    • Dear Amani,
      I loved this article very much because most of what you said was true. In paragraph 1 it quotes, “Reading these articles has taught me why it’s important to keep families together and not separate them. Children from the ages 1-16 who get separated from their parents tend to become more violent and depressed. They start to grow up with the mindset that their parents didn’t fight hard enough for them. This leads them to start to do violent acts to attract attention because they didn’t have their family around”. My parents did seperate when I was little so I did get depressed at times and I did tend to be bad, but not the BAD bad kid of bad, because I know being more than bad is not the way, and I want to be a good example for my little brothers because I love them so much. I want to be a good example for my mom and stepdad as well because they’ve done so much for me and raised me right.

    • Dear Amani :
      I am saddened by your writing, “What happens to children separated from their parents?” because of the truth, it holds. Not many people talk about the reality of separating families.
      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “Most of these kids when they get separated from their parents the government doesn’t even take good care of them. ” I think this is nice because It is very true, and I agree with it. The US government treats them all as if they were not important. For example, the government outs kids in concentration camps with the lack of even the simplest of health requirements.
      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because this topic hit very close to home.

    • My students created a presentation and spoke at our local town council meeting about selling vape pens 4 years ago. The council voted to move the pens from the front counter to behnid the counter where other tobacco products were located. Never doubt the power of your voice. Nice job!

    • Dear Amani,
      I found this article to be very interesting and many kids taking standardized tests can relate to it. I agree that standardized tests don’t show the full capabilities of a student is they aren’t tests takers and I don’t think that they should be required. I feel like they are seen as the most important factor of getting into a college when they shouldn’t be. Here’s another source I found that night help. https://standardizedtests.procon.org

      Sincerely,
      Abigayle Kendell
