Blog 2

Format: Magazine

Audience: Young kids who’s parents are in jail

Purpose: To argue that kids are suffering today when they have parents in prison

Effectiveness: This magazine effectively achieves its purpose of showing that kids suffer when they don’t have a parent in the home. when the child does not have a parent in the home it limits the child’s growth. It is very scary for a child to go see their parent behind bars and not able to be apart of their child’s life. This picture shows that the young boy is sad and is wanting his father with him. The father looks very sad also. This shows that both the parent and the child is affected when the parent is in prison.

Child obesity

I sit in the dark
press my cheek to the cool tiles
trying not to cry
as you sleep soundly
the rasp of my breath
is overwhelmed
the refrigerator

can’t you see how much I’m hurting?
oh my god, I can’t even tell you…
this is too hard.
how do I stop something so strong?
I need to try to fight this!
I need help.
