The strategic programs have increased minority representation and have enabled the Army to reflect American society. These programs combined with emphasis on broadening assignments as integral element of leader development has allowed the Army to benefit from two positive results of diversity (Erbe, 2014).

MLK’s message being about peace, unity, fairness and freedom for and to all people shines through in this speech. The effects of MLK’s dreams are still relevant today in America, as well as his hope and vision for the United States and its citizens. “And that is something that I must say to my
Like most things that are society based, religion has evolved alongside our own culture. America is a melting pot of different ethnic backgrounds and cultures making it a perfect place for religion to adapt and flourish. For this analysis, I am drawing from “Civil Religion in America” by Robert N. Bellah (1967) on his ideas of American civil religion. In the text Bellah (1967) argues that civil religion is an important dimension that needs to be recognized in sociology. While Bellah focuses specifically on the United States of America, he still gives a valuable perspective on civil religion and how it plays a part in religion as a whole.

These tariff acts have lead America to where it standings today with the foreign trade agreement and have even helped our country shape stronger and more reliable relationships and alliances with other countries. For example, as of November 5th 2015, the Trans-Pacific Partnership, which is made up of the twelve countries that include; Brunei, Chile, New Zealand, Singapore, Australia, Canada, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, Peru, United States, and Vietnam, has come to a conclusion and contracted an agreement that is to be followed by each of the countries.

For some children, this holiday is filled with folktales of Santa Claus, his elves, and the reindeers that guide them, but for my family we were taught right from birth about the son of God, Jesus Christ, and the sum of the sacrifices he has endured for us. Most of these teaching were from various CCD classes, weekly church visits, and family stories. A second part of this tradition is to attend midnight mass to show respect for the birth of baby Jesus. These teaching are the largest part of my heritage, and I will continue these practices to a family of my own one
"Many Cherokees today go to church just as any other person does. I, personally, went to both the dances and churches while I was growing up", said Kathy Van Buskirk who is a Cherokee from Oklahoma (Buskirk).
