    • Dear joseph

      I am surprise by your article because the number keeps growing and how is hard for people that are single parents.

      One sentences you wrote that stand out for me is that the number of single parents keeps increasing more and more and i think this a good piece of evidences bc it shows how it keeps increasing.This is shocking to me because I really don’t know how it feel to have single parent.

      A question I have is why did you write about this do you know somebody that deals with this.

      Thanks for your article and explain how single parents sometimes struggle and for the graph that shows how it keeps increasing.

    • Dear Joseph,

      I find this blog to be amazing and very informative. I believe that this is one of the best blogs i have ever read in my life. I like how you interviewed people with personal experience to make this blog better. I also like how you gave reasons of how it can affect positively and negatively.keep up the great work.

      Sincerely, your buddy diego rivera

    Dear Diego,
    What an elaborate poem. It’s almost deceiving how each line is so short yet the over all poem has a very deep message behind it. And it’s very impressive to me that you were able to convey such a deep message with such few lines and words. I don’t think I could ever do something like that. I also appreciate the bits of humor in your…[Read more]

  • This poem is related to the play Romeo and Juliet. The poem focuses on the theme of hate and conflict. The focus is to tell a story of how both hate and conflict causes irreversible repercussions. I hope you enjoy

    • Dear Joseph,
      Thank you so much for sharing your poetry. A line that stood out to me was “Those between the bullet and the target, I mean, they didn’t do nothing wrong, what do they get?” because I agree. Why would someone want to kill innocent people, or even kill at all?
      Something I connected to in your poem was how you seem to be writing against unnecessary violence.
      Your poem also reminded me of the school shootings in Sandy Hook and Parkland.
      Thank you so much for writing and I look forward to reading your next post.

    • Dear Joseph,
      Your poem was too real. I really like how you thought about it a lot and wrote down a bunch of your ideas, especially the questions. I also find it interesting that you associated hate to gun violence. War and conflict has caused too many casualties. My favorite line was “Apparently the strength of hate is unconditional” because it reminded me of how much hate has spread everywhere. Do you think this world will ever become less hateful and change for the better? Thank you for sharing. Your poem was genuinely interesting.

    • Dear Joseph,

      I am intrigued by your poem because you made your poem rhyme and that made it really interesting and fun to read. One sentence you wrote that stands out to me is “Apparently the strength of hate is unconditional, Yet whenever I see the word it’s only two dimensional”. This stood out to me because I feel like its true but also it caught my attention because it rhymed. Thank you for writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next.

  • Dear Wendy,
    Thank you for your valuable feedback. I’m happy that you appreciated the setup of my shadow box, since I was very proud of the way I organised it. I find it interesting that we shared similar ideas for our shadow box. Knowing this I’m intrigued to see your shadow box. I’m sure it’s amazing. Thank you for your thoughts,

  • Hello Diego,
    I love how your shadow box came out. When I saw you working on it and adding pictures to your box, I knew it would come out great. Your shadow box is definitely the funniest one I’ve seen and that really reflects how you are as a person because you always make jokes and are funny. And that’s the main aspect I like about your shadow…[Read more]

    Hello Roberto,
    Im very impressed by your shadow box. I like the picture of the flag showing your nationality and how much room it takes up showing how important it is to you. I don’t know if that was intentional or not but either way I like it. Keep up the hard work.

    My Shadow Box Artist Statement

     

    My Shadow box is separated by two main things. The outside of my shadow box represent dominant narratives and stereotypes about my identities and the inside

    • Joseph, I hope all is well and hope things are getting better. All you can is push through and just succeed. You will always have people wishing for you to fail, but instead of reacting negatively, just block them out and continue to be the person that you want to be.

    • Dear Joseph,
      Your shadow box is really nice and I can clearly see what demonstrates you and who you are as a person. I really like that you added the gun, marijuana, and danger sign because you really did a good job showing your dominant narratives. After your dominant narratives I really love the way you box flips around and shows your counter narratives and who you truly are. Something that stood out to me was the pictures of family because I did that with my shadow box too. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you post next, because your post so far show a lot of effort and it’s inspiring that we have somewhat same ideas.
      Thanks,
      Wendy Perez Govea

  • Hello Anthony,

    I’m very impressed by your shadow box. While scrolling through all the shadow boxes yours really stood. I liked that your shadow box had a very clear focus on one of your main identities which is being interested in cars. I especially like your inclusion of the red model car in your shadow box because it really emphasizes your i…[Read more]
