    • Hey Mariely your book sounds interesting to me because of the all the action in side the book. When I read your post, it made me think about all the people dying everyday. One thing I’m wondering is who died from the family?

      GOOD morning , still reading sonny blues . Today I’ve read more about James and sonny childhood and going back into memory lane , which seems to be connecting some dots on certain questions I have or at least to Lynch perspective.

      Hello good morning , still reading sonny blues . It’s getting more nostalgic as I read I’m reading about the whole family reunion and how they seem to be getting along after all , it can be rare as to not all families bounce back to being together as they seem to be .

      • I think of your earlier comment about this story being “bittersweet.” I agree that it is a good feeling to see the brothers come together, but there was so much lost over the years, and can that ever be regained?

        Today I chose to read “little things are big” by Jesus colon . It makes you think about the experience black people had to face and question within themselves. But the story ended up being short so I will pick another book

        • Dear Mareli, so far your book reminds me of when there were several fights of people of color where I lived before, it is very interesting and very tragic what happens to some people when they do not know what they are getting into ” the problem ”. It seems that it is fine if that book did not catch your attention but I would like to ask…

        • I like how you involved examples to mental illness’ and different ideas on what it can look like. By including these examples, you don’t just tell people about it but you also show them.

        • I really enjoyed reading your post. I like how you mentioned how society affects people with mental health issues as well as how we can help others who may be struggling to open up about their feelings. I think that mental health is a very overlooked topic for some people and especially with times like now, society is starting to realize how serious these issues can become. I really appreciate how you listed ways to help change one’s mindset, for example, the link to Can We Talk, and examples to help someone who may not understand this topic very well to at least get a sense of what someone might be going through. Best wishes!

        • I enjoyed your writing. Something that stood out to me was how you mentioned the role social media plays in mental health stigmas. I think you made extremely good points on how when others see social media it conveys inaccurate descriptions of mental health. Great job!

        • I really enjoyed how you touched on how many won’t speak up about their feelings because they don’t want to be viewed as weak. I do feel like there is a stigma around mental health and we need to break the stigma. I agree that many mental health topics/situations do go unseen because people don’t dedicate enough time to address them.

        • You did a really good job in your introduction describing how mental health problems can feel because I think a lot of people can connect with having felt that way. I also like how you tied empathy into it, showing that we do need empathy in our world to overcome the stigmatism on mental health.

        • I love how you you stated that people dont speak up because they look weak. I used to be like this and I’m so glad to know I’m not the only one who thought this. It’s a human thing to have feelings and to show them.

        • Mariely, I too think that women need to stand together to fight for issues that oppress us. We are often times viewed as inadequate and are not taken as seriously as men are in positions of power. Although throughout the last few decades or so the injustices women have faced seemed to have lowered, we are continuously patronized. I think you’d really enjoy this article https://nationswell.com/womens-equality-day/ I had a greta time reading your post, hope to read more from you. Thank you

        • Dear Mareily,
          I completely agree with this article, because texting and driving is very dangerous and is one of the leading causes of car accidents. It takes your eyes off of the wheel and can cause people to crash much easier. I agree that it needs to stop and that people should put their phones on do not disturb when they drive them help prevent this.

          Sincerely,
          Emily Malouf

          15 Facts About Texting And Driving

        • Mariely, I really like this post. I feel like texting and driving is one of the most dangerous things out there. No one can multitask, even if they think that they can. It is becoming a very life threatening thing that teens do just to respond to their friends. No text is worth dying over. I found a great website that can help you further your research. https://www.teendriversource.org/teen-crash-risks-prevention/distracted-driving/cell-phones This website shows the different ways we can refrain from our phones while driving such as texting someone back before you start to drive and check in with parents to show that you are safe when you get to a destination. Being safe is way better than being sorry.

        • Dear Mariely,
          I found your post very informative and interesting. It is a very relevant topic for people today and most kids can relate to this because they find themselves looking at their phones while driving more often than not. I agree that texting and driving causes most accidents and leads to death, which makes texting and driving of little importance compared to your life. Showing adds and billboards like these are helpful, but how can we say they are making change when we continue to hear of accident and deaths due to texting and driving. We need to find more productive and effective ways to stop texting and driving. Here’s an article that I found that I think will give more insight on this topic. https://www.teendriversource.org/teen-crash-risks-prevention/distracted-driving/cell-phones

        • Dear Mariley,
          I found your article very interesting and agree that texting and driving is a issue and people need to realize that it their phones are not as important as their safety . I think you may like this article from a children’s hospital in Philadelphia https://www.teendriversource.org/teen-crash-risks-prevention/distracted-driving/cell-phones .
          Sincerely, Timmy Jerome

        • Mareily, I agree with you on this topic and I realize that most people have no clue that when they are doing this that it has such a big impact on other people’s lives. At the bottom is a link that could help you out with this.

          Have a nice day,

        • Dear Mareily,
          I agree with everything you mentioned in this article. Texting and driving is very dangerous, especially at this day and age. The technological advancements are definitely positive but also lead to problem like these. Apple and big corporations should put a better feature rather than just do not disturb mode. This will prevent accidents related to distracted driving.
          Here is an article about the effects of cell phones and driving

        • Hey Mariely, the topic you chose is so very important in todays society. Technology has advanced so much in the past decade and it has honestly just become more of a distraction. Cars are now compatible with phones which is another distraction added to the list. My point is that no matter what you drive or how long you’ve driven you are always putting your life at big risks while texting and driving. Here is a link to a similar topic. https://www.edgarsnyder.com/car-accident/cause-of-accident/cell-phone/cell-phone-statistics.html
