~8th graders E pluribus unum / “One” Essays~
Sticking together is one of the most important part of our lives. The world would be a wreck if no one got along. We can learn this from speeches, cartoons, songs, and many other great sources. Don’t be prejudiced against a person because they are different.
Martin Luther King Jr. once said “We may have all come on different ships but we’re all in the same boat now”. He was trying to say “it doesn’t matter where our ancestors are from, were all in the same country today and are citizens in our communities. Have empathyfor all people and it is wrong to segregate others. Respect one another and treat them the way you want to be treated. People should like you for your identity and not hate you for your color or race.
EPLURBUS UNUM is a great example of getting along with others that are not your race. It means “out of many, one”. The cartoon is trying to say that after 911, Americans were afraid of another terrorist attack. Some people would discriminate against all of the Arab-Americans in our country because they are the same nationality as the bombers. We didn’t want that to happen again. The cartoon is trying to make it clear to it’s readers that it is not okay to be racist.
Martin Luther King Jr. thought that sticking together was so important that he traveled to , in , to teach the students about sticking together. “Don’t allow anybody to pull you so low as to make you hate them. Don’t allow anybody to cause you to lose your self-respect to the point that you do not struggle for justice---how ever young you are”. He thought it was extremely important to be involved in the struggle for freedom and justiceThe meaning of this quote is that you shouldn’t care what people think of you. Why would you want to hang out with someone that hates you, not for who you are, but for your culture?
I think that sticking together is extremely important. Pretty soon if you dislike everyone you won’t have anyone to lean on when you need them. Also the person who you are prejudice against will get their feelings hurt. Don’t dislike someone just for the color of their skin. People might think of you differently if you’re racist.
In the song “One” by Bono, it is telling people to get along with one another. You don’t have to like a person, just be a better person and don’t discriminate against someone who has a different race. If we all got along we would be a much stronger country and we would be a better citizen. Don’t blame others for your problems. Also when the song was made into a video, a black woman was added to sing with Bono. That could represent “ E pluribus Unum” by saying the black woman and white man can sing together with no problems.
In conclusion, don’t be the person who hates others just because they are different from you. In 1943-1945 during the Holocaust, Hitler spoke out against humans who were not German and tried to create a perfect German race. Look how he turned out. Everyone that were not German and most who were, hated him because they didn’t think it was right to kill and torture people because of their religion. Have empathyfor others and get together.
“We all live with the objective of being happy; our lives are all different and yet the same.”
~ Anne Frank
“We may have all come on different ships, but we’re in the same boat now.” This quote by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., means that everyone came from a different race and culture, but we’re all in one nation now, living together. We all may look different but we are still the same. We should not discriminate on the color of skin or beliefs. does not mean being the same, it means being different, it means having diversity and interdependence. We are all one but we are not the same. ~ “one” Bono~
“Don’t allow anybody to pull you so low as to make you hate them. Don’t allow anybody to cause you to lose your self-respect to the point that you do not struggle for justice---how ever young you are. You have a responsibility to seek to make your nation a better nation in which to live.” Martin Luther king Jr. wrote this quote to tell people that they should never give up, and always forgive. Everybody wants justice so we need to fight for what’s right. Don’t let anyone stop you from being you. “Strength is not only in the similarities, but also in the differences.” ~anonymous~You have a responsibility to forget about regrets in the past and think about the future, and believe that everyone should have justice.
Our country is about E pluribus Unum, from many one. After we got attacked by 9/11, our country was in despair and a lot of us blamed people who were from a different race. People were thinking too much about the past and not enough about the future. Then we remembered what the U.S is about, E pluribus Unum. We needed to get over the past and use interdependence to stop this mistake from happening again. We don’t necessarily want to get along, but we have to get along together in this world to be able to survive.
Bono felt that he needed to tell the people what E pluribus Unum really means. He wrote a song in 1991 called “one”. His song talks about how “we are one life, but we’re not the same. We get to carry each other.”But if you don’t care for your nation or justice, then it will leave you and you will have ruined your one life.
I think that we should stop racism and discrimination. If we could work together then we would be an even greater country without worries. If we learn more about each other, there would be less hate.
