First Draft Worksheet Instructions: Copy and paste the following text into a document or create a document that contains the same information. Using your essay in response to the unit's writing prompt, complete the following steps to improve your essay. Introduction Insert your introductory paragraph. Include any revisions your instructor asked you to make. Imagine you are minding your own business with your life, possibly taking care of your family at home or doing work at your school or job. When all of a sudden, there is a bright white flash and the sound of a large explosion. There has been an atomic bomb dropped right in the area in which you are located. Although this may sound very scary and frightening, this is what happened to many people during the dropping of the bombs in Hiroshima and Nagasaki. It is estimated that around 150,000 people in Hiroshima and 75,000 people in Nagasaki were killed or wounded because of these bombs. The survivors of these bombs will always remember what happened and the country of Japan will never be the same again. The human rights issue in my novel is nuclear warfare, which is a very serious and hazardous topic that greatly affects all countries and the people who live there by putting them in danger. Idea Development Write the body and conclusion of your essay in the space below. There are many important facts to know about nuclear warfare so that you understand how hazardous and harmful they are. A nuclear weapon is an explosive device that derives its destructive force from nuclear rather than chemical reactions. It is important that you know what a nuclear weapon is so that you are more informed about the potential danger that it has over a country. Temperatures of tens of millions of degrees Celsius develop in the immediate area of a nuclear detonation. This fact tells us about one of the many bad after-effects of nuclear denotations and emphasizes how dangerous nuclear weapons are. Many people want to create a “nuke free” world, however there some obstacles and challenges that we are going to face when trying to abolish the use of nuclear weapons. Champions and critics of "zero nukes" both say, the greatest obstacle lies in the regional clashes that keep the world on edge and nations building nuclear arsenals. This means that we need to come together and try to get through this obstacle together. We have to learn how to get through these clashes that cause nations to build arsenals. “Realists” say that countries like Russia, China, and India would resist giving up their arsenals

for different reasons. They also argue that such countries as Germany and Japan would be tempted to build their own if they saw the U.S. moving to dismantle its weapons. In order to overcome this obstacle of some countries resisting to give up their arsenals, we have to come together as an entire nation and work to develop will to overcome this nationalistic concern.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
