Hi again Laya!
You’re so welcome for helping you reach your goal of stardom. You truly deserve it with the intricate and complex analysis you wrote on the novel. It’s very considerate of you to not want to spoil the book. Hope you have a marvelous weekend.
I really enjoyed reading your post. That book seems really interesting, and I’d love to read it sometime. I thought that you did a really good job connecting the book to the essential question. I think you brought up interesting points about morals and loyalty to your family as well. From your writing, I am assuming that Lake chose to…Read More
In the memoir Americanized by Sara Saedi, she talks about the fact that she struggled with identity as an immigrant child from Iran growing up in America. She explains how she was torn between assimilating with2 Comments
I strictly agree with your post, “Prejudice towards immigrant children is dangerous to their mental health”, because it really exhibits the reality of the struggles American immigrants go through. I agree that it is difficult to find your balance in between your own culture and the American culture and how it makes you struggle with your identity. One sentence you wrote that stands out to me is “I wish that more American citizens who might not be as familiar with the immigrant experience would be more open to sitting down and talking to immigrants, refugees, and asylees in their communities.” This sentence stood out to me because those who discriminate against other cultures or races discriminate because they are ignorant in the stories of immigrants.
Thank you for this writing. I look forward to what your next writing is, I am impressed with your knowledge of those who’ve immigrated and their issues when immigrating. I would like you to continue to mention the struggles of immigrants to inform those who aren’t familiar with how immigration occurs.

Hi Baoyang! I thought your post was really interesting. Some people think that the most important part of the American Dream is being successful and rich, so you don’t really hear much about freedom and equality relating to the American Dream. I liked how you used founding documents in order to back up your claim. It shows that this country…Read More
Religious freedom is an American value. Believing in who you want, how you want, if you want, and when you want is something that Americans take to heart. The First Amendment protects freedom of religion, r2 Comments
Dear Sloane, I agree with your claim about personal beliefs being separated from the government because it would have a lot of influence on how laws are made and just things around that. The overall message of your post was to the point and I clearly understood what you were trying to say. Yes, Americans have the freedom religion, press, speech, etc. but, there should be a certain limit as to where it is applied regarding the government and our daily lives.
I am very curious and interested in your post, “Religious Freedom in America” because I agree that religion should not be brought into government. Many people come from different religious groups and if it’s involved in government that will create a problem because not many agree with each other.
One sentence you wrote that stood out to me is, “In fact, people with religious beliefs that were around long before the Christian faith, such as Hinduism, Judaism, and Buddhism are being forced to participate in religious holiday breaks from schools and/or places of employment even though the day holds no meaning or significance to them.” I think this is because America involved religion in our lives and people that don’t go against a certain religion have to follow it. And I think this is not fair because people should have their own choices.
Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because your post-show tends to show your side and other people’s sides that many people don’t know about. Which I really like because I wanna be more educated.

Religious Freedom in America
- October 16, 2019
I appreciate and can relate with your article. As the children of immigrant parents, I have often had to deal with balancing assimilation into American culture with preservation of my original culture. Your suggestion to overcome this dilemma by refusing to act on prejudice is one I support, encourage, and agree to act on as well.
