Maya was very excited about her graduation and moving on to new things and new opportunities in the future. “ I gave myself up to the gently warmth and thanked God that no matter what evil I had done in my life he had allowed me to live to see this day” This shows how important this graduation was for her.

Elisa Chacon Political Science 2/22/2013 Constitutional Amendment In my opinion, the most significant constitution amendment is the 19th, women’s right to vote. Back in the day women didn’t have the rights to be heard. All they were able to do was be a house wife, cook, clean, and take care of their kids. I believe this amendment relates to me because I am a woman with my own voice and decisions. If it was the way it was back then, I wouldn’t be able to vote, to be heard, and to make my own choices.
The only things women were “good for” was taking care of their children and husband. Women has many obligations and very few choices, it was a women’s obligation to take care of her family as well as, clean, cook, sew, knit, and basically do anything and everything her husband asked or demanded. Women were more salves than actual wives. They were owned by men, whether it was her father, brothers, cousins, and/or husbands, they were viewed more as property than actual humans. Girls had to learn this life style at a very early age, if their mothers were busy gathering food; the daughter was to maintain the household.

Soon after, I started making friends in high school and learned to communicate with them via E-mail, Yahoo, Facebook etc.
