  • Dear Erika,
    I am amazed by your writing because it shows that you have grown as a writer. One sentence in the writing that stood out for me is “Violent crime in Oakland down 23 percent since 2012”.

    • Dear Aaron, your work has impressed me a lot I like the way you talk about soldiers coming back from war with PTSD. I think your blog is really important because it brings up very important points and your evidence does a very good job in showing how PTSD affects the community. I love how you talk about the violence causing PTSD and how to prevent PTSD we need to stop the violence. Your conclusion is very interesting because you bring up gun violence affecting the youth. I think you did a good job talking about the youth and adults suffering from PTSD because of other people’s actions. I hope you keep writing, I would love to see more of your work. Sincerely, Liz

  • Dear Grady,
    Your shadow box impressed me because you added pictures of people you love. It was also cool that you painted your box white and added the most important objects you have because it’s a better way of understanding who you are and what you think it’s important In your life.
    Sincerely, Aaron

    Dear Nevin,
    This post about your about your shadow box was cool because you explained the different stereotypes you as a Mexican and from Oakland have to experience and it’s important because everyone who was born and raised in Oakland are considered dangerous like you explained in your statement. I really like your post, I look forward to your…Read More
