Writing Argument

I am addressing the teenagers ages 14-19 of America today, this is my intended audience because we are the future. The situation in my argument is…, Are worse events such as the Ferguson event happening around America but aren’t being reported by the mainstream media? I was going to attempt to bring this argument into social media since that is how the Ferguson event was brought about.

The purpose of my argument is to make a point, is the regular mainstream media reporting these events or do the people have to make the difference? I want the audience to feel empowered and feel that if we we do this together, we can make a difference around the world. I believe if we can do this the world will be a better and more peaceful place for our children to grow and live.

My main point is to really grasp a feel for the other events that are going on that the mainstream media isn’t reporting and that social media is. So my question is, Are their worse events occurring unsaid by the mainstream media?

I employ to persuade my audience by making them feel a certain way about how the mainstream media is sugar-coating the horrible events happening in America. The current events happening today is fitting my audience and purpose.

Point of View- AP English

“Our children are our future so whenever any of our children – black, white, brown, yellow, or red are taken from us unnecessarily, it causes a never-ending pain that is unlike anything I could have imagined experiencing.”

I believe that yes, our children are the future no matter what color we are, we are all human beings that deserve the same opportunities. It is a shame that these horrible events have happened in today’s society. I agree that gun violence has gone too far and I believe that we need to address the situation for the ones who shoot the guns. Its not okay for an officer to shoot an unarmed 18 year old and get away with it and be on paid administrative leave. Guns don’t kill people, people kill people. This is only a slap on the wrist to the officer, hes not being punished, he is on vacation. If this keeps happening in the world we will end up being in a war zone. Yes maybe some of the kids are not on the right track in life but there is no reason to shoot and kill a person. Why are we killing the children of our future?

Who am I as a reader?

  I would say I like to read when the topic interests me, I read true stories about a life experience, those are my favorite. Non-fiction books and stories would also be a top interest for me. I am very open to learning new things and reading to better my understanding about what is happening in the world around me.
