The story of her conversion to Christianity and her extraordinary holiness was an inspiration to me when I was searching for saints. She was the first Native American Saint in the United States of America and Canada. When she was four, she contracted smallpox which left her face disfigured, impairing her eyesight, and depriving her of her parents.

During the past two decades, I’ve distantly witnessed, via multi-media, numerous acts of massacres on school campuses alone (elementary, high school and college) that resulted in lost lives and immense trauma for all involved. I’m sitting here trying to visualize what it may have been like for all the KS students, facility, and towns people, as well as, the members of the national guard during the weekend of May 1-4, 1970.

The speaker’s shift in tone is related to the radical climax the speaker has with the woodchucks in her garden.

In the article “Race in America: ‘We would like to Believe we are Over the Problem,”’ which was published on America, Maryann Cusimano Love argues that the racial inequity issues still persist today in the United States. She triggers her topic by responding to Delegate Hargrove’s arguments that “not a soul today had anything to do with slavery” and “it is counterproductive to dwell on the past.” She thinks Hargrove’s suggestions are defective because racial issues are still exist in the modern society, which people must be responsible for.

She first makes it clear that the inequality in health care causes many African-American died in the United States.
