September 24

Today we had the debate that we were supposed to have yesterday. It was okay, I just got confused at one point but it ended up working out in the end. Walking out of class was a weird experience though.. I never thought I'd be one of the kids to do that. It got even better once Ms. Daw walked by... It was cool having a flash back to what was really happening in America over 200 years ago. Now we worry about helping others get their independence, and fighting against people that have hurt out country, instead of debating over if we want independence from England. The world truly has changed so much in such a short time. In what 4ish generations, America has gone from being colonized by the English, to gaining their own independence, to becoming known as the United States, to ending slavery, and women having equal rights, to fighting in two world wars,  and so much more besides just that, the list goes on and on. Todays class really got me thinking about the past, present, and future.


  1. How wierd was it playing somebody who truely didnt want the country to succed? That must've felt really odd, being a born and bred American.

  2. I would say that it is more like 8 or 9 generations since we gained independence, but your point is well taken. We certainly are trying to share our way of life in an effort to make people's lives better, at least as we see fit.
