  • Dear Ariel,
    One thing I loved about your essay is how you elaborate on even the small things to help us have a bigger understanding of it.

    • Dear Ariel,
      One thing that I liked about your analysis is that your question was a question that some people like me wonder as well. You chose this question for the right poem. This poem is talking about how someone left their family for a better life which answers this question.

  • I really like how in depth you went into even in the smallest lines.For example the line “How should I accept nature”.

    • Dear Ariel:

      I am impressed with your post, “Immigrants in our own land,” because this situation is very common. The mexicans want a place where they can live better where the have opportunities. When the come to U.S most of the people come to work to take their family forward.

      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “he biggest personal life question for me is how do people cope with this mentally having to leave their home and having to work in a place you have never been in before.” I think this is so real because people think and feel that U.S is a place that have a better place where the people can feel happy.

      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because this themes are so important for all of us because we need to understand that U.S is not the only place where you can have a good future. Mexico is also a good place there are opportunities there too. We can be safe and happy if we want.

  • Thanks for this comment I really like the fact that im not the only person that has had an ecounter with gangs
