Coincidently, it was the day after I read about the first Treasury Secretary in my US History textbook when I first stumbled upon the album that would dominate my thoughts and car ride jam sessions for the next year. In the begining, Hamilton: An American Musical confused me more than anything. Why would anyone write a musical about a dead 18th century politician? Also, why is George Washington rapping? By the time the first act ended in a culminating eruption of harmonies, my confusion melted away and had transformed into wonder.

While the nation drifted through the dog days, however, a group of terrorists was in the final stages of planning a series of attacks that would kill 3,000 people on September 11. Much of the federal government seemed to have been in a summer daze as well, missing the warning signs of what would become the deadliest act of terrorism on U.S. soil. While some in the intelligence community raised red flags, the White House had brushed off warnings of an impending attack and the CIA was failing to share information with the FBI about the terrorists ' travels.

In the coming years there would be violations of the Constitution by the coming president and after some small debate the Constitution was cleared of any bumps it had at the time. It was soon after that talk over the Bill of Rights emerged and it was even more shortly after when the Bill of Rights was not a talk, but an actual document which would include the famous Second Amendment. This amendment would go into full affect and it would cause more trouble than Framers probably ever imagined. It would be, then and now, misinterpreted and cause some troubles that some would say cost more than its worth.

Dr. Ben Carson had been under plagiarism allegations in the past, due to a book he originally published 2011 called “America the Beautiful” In this novel he took many sections of other authors work dating back to 2007, and failed to give any of them the proper recognition. I would use Dr. Carson’s work as an example of intentional plagiarism. “Salomon also solicited every able-bodied Jewish man to fight in Washington’s army. After the war, he organized the first American veterans’ organization, “The Jewish War Veterans,” which is still active today.” Dr. Carson addressed the situation, saying “I attempted to appropriately cite and acknowledge all sources in America the Beautiful, but inadvertently missed some.

Once the child recovered from the cowpox disease, Jenner then tried to infect the child with smallpox, but the young man proved to be immune. “It seemed that this attempt at vaccination had worked.

As rage filled me up I knew I had to do something to help the very people that had taught me my culture, not only was it the right thing it do, but instead it was what I had to do.
