Dear Julian Currier,
My class did something like this as well and I also enjoyed it because as you said it’s a different way of writing and taking words from a poem and changing and making it your own I believe it’s really amazing. Your poem sends an important message to the community because it make people look at something in a new light. To me the main message is making a very powerful speech into a very powerful poem and that was a very great idea.
Thank you for your poem I had a really nice time reading and hope you respond because I would like to have a conversation.
Sincerely, kalani limbrick 9th grader of life academy Oakland

Dear Julian,

I like how you used a speech from an activist like MLK JR. and use the I HAVE A DREAM speech to transform it into a poem that is based on the speech by using some key words and show a message to people around the society and community. You should improve more so that when you do your own poetry and speeches, you can use your skills as a thinker and a poet to have a very inspiring piece of writing to remember. Thank you for your time and have a great day!
