50% sandwich, 50% hot dog

Journalism 1 student Sailer Henninger shares her opinion on if a hotdog is a sandwich, she is split.

We’re debating about whether or not a hotdog is a sandwich. I don’t believe that this is the issue though, so I wanted to voice my thoughts and have you review them for me.

First, we need to understand what makes a sandwich, a sandwich. I believe that two pieces of bread housing something makes a sandwich what it is. Though, my neighbor might tell you that a sandwich is anything between two other things. By definition neither of us are wrong, I could eat a grilled cheese sandwich or get sandwiched between two people in a crowd. 

So in my opinion, a hotdog is a sandwich as much as it isn’t. You see the answer to this question is a mere matter of perspective, so if I say it’s a sandwich and you think otherwise, neither of us are wrong. Humans are uniquely diverse, even down to their smallest unit; no two neurons are alike, why would all of us think in the same manner when it comes to perspective?

While still, simultaneously the truth is a real thing as well as lies, like it being inevitable and undeniable that a car cannot run without gas. Some questions are gray so they need only receive gray answers in response.

In conclusion, I believe that in this case specifically, the answer is what you make of it as an individual.

Thank you for your time.

    I believe Salier did an amazing job on this essay. BUT I think a hotdog is a sandwich.
