would you analyze the argument? How would you compare this specifically to
other artistic works you have seen both in class or outside of class? What is your
personal response to the work? Most of your writing should answer this question.
-I believe that the main focus of this piece is to let us know the rights that we have
to our freedom. It was a written document from one of our older presidents,
President Roosevelt. Since this was passed the congress it has changed completely
from what America used to be to what it is today. Although I do respectfully take
these rights of freedom very seriously, in my opinion no one is one hundred percent
free, yes I am very grateful for all the opportunities this country offers. I am well
aware that we have the freedom that almost all other countries don't have, but
what does being free really mean if everyone has their own opinions and everyone
interprets these rights differently. However, I do know that this country wouldn't be
what it is today without us knowing our rights as citizens of the United States.
Because of these rights we are able to live in peace and work hard to provide for our
families and become better citizens of this country. My favorite right is the right to
freedom of speech and expression, because of this I am able to find myself, we are
able to become a bigger union, and express our thoughts and opinions. This piece
that I read today has been very different from the past ones that I have encountered

in class and outside because this piece is part of who we are, it is our history,
thanks to this we are the nation that we are.-
