    • I think this is one of the biggest problems when dealing with immigration. Since Immigrants are hard pressed to contribute to a society since they cannot really interact their new society because of a color, language, or culture barrier. For Immigration to work we need to make Immigrants feel valued and offer programs where they can integrate into a new culture and society.

    • I agree with Sean. I feel like a lot of the problems with immigrants come from our own discriminations which in turn make them feel separated and unintegrated in our society. You’re a good writer!

    • I like this a lot and I think it has a very good message. Immigration is a very large topic today, and is hotly contended. But I believe that there are still good people out there that bring others that aren’t familiar with the area into their embrace. Something very important is to keep he foundation of what you believe, no matter where you go. I agree with you that everyone is entitled to their opinions and beliefs and should be able to express them.

    • I think this is an important piece. It is well written and makes great points. What I like about it is the analysis that you have brought into the point. Good job.

    • Hi Miguel.
      I was just writing a paper about God and why people leave their faith. I also think that people feel intimidated sometimes by God and don’t feel worthy enough. People can become overwhelmed with God and all faiths. I believe faith is meant to be a struggle but I also see how that boy wouldn’t be able to see God when his father was sick. However, I think through the struggles, the closer you are to your beliefs. Thanks for sharing!

    • Hi Miguel,

      This is an interesting topic that I would love to explore more. I currently am struggling with my faith. I am Catholic and many things have challenged my belief system. Within the church, I disagree with some of their teachings, specifically about the LGBTQ community, and rape culture. It is also hard to be apart of a group where leaders have assaulted children. Outside of the church, I also see great pain for many people. Its hard to understand why my God would let this happen.

  • Dear Jean,
    I am interested in your post because you make a good point that with more population comes more crime along with it. Also, I like how you mentioned that third world countries have a lot more violence
