Hi my name is Sierra Jenkins and I just wanted to say that the poem 'If a child', by Amanda Cater, is a great poem. It also have lines that are very true. Alot of people view children differently. Some may see a troubbled child and criticize him/her without knowing the cercumstances. Many children immitate what they see and hear, and if they are around it long enough they pretty much become their surrounding. Thats why it is up to us in society to be better people so that the kids growing up today can be better people, idividials, and parents than we are today. I just want to say to Amanda Keep Up The Good Work and I look foward to reading more of your poems.
