  • Dear Raven N Reed,

    Thank you for reading our work and leaving feedback we are very appreciative. When you said why we started with audience, I agree that starting with audience was a bit off-putting and it was an assignment, that’s how we were suppose to organize our work.

    We are writing to you, the mayor of Oakland, because you are a strong woman who cares about this city and the youth of Oakland. I believe that you can be the voice towards

    • Gregorio, Kassandra and Khalid –

      I’d like to start off by saying how much of a wonderful job you have done with presenting this upstander proposal. The topic that you’re addressing is definitely one that needs all the attention that it can get. I’m very glad to know that there are individual’s like yourselves that are voicing out their opinions about helping the Oakland youth in regard to drug abuse. Something that really shocked me is that you all mentioned that there is only one youth program that is supposed to address drug abuse, but in reality it doesn’t, which is upsetting. Which is why I mentioned earlier that I’m glad to know that you guy’s are voicing out your thoughts and opinions, especially to the city mayor. I am all for your guy’s plan of making an instagram account along with obtaining a charity that address’s the issue. Instagram accounts definitely bring awareness to the public, especially with hashtags that capture the reader’s attention. I have followed your instagram account and I am looking forward to seeing the progress of your guys’s plan.

      • Dear Alondra,

        Thank you for the support and follow! We appreciate you for following our instagram account. I agree that it is upsetting that there aren’t places youth can go to for help. It’s even more upsetting that the ‘program’ that should be helping youth with drug addictions just keep them as ‘slaves’ to beg for money, and smoke drugs. What’s even worse is that they went there to get help, not get high. We want and need to make a change. We look forward to your support! Thank you for taking the time to follow us and read this post.
        Sincerely,
        Kassandra

    • Dear Raven N Reed,

      Thank you for reading our work and leaving feedback we are very appreciative. When you said why we started with audience, I agree that starting with audience was a bit off-putting and it was an assignment, that’s how we were suppose to organize our work. Also, we used the two reviews of teens because those were the only reviews that showed up for the place so it’s all we had to work on.

      Thank you for reviewing our work, we are grateful.

      Also, we wouldn’t mind at all if you showed are work to your students. If you would like to check our the work of our other classmates please do. You can find it when searching for “upstander project” at the search bar and look for the ones posted in 2019 for my classmates work. There are also work from previous years with the same topic of being an upstander.

      Sincerely,

        • Dear Greg,

          I like how use evidence clearly to show how the Salvation Army help people with homelessness, drug/alcohol, and more! While you should have more analysis, you still did great in your essay by showing evidence, reasons, and having a great argument to argue. Also, you should explain more about why the Salvation Army is 100% Epic.

          “The sounds of glass shattering across the floor
          The bullets cutting the air
          Going through the walls”
          These words paint a very descriptive picture immersing me into the poem. It makes me feel like I am there experiencing this with you. Thank you for being so strong and sharing this personal story.

      • Dear Mario,
        I am interested about the cars that are in your shadow box because I have a lot of cars doing sideshows by my house. Also, I like that you added the cars instead of just putting a picture. One sentence that stands out to me is that you’re light skinned, born in the us, and parents born in mexico because it’s the same for me.
