    • Lula, I think this is a really good topic to research. I didn’t know the true meaning of “jihad”, but simply took it with a negative connotation because that’s the status quo. By writing this research paper you are challenging that. I think that this is a very important topic to be delving into, especially with where politics is right now.

    • Immigrants are not here to harm the United States in anyway. They are here to actually benefit both themselves and this beautiful country.

    • Hi Lula,

      Thank you for sharing your story and point of view. I wish more people would take the time to understand people instead of just placing them into a false stereotype. So many Americans are not educated in what is happening in other countries or just don’t care. That is a sad fact. I hope you know that there are people out there that do want to help and are trying to understand your situation. As you know, what you’ve been through is not something most Americans can relate to, and i’ts sad to see such few people try to make an that effort. So often people think only of themselves. And I completely agree that many Americans take what they have for granted. I hope there will a shift in judgement towards refugees. I truly hope you find the freedom and opportunities that you came here for.

      -Emily

    Katelyn, I agree with you! I believe that our Fedral TaX Codes are incomprehensible to the common citizens. The government should announce when people should file taxes, and they should provide free aid for all

    • Lula, the same thought that April brought up about the manipulation of the rapists through claiming they are trying to cry for reform came to me. I think that your piece is relevant and interesting because it strays from the beaten path of reports on rape culture in the United States. Your sources were also a good addition. Great work!
