This photograph was taken by Yves, a rising junior at Jones College Prep, as he was waiting for the Blue Line. He calls it "The One Point Train." Here is what Yves had to say about it:
"I was waiting for the next Blue Line train. When you look closer at this picture, there is one vanshing point. Not only that, there are about six points that all connect towards the center point (focal point) from the train on the right side, to the lightbulbs at the top of the page."
Words of wisdom by Cayla, a rising seventh-grader at Carter G. Woodson who sometimes writes as Ladii Giggles and as I'm Completely Confused. We like her straightforward writing style and how she distills her thoughts down to a few well-selected words:
"sometimes you're happy sometimes you're sad or maybe even glad
sometimes you wanna fight people sometimes you argue but guess what that's a part of life everyone you meet you're not going to get along with everyone is unique in their own special way
the things you see outside sometimes may make you want to follow the people you see but you're the author of your own life and all your writing is in pen
be careful of what you say and do because every little thing counts
don't always take everything as offense although some things might hurt you have to learn to ignore"
