McCubbin agreed in "Graffiti Is Art and a Thrill ... Not Just Vandalism", If art is put out in the open illegally, the thrill of going against the authorities in a creative and expressive way is amazing (McCubbin, Ashley). Art is about expressing thoughts into a story on a blank canvas. Graffiti is fun and expressive, therefore it should be appreciated as art. Graffiti can be extremely exciting, especially since the artist is left unknown to the public.
The only reason other people do not see it as art is because it is on public or private it property which makes it illegal and vandalism. If these people were doing these things on canvases people would applaud them and tell the how good they are doing and how wonderful their art is, but because the first thing they think of when they hear the word graffiti is dirty they think poorly of it.

That summer my cousins and I saved up money and bought a pool. It was the highlight of our summer we would stay up all night to go midnight swimming. Then lay out sun bathing all day, and listen to all the songs we thought made us cool kids, and gave us meaning. This song was one of those cheesy pop songs all teenage girls listen to believing that they are a “Heart breaker” and at the time we thought it was the best song ever made.

Homecoming I almost completed my 12th. Yeah almost because I wasn’t confident enough that I would pass my math exam, which I fortunately did pass. So a day before returning home I had this house party at my friends place, which was exclusively thrown for me as a farewell.

Besides Felix being in this story, I really like the way you’re approaching this story. Nathanael 's alter ego makes me laugh because I always imagined him to be a smartass if he ever became a hero. And I’m glad someone has finally wrote him like that. As for Nino, I don’t know how I feel about him yet.
Cass Sunstein explains in his article, “How Facebook Makes Us Dumber”, the tendency of facebook users to seek out information that confirms what they already believe. He explains the “vicious spiral” that occurs when a homogenous community of facebook users share articles that don’t necessarily have any factual truth. The article confirms whatever bias the community holds, and thus strengthening the belief. Readers of these articles don’t feel the need to fact check or seek out any contradictions of the article because they agree with the article’s content, and because every article that is shared within the community features the same opinion, it becomes as if opposition doesn’t even exist.

"Jeff Bidelman was asked to help look for items of value in a Windber, Pennsylvania home that had been left unoccupied for twenty years. The children of the couple that lived there had heard rumors that a hole in one of the home’s walls was filled with money resulting from their parents occasionally throwing money into it, but they thought the rumor was nothing more than an urban legend. However, within minutes of looking around the premises, Bidelman and one of the couple’s daughters found a whole pile of coins, which they put into a plastic bag. Extremely happy with what they found, they thought, "Could the legend be true. Are we really lucky to have such intelligent parents."
He didn’t need to be violent to get his point across. He could get the job done by being peaceful. Malcolm X’s assassination was unjust because he was helping those that were around him by ending racism. Every time Malcolm spoke to the public he was one step closer to accomplishing his dream. He was one step closer to freeing African American from the chains of racism.
