Long Walk To Water

  I thought the book was pretty good. It was not the sort of genre I enjoy but the book was still good. There was a lot of twists and unpredictable plots. I can't believe that Marial and Uncle were killed. I also couldn't believe that thousands of people died when crossing the Gile river. I will always remember uncle's seething words to Salva. "One step at a time." Im still confused that did Salva ever meet up with his mother? I think a possible theme of this novel is to be thankful for you have. I think this because Salva didn't have a family, and Nya did not have water. These are some of things people take for granted. That's why I think the theme of this novel is to be thankful for what you have.

Argument essay

This is my argument essay, hope you like it. 😃


  Sixteen year olds, should they be able to vote?

Imagine a world with more people being able to vote. The number of votes
would increase and the polls would sky rocket. Maybe even the president would be different!  I think that the voting age should be lowered to age sixteen.

One reason is if people are allowed to drive at sixteen, possibly putting theirs and others lives in danger, why can’t they vote? I believe that if a sixteen year old has their license, they should be able to vote.

Another reason is there would be a better understanding of who the people want to be president. According to research roughly 138 million people voted last year. If we allowed sixteen year olds and older to vote the voting number would increase to around 200 million. There would be a better understanding of who the people want to be president.

The final reason is that sixteen year olds are mature enough to vote. They work without limits on their hours,and they drive motorized vehicles. When they commit crimes they are charged as an adult. Yet, when it comes to letting them vote in an election the line is drawn.

I know many will say that sixteen year olds are not interested in politics, or do not know enough information to vote. However, voting will promote political participation, and even make some students decide to go into politics.

All in all, why shouldn’t sixteen year old not be able to vote? They drive cars, the voting number would increase greatly, and they are mature enough. So, why not? I think the voting age should be lowered to 16.

Argument hooks

My argument is about that the voting age should be lowered to age 16. Here are a few hooks for my essay,

1)   Imagine a world with 16 year old voting.The number of votes would increase, and the polls would sky rocket. I think the voting age should be lowered to age 16.


2)  What if 16 year old people could vote? Would it be chaos or more powerful? I think the voting age should be lowered to 16.


3) Why does everyone have to wait until they are 18 to vote? I think the voting age should be lowered to 16.


4)  Did you know that in Argentina, Brazil, Austria, Cuba and many more countries, the minimum voting age is 16?

Argument Essay

 The topic for my argument is going to be, the voting age should be lowered to age 16. Im going to talk about how 16 year olds can drive and possibly put their life in danger but they can't vote. I think this is going to be exciting doing lots of research. 😀
