I am impressed with your article “Professional Soccer In Oakland”. One sentence you wrote that stood out for me was, “Oakland should have a professional soccer team because it would inspire Oakland kids.” I think this is interesting because by the time the Raiders and Warriors leave Oakland in 2019, the city should make a newer,…[Read more]
I agree with you that the violence in the bay area doesn’t only affect the person committing the crime but it also affects the person being hurt by the crime. One of the examples you wrote about that stood out to me was about the situation with Oscar Grant at the Bart station. This example really interested me and made me agree with you more because it really showed how the violence has lead to deaths and how people’s lives can change completely around because of all this violence happening in the Bay Area. Your writing on violence stood out to me because although you focused on more about the violence in Oakland it is important to know that violence is not only happening in the Bay area it is happening all around the world and it is important that everyone does something to help the amount of violence happening to decrease. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because you really get into the topics you write about and you pick really interesting and real topics.
This article is great! You added some great, strong, and powerful words! Good job! This post makes me think that everyone are not good or bad people, but I am. And I agree, you will never know what a truly good person looks like. So keep up the good work! I love this article.

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.
