    • Hey Jack,
      I like that you started off by talking about how America is a very diverse country, and that even if diversity could be a good thing it can still have a negative impact on the country. In your last paragraph the connection you make to individual’s values and to the diversity of America and meeting in the middle really makes me think can someone accept another person’s values or are we all so different that maybe that’s another reason why diversity is not always a good thing?
