    • Dear Wilbert:
      His letter “Screen Time” impressed me, because it gives teens a lot of information that makes us think that if we use our phones too much or if we are in front of a computer for too long it can harm our eyes. We need to reduce the time we use our phones.
      One phrase he wrote that catches my eye is “The more teens spend in front of an electronic device, especially at night, the longer the delay in releasing melatonin, making sleeping challenging …” I think This is surprising because teens do use their phone at night and do not know that it is the night when they can hurt their eyes.
      Thanks for writing. I look forward to seeing what you write below, because I would like to see what you write about the teen to see what kind of information you can provide us.

      • Dear Ronny,
        I agree with your post because they should stop this at some point. Also, I agree with his “Gun violence is a different way than violent crime instead of physical attack they shoot because they have a weapon they can use” because they need a gun to kill someone and that’s how most people die and these type of situations. hank yo for…Read More

        • Dear Wilbert, I think this is a interesting topic that you picked. I can see that the Murder Dubs are very dangerous to people that arrive their.I can also see that people have closed down a lot of businesses because of drug dealing and people getting killed. I think the murder dubs should should lay down on killing people. I’m surprised that taco sinaloa isn’t closed because of all that dangerous stuff happening in the murder dubs. I feel like your blog is very good the things you typed connect to your topic and are very strong piece of evidence. Thank you for letting the public know how important the Murder Dubs are to you.

        • Dear Wilbert,
          Your post is very informative. People like me, who live across the city from the “The Twomps.”, probably didn’t know about “the closing of multiple liquor stores because of murder and drug dealing.” Of course, this is an awful problem that I wish would be fixed, but I want to know the reason why you think this is a problem that happens more in the 20s than any other place in Oakland. Also, you explain that there are “famous residents” in the 20s. Why do you think that people from these streets rise up through music? The dictionary describes The Roaring 20s as “a time when many people defied Prohibition, indulged in new styles of dancing and dressing, and rejected many traditional moral standards.” Do you believe that the cultural history beneath theses streets is was causes many rappers to ascend? Thank you for writing this, it was very interesting to learn more about this part of Oakland.

        • Dear Wilbert, I think your post was amazing because you explained why the murder dubs are the best streets in oakland because of there history. A line that stood out to me “How 10 Oakland Neighborhoods Got Their Names it shows where the streets got their nickname. It comments “once known as “The Rolling ’20s” or “The Roaring ’20s,” but locals today frequently call it “The Twomps.” That line stood out to me because I only knew them as dubs but know I know that they can also be called “ The Rolling 20’s or The Roaring 20’s.Thanks for writing and keep it up with the good work express yourself as a dubs kid.

            • Dear Wilbert Reyes,

              My name is Aisha Aden, and I am a student at San Jose State University.

              Wow! Your post was really powerful and inspirational. I liked how you want to honor your ancestors, and how you want to honor the values and success of many centuries. When you said, “I want to honor the power of being proudly Mexican” I thought that was a powerful statement. I know that these days are very hard on immigrants and being the daughter of one I find that I do struggle with not only being Somali, but similar to you I grew up in East San Diego and back then it was known to be a bad area, but my family and I pulled through. I find what you said about being proud Mexican and proud immigrant to be beautifully written. I want to say please always be proud, and never let personal opinions put you down. It said a lot when you proved to those who racially profile latino people, that here a latino person is telling you the truth, one should take it the way it is, that you are Mexican and American, and proud.

              Thank you
