Harriet Jacobs was a black women who took a stand into stopping slavery during the Civil War. When she escaped slavery in 1842, she worked on writing her own book about her experience as a slave."I want to add my testimony to that of abler pens to convince the people of the Free States what slavery really is. Only by experience can anyone realize how deep, and dark, and foul is that pit of abominations." Harriet wrote a book to change the minds of the people who supported slavery. She published her book called “Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl” in 1861.
Harriet Jacobs also nursed and educated black troops during the Civil War, then she followed the Union armies to the south with her daughter. She became a member of an active group of reformers to help aid the antislavery cause. Harriet Jacobs deserves a monument because she didn’t let the fact that she was a slave get in the way of standing up for what she believes in. In fact, she used her freedom to share about her life as a slave so that people would change their minds about slavery. On top of all that, she did everything she could to help others when she didn’t have to. Harriet deserves a monument for not being afraid to take action in what she believed in and for using everything she had to help.
Nothing gets handed to you, so If you want to succeed, you have to work. “You can’t be anything you want to be, you can only be what you deserve to be.” Kids can’t expect to get straight A’s without putting any effort. Adults can’t expect to be wealthy without having a nice paying job. For example, If you want to be a doctor, you’ll have to go to college. A lot of people have the capability to be very successful, but they don’t want to work. The more things you want the harder you’ll have to work.
The FBI wants to hack into iPhones to help with investigations. Apple should help the FBI with their investigations.
There are many reasons why Apple should help the FBI unlock phones. According to Whitt Flora, “Cook refused to unlock Farook's phone to help the FBI's investigation of the attack. This refusal is hard to justify in an age when America and its allies are coming under attack from extremist groups.” The FBI only wants to hack into criminals phones, so people shouldn't be worried about their privacy being taken away. Apple should help the FBI unlock iPhones. If Apple would help the FBI, they could catch more criminals. There will be more times when America is under attack, and it would be better to help the FBI instead of doing nothing. If the FBI was able to hack into terrorists iPhones, America would be more safe.
A lot of people worry that if the FBI is able to hack into phones, then their right of privacy in the fourth amendment will be taken away. According to Randall G. Holcombe, “Apple phones have features that protect the privacy of the information on them, and the Fourth Amendment guarantees people this right to privacy.” The fourth Amendment guarantees the right to privacy, but it also states that the government has a right to search personal property if it has a warrant and probable cause. In this case, the FBI doesn’t really have a warrant to hack into phones, but they do have a probable cause. Hacking into iPhones would help the FBI to catch criminals. The FBI wouldn’t even hack the phones of people who aren’t doing anything wrong. People who aren’t doing anything wrong really shouldn’t be worried
Safety is more important than privacy. According to Whitt Flora, “Now, hopefully, they are starting to realize that World War III might have already started. It will not end until we eliminate the tens of thousands of extremists eager to carry out horrible attacks.” There are thousands of extremists groups eager to carry out horrible attacks, so the FBI needs all the help they can get. Terrorism is a big issue. People around the world die everyday because of terrorism, but no one dies by getting their phones hacked. Being safe is more important than privacy.
The FBI has good reasons to hack into phones, so the Apple company should help the FBI with their investigations. It would be easier to catch criminals, and provide us with more safety. People who aren’t doing anything wrong shouldn’t be worried.
During this term assignment, I learned how to be a little more creative. I had to be more creative because we weren’t allowed to copy anyone else’s sayings. This assignment allowed me to think creatively in a fun way. I felt satisfied whenever I’d come up with something on my own.
