We are a group of 7th graders from Colorado who want to practice our writing and communication skills. We are excited to expand the walls of our classroom and collaborate with other classes! Please leave us comments and your blog URL, so we can respond back to you!
Learning about Ernest Green and his impact on the world was very interesting, and inspiring. If I was in Ernest's shoes, or any other of the Little Rock Nine's shoes, I would have given up, or would have gone back to my old school. Being beat up and having food thrown on you is very tough, and I admire Ernest, and the other kids for staying strong and fighting through the pain. Today discrimination is a lot better, but we still have it. Discrimination doesn't only happen from what color your skin is, but it can come from age, how much money you have, and how you look. We have come a long way in the world, and hopefully someday we will get rid of discrimination completely!
