  • Hi Lauren,
    I really enjoyed reading your post! When you said, “Literacy and what we read is very important for our development, not just educationally but as people”, I agreed wholeheartedly with that. I never really thought about how much our parents influence how we see the world and the people and issues in it. Another thing that affects our…Read More

    • Hi Catherine!
      I strongly agree with your response regarding diversity in America, and continue to think that the diversity will get even better throughout the years. “Most Americans say having a population that is racially and ethnically mixed enhances U.S cultures,” said an article titled Americans See Advantages and Challenges in Country’s Growing Racial and Ethnic Diversity. This is very important because when it comes to the thoughts and beliefs of one person, the positive impacts that their opinions can have on another is crucial to coming together as one in America. I think your points about the 14th Amendment, and your arguments in your essay were very strong and you executed explaining your topic very well.
