    So many of you will know that I already made a video on Guam ages ago! This is a bit of a "take 2" on that as it's a fascinating place and this time I went on location and learned about what has happened on the island after the North Korean missile threat. Most importantly, I filmed a behind the scenes video with Brian from Real Engineering and Joseph from Real Life Lore which you can watch here:

    All these new stores are ruining the island. That was not all there back in 1973.....I was always on Tarague beach or in the base pool.

        Someday brutal Japanese ally with China, Russia then ruin the unsinkable aircraft carrier Guam threatening us. Chamorros behave like white yanks, they are extremely racists, they slap us, rape us, we don’t want that anymore.

          Brutal Japanese avoid visiting Guam because it’s USA.

            Correction. USA did not win against Spain. It bought the Philippines including Guam for 20 Million USD.

              Brutal Japanese don't want Guam to be US territory pointing missiles to Japan that's why brutal Japanese needed to occupy Guam first. But unlike Saipan, Chamorros in Guam are so well tamed guerillas by the US attacking brutal Japanese.

                    Guam is a beautiful place... people are awesome! Schools are great! I can’t tell you how much movies I saw about bullies in the US. I also hear from friends in the US about how they don’t feel as safe. Bullies are everywhere there! On Guam, if you stay to yourself, you won’t be bothered. Whether you’re on the bus, in the gym, in the bathrooms, etc. The public school education is not as atrocious as many of y’all ignorant people believe. How do I know this?
                    1) I lived on Guam for all my life
                    2) My cousins and many of friends are on the paths of scholarships (all attending public schools)

                    I attended one of the “ghetto-est” public middle schools. My thoughts? I made the best memories there. What did I do? I didn’t bother anyone and stayed within a circle of friends. This is an unbiased response. I have friends who attended this school and they all say the same thing. “It was awesome”.

                    Private schools lack opportunities... I have two cousins currently attended private schools (Bishop and St. Paul) and they talk about how they don’t have a ROTC, a Trio (ETS), or anything of the sort.

                    Everyone is talking about how bad of a place Guam is... about rape and murder. But what many people forget about is that that happens EVERYWHERE! I feel so safe to attend school there... to LIVE there. Every time I want to express myself and wear something eye-catching, I feel confident! Also, there has never been a school shooting in Guam history...

                    Please, give my home a break y’all 😓😫

                      They don't get to vote because they are only a territory. Is the LAW.

                                              I wish the u..s. lands didn't let philippines go. Imagine if U.S. still have the philippines then it can claim the West Philippine sea easily from china, which carries megatons of oil.

                                                              As much as Chamorros have a love-hate relationship with the US, it's better that we're a part of America because if Japan still had a hold of us. Chamorros like me wouldn't exist today. From a documentary I saw years ago, they slaughtered half the population before Uncle Sam came. Sure Chamorros had to give up their lands for the US military base but as long as the culture still exists today, I think we're fine and we can adapt because we're strong people.
