    • Dear Omar :
      I am amazed by your pos, “Sport Injuries in Minors,” because I am interested as an athlete myself. I wondered how many worried about it like me and it was interesting to read.
      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “As people who practice a lot, it is important to know the risks involved and how to preclude injuries. ” I think this is cool because it connected readers who want to learn. I also think it’s cool to spread awareness.
      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because the ideas you have are great. You also provided me, an athlete, with great knowledge.
      Zach R.

    • Athletes are always getting injured.Injuries in practice are important because they are 62% in youth.There is a graph shown in the article that shows that a lot of youth that play sports get injured.They argued that males are more likely to get injured.These injuries are very important and should be taken seriously.

    Thank you so much for reading my blog. The part of your comment that stood out to me was “Thank you Baby Omar for writing this”. A question I have for you is, How did my blog interest you? I look forward to hearing back!

  • Dear Yamilex, I think your post was interesting because you gave two points of views in the essay. A line that stood out to me was, “Sideshows are both good and bad, but they are mostly good because they started in Oakland in the early 90’s and they are still alive and happening.” I agree with your point because sideshows can be both negative a…Read More

    Dear Efraim, I agree with your post, “Oakland Education Crisis” because teachers in Oakland should get payed more for the job they do. One line that stood out to me was, “The increase in class sizes and not enough staff makes it difficult for students to get the right education.” I agree with this statement because if there is more students in one…Read More

  • Omar commented on the post, Truth about me

    One sentence you wrote that stands out to me is, “I feel like being Mexican is the best thing about my life that’s why I’m so proud to be Mexican.” This sentence stood out to me because I am also proud of being Mexican. Many people think that being mexican is weakness but its actually a strength.

    • Dear Omar

      Im a student at San Jose State University and wanted to mention how mazing your shadow looks and represents your life. I really liked how you put the type of money where you are from to show pride where you are from. Showing pictures of yourself is a great way to show who you and show others how you look and the type of person you are and great that you mentioned your family as well. I really enjoyed reading your description and telling us the kind of person you are and how you displayed it on your shadow box.

    • Hi Omar,
      I’m a student from San Jose State University. I liked reading about your shadow box and I think you did a great job describing the differences in the identities you have taken on. I completely agree that not one identity solely defines who we are. There is much more to us than what others may see, and it is great that you are able to recognize this. I can tell you put a lot of thought into your project by including things that were really important to you such as the Oakland tree and pictures of your family. It was also nice to read about how much you embrace your culture and the pride you take in being raised in Oakland. Great job!
