What an American Should Look Like
American is a mixed country. There are many people from different cultureS livING together in this country. Different cultureS make people think and act differently. We should respect everyone’s actions whatever way they choose.
It’s true that there are A few ways IN WHAT people act THAT are unacceptable.
Still, we can’t force them to change their own way in order to make us feel comfortable.
Jessica Mitford talks about the way American people treat a people’s dead body in her essay, “Behind the Formaldehyde Curtain.” She tells a lot of details how a dead body is processED to a beautiful “live doll” and how people act during funeral. In the last paragraph, she useS THE word “doll” to describe how a dead body has been (HAS BEEN WHAT?). It is clear that she doesn’t like the way a dead body is treaTed.
What I think is: There are many ways people can deal with death. Body wax is just one of the ways. In some American cultureS (DIDNT GET THIS PART, ARE THERE DIFFERENT AMERICAN CULTURES? I THOUGHT ONE WAS ENOUGH ), people burn up the dead body. And what they keep is bone powder. If Mitford doesn’t like any of these ways, she cAN make her own and carry forward of/ON it. We won’t care.
Horace Miner in his essay, “Body Ritual among the Nacirema,” describeS a group of North AmericanS. Their actions are strange and hard to be understood; they care their mouth so much, and make A hole on/IN (WHERE IS THE HOLE LOCATED?) the mouth. When they are doing that, there is a special ritual activity. Miner thinks THAT with our modern acknowledgeMENT, people could deal with some difficulties easily, but as early men, they don’t have THE ability to solve it. We can’t lower (THE VERB LOWER ALREADY GIVES THE MEANING OF CHANGING TO SOMETHING INFERIOR, DECREASE) them JUST because of our high technology.
We should understand them as well as our social.