Dr. Martin Luther King once said, “ We may have all come on different ships, but we’re in the same boat now”. This is saying that our country is good because we can all stick together and we should help each other out. He is also saying that although we all came from different nations and some people were forced to come here, we are all still uniting in this one nation and this makes us a more powerful nation. We can learn this from being interdependent and working in this nation together and not hurting one another and helping out our community in a group.
In the song “One”, this is a song about coming together as one. This song is saying that we are all one in the same nation, but we have choices, beliefs, cultures, and different personalities. The song is also saying that we don’t have to get along, but we should get along in order to survive in this world. This song is also saying that you shouldn’t be living in the past, but in the present. We have no choice to get along in this nation.
The political cartoon is saying that although we live in a diverse nation we all should come together and be interdependent. “E Pluribus Unum” means out of many one. This political cartoon is saying although the 9/11 attacks happened we all came together to help out the people that lost relatives or friends in the attack. Our nation had a choice to help the people who lost some of their loves ones and our nation had empathy for others and we stuck together.
In the address by Martin Luther King was called, “What’s Your Life’s Blueprint”. This is saying that you shouldn’t have anybody try and change you or try and change any of your opinions that you have. This quote is also saying that you can succeed by becoming involved in your community and helping out your own nation to make it a better nation to live in. A quote in this is “And so you must be involved in the struggle for freedom and justice”. This quote is saying that to be involved in what’s right you have to know what is just. This is also saying that if you help your nation it will be a better nation to live in. For example, helping your community by doing charity and cleaning up around the community.
In the song a line is “We’re one but we’re not the same. We hurt each other, then we do it again”. I think this means that even though we aren’t the same, but we still live in the same nation. Although we still live in the same nation we will hurt our friends and our families. The people who they hurt will forgive the people who hurt them, but people will hurt that same person over and over again. I think that people just shouldn’t be mean to the others in the first place because one day they are going to need that person and they won’t be there for them. Our nation should just all come together and not argue or hurt others and be an interdependent nation.
Martin Luther King changed many things and his speech had a powerful influence on people and it help to change the community. This speech helped people to come together and to help each other out and know their identity which means knowing who you are and not following others and being your own person.
“One Love, one heart Let’s get together and feel all right....”
~ Bob Marley
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. said “we may have all come on different ships, but were in the same boat now”. I think that he meant that we are all the same inside. We all should be treated the same no matter what color we are, we all do the same work now and live in the same nation. We all work together and share the same tools and help each other. You cannot judge others by what they look and act like. You cannot let words or what people say to you bother you. We can learn this lesson from cartoons, quotes and song and many other sources.
Martin Luther King Jr. said “Don’t allow anybody to pull you so low as to make you hate them.”Don’t choose to hate people for who they are, or what color they are.Everyone should have, and enjoy, their freedoms and rights as humans.We should fight for social justice to make everyone’s life better. Don’t use racial slurs when talking to someone.
“Out of many, one”, or “E Pluribus Unum” could also mean we’re all different, yet we’re all one. Martin Luther King used this message in most of his speeches.The origin of the motto “E Pluribus Unum” comes from the joining of the thirteen colonies into the .The political cartoon “E Pluribus Unum” represents all the people who wanted to help out after the 9/11 tragedy. We all cared for all the people who died on that day. Everyone cared for the people that were in the towers that day. It didn’t matter your identity or race on 9/11, we were all American.
In the song “One” by Bono, we should look for the line “We’re one but we’re not the same, we hurt each other, then we do it again”. I think this line means that we are all American even though we all act and look different.You only get one life so don’t mess it up, treat people with the respect you hope they will give you.It doesn’t matter what color or religion we are, we are the same inside.
I think all people should be treated the same no matter what color or religion they are. We all do the same things as each other. No matter what color we are we are all the same in the inside. If we call our self a free country then everyone should be treated equal as each other no matter what race we are.
“Strength is not only in the similarities, but also in the differences.” The key to interdependence is accepting others differences. Similarities can bring people together but it’s realizing others differences and combining them as one that make powerful. People can learn about coming together by many sources including songs, movies, quotes, and documents.
The song “One” by Bono isn’t saying we need to be best friends with everyone it means we have one chance in life and when you exclude a certain person, family, or race that’s not making the best of life. In the song “One” it says, “Love is a higher law Love is a temple” Bono doesn’t mean you should only love one specific culture, but love is precious and don’t waste it, love everyone, give everyone an equal chance.
