You can reuse your custom react components multiple times and build them into a tree of components like this:

<Greeting />
  <Greeting />

Notice that the <div> tag contains the Greeting tag as a child, but the Greeting tag contains no children - so it requires the trailing slash (/>) so it can be a "self closing" tag
