  • Dear Monica, I found your post “Saving Butterflies” very intriguing because I feel like they’re animals nobody really pays much attention to. I think that butterflies are very delicate creatures that we should take more care of.

    One sentence that stood out to me was, “I think we need to focus more on animals because they are a part of the…Read More

  • Yarelli commented on the post, Aren't We All The Same

    Dear Jayden,
    I sympathize with your poem, “Aren’t We All The Same” because I have seen how different our people are treated or looked upon within my community based on the color of their skin. You’d think that because you live in a community where everyone is Latino you wouldn’t seen discrimination or racist remarks being said to one another but…Read More

    • Dear Yarelli,

      I am surprised by your post, “Tensions Rising between Russia and Ukraine,” because it is surprising how after Russia tries to have a relationship with Ukraine they still want to attack them. It’s also surprising how there were some deaths and how Russia sent 100,000 troops to the border.

      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “I think that whatever happens from now on between Ukraine and Russia will also have some kind of effect on the U.S. given the fact that Biden has already stated and made it clear that the White House is prepared to retaliate in some form one way or another.” I think this is important because who knows how this could end up due to these countries acting against each other.

      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I liked how you were able to give out this information. I would like to continue learning more about this topic and how things will end up.

    One sentence that you wrote that stood out to me is, “A reminder as sand grates your skin” because I felt like I could feel the touch of sand. I think it’s…Read More
