    • I really enjoyed reading your story, and I also agree that immigration is extremely important. I am really glad that you see America as a place of opportunity and safety because the country was built on ideals of freedom and equality. I feel like in recent times, partly due to the current government, the country is not being as friendly to immigrants, however, your story is really good to hear and I hope that your story will be able to inspire people in America to be more open to accepting everyone, regardless of what country they come from.

    • Hi dust, I really liked your poem. I liked your poem because you described the people and the culture from which you came from in just a 4 stanza poem. I really liked the line “I am from sacrifice Life for country” because it shows how passionate you are about the country that you were born in.

    • Dust, I enjoyed your poem mostly because it was short and concise, yet interesting and informational. Your passion and love for your country shows through in each line and I loved the little facts like “morning tea” that accompany it. The passion most strongly shines through with the strong openings of “I am”. This phrase shows that you identify with Bangladesh; that you are one with Bangladesh. I look forward to reading more poems of yours, keep it up!
