Small, cozy room where every human believes it is Paradise. One step in the room and my body decides to let everything go. As my body falls on the cushion of the bed. I walk into a dream world where I can do anything I want. Peeking out the window I see noone. All alone just like I hope in the reality. One step outside the house. I go to my favorite restaurant. Serving myself a huge burrito stash with meat, beans, rice and vegetables. Running around crazy like a young child who ignores the law. Soaring thru the sky and looking down the beautiful ocean. As Clouds keeps hitting my face and it smells
like cotton candy. One step on the ground. Traveling places to places.Country to Continents. Hoping I would never wake up. This is Paradise. Of course, We, the people, would want this in reality but sooner or later it will be time to wake in just a snap. 2.1.10 Practice: Complete Your Assignment Practice Assignment English 11 Sem 2 (S4399779) Benji Martinez Points possible: 30 Date: ____________
Create a short outline for an essay about the causes and effects of the civil rights movement. Your claim doesn't have to be argumentative, but it should say something that isn't obvious — something that needs to be backed up with reasons and evidence. In later lessons, you'll use your outline and research to draft your essay. Then you'll present that essay to the class.
