The Amish is the fastest growing religious group in the United States.By 2050，there will be about 1 million Amish living in the country.Over half of all Amish settlements in the US were founded after 1990.Today，there are about a quarter of a million Amish living in the US and Canada.One of the reasons for this situation is that the Amish has the highest birth rate in the country.
They raise their children strictly according to religious values and their family traditions are not broken.However，as their farmland is getting limited，more and more Amish people are forced to change the way they live and adopt a new lifestyle.Especially the young Amish people are leaving their traditional home states and are moving west where land is still abundant(充足的)．
Today，more and more Amish people are looking for alternative ways of making a living.Raising cows and sheep is simply no longer enough to survive.They start to open up small businesses.Some have even started Internet-based shops，which is a_far_cry_from the typical Amish tradition.More than half of Amish people earn money from wortside agriculture.Though they still have horses at home，they use modern technology at work.
Many have become very successful and their businesses are developing fast.Studies show they work harder than others and that the rate of failure is much lower than that of non-Amish companies.Amish teenagers are also forced to look for wortside agriculture.This means more income for the family，but it also means they break their tradition.

(2018•广西重点高中第一次模拟)Growing up in Puerto Rico，our family was no different from so many others.My parents got married after my father came back when the war ended.Both of my parents were struggling with the hard economic realities of the time.But somehow，they found time to cherish those cultural values that shaped our everyday life.
In our daily life，we celebrated together with our friends or family members every birthday，every graduation，and all holidays with music and dancing，typical foods.When we visited our family in the countryside—a trip that toot two hours in a car，with five children fighting as to who would get a window or the front seat—we would break into a song，and somehow the trip would turn into one full of happiness and fun.We would sing not only interesting children's songs but also beautiful love songs—songs about the love of the country though we didn't understand the meaning of the words many times.

A culture's values can be mirrored by its humor.Humor has been evaluated by many great minds such as Thomas Hobbes，who dislimor，“Laughter is nothing else but sudden glory arising from some sudden thought of feeling far better than others.” He thought humor to be a negative quality of human narrow-mindedness.
However，Mordechai Gordon，Ph.D of Education，insists，“Humor allows us to view the world from an angle that is amusing rather than serious.” I agree with Gordon.Learning to look at the world through humor is important.
In the United States，every four years an election occurs.Without humor as a way to express their feelings，how else would Americans keep from clawing their eyes out and going the way of lemming? Television shows like The Daily Show have become important parts of American culture.They are mothering the masses by metaphorically (隐喻地) airplane-ing politics into our mouths.They make politics fun.
