My name is Devon. I'm from Marion. I graduated Harding High School in 2015. I'm majoring in English with minors in creative Writing and professional Writing. I would like to be a professor but if that does not happen I plan on going into publishing or marketing. I work at Meijers. I'm a cashier and work at the service desk.
A huge theme that stood out to me after I read these chapters was discrimination and also how much we all are alike. Lorraine Ali was just like your typical American girl but a huge difference was that she was half Arabian. She was asked questions like " are you a terrorist". People almost acted as though she was a bad person just because of her nationality. It was almost as though she was not a person. On cartoons Arabs were portrayed as being bad. Her dad even hid who he was from his daughters to protect them. I thought it was sad that he did this but can understand why he did. Would you want your children to be like you if you were the public enemy? Although people would question if she was a terrorist. She was a human just like them. She had feelings. She had family. When Kuwait was attacked she watched in horror. She had family living there and was worried about them. When she went back to work though people showed her no sympathy.
