    • Julia,
      I enjoyed reading your post, and I agree with all of the points you made. I liked when you said, “Taking a break from our own lives and stepping into the life of another allows us to be transported into a situation that we may never be able to experience ourselves.” This was a great point that you made because I believe that this is applicable to all literature. I also appreciated how you made your post personal as you gave examples from your own life to reinforce your argument.

    • Julia,
      I really liked your post and I enjoyed reading about your thoughts on why reading is important. One point you made that stood out to me was that reading can reduce stress. This is very important because we often need an escape from the real world and reading, in my opinion, is the closest thing to that. It seems as if stress is everywhere we look and escaping through a good book relieves that stress and allows you to focus on something other than your daily to-do list. I also liked how you included personal examples in order to connect with the people reading your post.

    • Julia,
      I loved how you brought up multiple points about the benefits of reading and took time to expand on them. I think it is great how you mentioned that reading not only works with reducing stress, but that it can aid in your learning as well. Overall, awesome job! Your blog is very well written.

    • Julia, I like how you compared texting to speaking in person. It helps to add contrast between the two to help understand how much more personal verbal communication is. I liked your article a lot. I feel that it had great info and you provided plenty of real life examples that helps the reader get a sense of what you are discussing.

    • I really like how you ask questions within your post to get readers more involved. I agree with your reasons on why empathy is so important because it truly does affect everyone’s lives and how we interact with each other. Overall, you’re information is unique and very well said.

    • I enjoyed how you explained the views of COVID being a single sided story and then related it back to having empathy. I agree with only reading one news article, being a single sided story, because that site may only include their views, opinions and hope for the future without gaining a true knowledge of the topic by seeing every perspective regarding COVID-19.

    • I enjoyed how you explained the views of COVID being a single sided story and then related it back to having empathy. I agree with only reading one news article, being a single sided story, because that site may only include their views, opinions and hope for the future without gaining a true knowledge of the topic by seeing every perspective regarding COVID-19. Also i love how you explained “ Empathy is a key way to connect with the people around us because it shows them that we care about them and the situation that they are in”. That we do connect with people when we show empathy for people because not many people understand one another.

    • Dear Julia,

      I like how you show what people are doing during the corona virus, how it makes people feel

    • Dear, Julia

      I agree we need to learn about this virus and we need to discuss with people to learn more and talk about coronavirus and also I think we need to stop making this virus political because that why we can’t have an
      in-depth discussion about this virus because people start to argue.
