I, too, sing America
I am the whittier sister
They mock my tone
I wish it would stop,
but the silence awakened
By and by
I aim to rise
from the humiliation,
the shame and disgrace.
Not one will choose to mock
me ever again especially
because I deserve
to be treated with respect.
And when I do, they will be the ones humiliated.-
I ,too, am American
The word American means to respect America and everyone who live in America. The American life is a life filled of opportunities and freedom. Living in America is having tons of people from different countries and different culture traditions. Americans are people who accepts others to come and join the country. The American life has less of stress from other people. Americans do care if people from China come or anyone else from anywhere comes to America for the same reason they are here or for the same reason why they came. The word Americans have different definitions for many people, but for me Americans are people who care and respect America and everyone who lives here, even though many people will disagree. If all the immigrants and undocumented people who came to America left back from where they lived or came from, America won’t be America. The American life has lots of immigrants, undocumented people, different culture, different religions, and different types of food, all of what the American life has were gone it would just be a life just like rest. The thing that makes America, America are the immigrants, the undocumented people, the different cultures, different religion, and all the different types of food. Americans are people who want to live in America and enjoy the American life because everyone wants to live the American life but they are living it. All the people who came to America want to live the American life and they all respect . To live the American life is an opportunity to big to pass and an opportunity to be an American and live the American life.
This image is my partners and my project, we decided to build a staircase and a lamp to show the perceptive of the lamplighter. The staircase contributes to the lamp because when the lamplighter turns on/off the lamp it is like a back and forth system which is the staircase representing. The lamp changes over time because every minute is a day in the fifth planet and the lamp changes because it turns on and off.
Rene Descartes' philosophical ideas are rational like his mind. His idea was that he wasn't sure if he existed or he was thinking/dreaming his existence like the illustration above he was doubting his existed, like the brain/person was doubting if the cloud image looks like a cloud. This doubting made him think about his existence. the doubting is perception and the thinking is perceiving according to Descartes. The knowledge mind, as all seen in the illustration above. With all his thinking he made a very famous quote, "I think, therefore I am," which means if he is thinking he must exist ( I think), the meaning of therefore is so, the meaning of I am is the existence of living in the world. He made the quote my study epistemology-study of theory of knowledge.

The red represents the red flowers (roses) and the pink, purple, dark blue, and orange all represents the different types of flowers around the world. The yellow represents the sun and the light blue represents the sky. The brown represents the branches that holds the trees that is all around the world.
"I think, therefore I am"- Descartes
After read the text, now I know what the famous quote "I think, therefore I am" means. I figured/found out the the quote means he is thinking therefore/ so I exist. He wasn't/ doubting his existence so he was thinking about it for a long time and had a quiet place to think, it was inside an over and his bedroom. When he found himself thinking he found out if he was thinking he must existing. Which made the quote, "I think, therefore I am."
