    • I truly agree with what you are saying, how are supposed to help these women that are being abused they don’t deserve that no matter how they are no one deserves to be abused.

    • Dear Michelle,

      I really enjoyed reading your post that connects your novel to the world today. Your use of paragraphs really strengthened my understanding of your claim. One sentence that really stood out to me was: “Everybody in 2017 is being separated. High class, low class. By your color, where you’re coming from.” It is scary to think about how much people are separated. At times we want to ignore this truth, but it is so very evident and is almost yelling at us today with our current president. I think in many ways people have always been treated differently because of ideological and institutional oppression and with our current president it is no longer an unsaid truth but out in the open for everyone to see and hear. I hope this helps wake people up instead of digs them in more, into their beliefs.

      To make this post even stronger think about who you are referring to when you say “you.” Remember to avoid this in academic writing and instead be more precise. Is the “you” children, citizens, americans, people, immigrants, humans?

      Thank you for your post and I look forward to reading more from you.

  • Dear Julissa,

  • Dear Kevin,

    I agree with you I feel like drugs can be helpful or it can also harm people. You have a lot of great ideas in but i feel like you can be a little more detailed other than that this was wonderful and interesting. I enjoyed reading this also you can talk more about the consequences.
