  • Dear Maria,
    Thank you for taking time to read my description and looking at my shadow box. It was also cool to know someone new that also likes the bridge. For the first question, I made the bridge in one day and I did it myself. Thanks again for reading it and for asking questions.

    Dear Erika,
    Thank you for replying back to me. It was so nice of you to read my post and tell me what you liked about it. For the questions that you asked I believe that violence if it weren’t to stop know it can get worse in the future. In my opinion I think if the community were to get together it would probably spread awareness but it wouldn’t…Read More

  • Dear, Alex

    I am showing interest on your blog because it really caught my attention how you you believe that gentrification causes people to move out and not be able to afford a place to live. A sentence you wrote that stood out to me was “ People might start to work more hours to make their paycheck a bit higher. Maybe 1 job at night and one i…Read More

    • Dear Joana,
      I like what you wrote in your blog you put in so much detail on how Oakland changed with the people you interviewed and the research you also did. One sentence that stands out for me is “Oakland is really dangerous especially in certain places more than others. You can’t just roam around the streets and be sure no harm will be done. Everytime I would see and hear police cars passing by due to violence”(Flores). I agree with this person because something similar happens around my community is like an everyday life. You would hear police cars pass by and you already have an idea that its do to violence. As I read your blog Do you think that violence would make any changes in the future? Or Do you think if the community gathers together they can make changes to violence in the future?

      Sincerely,
      Erika
