Some people think that god is real, but other people think the god is not real. Sometimes I think that people don’t believe in god because they have a type of religion that do not let them to believe in that g
This is a pretty important topic as it affects the lives of billions of people across the world. Even though some people have quite different opinions on the matter, everyone is entitled to their own opinion.
I feel that it’s very interesting how you thought about this topic due to how so many people wouldn’t think about wether god is real or not so deeply. It’s a topic I never really thought far into and your opinion has really hooked me on how you think about this. I agree with your idea of all the different reasons why people may believe in god or not. It’s especially interesting how you brought the idea that people may not believe because of their religion as appose to just not thinking god is real. GJ

I am amazed by your poem, “Arancha’s Where I’ From,” because in this poem you express the type of holidays you like to celebrate and enjoy them, you also tell us about the type of food you like ,the hobbies you have , but not only what you like instead you also write about what you were told not to do.
One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is : “ I am from the red and white Christmas,” I think this is very delightful because you describe Christmas as a beautiful holiday full of love and joy celebrated with the ones you love.
Another sentence that I loved was: “I am from my dream to go to college, pass all my classes and get my degree.I am from my dream to become a doctor.” This stood out for me because this tells a lot about yourself like you are always positive and it seems like you would become such a successful person by the way you look up to things and your goals.
Your poem reminds me of something that happened to me.One time me and my mom decided to leave our country when I was also 9 years old I didn’t like the idea of leaving some family members and friends, but we had to leave the country because we had some personal problems with one of my mom’s family member, when we arrived in this country I turned 10 we were reunited with our family we started celebrating holidays together but it didn’t feel the same, the food was different and we realized that in this country there are more opportunities than in my native country, now I look up to graduating high school and getting a degree on college to become a doctor and make my mom really proud.
Thanks for your writing.
I look forward to seeing what you write next, because I know the type of content it will have and I’m pretty sure I will like all of them because your poems feel honest and tells a lot about your personality.

This is a youth-powered publishing platform that was started in 2003 by a group of teachers from local sites of the National Writing Project.
We merged several earlier blogging projects. We have found that there are many advantages to bringing students together in one site that lives beyond any particular class. It’s easier for individual students to read and write about their own passions, to connect with other students, comment on each other’s work, and create multimedia posts for each other. Further, it’s been exciting for us to pool our knowledge about curriculum, connected learning, and digital literacies.
There are over 8,000 posts and over 13,000 comments by young people on the site on topics as diverse as the American Dream, Shakespeare, and sports as well as original poems and stories.
Youth Voices is a platform for youth to write about their interests, both in school and outside of school: what they are reading, what their hobbies or future careers might be, what they enjoy in their spare time. Like all of us, students follow our national leadership and form opinions. They are also welcome to write about those topics as well.
Youth Voices is fully non-partisan and welcomes youth of all types, from all regions, and with all viewpoints. Educators support youth in writing and thoughtfully responding to each other through the use of commenting guides, using tags to show common interests, playlists to support self-guided inquiry; opinions expressed by writers are their own.
If being part of such a community makes sense to you, we invite you to join us. We welcome all youth and any teacher interested in having students publish online and participate in the give and take of a social network like Youth Voices.
