    • Dear Maria,

      I am shocked by your post, “Defying the Odds in Afghanistan,” because it is evident to believe now that kids in Afghanistan don’t get the same privilege as others. I believe this because some Afghanistan kids are only able to go to school until they are 8 years old. They also do not have the technology and materials to expand their resources.

      One sentence that you wrote that stands out to me is, ” my life would be more difficult, both for me and my family because the job opportunity would be limited.”. You tried to put yourself in their situation and tried to be understanding of it. I liked how you put yourself and their shoes and was in their point of view. Overall, I also liked how you were completely honest and said that would you be struggling yourself in life in that situation.

      Thanks for your writing. I am looking forward to seeing more and how you try to understand their point of view. I would like for you to make more posts about you trying to comprehend and be understanding about other’s difficult situation.

    • Dear Mary:

      I am surprised by his publication, “The consequence of my mother being addicted?” Because it is a very interesting topic. We hear a lot about people who are irresponsible for such activities if you could say so. This usually happens very often.

      One phrase he wrote that stands out to me is: “Your children don’t even have the basics at home, like clean food and clothes, because the parents are under the substances they ingest.” I think this is sad because children do not have a good life and they do not have because they suffer.

      Thanks for writing. I hope to see what you write next, because I like this type of topic. Because these types of people do not deserve to have their children since they never take care of them. And I think they are not available to take care of their children.

      Samantha.

    • Dear maria,

      I liked much your post about “The Consequence that my mother is addicted?” because I know of many children who are in that situation, they walk the streets asking for money, there are even children who do not survive this problem with their parents.

      One sentence that caught my attention was “Many times their children do not have even the basics at home such as clean food and clothes, because the parents are under the substances they ingest” responding your question “Do you think addicted people need to seek help to get off drugs?” Parents must urgently seek help to solve their problem and care for their children.

      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because I want to know more about these problems.

    • Dear Maria,

      I am so interested by your post, “The Consequence of my mother being addicted?”, because it speaks what the daily lives of people that go through that on a daily basis. The environment of being around someone who is an addict can be so harmful in so many different ways that can affect minors.

      One phrase that had caught my interest was “Many times their children do not have even the basics at home such as clean food and clothes, because the parents are under the substances they ingest and many times these substances are illegal because people can die from an overdose”. This caught my attention because when parents get addicted to a certain substance, their children are the ones who are damaged as the responsibility of being a parent goes away.

      Thank you for writing. I would look forward to seeing what you write next, because I like your perspectives of those who live through this.

    • Dear Maria,

      I find your following post about “The consequences of my mother being addicted?” upsetting. I find this upsetting knowing that there are parents out there not taking full responsibility of their kids. Coming from a hispanic background, I would find it disheartening if my parents were like that.

      One phrase she wrote that catched my attention was, “children do not have even the basics at home such as clean food and clothes, because the parents are under the substances”. It is said to know that kids like that don’t even have the basics. Adding to this idea of not having your essential needs, imagine not having responsible parents you can go to for guidance, imagine not having food or clothes, it is just heartbreaking.

      Even though this post was upsetting to me, I am very interested in this topic and I would love to spread awareness out to families in need. Thank you for this writing, I would love to hear more from you.

    • Estimada Maria :

      Estoy asombrada por tu escritura sobre Él Circo De La Noche por que es raro que un circo no se pueda entrar en las mañanas, si no solo en las noches.

      Algo que escribiste que me llamó mucho la atención fue que en tu pueblo existiera una casa embrujada y que al entrar las personas quedarán loca, es muy interesante yo en mi pueblo no existe nada de esto y me gustaria experimentar algo haci.

      Gracias por tu escritura. Espero ver lo que escribes a continuación, por que me gustaría saber por que es que las personas de tu pueblo se quedan locas al entrar a la casa embrujada ??.

      Sofia.
