Dear Mr Martin Luther King Jr

Thank you for all that you have done. Its because of you and other civil rights activists that I know that I have voice. You shined a light on the brutality and the injustice blacks faced every day and still in someway face today. I hope that you are looking down on us proud of how far we have come. We still have a long way to go and we will continue to fight and make sure that future generations after us will have a better world to live in, Thank You Mr King .

America’s new reality

There has been so much going on and I have so much on my mind that i need to get it off my chest. As I sit here I never imagined that i would be seeing first hand what my ancestors witnessed . My ancestors fought and worked so hard to make sure that future generations of our family wouldn’t suffer what they suffered and yet here we are . The sad truth that I have come to realize is that we as a country are reverting backwards instead of going forward. When is enough going to be enough ? This Country will not flourish and thrive if we are divided. I never thought i would see the day when I would see our country come apart at the seams. I mean i used to read it in the history books about moments when the country was divided but to actually see it for myself, to witness this saddens me.

This immigration ban saddens me, one because this is not what this country is about and two because it has an affect on my family. If trump can easily put a immigration ban on Muslims whats to say he won’t put one non Muslim immigrants . I think about my Muslim classmates and how this is affecting them and their families. and i think about my other classmates who are immigrants or has family that are immigrants . And now i am worried about my family how its going to effect us. People come to America to have a better life ,they don’t come here just to end up back in the same situation they were in. I wish i can say that things will get better but only time will tell.
