    • I find it interesting that you moved all the way from Florida to a small town such as Okemos. I also like talking to my friends more than the actual learning part of school. I also agree with you that graffiti is an art form. When I was younger I had a babysitter who did a massive picture on the underside of a bridge near my house and I think it’s technically considered graffiti. It’s probably one of the best art pieces I’ve ever seen.

    • Hi Abbey,

      I admire your American value acronym, it makes the rest of your argument more organized and flow smoother. Overall, I agree with your argument about diversity greatly. America is definitely one of the most diverse countries in the world, if not the most. Using the Declaration of Independence as backup for your argument was very important. However, recent and past events in this country could counter the argument if all people are created equal — racially and religiously. I agree that Americans are informal also. I believe that it is a very essential American trait and value. Americans are even informal in the way they dress, almost everywhere they go. I really enjoyed reading your argument, it made me look at American values and beliefs to a much broader extent!
