Writing Exercise

The speech I chose to write about is the Humanitarianism speech.  This speech means a lot to me because it represents the human aspect of an issue where we take more of a business standpoint sometimes disregarding the human aspect of it.  I think humanity has taken a step forward from what it was a few decades ago.  A direct quote i liked was "Humanitarianism occurs where the political has failed or is in crisis"  I liked this quote because it really shows how strong humanitarianism is.

A country I am sincerely concerned about is Ukraine.  Over the past few months a lot has happened there, the Ukrainian people overthrew their president hoping of reforming to a Western state.  This provoked Russia to intervene.  Russia invaded Crimea, the eastern part of Ukraine, now they have annexed Crimea to Russia.  This is very concerning because there was almost no opposition to Russia annexing Crimea which leads me to believe Russia will not stop there, I think they will go deeper into Ukraine provoking the West to intervene, causing another world war, in my opinion.  I think this is why we should get involved early so we don't have another world war.

  1. I wrote about Ukraine too , and i found your research very informative!

  2. I didn't even know what was going on in Ukraine. I would be concerned too.

  3. Things going on in Ukraine should be taken seriously and can affect the world, and can even start a war.
