Exploration 8- Haia

I think my favorite writing that I have done all semester was from my first essay I did. It was really personal so it was really easy to write. I really like the beginning of my essay because I described what autism was before even talking about my topic, which is over ABA therapy. It let people be aware of autism and what you could do to work through it. "Autism is the fastest growing serious developmental disability in the United States, affecting one in sixty-eight children and one in forty-two boys." The first sentence in the essay describes in detail who is affected by autism. And then I transitioned into talking about one the methods of comprehensive behavioral early interventions.

One topic that I think people should be more aware about is poverty. People don't realize that it is happening everywhere, and not just specific countries. People also assume that some people chose to be homeless, when  in reality it is so hard to find a job. Especially when you have no money at all, it is hard to look "appropriate" for interviews. There are multiple people all over who don't have as much money as it seems like. Some people may have it only bad sometimes, while others have it the worst all the time. It happens to everyone everywhere, even in the richest areas because it's so easy to hide.

  1. It is unfortunate that in today's world there are so many homeless even though we as a nation are well advanced. Though many homeless people are in a tough situation, I personally believe that America is full of opportunities and organizations that provide special help to lift them off their feet and back into society, which is a great step towards solving this problem. I truly cant speak for those and understand the harship of being homeless, but I can only imagine the struggle and day-to-day obstacles that they must overcome in order to survive. All around I agree with your statement about the homeless in other nations, but I personally believe that here in America are many organizations that can aid to this problem, its just a matter of giving it your all to achieve a better life.

  2. Poverty is a really good topic to talk about. It is a serious problem and the United States has came a long way in the last few decades. The picture that you chose was really fitting and touched me. Great job!

  3. I agree that people should definitely be more aware of this topic. I also really liked the picture that you chose because it helps to make people want to really help, which we all should.

  4. I definitely think that poverty is a big issue that needs more attention. I really like your picture because it is very powerful and shows the true result of malnutrition due to no money.

  5. I like how moving your exploration. Very well written. I feel as if many people don't think poverty is around us due to where we grew up and how blessed we are but it is very eye opening. Also, your picture was very touching..all I could think about was how? why? how are we going to change that? All that went through my mind was what if that was my child?
