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?

  1. You have a lot of good comments here that could lead to good argument essays. Maybe you want to write an argument to the police chief in Ferguson and convince him to convict Darren Wilson. Maybe you want to write an argument addressing the need for stricter gun laws. Maybe you want to write an argument focusing on ways to better train police so this doesn’t keep happening… Lots to think about here!
