    • Dear Beatriz, I am really convinced about your topic and why violence happens. When you say that violence happens because people who do such a thing don’t have role models in life I very much agree with you, since they grew up with a bad role model they think it’s okay to follow their lead, which really it isn’t. Also, when you explain about Travon Godfrey I think that experience also has to do with why people commit violence because they want to see people suffer, since they lost a loved one to gun violence. I think overall you chose a good topic to speak about, and maybe it might motivate others to remind themselves violence is not the answer, it never is. I think you did a great job and keep up the great work.

      • Thank you so much for reading my blog. The part of your comment that stood out to me was when you said that the topic I chose would remind people that violence is never the answer for any problems they may have. A question I have for you is what are other opinions you have on gun violence. Look forward to hearing back!

    • Dear Beatriz,
      I was very excited to read your blog because Your poem was very interesting, and I really like your article because it talks about serious issues and it reminds me of your poem. I like how in your second paragraph you instantly talked about how violence can make people violent, because of their role models and how people be around it. I also like how you put someone’s real story into your blog that connected a real life experience to an important topic that you were writing about, made this article very interesting. I also like how you you put another persons point of view into your blog to make it sound more realistic. I really liked your blog and I hope I get to read another.

    • Dear Beatriz,

      One thing that I like about your poem is that you talked about sexism. I like the topic because it does connect to our society since people think men are better than women. But also sexism connects to Romeo and Juliet since there was many comments made about women needing to get married to a man. I really like how you said, “Their mouths are guns,Their words are bullets”. I loved this because it is true how words can hurt each other and that words are powerful.

      Sincerely, Kelly

    • Dear Beatriz,
      I honestly love your poem. It speaks out to people about what it’s trying to say, and how it is unjust. I also like how you talked about other things that had differences, then you went straight to the point about what are differences and how one gender is more privileged than the other. I like how yo usaid, “ The war/ fights these two genders have is the words and actions. Their mouths are guns and their words are bullets that hurt each other.” This stood out to me because there is a lot of arguing between the two genders and sometimes we don’t even try to hurt each other. I really like your poem and hope that you continue these to prove a point.

    • dear beatriz I like your shadow box and it shows how u are really into catholicism and how your religious and have pride in yourself sincerely,anthony

    • Dear Beatriz,

      I love your shadow box I like what you added inside it. I also love your shadow box because of the bay pictures you put in it (you were so cute!!). One part of your shadow box that stands out to me is when you said that people assume that you are not strong because of your gender. This stood out to me because that is very true in society today, they think that women are weak and can’t do the same things as men. Another part that I liked from your shadow box was were you put the jesus object because religion is also a very important part of my life. Your shadow box connects to me because people also assume I am Mexican jus because I speak spanish. Thanks for your shadow box. I look forward to seeing what you do next because I know you will add some great ideas.

    • Dear Beatriz,
      It is great that you are not conforming to what society expects of you! As a Latin woman myself, I can completely relate to the fact that we are seen as less than simply because of where we come from and the sex we are born with. Being only in high school and already having a strong definition of who you are is already a step in the right direction for your future goals. Wish you the best!

    • Hello Beatriz,

      My name is Jessica and I am a SJSU student. I wanted to let you know that I really like your shadow box! I really like how you were very creative on your shadow box and how you put quotes, your religious beliefs, culture, ethnicity, and pictures of yourself. I also really like how you explained that society always look down on us because we are female. I just think that it is unfair because if we are male or female we are all equal because we are all human. I can connect with you because I am a Latina female myself and I am religious too. Overall I found your shadow box very interesting, powerful and creative! Keep it up and continue succeeding because you can do it and don’t let anyone put you down just because you’re female!!!
