So a little backstory about this shot. We were at the zoo and I really wanted to test my camera out and see if I had any potential to be a photographer, and this was one of the shots of the day. When I showed it to my father, who knows a little bit more about photography, he said you can't even see the frog but I told him thats kind of what I liked about this shot. I've always liked to capture or look at images that kind of show the mysteriousness of nature.
Well what can I say, this pandemic has certainly shaken our world. However, I know that we will get through this because it feels like that perhaps for once we are finally all united as one. That all barriers that existed before and separated us has finally dispersed and that we all see each other as humans and people.
World War II
There has been a few key moments in history where the world stands together in the name of peace and liberty. It is in these times that differences are forgotten and unity grows. In addition, there are also times when some nations are united and some are not, which allows the world to be broken and for its citizens to pick sides. World War II happened because of a cruel and harsh set of rules placed on one country, it was also one of the bloodiest wars that the world has seen and lastly, it caused the world to be even more defensive and build more destructive weapons.
America is indeed a melting pot. This concept can be seen in our everyday lives. The one thing that is most unique is the people within the United States. America wouldn't be the way it is without immigrants and without the different cultures that clash together. Through this clashing, there have been many unique and amazing food options. It has also changed many concepts such as music, family, art, etc. It is what makes each and every single one of us unique and amazing.
Should the US Remove Confederate Memorials?
Should the US take down Confederate Memorials or not? It was once said that those who forget or try to eradicate history, will end up repeating it. History has always had a light and dark side to it. As Newton stated, “For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.” It is by looking back upon both sides of history that one succeeds. By taking down Confederate memorials and/or monuments, the US is trying to erase history, and by doing so, will most likely repeat it again.
