    Excerpt: ... these less fortunate people, these people who of which have rich lands full of raw materials but are in fact blind to there existence and potential. Columbus feels the need to point them in the right direction, show them the light. Columbus does this because he is ethnocentric, he will not stand and look at people such as these who live in such polar ways as to the way he does. He will not stand for it, he feels it is his obligation to impose his religion and technology upon these savages so they will to see the greater life, or what Columbus thinks is the greater life. Through De Bry's painting one can easily depict several boundaries. The natives look as if they are content with the fact that Columbus is there. They see him as a God figure, so they try to bestow upon him their riches. Columbus and his men on the other hand look as if they are going to try and show these natives a new sense of life.

    Colorado, EDUC 3013

    Excerpt: ... lies were, for the most part, middle to high class (economically). All of my classmates attended a co-ed private high school but I decided to look elsewhere and chose The Academy of the Holy Cross . Holy Cross was an all-girls Catholic school on the outskirts of Washington, D.C. The other children and parents saw this choice as out of the ordinary because I wasn't following the rest of the crowd. I met a much more diverse group of girls and absolutely loved every minute of high school. Again, breaking the mold, I chose to come to CU. My favorite teacher, Ms. Mackinnon, pushed me to make my own choices and not to settle for 1 anything less than my dream. My parents and friends' parents were shocked by my choice, but gave me positive reinforcement instead of trying to make me follow the group. I have been extremely fortunate to have the opportunity to openly discuss my decisions and have been supported by my family, friends, and teachers. Through Ms. Mackinnon's and other teachers, and also other people a ...