“Snowflakes are one of nature’s most fragile things but just look what they do when they stick together.” One of the main things in life is sticking together. E pluribus unum means one out of many. E pluribus unum’s goal is always being there for one another and when in doubt stick together. The importance with E pluribus unum is that a diversity of cultures came together with knowing that they weren’t the same, but that didn’t stop them from uniting. Uniting is a major key for sticking together.
Martin Luther King Jr. said “We may have all come on different ships, but we’re in the same boat now.” Martin Luther King Jr. is saying even though everyone came to the in a diversity of ways we are together now and that’s all that matters. Some people chose to come to others were forced.
The cartoon about 9/11 with E pluribus unum means that even though tragedies happen we all stick together and get through it. If everyone is going to judge everyone by race then why not do the right thing which is treat everyone the way you want to be treated. The worst punishment is not working together we must always have interdependence no matter where or how people came to . If no one came together after 9/11 then there would be a lot of hurt in the world.
In school teamwork doesn’t mean giving your friends answers and letting them cheat off of you. Just like in sports there is no “I” in team. When you work together you can accomplish your goal. In school if you only give one friend all your attention, your not living your life to the fullest and that connects to real life because you need to accept others differences. To show acceptance students shouldn’t make fun of others they should make the most of their life and accept others. All people are human beings and we all share the same traits but just remember there are some people out there that are different then you. You laugh because I’m different; I laugh because you’re all the same.
The way to achieve interdependence is to forget race and religion and stand together. We forget differences and concentrate on the goal ahead and try to achieve it. The phrase “E Pluribus Unum” means “together as one”, this is what our society today needs to do to achieve total interdependence. This can be expressed in songs, articles, and cartoons.
E Pluribus Unum means Out of Many, One. This is the motto we must follow to achieve interdependence and is also the motto of our country. In the political cartoon, it is saying that no matter what race or religion, we must stick together and unite among ourselves. There is power when people stick together. This is significant after 9/11 because it is an event that will be remembered through history and will always be remembered, although it may be difficult for the people who were attacked or had family or friend who were attacked.
In Bono’s song “One”, some key lines that suggest uniting is “We get to carry each other, carry each other, one” and “You ask me to enter, and then you make me crawl”. This symbolizes the hardships of trying to unite. This also symbolizes, that just because somebody is different doesn’t mean they are terrorists, they are just different. This also means that even though you are hurt, you should still try and unite to stop what is happening and that you should try to forgive.
Martin Luther King’s speech means that people should not get angry about other people’s differences. He also says that you shouldn’t bring yourself down by criticizing other people’s beliefs and customs. You should respect them. Also, that it is our responsibility to keep this country together and to keep the order that we have established. We must unite and forget differences to keep the order established in our country.
“We all came on different ships, but we are on the same boat now” is a famous quote by MLK that says that we were once all from different origins at one point, but we are all Americans now. And that we need to unite to keep our country the same in tough times. This also means, that just because somebody looks different doesn’t mean they are and that we can’t just separate our whole country because of a race.
In conclusion, our country is a great country and we need to keep the order here. This will be totally achieved over time and through the courage of our soldiers and fellow Americans. This means that no matter race or religion we should forget past acts like 9/11 and the bombing and just try to keep the peace
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once said “We may have all come on different ships, but we’re in the same boat now.” This saying means is that we are the same in one way, we are all people with different cultures and or different colored skin. We are citizens of one country but we are all in one world. The song “One” is about coming together. It’s the idea of let’s all live together. Its saying “We’re are one, but we are not the same”. Bono says, “It’s not saying we even want to get along, but that we have to get along together in this world if it is to survive. It’s a reminder that we have no choice.”
In the song “One”, Bono sings, “We get to carry each other, carry each other as one.” That means that we all live as one and we are all the same just with different cultures or skin and everyone should be nice to one another because if they make fun of someone else that means your hurting yourself.
