Blackout Poem


This poem is the the theme of love. It relates to love because it talks about how “its moments like these” and all the “wonderful things” about love. It really shows how you can love someone and still be yourself. Like it says, “I loved him” yet “found myself” and you will go through hard times in a relationships etc. My poem showed the theme of love, and how you don’t always choose who you love.

kindness starts with you

Social change can happen with the small actions of dedicated individuals. Kindness is something everyone is capable of. I chose this photo because it shows true kindness. You can help people by doing the smallest things. This photo shows an older lady in the rain trying to cross the road. Next to her, is a younger lady is holding an umbrella for her and they are about to cross the road together. It shows how just helping an older citizen cross the road can make an impact. The lady in the photo had the courage to help someone who didn’t ask. It relates to FEC, because Mrs.R had the courage to take a step up and take action to Alma’s question.  She really made a change to the school and gave a major message to the girls as to how they can do anything just as easily as the boys can. The second thing this photo relates to is Gandalf’s quote about how small deeds can keep the evil away. The photo is a small deed which shows true kindness. She may not be keeping evil away, but she is keeping the old lady safe from harm. In addition, a simple act of kindness that can make a huge difference in someone’s life. She probably made the older lady’s day and it may be an act she will never forget. Lastly, the picture relates to the world for many reasons. If you do a simple deed, you never know the impact it may have on another person. I feel that everyone in the world is capable of doing a simple deed too kindness to help someone.

  • My writing goal: My writing goal is to improve my sentence structure. Meaning I need to plan out my sentences more and add commas and periods when needed. I really want to make sure my paragraphs are correctly put together and sound good when I read them.
