    Dear Itzel,
    I really like you writing it was amazing. Something that stood out to me was “Short people should realize that WE are lucky to be small and short that we can do things that other people can’t do”, I agree with you because i’m short and I like the way i am and yes there’s things that short people can do that tall people can’t do.Thanks for your writing.I look forward to seeing what you write next because the writing that you did was amazing and it connects to me because i am also short.

    I really enjoyed your style of writing for this post, somewhat of a mix between prose an poetry. I think a lot of people are biased against short people, and its actually a bigger issue than people realize. Tall people are more likely to be given jobs, promotions, o privileges, and it just isn’t fair. I’m glad your poem cleared up some of the misconceptions about short people, keep up the good work!

    Dear Itzel,
    I really enjoyed reading your poem. While reading your poem it made me realize that there is nothing wrong with being short. I liked how you used some examples of what it is like to be short because I feel like I can relate. What stood out to me the most is how your compared what it is like to be short and tall, that gave your poem more of an understanding. Great job!
