response to social awareness song

the social awareness song was really nice and it showed how other people live and how much poverty people in other countries. it showed me how selfish we are talking about how we don't have ENOUGH money when there are other countries and families that are poor and cant afford much stuff. there are people that work really hard to provide for their family, and don't even get a decent amount of money to take care of their family. there are kids dieing of starvation, we just waste food. there are a lot of rich people; like celebrities that can help out these country by donating at least a portion of their money. some celebrities actually do.,r:3,s:0

Draft #1

       It is a nice day at the tropical rainforest. The sky is bluer than ever, the grass is greener, and it’s not blazing hot.
       “ahhh what a nice day” said jesster as he stretched in his bed.
He got up and got ready to see his friends. He took a shower. He brushed his teeth. He combed his hair. He made himself some breakfast and was on his way.
        He met up with his friends Sammy, tina, tommy, and mike.
Jesster said hi to all his friends.
 “where’s Oscar? Does he know we are all meeting up?”
“yea. He is sick.”
“oh… well you quys can go on ahead I will make sure he is ok.”
        Jesster walked to Oscar’s house which was rite up the rode. He knocked on the door.
“who is it?” Oscar said
“its jesster!”
“come in the door is open!”
Jesster walked inside the house. Oscar looked bad. His nose was runny, his voice sounded scratchy, his fur went pale, and his forehead was hot. Jesster stood by his bed.
“you look horrible. If you need anything… just call me. I am going to stay here for a while.”
“ok thank you; your so nice…….. can you make me some soup.” He said with a shaky voice.
“ ok coming right up”
        Jesster went in the kitchen to make some soup for Oscar. Jesster made Oscar”s bed, did his laundry, cleaned his room, changed channels on his tv, went food shopping, cleaned Oscars bathroom, dishes, living room, and did everything he possibly could. Jesster got suspicious. Why did Oscar need me to do everything. he thought.
        The next day jesster was sore and couldn’t get out of bed. He had a little bit of errands to do. Oscar came over later that day.
“I just stopped by to say hi” Oscar said looking at jesster. Oscar noticed he was in pain.
“lets meet up with the gang tomorrow.” He said as he tried to scurry out.
“wait Oscar. Im kind of sore from yesterday. I cant move a muscle. I was wondering if you can do my errands for me. I was hoping you can return the favor, since I helped you out the other day when you were sick. Please.”
“uhhhhh… I cant I have a thing” Oscar said nervously as he left.
A while after tina, mike, Sammy,and tommy came over jessters house.
“hi jesster we heard you weren’t in good shape today so we decided to come and help you out. And don’t worry you don’t need to do anything in  return.”
 “I only need the dishes washed, the living room vaccumed and the flowers watered.” Jesster said
“ok we have it under control” tina said
“wow thanks guys.” Jesster said happily
“no problem; that’s what friends are for.”

draft #1

this draft isnt complete because of writing difficulties      
  “ahhhh my new home.” Jesster said as he took a deep breath and taking in the smell of his new home.
        The  tall trees, the tall grass, the moist dirt, the foggy air, and the sounds of nature. This is all new to jesster, he is used to a small space with lots of people. Everything looks as big as in the city. Jesster finds his way through the rainforest to his house.
        “I love it here already” Jesster says to himself.
Jesster pulls out his letter paper and his pen and starts writing to his family about his new home. He puts it in his mail box and starts to watch tv.
**KNOCK KNOCK KNOCK** Jesster opens the door.
“e-e-e-e-exuse me? Who-who-who are you” Jesster says
“Hi how are you I heard you just moved in and I just wanted to introduce myself to you. My name is Chelsea. I am a cheetah, What’s your name.”
“Hi Chelsea my name is Jesster. How did you know I just moved in. how’d you find out so fast?”
“Tommy toucan told Elephant, who told Sid snake, who told Milo monkey, who then told me that  you just moved in.”
“okay thank you” jesster closes the door and goes to the back yard to plant some fruits for him to eat when he runs out of food.
**the next week.**
The fruits have grown in just right.

research assignment #2- animal cruelty

   there are people that abuse animals for many different reasons. some people abuse animals for no reason at all. either way... its wrong!!!!! If you don't know what animal cruelty is... (which you should) it is like child abuse but to animals. animal neglect can actually affect the animal. some examples of animal neglect is... starvation, dehydration, letting his/her collar to grow into his/her skin, having the animal living in extremely harsh conditions... (whether hot or cold) also by not taking your animal to the vet when needed or even just for checkups.
 you need to make sure your animal drinks, eats, lives in a fair envoiroment, and gets the medical attention it needs. Animal neglect can cause incredible pain and suffering to the animal.  
   there are special police for animal cruelty. this police enforcement is called the ASPCA. they specialize in animal cruelty. they take away and lock up the owners of the animals that they dont take proper care of. if there is a case where there is animal cruelty, then they have the right to immediately take away your animal and give it the medical attention it needs and is removed from the enviroment.
   animal cruelty is when a person intentionally causes harm to an animal. intentionally causing harm to an animal is often a sign of psychological problems. most abusers often abuse people/ animals because they have come from a violent household, or  has experienced abuse in their past. they try to get it off their shoulders or mind by abusing other people/animals. which can lead to killing. 122454 animal cruelty complaints were made in the year of 2006. complaints dropped by 20% to 1647.
