  • Dear Veronica,

    I am happy that you read and agree with my post about police brutality. I agree when you said “If people like us continue to take these deaths seriously than there is still hope for change.” because it is true if we bring more awareness than we can create a change.

    • Hi Krisya,

      I enjoyed reading your post. I liked your title of the post. It’s a powerful saying to not only stand up but to wake up as well and be aware of this issue. I agree that police brutality is a big issue in America. There are many more cases of these events occurring. I agree that people need to be more aware about these situations and step up to help.

      I also like how you included interviews from different people and how you listed out the keywords in each person’s interview. I also like this part in your post: “People should be more active and awake in their community.” A lot of times people aren’t aware of their surroundings and issues going on in their world around them. I think it’s important that people are aware of issues, such as police brutality, that are going on in the world and take action to help and stand up.

      I enjoy reading your post, Krisya! Your post was really detailed and help brought more awareness to the issue! You did a great job!

    • Hello Krisya,

      I really enjoyed reading this. I also feel that people in Western culture are becoming desensitized due to the many deaths that have been covered. Moreover, I also believe that these deaths should be protested in order to show these impacted communities that these police behaviors will not be tolerated. Unfortunately, as you mentioned, institutions have not been holdinf these police officers accountable. However, if people like us continue to take these deaths seriously than there still is hope for change. Continue to care and think critically because there should be more people who should the same!

In our class we watched a video of Michelle Obama’s last speech and she mentions how children our the future. She talks about how we will be the ones to create a better society in the future. Have you seen her last speech?
