The AI support from Youth Voices is going to create the following. I copied and pasted my comment from the reading of “Long Division” by Kiese Laymon. I have provided the name of the section that was used, as well as a picture of the Dalle.
Theme One: The Power of Language
The speaker in the text emphasizes the power of language. In their comments, Destiny B states, “That was so snarky, I’m stealing that”. This quote illustrates how language can be used to express emotions and thoughts in a complex and creative manner. Language can be used to convey sarcasm, wit, and humor, which can be used to express frustration and anger in a situation. Moreover, Destiny B’s comment, “I don’t like this guy, sniffing farts was kind of funny though”, highlights how language can be used to express different levels of emotion and meaning. This quote emphasizes how language can be used as a tool to convey feelings that cannot be expressed in any other way.
Theme Two: The Impact of Abuse
The text also emphasizes the impact of verbal abuse in a person’s life. Destiny B’s comment, “Caught me off guard but it brings to my attention that we use this word in all different ways, sometimes it it can even be seen as demeaning someone out the 1st and second party”, emphasizes how words can be used to demean and belittle someone. This quote highlights how words can be weaponized and used to inflict psychological damage on another person. Moreover, Destiny B’s comment, “I think he was ranting and I did think that it was pretty funny as well. Even though he was defeating someones character. I sought as though he really felt this way. Which is harsh but it was him just expressing his built frustrations”, highlights how words can be used to express a person’s inner frustrations. This emphasizes how verbal abuse can be used to inflict psychological damage on another person and how the abuser can use language as a tool to express their anger and frustration.
Theme Three: The Strength of Resilience
The text also emphasizes the strength of resilience. Destiny B’s comments, “My grandmother says this a lot, it’s something that I think about constantly because bitterness does sometimes take over which is that can be taken away if the choice is made”, and “I love me some Aretha Franklin !!, Don Hathaway as well”, emphasize how individuals can find resilience in their lives despite the hardships they may face. Destiny B’s comments emphasize how the strength of music, family, and faith can help individuals find the strength to cope with difficult situations. This emphasizes how resilience can be a powerful tool to help individuals cope with difficult situations and find strength to move forward.
The text still leaves a mystery as to why the speaker is so angry and why they are using language to express their emotions in such a negative way. As I continue reading, I am looking forward to learning more about the speaker’s motivation and the story behind their anger.
