  • Dear Owen,

    I am very amazed by your blog post, “The United States of America: a Nation of Opportunities”, because I really love how you didn’t just portray America as a perfect country with no flaws. You were able to balance the good with the bad in the way that you showed that although America is a free and equal country that has all of the o…Read More

    • Autumn, I really enjoyed reading your poem as it really conveyed you as a person through all of your personal interests and aspirations. I especially liked the line where you said “I am from warmth and comfort
      and understanding”, as it conveyed perhaps your emotions to other around you. This style of formatting your poem was really beautiful and I look forward to seeing what you put out in the future. Thank you for sharing.

    • Autumn, I really enjoyed reading this. It was a cool and creative look into your personal family life and I love the way you formatted it. Being in a home of love is something so beautiful and warm and your poem really conveyed how it feels. Thank you for this piece, looking forwards to hearing more from you.

    • Autumn-
      I loved how specific and unique this poem was. I can hear the familiarity in your voice, and it is rather comforting. A couple of months ago, I did a “Where I’m From” poem, and I loved writing it. While it was very simple it allowed me to reflect on myself and those around me. Keep up the good work, and I look forward to seeing more pieces from you!

    • Autumn, wonderful poem. The strong relationship you have with your family and love you share radiates from your writing and it is heartwarming. When I was little, my sister and I used to use 7up and funfetti mix to bake cake and I had forgotten about it until now. Thank you for reminding me and for your poetry!

    • Autumn,
      Your poem is beautiful. I enjoyed how you wrote about the many aspects that shaped you into the person you are, from playgrounds to 7-Up to achieving your dreams. Throughout life, one is influenced by so much, even the small things like macaroni and cheese, and I liked how you mentioned these as well. Everything, big and small, contributed to you being from a “home of love,” which I really loved reading. Great work!

    Dear Dyane,

    I am intrigued by your poem because I feel like you told your truth and I could feel your passion and emotion in every word you wrote.

    One thing you said that stands out for me is “A family where my mom not only played mother but father, A great role model.” I think this is interesting because I can relate to it in so many ways, my…Read More
