There are 1.3 Billion people in the world who live on less than $1.25 a day, this is significantly less than what we spend in one meal. 22,000 children die every day due to poverty related illnesses.

Rhetorical Analysis I alter use in the body paragraphs in order to show how Andy ( a lower class character) is an example of “heredity” since he takes over his late father’s position at the coal mine. In other words, the way I use quotes in my Rhetorical Analysis demonstrate that I have learned to take in consideration all parts of the quotes. Even though I have improved in considering all parts of the quote when using them as supporting evidence, I actually got to notice that I make arguments that are more than what I can possibly support with evidence from the text. This issue was pointed out to me in the comments left in turnitin.com by Dr. Danner. This problem in my writing was pointed out in my Rhetorical Analysis when I wrote, “under
