I'm sitting here watching the presidents state of the union. While watching it my Dad explained how for the first time in a long time the congress is mixed. They aren't sitting divided; republicans on one side, democrats on the other. For some reason I easily made a connection between this and slavery. A country divided, then over slavery, now over which party you are a part of. The issues may have changed, but have we? We will always disagree, there will always be those two definined groups. Compromise - I think that word needs to begin to describe our country more than it does now.

Today we talked about womens rights and the suffrage movement. It was somewhat interesting, and I was starting to wonder where it fell into American history. Ends up the person I had to do the voice thread on, Adin Ballou, agreed with a lot of ideas that the women suffrage movement focused on. I was kind of surprised by that.

Today we talked about nature. My example was a song. Last night when I was looking for a song about nature, I realized there were a lot more options than I had originally thought. Todays discussion in class really made me believe that nature was a bigger part of our life than I thought.

Today in class we learned about transcendentalism. It actually is an interesting topic and I do want to learn more its still semi confusing ... well not really but I couldn't think of anything else to call it. I have to find a song about nature now.. I'm about to fall asleep because I just got home from field hockey .. so I can't find the energy to write much.
