    • Dear Irvin,
      Incredible job on your poem! You’re poem is extremely touching and I honestly really enjoyed reading it. I think you did an outstanding job coming up with each line of your poem, it’s really clear that you tried really hard on this assignment. I really liked the line where you said, ” Love is like a tree it has deep roots and grows everyday”. I really like this line because it hit me because it was so accurate to my perspective on love like it keep getting stronger and grows similar to trees and I think you made a strong point!

      Thank you!

    • Irvin,
      This is a very powerful poem! It is clear that the words you wrote are words from your heart. I can relate to your poem because I have experienced much hate and much love in my life. One thing that i thought about a lot while reading your poem is how love and hate are so closely connected. I think you say that very confidently though it is a confusing thought. My favorite line of this poem is, “Violence can be solved if love more present.” I think this line needs to be shared among our nation. Thank you for that.

    Dear Oswaldo,

    I like your shadow box because you had a lot of stuff that you like and what has impacted you so far in your life and see that you really like cars. I also see that you have a soccer field and see that you like to play soccer and see that you have pictures of yourself and your dad. I enjoyed seeing your shadow box.

    • dear irvin,
      I really liked your box and the baby pictures and how you out them in to represent your childhood and i also really like the peso you put inside the box cuz i used to have a coin and they were are really heavy.

  • Dear Alex,

    I am inspired by your work of art your shadow box because you explain a lot about yourself and what you do. One thing that you said about yourself is that you like to play soccer a lot. Another thing I also heard you say was how you are mexican and say why you are happy to be that.

    • Dear Irvin,
      I like your box because it really shows who you identify yourself as. This is important because this is who you are and you clearly demonstrate that here. Also, i like how you put the red on the outside of your box.
