Photograph of President William Clinton and Hillary Rodham Clinton Looking at the Declaration of Independence at the National Archives in Washington, DC , 07/01/1999

I chose the above picture because it shows the significance of text and the meaning of the text in our cultural history. In the picture, former U.S. President Bill Clinton is with a group of students looking at the declaration of independence. I know that when I was in Washington D.C., it was a very powerful feeling to see the document and trying to comprehend what the founding fathers went through to come up with the document. The historical significance of the document was overwhelming standing there reading it.

My name is Bruno Chu and this is my sixth MET course so far. I am a teacher and coach at a secondary school in Pitt Meadows. I have thoroughly enjoyed all the classes I have taken with MET so far and I am very much looking forward to the discussions in this class.

Good luck to all…

    Hi Bruno,

    It is a moment of awe to see physical artifacts in person. Anytime I’ve had that opportunity to see a famous piece of art or original historical document, I have felt the same way. When I was a child, I didn’t think it mattered if I ever saw the Rocky Mountains; however, when I did see them up close, I felt awe and realized I was wrong.
