“What literature has taught me about the effects of racism”
Its a little embarrassing but before this semester I didn’t know about residential schools; and I am a 16th native. The danger of silence gave me a whole new outlook on the statement “speak up.” Before listening to the danger of silence I had never thought about speaking you truth as in-depth as I did. Watching The Book Thief gave me a new perspective on the effects of world war and how there are always two sides of a story. Reading and watching Romeo And Juliet has shown me that emotions, feelings and, culture can provoke a immense shift in anyones life and well being. Finally first they came for the jews thought me to speak up for not just myself but others as well. Over all this semester of English class has taught me Manny lessons and outlooks on life that I will use forever.
