    This poem is about my passing uncle that I lost from gun violence. It was a very sad moment for me and my family. Till this day I cry for him it just hearts but no matter what I gotta keep my head up. So I hope

    • Dear Jocelyn,

      Thank you so much for sharing your poem, “HURT” on Youth Voices. The meaning behind the poem is super strong, and you did an excellent job with your writing. Your poem reminds me of the book/movie, “The Hate U Give” because the character Khalil gets killed even though he was completely innocent, just like your uncle. Thank you so much for publishing your work, and I look forward to reading your next piece.

    • Dear Jocelyn,
      I am impressed by your piece of writing “Jocelyn’s Shadow Box” because your words were powerful and you talked about a topic that is very important and sensitive sometimes. One sentence you wrote that stood out to me was “you have to be a woman of the house when in reality us women are able to many things as man.” I think this is a stereotype that many women face and stay silent about it but you were able to address this stereotype.

  • Dear Grady,

    I would like to say that your shadow box is amazing, because you put in a lot of detail.Another reason I really liked your shadow box is the fact that you put your friends and you said that they mean a lot to you and they make a big impact in your life.
