2) The Shower Essay
” Suppose a foreigner who walked into your home went straight to sleep in the guest room. Would you be insulted?

How do you think the visitor feels about being in an unfamiliar place? How would your attributions change if the person was quiet and uncommunicative in the morning? Is the existence of a language barrier sufficient reason to avoid communication with people from another culture? Answer together, not as separate questions. (CH – Verbal Communication)
3)Lost Boys of Sudan
As in much of Africa, war is an old and seemingly intractable reality for the people of Sudan. In fact, civil war has largely defined the country in the world’s eyes ever since it gained independence in 1956 from Egypt and the United Kingdom. In the ensuing 40 years, rebels from the country’s southern provinces – populated by black who practice African Traditional Religion and Christianity – have fought periodically against a Sudanese government dominated by the country’s largely Arab, Muslim northern population. The war has cost an estimated 2 million lives from fighting and famine, as the government and an array of southern rebel faction’s battle back and forth across a devastated landscape, with no apparent end in sight. The United States and other countries have tried to help the orphaned children due to these wars.
