    • Dear Joshua:

      I am excited by your post, “My immigrant Story,” because you went through a lot just to have a better life. I think you are very very strong for going through all that. Not having food or living on the streets makes you stronger because look now you have more things and help other people. I love how you say you help people on the streets because you already went through that and you don’t want them to be there in the streets too.

      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “I saw some poor people in these communities and I helped the poor people by giving them some money. I don’t want anyone to live like I lived.” I think this is great because you help people who need it. It’s good that you’re so generous and kind because that makes you stronger as a person.

      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because I like this type of history. They make me very touching. They make you reason a lot.

    • Dear Joshua, Your post was touching. I feel your pain of struggling. I never felt the pain of hurt that much but I heard you. I also have starved before. I know that pain. This is a heart touching story and i know this will always be a reminder to keep your head up.

            • Dear Joshua,

              I really like how u express your point of view in this writing.

              I like u put urself in the place of the ferry as if the ferry was writing.

              I like that u took the picture in the night that makes the photo deeper.
