In lieu of an abstract, below is the essay's first paragraph.
"Modern day America is a reflection of many different histories. All different, unique, and significant, yet they all belong to us whether we are directly affected or not. The trials different groups of people face today are the same trials once faced by the millions of Americans who preceded us. Today’s women and men can fight together for rights that are much more than skin deep and connect them all regardless of race. How can different people all fight the same battle if they seem to have nothing in common? The answer is that people with a thirst for acceptance and respect from others are all human beings. We are all the same and much less different than we think."
