That quote is, “No one stays how they are.” This quote stands out to me because I have changed over the years I was a little kid to now. I think it means everyone changes with age personality wise and your body. When I first moved to Naples in the 3rd grade I thought I could never adjust to Naples School, and my thoughts were bad about it for about one year.

This was a difficult time to be a minority both socially and economically. This, along with the fact that my grandfather was an immigrant from Cape Verde and spoke little English, made it very hard for my mother’s family to thrive economically. My mom often tells me of her experiences growing up in the projects: getting very little for Christmas and not eating lunch on weekends simply because they did not have enough money.

In Obama’s case, the journalists had been facing an uphill battle with these rumors, specifically because he is a black man. The challenge wasn’t in proving he was a born-citizen, but rather it was getting people to like Obama all over again. Furthermore, these reporters could have done a better job with disputing the birth certificate rumors by emphasizing the fact that Donald Trump had started them.
