3p Week 4 Question

Page history last edited by Lynell Butler-Williams 8 years, 5 months ago






This quote was in your reading last week:


“Baby, we have no choice of what color we’re born or who our parents are or whether we’re rich or poor. What we do have is some choice over what we make of our lives once we’re here.”


Mama’s words to Cassie are appropriate for all of us.  We all have to take responsibility for our own lives, to make the vest of the cards we’re dealt, so to speak. We all have strengths and weaknesses, talents and shortcomings, things in our favor and things against us.


For this week’s response, share what kinds of things are against you, or not in your favor. What do you want to do with the rest of your life?  How can you overcome or circumvent the obstacles between you and your goal? What do you need to realize your goals? 


Reminder: use complete sentences and correct grammar in your comments.  Also, reply to 2 classmates' comments in an appropriate manner.

The, kinds of things that i think are against my favor is being from another race. even though im proud of what i'am there's alot of racist people out there i want to go to college and overcome racism that i've faced before i want to show people what i can do.

I agree with Darwuim that people are racist but dont really need to be. I want to be a dental hygentsit when i go to college. I can overcome obstalces between me and my goals by finding a solution some how and some way. To realize my goals i need to find something I want to do for the rest of my life and stick to that or have a backup plan.
