                  One of my favorite lines from your blog is when you wrote, “This proves how much Trump doesn’t care about humans, but Only the “rich and wealthy” humans because he thinks that those with privilege are people who don’t do anything dangerous”. I like this part because I really agree with what you said, Trump is being racist and classist when he says immigrants are dangerous just because of their class and race. Anybody can be dangerous and commit crimes. Overall your blog is really strong and shows the negative effects of family separation.

                  Sincerely, Kelly

                • Dear Lauren D,
                  Thank you for taking your time off and reading my blog, it means a lot to me. I like how you were able to agree with me on this topic, and you’re completely right it’s very important. You asked me,”What do you think are some ways we can combat our immigration problem?”. Well in my opinion I think that for right now there would be no solution to fight back because obviously our president Trump has more power than us. But maybe if we do marches and certain things like that, it can bring awareness because there has been some powerful movements before that made changes. But I’m also curious do you know any ways we can combat this problem?
                  sincerely, Tania

                • Dear tania,
                  Thank you so much for sharing your poem with me. One line that stood out to me was “when you meet that someone, when your heart skips a beat” I think that this is true in the play Romeo and Juliet. In the play Romeo seeing Juliet changed Romeo. Thank you for sharing your poem with me and I look forward to your next poem!

                • Dear Tania,

                  I think you did a great job on your poem about Romeo and Juliet and about love. I love how you repeated the phrase, “Love doesn’t have a meaning, But it does have emotions”. I like this because you can’t describe love in just a couple of words, love is powerful and complicated. I also like how you described how the feeling of love feels like and how you used similes to describe it. A suggestion I have is try to incorporate more literary devices, like personification and Onomonopoeia. Using those devices would make your poem stronger and would make it more interesting. Overall I love your poem because it describes love well and connects to Romeo and Juliet.

                  Sincerely, Kelly

                • Dear Tania
                  Your poem really shows what love is to some people. I like your poem because it relates to Romeo and JUliet because they couldn’t be together because their families didn’t get along, and your poem shows how they were feeling. I like how your poem had me questioning at the end. I like how you ended your poem by saying “Love doesn’t have a meaning, but it does have emotions” this confused me at the beginning but started to make sense because you’re saying that love has no meaning but it has emotions because you get and emotion every time you see that person that you really love.

                • Dear Tania,
                  Reading your poem about love was very interesting because I could really see the connection to Romeo and Juliet. The part where you said that sometimes some people can’t be together because of their parents is true since not everyone has the freedom to love whoever they want. My favorite line from your poem was “Love doesn’t have a meaning But it does have emotions”. The reason why it was my favorite was because for everyone love may be different for them based on their experiences. Thank you so much for sharing your poem and I look forward to reading more of your work on here.
                  Sincerely,
                  Beatriz

                • Dear Tania,
                  I am delighted by your shadow box because I can see that you put so much effort in making it looking nice with details. One part of your shadow box that stands out to me is the mexican money because you are showing an item of where you are from to represent one of your identities.I also liked how you included pictures of you and your family in your shadow box to show who you are as a person. Thank you for your shadowbox/art and I look forward to seeing what you create next time because your work is very interesting.
                  Sincerely,
                  Beatriz

                • Dear Tania,

                  Your shadow box is really beautiful. I like how you incorporated many pictures and objects to express your counter narratives. One sentence that you wrote that stood out to me was, “On the outside I had also put red paper to represent how society thinks we are part of a gang” That sentence stood out to me because it is good to break down those stereotypes that people have on Hispanics. Another sentence that stood out to me was, “Also, the images show that I am female and strong and independent.” You as a young latina female it is very important to keep in mind that you can overcome all the bad things you may go through. Overall, you did really good work!

                  • Thank you so much for looking over my box. The part of your comment that stood out to me was that as a young female it’s important to know that I can overcome things I think every young female should realize that because people say they can’t achieve anything but the truth is we can.

                • Hello Tania, your shadow box is very well put together and it looks very nice. You really had me thinking when you said, “Furthermore, as you can see on the outside it shows a Mexican flag and a mini border to show the oppression from Trump, that he wants to build a border to stop us from coming to the U.S.” I think this is very relevant to what is going on in our country right now. I appreciate that you represent who you are. I also like how you said you are a female that is strong and independent. Empowering yourself as a women is very important and I think you showed this very well in you shadowbox. Good job on this.

                • Dear Tania,
                  I really enjoyed reading your shadow box post. I loved the details you put on it, and how you made sure that each element showed a part of your identity — no matter if it was an identity that people created of you, or if its an identity that you hold for yourself. I like that you recognize your strength and independence, and also the current issues that are occurring in this world regarding racism and hatred. I am glad that our generation is growing up to be much more open minded.
