Key West is a tourist area with small buildings scattered everywhere; the amount of wind and rain managed to destroy nearly 1,200 buildings and the remaining buildings were left in rough conditions (Atkins, Katie). With the strength of Irma, as seen below, the prevention of the occurrence could not be

Jack: “Today is such a beautiful day, almost as beautiful as the day I first saw you.”
On the USS Indianapolis, a tragic incident happened on the sinking. Soldiers lost their lives in many ways. The torpedo, drowning, sharks, dehydration, starvation, and drinking saltwater. Only three hundred and seventeen men survived the catastrophe. Today I am writing an essay about Why they died and how they could have prevented it.
While neither myself, nor my group members, could possibly imagine one another out in the fields of mills working hard to create weapons of mass destruction, it is truly what is represented through our words and pictures. Some may present the argument that we lack creativity within our posters design, my group members and myself will counter that statement, by stating that our posters presents persuasiveness and meets proper advertisement criteria. The point of our poster, is to encourage students in Mills High where it is not much of place to build one’s mind, but more of an environment to build one’s weapons. The thing that stands out most in this poster is our submarine.
