"The Circuit" By Francisco Jimenez
- “The thought of having to move to Fresno and knowing what was in store for me there brought tears to my eyes.” (Jimenez 66-67) This shows that no one cared what he thought and he didn't have a voice in a way as in he couldn't control his life.
- He made a friend while he was in the 6th grade and then had to leave so suddenly just to get food and money. This shows the hardships that he had to endure in order to survive his life.

"Homeless Children" By Newsela staff
- "Child homelessness is at an all-time high, according to a new report. 1 in 30 children are homeless - a total of 2.5 million around the country." (Newsela 1) These children are alone in the world with no one to care or help them. People may walk past them and not even notice that they are there, none the less try to help them. These kids need a guiding hand to lead them through life. They need proper medical care and good education. If they recieve this think how joyful they will become. Help them out with whatever you can, don't walk past a homeless person and try not to notice them. Take action and do what you think is the correct thing to do.

Things Not Seen By Andrew Clements
- “The girl pushes her chair back, and one of the black plastic wheels rides right onto the big toe on my left foot.” (Clements 24). This shows that he is still there but he is unable to be seen by the human eye and is invisible.
