This paper illustrates that at 11:45, about 9 students were seen in the cafeteria and a lot more, numbering about 21 seen at the entrance to the cafeteria. Normally, students take time outside the cafeteria to read through the menus and other information that are posted on notice boards in front of the cafeteria. Most of these students who were outside the cafeteria where observed to be refugees and immigrants from Nepali and Iraq. The researcher walked to one of the tables where three of these students were sitting and he heard them engage in conversation that centered on how lucky they consider themselves to have come to the United States to receive freedom and citizenship. Repeatedly, one of these students made mention of the term, American dream. At 11:49, a lot more of the students had entered the cafeteria and it was almost full now. This is because the researcher could count as many as 25 students in the main cafeteria. Most of these students were in the queue to buy different food products. When the hall started becoming filled up, the researcher moved from the position he had taken earlier to a corner of the cafeteria where he saw almost every student very clearly. At around 12:00, the author noticed one Muslim girl with a sparkling scarf who had gone to get her food. She got pepperoni pizza. But after she took the food to her table, the author observed that she did not eat the food. The researcher could assign this to religious reasons because Muslims do not eat pork. Readily, he compared this girl to his own kids and he realized that she was different from his girls. This is because the author has always explained to his kids why they should not pork for religious reasons but they will hardly take his excuse.
