Cultural Observations From A Somalian-American - Did you ever know that every country has different cultural values and norms that may cause misunderstanding among cultures around the globe. Of course, I didn’t really know that till I migrated from my country to the USA. A long time ago, I believed that the world was filled with homogenous societies which are based upon one culture only and that culture must be my own culture which I must follow as the ethnocentric standard to all other nations in the world. But later, I had experienced living in multi cultural communities and different continents around the globe, such as Africa and Asia, where getting involved in other people’s lives is very common....   [tags: Cultural Issues] 1898 words

Analysis of Frost's Mending Wall - To begin the poem, the speaker describes the various causes for the damage of the wall.
