Thank you Veterans Veterans do a lot for us by defending our country and our home. We thank them by having a full day dedicated to our veterans. Three reasons that I think veterans should be thanked for are; going out to defend our country when no ones else does, I also want to thank you for demonstrating a great work ethic and doing all of this work for people you don’t even know.

In conclusion Crevecoeur’s essay Letters from an American Farmer portrays his observation and appreciation of the hardworking countrymen that built what is known as America. Every example he chooses to argue shows his analyzation and understanding of the origin of the “land of bread.” Crevecoeur writes “ubi panis ibi patria” meaning place with bread to sum up his essay’s whole direction to convince readers to come and join the new land.

The respect was mutual between Truth and Lincoln, and their meeting changed Truth so that she will now strive even more to help achieve the nation that Lincoln envisioned. Truth continued to help the Abolitionist Movement in the time after this meeting.
Even though I am scared of what the future holds with my home life. I will still be scared of turning out like my mother.

She left her children for something that took over her life; left a great man for someone that made her hate herself, and chose to continue to live that way despite how many times her children have begged her to change.
