Today, we’re reading Justin Glawe’s New York Magazine piece, “The Message from the Heart of the Atlanta Attacks: ‘America Is Getting Worse’”. After reading the article, answer the following questions:
- What event in Atlanta is the article referring to? If you don’t find it clear from the piece, try googling it.
- What does Glawe’s description of Piedmont Heights add to setting the scene?
- Glawe points out that the spa workers left China because “they felt they had to leave in order to have a chance at a better life.” What do you think of this statement? How does it compare to your ideas about the American experience?
- Explain why you think things are getting worse in America. Or, if you disagree with that, explain why.
