    • Dear, Armando

      I feel satisfied about your topic ” less gun less worries “. one scentence that stood out to me was ” Also, it discusses mostly about suicides in different countries and compare them.” tis scentence stood out to me becuse I dont understand how does suicides relates to gun violence. how ever I dissagree with the pharagraph that has this scentence because it does not make scence to me. but your other pharagraps were exelent so keep working hard.
      scincerly, Victor Gonzalez.

      • Dear Victor, thank you for your support and positivity. I really like how you agree with my post about gun violence because gun violence is a really big issue in the whole world especially the united states. Also that suicides cause by firearms is a really critical fact and hopefully in the future i will write more about it and try to ave people think about it if i can.

        • Dear Armando,

          I think your post was very inspiring because you are talking about how gun violence is a big proble that has been here for a long time. A line that stood out to me was “Gun Violence is a very big problem, it has happened before, it is happening right now, and it will happen in the future.(Gonzales)” and I can add that we can change that if we take more actions bout who is eligable for having weapons or if weapons should still be aloud.Thanks for writting, keeep it up, you are inspiring.

          Greatfully, Cesar Sanchez.

          • Dear Cesar, thank you for your support and also it really important to me that i am getting good feedback which who wouldnt. Also the fact that you said that i am inspiring, I will work on that and get more academic because writing isnt my thing but in order to become a really good writer, i and everyone else is going to need our teachers feedback, support and tools in order to become highly educated people. And again thank you for your support, it really helps.

              I am proud of your work “Countering Assumptions”, because you put good grades and a Rubiks cube to show your self to people that Mexicans are smart and can actually be successful in life. Something else that stood out to me was the bike and rock climbing because you don’t really see Mexicans rock climbing or ridding a bike instead there seen as farm workers who work in the hot sun dying and never experiencing their life to the fullest. One part of your art that stood out to me was the dream catcher because as you told me it was shown to take all the hate and dominant narratives to get turned into counter narratives, which was very clever of you to do. Your artwork reminds me of something I made once. One time I got bullied by being called names and for being colored because people thought I was dumb and worthless. I’ve been judged based of from where I live, being Oakland. They think just because I’m from Oakland that I’m a killer who likes to hurt people for fun, which I all put in my box to show that we colored people get oppressed for no reason only for our color and living areas. Thanks for your art work. I look forward to seeing what you make next, because I want to see what else you can do besides creating a good piece of art. something that I want to see next time I check up on you is another piece of art that can make me say “wow”.

            • Dear Armando Gonzales,

              My name is Aisha Aden, and I am a student at San Jose University.

              I found your Shadow Box to be very insightful, and how although we do not know each other I can tell a lot about who you are just by looking at the contents inside your Shadow Box, what you wrote, and connect it together. I really like how you added the activities you do such as swimming, hiking, and biking riding, and how it ties into your Chosen Identity. My favorite part you wrote about was when you spoke of you Dominant Narrative and you said that they are on the outside and, “shows about peoples assumptions about us Mexican people.” For me this was my favorite because, although I am not Mexican I can relate since I am a minority too. People always assume what you are and take stereotypes to influence their thoughts about who you are. I agree that there can be a lot of struggles, but I would like to say that these are what make you stronger as you get older. I honestly appreciate that you are a very positive person, who has good thoughts and wants to overcome these struggles.

              Thank you
