    • This is a really interesting post. I haven’t heard of that poem until now, but it sounds really good. I like your interpretation of the author’s writing where you think the author is speaking to all of their readers. Based on what the author said I’d probably draw the same conclusion.

    • I Think why young people are dying is because their parents get them cars for their birthday gift and they go out with their friends and hangout and they go on their own path and next thing you know they get into a car crash.

    • I really like how you describe yourself in this little excerpt. I like that you give a lot of detail and insight to the reader of who you are. One thing I would say is to remember to capitalize after every period and know what words or letter should be capitalized. One thing I also think that could add to your writing it perhaps adding metaphors. For example, ” I’m so good at basketball that I feel like I could be the next…” Something like that would add a lot more to this. But, overall, you did a good job.
