Open your eyesAnd see the California WildfiresThat took over 100 people and 20,000 buildingsWhere people are still recovering Open your eyesThe Parkland shooter that killed 17 studentsAnd lead to 23 school
Thank you so much for sharing your poetry. A line that stood out to me was “Some deny me as if I was a stranger looking for shelter” because it really shows how someone can feel when they can’t express themselves.
I really liked your poem it shows how your freedom can be taken away by a religion or what someone believes in.
This is a youth-powered social network that was started in 2003 by a group of teachers from local sites of the National Writing Project.
We merged several earlier blogging projects. We have found that there are many advantages to bringing students together in one site that lives beyond any particular class. It's easier for individual students to read and write about their own passions, to connect with other students, comment on each other's work, and create multimedia posts for each other. Further, it's been exciting for us to pool our knowledge about curriculum, connected learning, and digital literacies.
If being part of such a community makes sense to you, we invite you to join us. We welcome all youth and any teacher interested in having students publish online and participate in the give and take of a social network like Youth Voices.
