    Dear Jake
    I am grateful to your poem , “Martin Luther King,” because I see that it is a really important person and it is really good for people to keep thinking about him. I like the way you used repetition in the poem. But would like to know more background information about him and did he accomplished his fight.One stanza that stands out for me is, “Brave, Confident, Bold
    Dad of Bernice, Dexter, Yolanda, and MLK III,
    Son of MLK Sr. and Alberta Williams
    Freedom for all,
    Happiness, inequality”
    I think this section is interesting because it is giving a wide information about him and how his personality is showing his character. Another line that stands out for me is, “Freedom, equality, no racism” I think this line is a powerful line because he is fighting against racism without using harmful emotion. We can say that he is confident and he knows what he is going through. Thanks for your poem. I look forward to seeing what you make next. Also it we was really nice to write this comment and I am looking forward to get to know you better with also other story or poem.

    One stanza that stands out for me is,“Martin , Brave, Confident, Bold,Dad of Bernice, Dexter, Yolanda, and MLK III, Son of MLK Sr.” I think this section is interesting because it catching the reader’s attention to know more about this written poem. Since they adjectives that you choose to characterize him are strong.
    Another line that stands out for me is, “Freedom, equality, no racism” I think this line is thought-provoking Because it makes the reader think about why those words if he never hear about Martin the person will do research . And know the appropriate meaning of all those words.
    Your poem reminds me a poem that I once wrote about Everyday use because I really like they way you show your poem with many emotions of feeling that you want people to feel it like you do. And this is the same thing I did then I hope the will feel it.

Then using some of strategies elements that we can feel it , touch ,smell and see. And those can of thing will bring me back to see others creations you made again.
