Here Are The 20 Weirdest Things About Americans According To Foreigners. The Last One... Yep.
...America the Weird. I can understand most of these but I don't see how the Pledge is so creepy?? <<< Imagine it this way: A class full of children, all facing a symbolic object and all making the same gesture. They chant in monotone unison their loyalty to the object. A bit satanic, isn't it? (I do live in the US. I did this, too. Never thought it was weird until I learned that NO ONE else does this. Not even Russia.)
Characterization: Maria Teresa- Step 1, "I feel so lucky that we have him for president. I am even born the same month he is (October) and only nine days (and forty-four years!) apart. I keep thinking it shows something special about my character" (37). Maria Teresa is a very innocent character, it shows in this quote because she doesn't know about Trujillo's secret, but since her family adores him, she follows. She also shows that she likes to look at the positive side if things.
