When looking at America and its evolution in my eyes, you can see a recap of the past coming back to the future. What I mean by this is that from all our history books and the movies that we have watched relating to the past I can see how much of a similarity is about to accrue before it even happening. For instance, because of the new president we have Mr. Trump, I feel as if he is trying to make the White Americans superior again by building a border trying to separate Mexico from the United States. Now, this thought has been brought up in numerous circumstances, however, has never been accomplished because we feel like it is unnecessary and is only causing conflict which is why it hasn’t been built. However, since Trump is now president he feels the need to make it come to and make “America happy again”. Trump feels the need to have children that weren’t born in the U.S sent back to where they originated from.
In class we are reading a book called Signs Preceding the End of the World, this book is about a young girl name Maknia who is sent on a journey from her mother to send an envelope to her brother across the country. I feel like this book is the perfect time to read because of the situation that our society is under today. Not only the fact that other states are trying to destroy us, but how Trump wants to create borders to separate families. Makina stands for the immigrants that went through a lot in life to get where they need to be as of today. Even though she went on a mission to just deliver something to her brother she made sure that she did everything in her power to accomplish her goal to get to her brother. She encounters thugs with weapons, and so much more however even though at one part of the book she was terrified she didn’t let her fear get in the way of concurring what she was wanting to accomplish. I feel as if this is a great way to make others of our society, understand that they aren’t alone and how much they shouldn’t give up regardless of a number of doubts they might encounter. If they believe in what they put their minds so they can accomplish anything which is what I feel like this book has guided me to relies even more on life.
That there is more to life then what you find out to be an even though people might push you down it’s up to you to keep moving forward and get to where you want to be.
