Reflection

I believe that overall this is a good essay, I worked really hard on it. I made sure to add a lot of information about the back story so the readers had a pretty good idea about what happened before, but wanted to not add too much. Also, I thought it was important to add claims and counterclaims so the reader could see both sides.
