Personal Essay
Topic- If I Could Change the World
If I could change the world I would get rid of cancer, drugs/alcohol, and cheaters. I have personal reasons for this list, and not so personal reasons.

First, I would get rid of cancer because it hurts a lot of people. People everyday suffer from cancer, not only the people dealing with it themselves but families too. Some people don’t even know that they have cancer, and then it takes them away from their family, friends, and life. In my own family we have had more than three people have cancer, and one of them was my grandpa, Papa. He has had caner 5 times, and every time it gets worse. My mom has come home crying some days because my Papa called her and was having a rough time, or tell her about a new battle he has to go through. I hate to see her cry, and I know she hates seeing her father so weak. Sometimes I just don’t understand how God can let such a horrible thing happen to such innocent people. They have families and friends just like everyone else, and then God decides, “Oh let me take them away from their life riigghhttt.... NOW!” I know that this is not why God does it or even how, but that’s just how I feel sometimes.

I’d also get rid of drugs and alcohol. In my opinion drugs and alcohol help absolutely NO ONE! People overdose, die, beat their families, and do other things all because they were smoking crack, shooting heroin, or even just getting drunk. Most people don’t even understand the amount of damage drugs and alcohol can cause. A person I know is without a brother and father. Her dad came home one night so drunk that he beat his son to death. They were the only family she had considering her mom had left when she was little. She was put in an orphanage and got adopted 3 months later. I never saw her after that day. Drugs are, in my opinion, worse than drinking. They have made people do really crazy things like eat other’s faces off and worse....
