Social issue
Social Issue

  • My social issue is on revenge.

  • In My book that I read, Jacob moon gets revenge on Jim Hawkins from something that happened 20 years ago. He ruins Jims whole life by framing him.

  • Revenge is among everyone in todays world. Most crimes that happen or gang fights that happen is because of revenge. 50% of criminals that get out of jail go back to jail within two years. 25% of the 50% go back for violence or revenge. This shooting happened because of revenge. These two kids were bullied and were the outcast of their school.

  • This shooting happened because of revenge. These two kids were bullied and were the outcast of their school.


  • I think revenge is not the answer. If we forgive and forget everyone will be happier.

Tennis shoes and the feathered serpent


    Tears the mind can't tell are true, Pain the heart can't share.Anger wrapped up in deceit, It's more than I can bear.The hurt and torture deep inside, The scalding pain of hate.The sadness deep inside my soul, That anger did create.The anger causes pain inside, Too deep to understand.And the pain, in turn, will cause, More malice to my hand.The scourge I lay upon you now, You surely cannot break.This curse will last for on and on, You've made a grave mistake.
