of High School Musical and Twilight.
