    Hi Li, I really liked your essay. It gave me a new perspective on photography and how we view things. The idea that someone who is blind can give people a view of their world is really cool. How you talk about the idea of beauty and how maybe we don’t always see it is something I totally agree with, the world around us is beautiful, nature is beautiful.

    Audra commented on the post, Family and Freedom

    I agree with you that family is an important part of American values. Your statement of “. They make us believe we can be who we want to be and the freedom America offers enables us to pursue those dreams. ” is something that stood out to me, I think you’re right. One thing I would say is that a family is any group of people who love and care for…Read More

  • This is interesting Megan. I like how you talked about different topics and talked about consumerism. The things we buy are a big part of our lives and the Nike/Kaepernick ad is proof of that. I agree with you that i America we should be able to be who we are and stand for what we believe in. The Oprah quote was a good one.

    • Hi Audra! I love this post about what it means to be American to you. One line that especially hit me was, “If we could just unify the country by continuing to listen to opinions and have those difficult conversations while still being respectful of each other, then I believe we would have a more improved country for everyone.” I think what this comes down to is tolerance, which should be one of the most important values to every American. You listed a bunch of the issues our country faces, and without tolerance of differing opinions, nothing will get done. I read this article from the L.A. Times that I linked below about the issues of tolerance in America. I’d be curious to see what you have to say. Great work! http://www.latimes.com/opinion/op-ed/la-oe-dunkelman-tolerance-u-s–segregation-by-choi-20140906-story.html
