    • Dear Kenya,

      I like your blog “Police Brutality Cause and Effect in Oakland”, because you talk about how police brutality impacts people and the community along with the effects police brutality has on the people and the community. One sentence that stood out to me is when you wrote “Oakland has been affected by this factor because police officers who protect the city and keep Americas laws intact end up breaking the laws and creating a serious reputation that makes police and Oakland seem as an unsafe place”. This stood out to me because I love how you talk about how and why Oakland has a bad reputation not being safe. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next. =)

    • Dear Brendan,
      I would like to thank you for commenting on my blog. It was great to read your comment and learn from your perspective on police brutality. What really stood out to me from your comment was when u stated, ¨How what you think your community can do to help end police brutality and what programs can you come up with to help bridge the gap between police and community”. Your comment helped me expand my thinking on how our communities can fight and stand against police brutality because it is indeed a problem that we need to address as humans. I also agree with you about how police brutality doesn’t only happen in Oakland which is also why I feel like we should take a stand and fight against brutality to prevent there being any more negative interactions between police and people. Hopefully i get to hear back from you again and your perspective on police brutality!
      Thank you!

    Dear Irvin,

    • Dear Kenya,
      Amazing poem you have! Community is a big topic because in those communities we have a thing called home. I liked how you used “A plague Plague of both houses?Nah a plague on the people who created this“Street Disturbance” this part is outstanding. Usually we think about problems breaking out because of two households but it’s not always like that. You were very detailed and each line made sense. Your description is so detailed and it explains what you will be talking in your poem and why you chose it so it wouldn’t be confusing. Good job!
      Sincerely,
      Imelda

    • My favorite part of your poem was ”I try to imagine that the sound
      Of shattering glass is diamonds
      But, in reality its glass windows”.
      And I also like how you instead of writing about love, (a topic that almost everyone wrote about) you wrote about violence. Also, your choice of words was great, you are an actual poet!!!Good job, I really like your poem, and I look forward to seeing what else you upload.

    • Dear, Kenya
      I like how you decided to write a poem about your community! A line that really stood out to me is when you said, “Me and my mom locked in the car. You know nothing new, another shooting”. That stood out to me because that was a way you decided to describe your community and it’s just like damn. Overall your poem was really good.
      Sincerely, Bryan Moreno

    Dear Christina,
    I really enjoyed seeing all the details and objects that you incorporated on your box. Your box clearly shows who you are as a person and what you like. I think that you did a very great job with all the colors and details on your box. God job on your project it was honestly really beautiful!
    Sincerely,
    Kenya Sanchez

  • Dear Marleni,
    I am very happy for you because your box came out very beautiful and detailed! Your box really stood out to me because its very colorful and its shows so much about you. For example the Salvadorian Flag that clearly shows a part of your culture and it extremely beautiful. Good Job on you shadow box!
    Thank you!
