Long Walk To Water

My thoughts on the book Long Walk To Water by Linda Sue Park were that I thought the book brought a little more attention to the water shortage in South Sudan. One possible theme for Long walk To Water is to take life one step at a time.

At the end of the  book I couldn't believe Salva's family was still alive.
I wonder what was the cause for the deaths of Salva's brothers.
I could't believe that even though Salva was a Dinka he worked on wells with the Nuer.
After Salva left Sudan I knew that he would return.
I was surprised when Salva finds out most of his family was alive.
I still don't understand the purpose of killing Uncle.
I will always remember that many people died in the war in south Sudan.
I loved it when Salva found his father and knew he was still alive.
I was upset when Marial died.
Before I read this book I did not know their were tribes called Dinka and Nuer were fighting in South Sudan.

Argumentative Explanations

For my argument I chose to write on the topic of: Should people become vegetarians? I chose the side of, no people shouldn't become vegetarians.

I chose this topic because I love animals, and if they die of natural causes their carcasses are just left their to rot. If animals die of old age they will suffer in their old age, so if people harvest this animal when they start showing signs of old age and suffering people need to put that animal out of its misery. People need not waste that animals meat by leaving it to rot, they could butcher the animal and eat it.

claim- People should not become vegetarians.

hook1- Do you like big Sunday breakfasts with bacon or sausage? Vegetarians don't eat meat so they wouldn't be able to have the full Sunday breakfast.

hook2-Imagine getting invited to go out to eat with your friends and having a great time, but having to turn down the invitation because you are a vegetarian and they all want to go to a steakhouse.

Hook3- Imagine living your life without bacon, sausage, steak, burgers, all kinds of meat. This is how vegetarians live their entire lives.

Hello, World!

Hi! I'm Caitlynn and I think that this is neat that Mr. Croy is making us make a blog for class.

I know nothing about making a blog.

My favorite subject in school is math. I also like reading, but I don't like doing questions or papers on books I read.

I am in the advanced classes in school.

I love to write stories at home on my computer. I have some stories I'm currently working on that is already four pages long.
