    Dear Juan,

    I liked how you talked about your name and you talked about what it ment in Mexico and that you talked about how your nickname had a positive and negative meaning to it. That your name connects back to your dad and how you dont know why your dad picked your name.

    • Dear Fernando,

      I am grateful by your blog “ Families Affected by Gangs” because you can explain what happens to families in gangs and what they've been through. You give really good pieces of evidence and seem to know the right people to interview about this. A sentence that stood out to me was when u said “When losing a young one, what happens is stress and trauma. Also, that kid probably has not finished school yet and lost their lives”. This stood out to me because it's true and young youths do go through this. And it's really sad how they feel that way and then they gotta worry bout other personal stuff so they are left stressed out. Thanks for your writing.

    • Dear Fernando,

      Im grateful for your blog because you talk about real things that are happening like how young kids can be recruited into gangs and it effects families by seeing there young son growing up by joining these gangs. I also like how you wrote about peer pressuring and that a real thing that happens to kids everywhere not just in gangs that effects kids to do things that they don’t want to which may lead to things that get kids hurt. These lines stood out to me because thoughts are the things that happen the most through out oakland.

    • This blog is strong because It clearly explains to the author how young kids are badly affected by gangs.

    • I am intrested in your topic about families affected by gangs.
