By choosing to write about Francis Scott Key, it is my goals to understand his life and dive more deeply into what he may have inspired him the night that he composed the anthem that almost all Americans have come to respect.This book was fairly easy to find, I was able to find it using the green county library online catalogs.

Fortunately the author of this book

Most people who change their name are in search of a new identity. My grandpa changed his name from the unique name of Yervant, to a strong yet common name of Edward. He strived to fit in with the upper class of America and fit in less with his Armenian past. Similarly, James Gatz changed his name to Jay Gatsby in order to separate himself from his past. When I looked back at my grandpa 's story and compared it to Gatsby I realized that they were very similar.
These actions were all done mostly before Caesar had taken politics into his consideration, as he was still a young man. However, as seen, Caesar was still greatly impacted by these men and their actions (Marius and Sulla).

The author perceives that Arabs live in cities and cause noise, making westerners feel self-doubting, uncertain and apprehensive.
During this weeks lesson one thing that struck me was how “Under God” in the Pledge of Allegiance was added. I thought the “Under God’ had always been apart of the Pledge of Allegiance. I’ve had a lot of “aha” moments while reading our lessons. Growing up my dad has always shared his political views with me and most of the time I wasn’t able to fully understand his reasoning’s for his opinions. Throughout this class a lot of what he’s shared with me I understand better now and why he feels that way, especially about the topic of communism.
The use of names has gone back as far as we can remember in human history. People have given their kids names and have also named everything else that exists around them. From simply giving different shades of colors names to the naming of ships and bridges. This use of “names” is simply overlooked as it is simply the way things are for most people. In “If Nobody Speaks of Remarkable Things” by Jon McGregor, the idea of names actually takes a big role in this novel.

The United States’ relationships with other countries has been ever changing since the founding of our country. The ways in which countries communicate is quite important because if something goes wrong, it could lead to war. Providentially, the men in positions of power have always wanted to maintain good relations as well as establish the US as a world leader.

However, some presidential tactics in solving foreign affairs had never before been seen and changed the course of history.
Prior to reading this engaging, yet historical-filled book, my personal amount of knowledge on our nation 's history, as well as the founders who created it, lacked. Joseph J. Ellis -philosopher, and winner of a pulitzer prize- uses his awareness and understanding of American history to provide readers with a ‘modern insight’, enabling us to paint a picture in our minds what really occurred during the beginning years of our nation.

I would like to begin, sirs, by announcing; I am not the first with these thoughts. Patrick Henry, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Paine – only a few of the men that share the same notion. It is true; I do not hold the reputation of these men. Nonetheless, I have been involved in American Politics for the past decade . We have passed the simple point of peace.
