• Eli,
    I really liked your post! I thought that you used the different quotes from different texts very well. It made it more interesting to read. I also really liked how you connected the “I Have A Dream” Speech and the Emancipation Proclamation in your second paragraph since both texts relate to slavery and equality. In today’s world, I think…[Read more]

  • Rebecca,
    Thank you so much for your post! I find it very interesting how the American Dream has changed throughout the years. I like how you used different documents from different times to show this. It’s interesting how so many people have their own version of the American Dream, yet they still try and define it as one topic. Despite its many…[Read more]

  • Thank you Sovann!
    I appreciate how you brought the present into focus even more. Freedom and Equality are huge topics today and many still need to fight for their rights. Thank you so much for your comment!

  • Heather,
    I really liked your post! I think that you bring up an interesting point of whether America really has achieved equality. Some of the evidence you used about women in the workforce suggests that America really has come a long way. However, in my opinion I still believe we have work to do.

America gives people the power to peacefully protest their freedom and equality.

  • Lindsay,
    This is definitely an interesting post. Though I know a few people who are twins, I never really thought of the role they play in the changing family structure. However, I do see how having a twin could affect this, and how it could affect your personality. In your post, you mention how some twins grow up to be more introverted people,…[Read more]

  • Dear Amran, Thank you so much for your post! I totally agree with you with the fact that racism is a big problem in the United States today. The events of Charlottesville clearly displayed the tensions and hatred between the two groups, and showed how much of a problem this is in our country. Even though this is a sensitive issue, I think it’s v…[Read more]
