Exploration Two: Our First Blog Post
My name is John, and I graduated from Ramstein High School in Germany. My parents are in the military, so they still reside in Germany, but I'm currently staying in at the Annex. My dad's side of the family lives in Dayton though, so it's not too far from here. My fun fact was that I lived in Germany for 4 years, but while in Germany though, I played basketball for my highschool for 3 years. We got to travel to Weisbaden and The Black Forest for the Winter Tourney & European Championships. We won the European Championships this year, but placed 3rd in the Winter Tourney; it was an amazing experience though.

The sample reading about the Olympics caught my attention the most. I was caught off guard because I didn't expect such a prestigious event to have so many problems. I thought the theme was going to be about persistence and glory, but the struggles and difficulties the world overcame with the games really surprised me. This chapter I learned that writing affects the world and society even after the events transcribed occur, so this reading demonstrated how the world eventually figured out how to move past their differences and continue the games, because people read and saw things that were happening.
