People Food

People and food used to be very similar. We went to Ellis Island and Liberty Island in NYC! There we saw where The Statue of Liberty stands and where immigrants entered the US.

Order of events (if you were an immigrant):

  1. You get harvested. You hear that there’s another country called America, across the blue and you want to move there because you want to escape from war, persecution, or to escape to safety, more money, or religion.
  2. You get shipped. You probably sailed over in the steerage class because it’s the cheapest.
  3. You get processed. They check for any diseases or extraordinary features.
  4. You get shipped again. You bought a train ticket to your new home depending on culture and jobs normally. That’s where my idea kinda…um…uh…well…ended. 🙁 Ooooor I guess, your dream could be to get eaten if you had a disease or extraordinary feature and you had to be shipped back to your home country.

Dude Liberty
Liberty Island was originally used to hold a fort from the War of 1812. The Statue of Liberty was given to America for America’s 100th B-Day. She was designed by Auguste Bartholdi with help from Gustave Eiffel who later went on to build the Eiffel Tower. The Americans thought she needed something to stand on so Richard Morris Hunt collected some money and built a star shaped pedestal for Lady Liberty.
