Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door! (10-14, Emma Lazarus) These were the words that welcomed my grandparents as they sailed into Ellis Island on a cold sunlit morning in 1939, the whitecaps of the Hudson River lapping against the hull of the overcrowded ship, people pressing against the white iron railing, craning their necks to look at the Statue of Liberty glistening in all of its patina glory. My mother’s family... Continue reading

Thank you steve. I agree with you completely. Not only does this apply to this film, but all films. Eywa Nagahu tsukaman
Hey David. Thanks for the response, I am feeling a lot better. I appologize for not taking the time to post the actual essay question. So here it is: To what extent do you agree that in spite of our enormous ethnic diversity and hyphenated identity of the children of most immigrant parents, we are on the whole shaped by a common culture? What are examples of this common culture’s influence? What are examples of people being impervious (not letting it affect people) to this culture? Hope this helps you. Eywa Nagahu tsukaman

So it is pouring over here and i am trying to contain the various leaks coming into my room. Well, they are forecasting thunderstorms and possibly waterspouts/tornadoes. Should make for an exciting evening. The wind is already picking up and I am just hoping the power will not go out. Anyways, besides the rain, I have another essay to write. This time, it is on gender roles / stereotypes. I am sort of not liking this essay because I have never really looked closely at gender roles before. Oh well, like the cliché goes: you learn something new everyday. Continue reading
