I was helping my cousin get some work done for the weekend. She was asked to write several paragraphs that would have a good introduction and conclusion. We did this together, I guided her through. Here is the half of it. We were sleepy so the rest we will do tomorrow.
A statement of a situation
More than the typhoon hitting Luzon and some parts of the Visayas last month, a greater disaster is being experienced by the Philippines right now. The government feeds on taxes the people pay. There is tax almost on everything. This tax is collected to be of government use. “Pork Barrel” is given to the senators, congressmen and even the local government. This serves as their budget to be used for projects that would help its people. However some of these officials were accused of corrupting them and using the money for their personal consumption. The sad part is that the money they took happened years ago and just found out now.
A request for action
Filipinos do not deserve this kind of service. The government was all strict about paying the taxes but they are using it the wrong way. I think one way to minimize all these is for them to be more transparent. The people should know where the money the government forcefully takes from them go. This information should be visually presented to the public. This country deserves the truth.
An anecdote or brief narrative
There is this show called The Vampire Diaries that I really love. The protagonist is a high school senior named Ellena. She lost her parents from a car accident. She became miserable until she met Stephan who happened to be a vampire and she fell in love with him instantly.
The most important point or climax
The story becomes more exciting when Stephan’s brother, Damon who is a vampire too, also irresistibly fell in love with Elena. The brothers used to fight all the time and more for the love of one woman. The thrill grows when Elena was transformed to a vampire. I think there is nothing more adventurous than a love triangle of three blood-sucking vampires.
It is relaxing. One thing that could relax my mood is the sound of the ocean. There is this hum of peacefully running water that soothes my ears. It is soft and calm. It seems like it hypnotizes every bad vibe inside me and takes it all away. I also like how it the water sounds when it hits a big rock. The splash makes it realistic and alive. The ocean is very rebirthing and refreshing.
A final quotation to add force to what you have said
I would like to share something from John F. Kennedy. He says, “We are tied to the ocean. And we go back to the sea, whether it is to sail or to watch – we are going back from whence we came.”
1 Corinthians 13:4-8 of the Bible defines Love as something that is patient and kind. It doesn’t envy, boast, or proud. It isn’t rude, self-seeking, easily angered and it keeps no record or wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes and always perseveres. Love never fails.
A summary to make sure you get your ideas across
It is the most definite, exact and perfect definition of love. Love in its form is very complex and sometimes difficult to understand. However, the verse says the right words to truly explain what love should be and for us to experience all the beauty that comes with it.
