    • Dear Brayan,

      I really enjoyed your post and the connection it made between your novel and 2017. I think your claim is really clear and your picture supports your claim that force plays a very large role in the book. However, towards the end of your post I became very confused because your sentence continued on for ever. It is also very important to capitalize correctly and read over your all the time so that the power of your point is communicated to your audience.

      Can’t wait to read what you publish next.

    Dear cara, I’m glad you agree with me because sports stop you from doing a lot of things mostly drugs because if you do drugs your system gets messed up Thank you

  • Dear hector,

    I’m surprised with your post “Does drugs affect your body” I agree with everything your saying that drugs affect the human body. The reason why I think this is true because people may use their prescription in another way and use drugs and take advantage of it. A sentence that really stood out to me was ” These and other illicit…Read More

    Why do people think drugs is the way out? Does it cool them down? Does it relax them? Does it cause them to forget? But, when they continue using they can become addicted and then this causes more problems.

    • I and many other people may be pissed at your claim saying that drugs are bad because drugs are good

    • Dear Brayan,
      I am unsure with your post, “Oakland: Drugs,” because Cannabis is medication for sick patients, cannabis doesn’t affect people in a bad way. Cannabis is actually better than prescribed pills because pills have a lot of ingredients and cannabis is natural.
      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “The story shows how marijuana helps with your pain but it also can get you addicted to it like they guy that got prescription for it. ” I think this is right because if you consume something a lot you might get addicted to.
      Another sentence that I admired was “I had one friend that was in a wheelchair since he was born and they gave him prescription to getting marijuana to help with his pain but he took advantage of it and its addicted to it he can’t stay a day without smoking weed.” This stood out for me because one of my adult friends also got a prescription to marijuana and his addicted because he consumed it so much that his body needs it.
      Your post reminds me of something that happened to my friend. One time he had a strong headache which it was migraines and he asked his doctor for a prescription to marijuana because he doesn’t trust prescribed pills since they don’t tell you the ingredients.Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because I enjoyed reading about your topic. Im also looking forward to read your next post because you gave great information that I was visualizing it. DONT DO DRUGS THEY DONT GET YOU NOWHERE.

      Sincerely,
      Miguel

    • Hi, Brayan:

      I agree with you that sports are better than the drugs for human. However, there are still a lot of people needs drugs to help their survival, such your interviewee’s friend, who is too sick to exercise.
      We all know the drugs are not good for our health and we would be easily addicted to them. However, there are many students taste drugs for seeking stimulation, and many adults have drugs for releasing pressure. They all have excuse for their addiction to drugs maybe because they are not smart enough to avoid the drugs.
      The lucky thing is that you write down this topic to tell everyone that be smart to away the drugs. If we want a healthy and meaningful future, we should use sports to cheer us up, but not the drugs to push us down.

    • Dear Brayan,

      I completely agree with you that drugs are not the answer to a person’s problems. Not only can it be addicting but it can cause severe health problems to a person. I also agree that sports are a good way to keep yourself busy. When you are participating in a sports team, you are always busy doing something positive. I feel that teens and adults turn to drugs when they are bored and have nothing better else to do.

      I also agree with you that talking to a friend can help alleviate the urge a person may get when they are faced with this dilemma. Friends and family are always a good source for support.

      Sincerely,
      -Adrian
