I was in 4rd grade and I have never been to Mexico before. My mother decided to take me there for about two weeks to visit my family there and my grandparents, but during that time I was still attending school so the teacher just gave me two weeks of school work to make up when I get back. I got home and my mother was already packing up, so I went to pack my stuff and picked out my favorite clothes to wear. Once I was done, I went to sleep, mother awakened me up at 3am to get ready to leave to the airport. After a very long wait in lines at the airport, we were finally boarded on the plane.
9/11 When 9/11 happened, I was almost two years old. Because I was so little, I don’t remember it at all. Almost every year, my teachers taught about 9/11, but they never really went into much detail. My knowledge prior to this assignment was that four planes were hijacked by terrorists, and three of the planes crashed into their destination.
On her first plane ride, she spent “10-minute on a joy ride in an open-cockpit biplane. She once said during her experience"( Beer). As soon as we left the ground I knew I had to fly, she later wrote in her memoir” (Beer). She didn’t know that later she would be one of the best aviators in the world! However, it wasn't until January 3, 1921, when Amelia “ began flying lessons with Neta Snook” (Family of Amelia Earhart).
For Jurgis and his family, it was more like the American nightmare. They are all immigrants who come to America, they are scammed by some scammers and all of their money is gone and this is just the start of the nightmare. The place where this family lives is in Packingtown, and it’s one of the worst cities to live in due to their bad conditions. The environment was horrible and it was just an
The "illegal" ideology has always been disgusting to me but, I didn’t really know how it was built. Nativists were powerful enough to start the "illegal" status towards Mexicans. It is humiliation to think America only let in a limited number of Mexican workers in the US. It was also ridiculously expensive to legally cross the border, which was not an option to Mexicans due to their economic fall, and all of the discrimination involving looking for a job. The border has always been seen as an evil place to go through because the way people were treated there; and still do to this day.
This past week I flew to Texas with my Mom so we could attend my Grammy’s funeral. It was a very difficult week but once I got down there my friend from kindergarten picked me up so I could get out of the house for a while. Even though I told him I was doing okay, he knew that I was really struggling. I was in such a better mood after spending some time with him that I couldn’t stop thanking him for understanding what I needed. Even though it was hard for me to know that my Grammy had passed away, someone told me that I needed to be excited for her.
It was July 15, 2012 my heart was pounding as fast as a racing car,as I slowly walked the steps of the enormous plane,I slowly thought of how different my life was gonna be, in new place i’ve never been to. I felt exited to meet this place but at same time I felt scared……how different was Latin America gonna be? “El Salvador”,my mom softly repeated the name of the place we where traveling to. After four hours of watching the white clouds,and the peaceful sky, we had finally arrived. As we stepped out of the Airport my eyes where rapidly attracted to all the Cultural things around me,I could feel how my lungs breathed in and out the smell of traditional food and fresh natural air.
Most of the people their in the camps were thinking about themselves and that’s not wrong. It 's normal to think about your needs at a tragic time like that, but soon it drive people to the point of risking other people 's lives to save their own. You should never try to kill or risk someone else 's life if they are healthy enough to live just to save your skin, because it shows how much humanity has been stripped from the hostages from this cataclysm. What is life to people? How precious is it to them?
Despite the drastic price increase. So, about 5 months later, I was headed to Boston. June 25th, I was dressed for success and ready to get on my first ever plane ride alone. After, an hour or so of lines and security, I was waiting and ready to board the plane.
On November 2, 2014 I and my family all took a vacation to Orlando Florida to go to Disney world. In the morning when we got to the airport in Dubuque, Iowa it was a long wait to get on the next flight. So we just waited. While we were waiting we played games and talked. When we got bored we all decided to walk to get some more breast fast because my sisters was still hungry and it was still early and not time for lunch.
The Dumas were given so much kindness and were accepted so quickly in those two short years that they were in America. They were highly thought of in their community that they didn’t want to go back to their homeland of Iran after their two-year were up. They didn’t know when they were going to come back, the girl even said so herself, “I didn’t know then that indeed be returning to America about two years later” (Dumas, 16).All that the girl knew was that everyone was upset that she was leaving.
Uptown Sinclair’s book The Jungle was originally written to expose the working conditions within the meat packing industry. Sinclair shocked millions as he bore what it was really like behind the scenes. Employees worked with contaminated and rotting meat, which was not a health violation at the time. This eventually led to new food and federal safety laws. Most of the labor force was an immigrant, who moved to the United States with hopes of the “American Dream.”
They 've just told us we need to evacuate for World War II. I have mixed feelings about hsving to leave home. It might be fun to able to go to a new place, but I will also miss home greatly. I have just packed up all of my belongings to go on the plane. At least where we go there will be no war and everything will be safe, but I 'll still think sbout home every day I 'm there.
