In my AP US History class, we’ve been learning about settlers and how they moved to America and created a home for themselves. They built everything by hand and had to learn to survive in a totally new place. It was extremely difficult and many people died trying, but they persevered. We live from the fruit of their labor. I find it so amazing that people can accomplish so much from teamwork and sheer determination.
Whenever I see buildings and huge cities as well as small towns and rickety buildings, I think, ‘Wow, someone built that’. It is truly amazing what people can do and how much we’ve grown and continue to grow as years go by. With each new generation, new things are being created and advances in science are being made. The human mind is limitless as long as we are determined and willing to go through the work.
