    • You did a great job breaking down his philosophy and the message he was trying to show.

    • Hi Ronaysi,
      I like that you talked about Childish Gambino’s music video and how it connects to violence in America. I have also watched the music video and really like how he showed how all these horrible things are happening in our world yet the media tries to make everyone ignore it and not see it. Here’s a link to an article by rolling stone talking about how Donald Glover is bringing light to a conversation people want to ignore. (https://www.rollingstone.com/music/music-news/donald-glovers-this-is-america-is-a-nightmare-we-cant-afford-to-look-away-from-630177/). I really liked this article and i hope to read more articles by you.

    • I liked when you said “people don’t pay attention to things that are happening in society they try to be blind and pretend like nothing happens.” I feel like that was one of the main messages in the music video. I think that people need to be more aware of other’s problems instead of just their own.

  • I’m Ronaysi Gomez. I’m 19 years old and I was born on april 10,1999. Something important about me is that I don’t like talking about myself to others; I’d rather listen. I was born in the Dominican Republi

    • Ronaysi, thank you for sharing your story. I know it is often difficult to talk about yourself, but you did a fantastic job. I find it difficult to speak or even write about myself as well. It is uplifting to hear you came to the US for a better future and I hope you found one. It sounds as if you are well prepared for your future with a chosen career and a backup plan. Good luck and keep up the good work!

    • Dear Ronaysi: I’m very impressed with your writing piece, which is called “I’d Rather Listen.” Because I’ve been through the same changes we have to make to be able to get used to a new place and a new life. One sentence that I relate to was “I was born in the Dominican Republic but I came to the united states with my father and my lil brother” because I came to the United States being the little one in my family out of my 2 sisters and my only brother. Another sentence that I relate to is “One of the reasons that I came to the United States was for a better future, because in the Dominican Republic, the schools are O.K.” because one of the important reasons I came to this country was to go far in life and get prepared for a better future, which in my country is hard to do. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because your story is very similar of how was my life as soon as I came to a new place and started a new beginning.

  • Dear Regan
    I am happy to read this post because it made think about my brother when he was in a regular school and how the school and teachers didn’t understand that he have problems understanding the material that the teacher was giving him. Something that I noticed in schools is that they don’t accommodate kids that have especial needs.

    • This a really interesting piece of writing. Your ideas are really interesting, and your empathy shines through your writing. I have interacted with people that have disabilities at my school, and I always try to be as kind as possible. Your writing will allow me to have greater empathy for these people.

    • Your post was very touching. I grew up with a cousin who had autism, and it was hard at times. But once I learned to accept her as she was, everything changed. Your understanding and caring for your brother and those you tutor were evident in your writing. Your strong connection will allow others to understand the importance of understanding and accepting people different from ourselves.
