    • Dear Angel,
      I agree with your statement about how most teens are influenced into drugs by peer pressured, which is very true. Especially in small communities around Oakland, CA, I am sure there’s a lot of drug abuse happening among teenagers. Your piece of writing was awesome, I liked how you explained everything in detail and expressed your own thoughts on the conflict. Something else I found interesting and I have to agree one hundred percent is in your 4th paragraph, when you talked about teens falling into the influence of drugs to try and counteract their broken family. This is where a lot of teenagers feel lonely and depressed that they use drugs to feel better or happy. Definitely liked how everything connected and how fluent it sounded. The interviews were great as well, I think that was amazing and intelligent to do, it makes your readers intrigued and wanting to read more. Can’t wait to read more of your posts.
      Best,
      Anayeli

    • Dear Alexander,
      I love your kind words and comments to my post were very amusing to read but id like to know into more depth on what you liked about the post. I would love to receive some creative criticism from you as well if that’s not too much to ask. Do you have any similar writings on this subject? if so would you mind giving some help on what I could improve on in my future posts.

    • Dear Luna,
      Thank you for reading and quoting my with such precision, I would like to know if you noticed any flaws or slip ups in my writing and could make me aware of it, it would be greatly appreciated of you. I would like to write about more of these types of subjects but dont know what I could write about, have any topics that I could write about?
