It's Friday and although I have to work this weekend (boo!) I am feeling pretty darn good.
I completed and submitted my mini research paper on the Park 51 project in NYC, finished all discussions and reading required as well.
Somehow I had forgotten how much I enjoy research papers. Call me crazy, but there is something very satisfying about finding tangible support for your opinion and then arranging those sources among your own voice to make a unique and valid argument.
This particular paper was interesting to me because the subject is such a hot topic for debate as of late. Park 51 is much better known in the media as the "Ground Zero Mosque". It's the Islamic cultural center that is planned to be built two blocks from where the World Trade Center towers stood.
I don't want to get into a debate via blog, so I'll just say that my research caused me to completely change my opinion. It is amazing what you learn when you check every resource you can fund.
