If you are destined to die in a small trafﬁc accident, you shall.
People survive earthquakes, ﬂoods, shootings and ﬁres…to die of heart failure two years later.
This has been true through times past and is certainly true in our world today. First, in the sense that sometimes we are the aggressors and, second, in the sense that we are all still human—and these things make us the enemy. The world exists in and of itself, and the world has changed in many ways since the so-called ‘big bang’ put this universe into existence.
It seems that people are always looking for reasons to ﬁght each other. In a civil war, brother ﬁghts brother, friend ﬁghts friend and neighbor ﬁghts neighbors. These are groups of people who have the same backgrounds. Now, even if we weren’t being aggressors in this situation, does that mean that we aren’t the enemy? It is only for the last few thousand years that humans (let alone humans actually deﬁned as “citizens”) have held enough sway to commit any sort of changes upon it.
And if you don’t like what you’re seeing in the book, you have to get a different book. Magicians pull birds out of the costumes of barely dressed girls and stuff. If we are ﬁghting each other, we are the enemy.point of view is in the second paragraph but the introduction leads naturally to it; (2) excellent use of vocabulary and transitions (ﬁrst, next, now); (3) strong organization, moving from local to foreign wars and repetition of “we are the enemy” makes overall essay stronger; (4) strong and passionate conclusion relates directly to the writing prompt. I do not agree with the statements that one should never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world and that it is indeed the only thing that ever has.
You can’t just push a button to get a different book. People watch VERY closely, hoping that something besides a bird will tumble out, and they miss it when the magician’s real assistant is going through the audience and picking pockets. It makes you focus on what they want you to see while bad things go on and they’re stealing your brain, your money and your life.2 (Ace the SAT Writing Even If You Hate to Write): Done well: (1) some support for his/her opinion; (2) strong analogy (television as a magician) in the conclusion; Needs: (1) uses vague terms; (2) spends far too much time off topic; (3) repetition of terms like “book”; (4) multiple fragmented sentences. Somewhere in the world, it seems, there are always people at war. We want our families and friends to be safe and happy. The world, that is this space we occupy that is also occupied by non-living and/or non-human things, exists not solely in relation to human beings.Shifts to and from ice ages to warmer epochs cause enormous changes in the world—from sea levels to the distribution of life itself upon this planet.Time itself changes the world—and with time, those natural planetary actions that come about with time: erosion, volcanic disturbances, seismic activities, wind patterns, all contribute to changing this world.It’s interesting to realize that what was true of society in general 200 years ago still applies today, even though the society that we live in is so radically different than that in which Mr. I think that getting that degree and being able to support yourself and following a career path takes quite a bit of willpower.On the negative side, when you read about crime, the perpetrators are often in their 20’s, which indicates that will more than judgment is the motivating factor.The idea of having a choice in one’s destiny implies a hand in the forming of one’s destiny—but humans have no hand, have no say, in who we are born to, how we are born, with what faculties we are born with, where we are born and when we come into this world.All these determining factors are put into play without one single choice being given to the human concerned.I would hope that your life experience enables you to think creatively and see many paths that will take you to the same goal.By the time a person is in his 40’s he has experienced a lot, both good and bad, and can anticipate the potential outcome of his actions much better than he could at 20 or 30 years old. As a newly licensed driver, I know that while my insurance rates reﬂect the willfulness of 20 year olds rather than the better judgment used by 40 year old drivers, who have some of the lowest insurance rates.I think the mute button is the single most important contribution to the world since chocolate. Maybe in local discount stores where the noise level is so high it’s mind-numbing. Sometimes you have to go to the library or the book store to get one.I’d like to see the mute button improved quite a bit, though. At the very least, you have to get up to get it, instead of switching it on from your chair. On the most basic levels, we are the same - humans.