The cartoon “What’s your life’s blueprint” is about all being together and being as one. As different as we all are we are one nation. We are one family in our own way. The cartoon also says that we all have to be one family, work together stay together. After being attacked by 9/11, we have to learn how to respect each other and know how to love each other as they are. Now that the 9/11 has happened, I think that some people have learned to love one other. Now we respect each other as one, just because they are a different color or how they speak different doesn’t mean that we are different on the inside it means we are different on the outside but all the same on the inside. E pluribus unum means, a national motto of the . Translated for Latin, it means “From many one” Or “Out of many one.” This relates to this essay because, it is talking about how you don’t make fun of people just because they don’t have the same clothes or they don’t have the same things as you or they are not pretty. You still can like someone for what they are and not what they have.
You should act polite in the classroom and at school, because you should treat each other as a equal. It doesn’t matter if you’re not the same. Rather if your skin is black, white, or if you have a different culture, or a different language, you should still be treated like equal, this means that we all have to learn how to be as one and not treat other people that are not like you like they are dirt.
Doing this essay has taught me a lot about how to treat people and not to treat them different just because they have different things or have different skin and or culture. Writing this essay has taught me how to treat each other as one.
My own opinion about the different culture and the different skin is that you should treat people the same way as you treat your best friends. Because, if you say the wrong words to someone that you don’t like and you make fun of them, you can make them really sad and you can really damage a persons inside with words. So that is why I think that this was a very good essay to write and to teach us a good lesson. In this paragraph means empathy in concept words.
E pluribus unum was one of the first mottos adopted by the government to appear on the United States Seal in 1782. The motto now appears on most currency. The phrase “E pluribus unum” comes from the Latin term meaning “out of many, (is) one” or “from many, (comes) one”. The phrase was adopted along with the terms “AnnuitCoeptis” and “NovusOrdoSeclorum”. AnnuitCoeptis has the literal meaning “approves the things having been begun”. “NovusOrdoSeclorum” has the meaning “new order of the age.” E pluribus Unum is commonly translated to “one for all, and all for one” or “un pour tous, tous pour un”.
The song “One” by Bono has a lot to do with E pluribus unum. He says that “Love is a higher law, love is a temple, love is the higher law” and that “We’re one but were not the same”. Because that is what E pluribus unum is about, even though we are all in the same country, we’re not all the same. We’re all different in some way.
Martin Luther King Jr. said “ We may have all come on different ships, but we’re in the same boat now.” He meant that even though there are people in America from all over the world, we are all Americans and we all need to work together to achieve happiness. He also meant that there is a wide variety of ethnicities in the but people should not discriminate against them and that everyone should be viewed as equal.
The cartoon shows a group of people representing “E pluribus unum”. They not only represent it by wearing it on their backs. But they are also all working together, even though they are all different ages and cultures. It shows that even if you aren’t the same race or culture, everyone still needs to work together and show empathy for each other. The cartoon also shows people from the middle-east and the cartoon is about 9/11 when we were attacked by terrorists from there. So it shows that even though they attacked us, not all Arab-Americans are terrorists and they should not be discriminated against.
I think that in school people need to work together to solve problems and to make sure that everyone is in a good work environment. People need to stay together even if they are from different cultures or parts of the world. It is important for people to have the power to work together.
E pluribus unum is important in the because all people need to work together and use interdependence. They also need to have empathy for each other, no matter what race or culture you are. It doesn’t matter what religion you are, everyone needs to get along for there to be peace and happiness in the and the whole world.
Civil rights have been important to many people in the past and now.Today, some people, like Arab-Americans are being discriminated because of things people did from or other Middle Eastern countries.The purpose of civil rights is to make your statement known and that everyone is one race.That race is called human.If you are racist against people, you are one of those people.
Martin Luther King Jr. has a famous quote where he talked about civil rights in which he says “we may have come on different ships, but we’re in the same boat now.”What that means is we may have come to differently, but we are a united country.Even though we are different, we are still the same.In the song, Welcome to Wherever You Are” by Bon Jovi, he sings, “Maybe we’re different, but we’re still the same.We all got the Blood of Eden running through our veins...”That means we may all be a different race, but we all came from God.This is important to American culture because if we are prejudice against, for instance, Jewish people, than we are really prejudice against Hispanics, Muslims, whites, blacks, Japanese, and all other races and religions because we are all one race known as the human race.
In the song One, Bono says, “you tell me to enter, but then you make me crawl.” This means that people used to tell you one thing, but then they say you can’t.This song is important to because if one person is prejudice against another race, than this country is prejudice against that race and that means that this country will never be truly “free.”Some people may believe that, “hey! I hate these people because of the way they look.”Well, if they hate those people, than they hate all Americans because the song says that we are all one race and we need to come together or we will fall to terrorism.
