If I had to summarize the lesson I learned from my hometown, it would be that being unapologetically myself is never a bad thing. The world that grew me and shaped me was none other than the Hudson Valley. Moving away from the Hudson Valley (or the h.v. as most of my friends and I call our home) made me realize that there is no other place in the world like it. Growing up here, I was exposed to a plethora of cultures, ethnicities, religions and lifestyles, and I was always encouraged to follow my interests and do what makes me happy.
Actions that are morally right but go against status quo are notoriously difficult for many politicians to take. Several of today’s politicians are not brave enough to risk alienating their voters. Calvin Coolidge, in contrast, was courageous, and this value was cultivated from an early age. Whether it was dealing with his mother’s passing when he was only twelve years old, or his sister’s death when in high school, Coolidge had to overcome these difficult situations. He had to stick to his goals of becoming a lawyer and a politician.
Overall I believe I am in some ways like my coworker. We are alike in that we love and embrace our cultural background but are not solely defined by it. Our faith, family, and education take top precedence in our lives. However we differ in our cultural upbringing, and some values. She is free flowing, keeping her values all her own not feel the need to pass it on because of her upbringing and cultural surroundings.
Through Chaucer we can see that he was educated, but yet part of the lower class because he didn't have any clothes on his back. As a decision to become a knight, William through Chaucer, made him come up with a line of unknown ancestors to be able to participate in the tournament. Even though none of this was true, he was taking risks of becoming a knight and even changed his name to Sir Ulrich von Lichtenstein because William wasn't from a royal status. Throughout the places they traveled and the new things they saw , we are able to capture an image of how society was divided and formed through the lower and higher status. The lower status were beggars and lived in rundown places, like his father's house, it was a little house with no furniture or appliances and his little house had a leak in the ceiling.
Current day, it has little relevancy since it was originally included to address also issues that do not exist anymore, including not trusting the decision to be made by the American people. When originally founded, they wanted to ensure the President was decided by electors who had the knowledge to make what they felt was informed decisions. Now, many people feel as though too much power is given to the electoral votes, and that their vote does not mean as much as someone in a different state. As it stands, many feel that small states are largely misrepresented and given too much power since the votes are not divided equally among the population. In fact, if the Electoral College system was not in the Constitution, it would undoubtedly be removed due to it being unconstitutional, because using the electoral votes violates the principle of one-person, one-vote.
Don Fabrizio is conflicted. He wants his family to maintain their lifestyle and continue the Salina name, but he does not want to change. His situation and resistance to change is seen when he rejects the role of senator. He explains, “I belong to an unfortunate generation, swung between the old world and the new, and I find myself ill at ease in both.”(––) He knows that he would not be fit for the role, and he instead recommends they ask Don Calogero, Angelica’s father, to become senator. He says, “he has more than what you call prestige, he has power.” Don Fabrizio
In politics, the population could perceive that a president will live up to their expectations, as they promised, but in reality, little is accomplished. To Kill a Mockingbird shows us that experiences and relationships have the power to change perceptions in ways we may not have ever
In other areas of law we recognize the differences between children and adults. Children are not permitted the same rights and responsibilities as adults (e.g. voting, smoking, joining the military) because we recognize their inability to make adult decisions. Why don't we recognize the same difference in the criminal law? We don't say, "This is a very important election, so let's let the kids vote".
Argumentative Writing Undocumented immigrants are getting deported and they can’t have an experience they wanted to have when they came to america. But, because of the us government they can’t have this experience some get this experience but they still have to be very careful. They all also fear because some of them have kids then they fear for themselves and then there kids because it’s their family. Do you want to live in a community where you see mexican and people on the streets because of crossing the border. This is why i think that the government shouldn’t deport undocumented immigrants because then they don't get a chance to have an american experience.
Atticus had told Scout that,“‘The main one is, if I didn’t I couldn’t hold up my head in town, I couldn’t represent this country in the legislature, I couldn’t even tell you or Jem not to do something again’”(Lee 100). Unlike most people in this time period, Atticus can see through the black and white all the way to justice;he believes that anyone and everyone should be entitled to having a fair trial. Atticus knew it was not going to be easy, but as he told Scout here that even if he did not try, he would not be able to hold his head up in Maycomb. This next character that values respect and has shown it in a few different chapters is Calpurnia. Calpurnia is an African American woman who is the Finch’s mother figure.
Hi Simeon, The Bills of Rights was put into place to protect the rights of the people (Patterson, 2013). Without the Bill of Rights there would be much chaos in America. Do you think we are slowly losing our rights? Are not our rights to worship being placed into question? I think that the Bills of Rights was a great move of our forefahers, I don 't think they could foresee the complexity it would soon bring.
Term Limitation of Congress In America, it is a constant debate whether members of congress should be term-limited. Many people believe that the current members of congress have been in their position for too long and are subject to prejudices and old ideas. Although, the terms of house and senate should not be limited due to the fact that, the power to change a representative is in our hands as well as we, as a country, do not need a congress with little experience. A lot of people believe that getting a congressman they do not like voted out is a myth. This is because in the past as well as now, the majority of some districts do not pay enough attention to know that someone does not deserve their position.
In recent discussions of illegal immigrants, a controversial issue has been whether to boot them out or let them stay in our country. On the one hand, some argue that we should allow them to come into our country because they believe we have the resources. On the other hand, however, others argue that we should not allow them to come into our country. My own view is if the immigrants learn our culture and how we do things in this country, and if the immigrants learn how to speak English and put some effort into making a new life and getting a job I don 't see what the problem
TAmerica 's promise is to keep your rights and let you achieve what you want in life if it 's reasonable. America 's promise is the main thing that migrants look up to when they come over. They come searching liberty and a better life promised by the USA. “We The People” as stated in the Declaration of Independence have many rights given to us by living in the United States. Human aspiration is the base of america 's promise, to its people we expect to be able to achieve even if we can obtain everything we expect to be able to atleast try and have a chance to.
Danielle Aldrett Friday only Founding Brothers Assignment Preface: Critics: Defenders: Its focus on giving the people so much power, means that the government may be more vulnerable to being overthrown and just not dependable. Does not focus on strong central nor local government, but on giving the people a voice in their country. They’d have issues developing a system of parties and would have people questioning the systems too much. Avoids the issue of having a monarchy or exaggeratedly powerful ruler, in which they have no say on the laws. The constitution did not take into consideration that the states were barely reuniting and were not known for working together or even being together.
