Immigration: My Dad's Point of View

My Journey I never imagined coming here. Born in May 13, 1967 in Xinxiang, Henan, right at the end of the Cultural Revolution, I grew up in a clean, 100 square meter condo like any many children out there. Though we were poor, my home and environment were considered better than most. We never had the chance of eating meat in every meal, though, but we muddled through with little luxury.

My View On Politics

My View on Politics Without politics, the world would be in chaos due to the lack of discipline. Politics help to organize the laws of the land, and help us to find people that would lead us to a better place than we were. But politics can also lead to corruption within the state and person. Politics can bring mud-slinging words to unneeded arguments and harsh comments to simple videos. That is why I believe that politics have a good side, a bad side, and an ugly side.

Whilst it cannot be denied that in The Great Gatsby America is often portrayed as dark and despairing, Fitzgerald also often glamorizes the roaring twenties, which, equally were not always looked upon glamorously by the people of the time themselves. An area reflecting the dark and despairing nature of 1920s America can be seen in the role of women within the...
