After the 2016 elections, we had a class discussion about Trump’s victory. Everybody in the class was devastated about Trump winning the elections, so we all expressed our emotions and opinions, and somehow it comforted everybody. We all felt better since we realized we were not the only ones going through a sad time.
Also, we all discussed the burning of the flag in our Campus of American University. It was a very shameful act for some of us but for some people it was a way of expressing their emotions. I felt very ashamed of the act, especially because I am from the Dominican Republic, and our country is very prideful and we respect the flag and the idea of our independence, so burning the flag is illegal there. Also, I believe it is a way of disrespect for those whose family members died fighting to protect the American Flag.
I think the discussion was very efficient, and I think we all felt better after discussing our thoughts.
