Letter Module 2.04
Dear Ireland,
Hello my old county. I am writing you to give you inspiration to move over here to the U.S.A. I decided to move from Ireland to the United States because of the potato blight back in the 1840's. I moved here without my family to get a job and a shelter for us to live in before they came over. The ride here was filthy. Since I could not afford high dollar tickets I spent weeks in filthy living spaces and watched the people around me become sick. When I arrived I was amazed by what I saw. So many people arriving were lost in a crowd full of uneasiness. I asked myself questions such as, where am I going to live, what am I going to do, and how am I going to get my family over here? I moved into the big cities because of the housing and the factories that listed available jobs. I was not skilled for work in the factories therefore I received less pay. No only that but I found a whole neighborhood with immigrants from Ireland, so I could maintain some of our customs and traditions and look for support from my community. Life here is not as easy as you think. There is a lot more to life here than just living. I do have a difficult job with little pay so I do have to work long ours to help my family.Not only that, the factories are filthy and unimaginable. If you look past that though I think I made the right decision moving here with my family and that you will look at my story for inspiration to move here. Who knows, I may be calling you my neighbor soon.
Yours Truly,
-Mason McAndrew
Please do not copy my work just to call it your own. I worked hard on this and I do expect you to work hard on yours. My name is not Mason McAndrew it is Miranda Butterfield and I wrote this letter from the viewpoint of an Irish Immigrant.
Thank you for watching!
