I would take out those stores and bring in more popular ones that people are more interested in. Having these stores would bring in more people from surrounding areas, bringing in more money for our city. Alpena has wonderful scenery that brings in attraction. If we had more activities for people to do, it would bring even more attraction allowing more money for our city also. Adding stores or more attraction to Alpena would help to bring in more money to our city.
Immigrants, on the other hand, have experienced the lack of rights, and therefore value American freedoms greater. Our forefathers fought long ago for the freedoms that we have, while in other countries, their forefathers have just begun to fight. Citizens born in this country may value the freedoms that we once fought for on a traditional level, however, immigrants value these freedoms on a day-to-day basis, because of the loss, or lack, of rights they have experienced that American-born citizens have not. On July 4th, 1776, our forefathers declared independence from Britain, and the ongoing abuse that scarred the nation had ended. Annually, Americans celebrate

Gross gives us a good depiction of who these people were, and how they were not much different than us today. The people of concord were not eager to start a revolution, but they did what they thought was right. Scope: The time period that this book is written in is before, during, and after the Revolutionary War. The Revolutionary War was from 1775 to about 1783. Before anyone thought about fighting the British for what they believed to be right, Concord was just a common town with average people trying to make a living.
Many of them had just wanted to better the lives of their families and thought they could do so in America. It is sad they were met with hostility instead of acceptance and assistance. Their sacrifices did not go to waste as the various groups have come a long way in being accepted and ensuring a positive future for future
Neither group had many rights in the pre-Revolutionary era, but their situation kept improving after the Revolutionary war. Slavery was prohibited in the Northwest Ordinace of 1787 in the new Northwest territories (Faragher 222). This was one of the first shifts towards greater rights and the majority of Americans realizing that slavery was ethically wrong. Furthermore, the American Revolution provided a “growth of the free African American population”(Faragher 228). A bigger freed slave population showed slaves that they could receive better rights, and also caused less suspicion that blacks were escaped slaves.
America- the Land of the Free- gives us the chance to be free… something that other countries simply do not. The American Dream is the idea that each law-abiding citizen deserves equal opportunity in seeking success through perseverance and dedication. Initially, this "Dream" was only extended to white property owners, but today it applies to all Americans. Unlike other countries, your financial status at birth does not directly affect your social status as an adult. Some say that the old American Dream has died, but the idea of starting something from nothing is truly inspiring.
Imagine yourself today in our era, you see black and white peoples getting along, greeting each other, and not worrying about not be stereotype especially the blacks. This is what some people called “post- racial”, and some irrelevant people think were leaving in that magical place. But, actually……… WE DON’T. Just because, many racism problems were solved, doesn’t mean racism is entirely solve in America. Today, you can see that many discrimination towards African American peoples were not resolved because people realize, there was racism occurring in their society, but other societies might disagree.
