A job I desperately want has asked me to write an essay on my view of America. I am stumped. First of all, I have a lot to say on my view of America, but when looking for a job, it is best to keep things non political. I have never been more proud to be an American than I am now, only sixty years ago, in some Southern States, African Americans were not allowed to vote. Today, our next American president is African American. But, again, I want to keep it very non political.
And another problem, I haven't written an essay for at least ten years. I don't even remember what an essay is! I remember learning that in an essay you are suppose to "prove" something with a thesis statement, I think.
So I'm at a road block. How do I prove something that is non political? I can write about how proud I am to be an American, but I don't think I'll secure the job that way.
