“The Sponsors of literacy” by Deborah Brandt could be easily related to Malcolm’s story except for the fact that he didn’t have your average literary sponsor. Malcolm’s story closely follows Dora Lopez’s in their quest for self-education. They both realized the struggle of being illiterate and not being able to communicate their thoughts.

Equality: Peace or Prison Imagine a society where each person is taught to be exactly the same. The stories of both Anthem and Harrison Begeron are very similar in their Dystopian Society.

We as a whole are a potent word, we have the facility to do anything as long as we endeavor and believe we have the potential to. As long as we endeavor to be prosperous or endeavor to get an education, then it’s okay to fail as long as we get back up. Another quote is from Michael Jordan and it verbally expresses, “I can accept failure, everyone fails at something, But I can’t accept not trying”.

As it appears to many, a graduation ceremony is supposed to be a special moment in your life, a day you shall recollect.

I personally found this essay enlightening. The reason for that is because I myself am at fault of being like the people that Tan speaks about. Because there have been times that I have been unable to understand certain people because of their accents. That I would almost completely ignore the parents and speak through their children to have an understanding of what they needed assistance with. After reading this my eyes were opened to how that affects them, and that I need to be more patient with listening to others and putting more effort into understanding
We have proven we can overcome great challenges before, and I know we will again. This is our future, to make the America we all believe in. We will continue the dream of safety and strength, of freedom and prosperity and create a world that each and every one of us can live in. I hope that we can all come to see this one day, that despite its flaws, despite its mistakes, despite some of its people, our country is a beautiful place.
