I want to talk about the essay which is talking about the birthright citizenship，“Birthright Citizenship Is the Good Kind of American Exceptionalism” written by Eric Foner.
First, in the essay of Eric Foner, he claimed that birthright citizenship is a good kind of American exceptionalism since it is beneficial for establishing the principle idea of equality in the United States. The reason why it is helpful for the equality in the United States is that the 14th Amendment was to state that anyone borned here can be a good American, which also made the white men’s government become Americans’ government.
In my opinion, the beginning thought for the 14th Amendment is pretty good and beneficial which claims the equality very much that every one has the opportunity to be a great American but not like old times when only the white men have right. However,the world changed；nowadays there are so many immigrants，and the growing rate population of immigrants is getting bigger and bigger, which makes some people think that the gigantic population of immigrants gives America more advantages than disadvantages or more disadvantage than advantages. Although, immigrants bring many kind of problems like the security problem as a result of the illegal immigration, immigrants are still much more beneficial for the United Stated. According to the research, Immigrants do stimulate and encourage the economic growth a lot nowadays. Thus birthright citizenship is a advantageous policy which protects the equality, and impacts the United States’ society positively because of their economic role in America. What’s more, we cannot ignore the social problem as well such as the racism.

I want to talk about my experience of learning spinning pen and what i gained in the process of learning pen spinning.
As i was a high school student, i watched a video about pen spinning. It is so cool that i decided to learn about it. Then i researched about pen spinning, which i knew there are many pen spinners all over the world and there is a plenty of organizations such as PSH and JEB in different countries. There is a world-wide competition every year that People from totally different places with different cultural background are communicating with each other friendly for developing this special sport better. It is a interesting thing that there becomes a culture of pen spinning through the time and this new-borned culture enable people to have a great communication. Some people even go abroad in order to meet their foreign friends of pen spinning. I believe that in their view, they do not care a lot about their friends’ identity, cultural background and languages since they are the same who love spinning pen. This kind of social phenomenon is common nowadays as a result of the globalization and the development of technology. Although there are so many conflicts happened in the process of globalization as well, i hold a strong belief that people can finally find a perfect method to those problems after i learned about pen spinning and then realized the magic power of “new culture”.
