Feeling Invisible Image Statement
It would be to say that I feel invisible. Instead I feel painfully visible and entirely ignored. (Feeling Invisible).
This statement expresses that someone feels like they are entirely ignored. It is a person's thought and they feel very strong about their opinion. The statement gives the message that no one cares about them and that the person is completely ignored, which is the same as being invisible.
The Circuit By Francisco Jiménez
Panchito feels visible because he gets to attend school and meet Mr.Lema who helps Panchito during the lunch break. In the text it states that Panchito got off the bus while his little brothers and sisters were yelling and screaming that they were moving again. (Francisco Jiménez).
This event made Panchito feel miserable. Panchito felt the best he ever did when Mr.Lema wanted to help him during his lunch break. In the text it explains that Mr.Lema would help Panchito with English and teach him how to play some instruments that he enjoyed during his lunch break. These actions of Mr. Lema made Panchito feel the best he ever felt. Panchito was starting to feel visible and when his family needed to move again he knew he would return to being invisible. This explains how The Circuit relates to invisibility.

She would rather keep a life of invisibility. This is how Things Not Seen shows invisibility.