In the political cartoon, it shows a 911 memorial and different races of people walking away from it with “E Pluribus Unum” written on the cards. That means that we must be united with everyone to make sure that something like that never happens again.If we are not united, then we will fall to terrorism or other countries.At FDR’s inaugural, he said, “…We have nothing to fear but fear itself.”That means that we don’t have to be afraid of our fellow Americans, but we should use our fear to help war efforts.If we are afraid of each other, we are not united.And if we are not united we will fall.“United we stand.Divided, we fall.”
The fight for civil rights has gone on for many years and unfortunately continues today with the middle-eastern immigrants that come to .Now, people accuse them of being terrorists.These poor people emigrated to find a better life in , only to find that the Americans accuse them of being terrorists because of something that someone else did.Imagine what would be like if we could all get along and be united.
“...And the world will live as one”~ Imagine / John Lennon ©1971
Bono sings, “one life with each other,” you have to make the best of it. “We may have all come on different ships, but we’re in the same boat now,” said Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. We all live with each other we have to respect. If you don’t have a diverse people in the world we would all be the same. Everything would be alike and we wouldn’t be able to connect with each other. We can learn about unity from songs, cartoons, speeches and other things.
In the cartoon E-PLURIBUS-UNUM (one of many), is used to bring us together after September 11th. E-PLURIBUS-UNUM means, one of many. Each person makes his or her own identity. I am one of many, you are one of many and we can come together after tragic times to comfort each other. If we didn’t help each other like in the time of September 11th, we would have fallen apart. Even if we are different we are all part of the human race. We are one of many but each one is different in personality and looks. In the cartoon the people have their arms locked together to stick together. There are different types of people hand in hand, and arm and arm together to help each other through the time of September 11th.
There is only one human race we are all to stick together. We should help each other not tear each other apart. We have to have unity and stick together. “Don’t allow anybody to pull you so low as to make you hate them ... you have a responsibility to seek to make life better for everybody,” said Martin Luther King Jr. If someone pulls you that low try to work it out. You should have “liberty and justice for all” and not be selfish, as it says in the Pledge of Allegiance.
“To drag the past out into the light, we’re one but were not the same...” sang Bono in his song which means don’t bring other things into the problem. In this song Bono wants to show the differences between people. He is showing what brings us together and telling us not to, fade away. We can and should be there for each other. Like he says within his song “carry each other...”
“Snowflakes are one of natures’ most fragile things but just look what they do when they stick together,” say a lot of people. We should be like snowflakes and stick together. We have to stay together and get the job done. One snowflake may stand up and make the pile higher and we should follow it, not plow it down. If one is different then the pile shouldn’t fall down.
Bono does have important things to say in his song One. He says “It is a song a about coming together, but it’s not the old hippie idea of ‘Let’s all live together.’ It is, in fact, the opposite. It’s saying, ‘We are one, but were not the same.’ It’s not saying we even want to get along, but that we have to get along together in this world if it is to survive. It’s a reminder that we have no choice.” If we don’t get along it is making life harder to live. If we don’t get along, people will be mad at them or that race and there will be a lot of commotion. If we judged every book by its cover, would you read most of them? If we judge a person by their looks, then there would be a lot of unhappy people. People should not be taken by their looks it is their inside. Their identity and personality makes them who they are not what they look like.
We should try to make the best of life. We need to stick together and get through our tough times. We can stand up for what we believe in but don’t take others down if you don’t succeed. Be like a book, the pages are what is or what did go on in your life, and the binding is everyone holding on.
“...We’re all in this together, once we see there’s a chance that we have and we take it...” was part of the song from High School Musical. People should stick together and get rid of prejudice and live free.Stand up for what you believe in and make it true.
“Everyone is special in their own way, we make each other strong, We’re not the same were different in a good way , together is where we belong,” this is a line from a song from High School Musical. This line from the song means that even though we are different we all stand together. Many resources state that even though we are different we are all here together as one.
