    • I also think that black suffrage, and women rights are important.
    • As a women, I would want to be able to vote and as my mother being a minority I would not want to be discriminated against as far as voting or anything dealing with politics.
  • 10. Responsibilities as a Citizen are
    • My OPINION on what citizens are suppose to do are simple.
    • Protecting ones own education, rights, and health WITHOUT harming others in the process.
    • If everyone were to try this theory then I think there would be less crime happening now.

  • 12. My upcoming Future
    • Honestly, Im unsure where Ill be.
    • In 5 years I would hope to see my self more progressed than before.
    • I dont expect to be rich and famous just well off.
    • If I set reasonable standards for myself which I know Im capable of doing, then is should not be a problem.
    • I get what I put in, if I dont strive to get to my goals then I wont achieve them.
    • Im going to get to my goals by staying focus and always positive about the outcome of things.