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. said “We may have all come on different ships, but we’re in the same boat now,” this quote means that even though we may be from different places or be a different race, we all are in the same country now and we all work together. Everyone who came from different places to be here in our country all come together to fight as one to defend our country. Martin Luther King Jr.’s speech explains that even though everyone is different you can’t let someone different bring you down.
The song “One”, by Bono explains that our country is one and we all here for each other. Even though sometimes parts of our country may fall down, but the other parts of the country will carry each other and help them. The song explains that our country is full of empathy and choices to help each other. A line from the song, “We’re one but we’re not the same” means that even though we are one country we are still different whether it be by race or if you are from a different country.
After the tragic day of 9/11 changed many people’s lives. This tragic day also brought people together. It brought people together to stand as one and fight the fear that something else could happen. When people stand together as one we become very powerful, together as one we can change things. The political cartoon explains that even though a tragic day can change everything we can all stand together and have empathy for people. E pluribus unum means out of many one. This is on the cartoon because out of many races we are all one in this country.
During high school many children are constantly being put down because what they look like or what they wear. Children need to remember that even though we look different or what we wear is different that we are still in the same country, and we are all different. During school, teachers should be there when someone gets picked on about whether they are different or not. Teachers need to stop the criticism to kids who are different.
Being different doesn’t have to separate people, we all can be one but still be different at the same time. Everyone should work together and try to stay as one no matter what race, or what culture you are. Many people get picked on because of what they look like but inside everyone is the same, they may look different on the outside but in the inside we are all the same.
“ and seven years ago our fathers brought forth to this continent a new nation conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.” (’s Gettysburg Address) I believe that the discrimination of different races in the started with slavery. Then we fought a great Civil War. During that great Civil War Lincoln gave the Gettysburg Address in . I think that we have to remember when we (the north) won the Civil War, it was a new beginning for all black and white people. Over the years we have tried as a nation to become more diverse by freeing the slaves, giving all the right to vote, letting women into the work force that once was all male. Even though our country is very large, with many people of different nationalities and ethnic back grounds, we are one country.This country was made because we wanted to be free, not bossed around and then that didn’t happen because the separated the blacks and whites. They are no different to us, they do the same things as whites and they have the same human soul as us.
The song one-life one love is a song talking about how if you screw up you can’t fix what happened but you can change and make the future better. I personally like the video version better because he picks a woman to sing with him and what is different is that he has a woman of a different race sing it. It makes the song fit so much better and told what he was trying to express. The first line asks, “is it getting any better or does it feel the same” and I feel that that is saying things can get better stay the same or get worse. You can’t change what already happened but you can make it better, worse or do nothing about it and see where you end up. He says that we will work and be together no matter what, we are all the same in some way. We all have feelings and some things hurt our feelings.
In the 9/11 cartoon, on the backs of their shirts it says E Pluribus Unum, which means out of many one. My definition is that we will be together no matter what obstacles we come upon. We will fight till it’s over and use our power of interdependence (working together). When 9/11 happened how old where you? When did it happen? It happened in 2001 and it is 2007 now. Look how long we have hung in there, stuck it out and fought for our freedom. Men white, colored, religious, people of all kinds’ men and women are fighting for our freedom and we should have lots of respect for them. Yet we see someone different in the parking lot and we pick on them or laugh at them, when they could have put there lives on the lines to keep this country free and that could be why there like that. You do not know that they fought or not, but you do know that they are still human and very like you. We have the same feelings as they do and we should respect that.
As Martin Luther King once said, “Don’t allow anybody to pull you so low as to make you hate them. Don’t allow anybody to cause you to lose your self-respect to the point that you do not struggle for justice---how ever young you are. You have a responsibility to seek to make your nation a better nation in which to live. You have a responsibility to seek to make life better everybody. And so you must be involved in the struggle for freedom and justice.” I believe that Martin Luther King meant that you should do what’s right, not what makes you look cool. I also believe that even though you are diverse to other people, that is what makes our world survive because of our different talents. He says you should never let people hold you back you should always hold your head high no matter what happens.Martin Luther King led many protests for the blacks such as the bus boycott and other various protests.
As a teenager growing up you will face many hard ships many obstacles and though you do not like what is going on whether it be home work or some one picking on you, you should always keep your head up and make the most of every situation. You shall always do what’s right and walk in the hands of your own conscience that governs your actions every day of your life from yesterday till the day you die.
