Melania Trump’s speech appears to have cribbed from Michelle …

My summary:

The wife of Presidential Candidate Donald Trump, Melania Trump, has been accused of stealing the First Lady, Michelle Obama’s speech from 2008. Similarities go on throughout the speech like when Michelle said: “Barak and I were raised with so many of the same values, like, you hard for what you want in life, that your word is your bond and that you do what you say you’re going to do!” was very similar to what Melania later said: “My parents impressed on me the values that you work hard for what you want in life, that your word is your bond and that you do what you say and keep your promise!”

My thoughts on the article:

I know that the two speeches are indeed very similar, and not only are the two parts listed above alike but many more in the speech. And I think that Melania may have heard Michelle’s speech and taken parts of it to improve her own speech, seeing as Michelle’s went so well. But I do feel that what Melania did was wrong and she should apologise personally to Michelle and the people she told the speech. One of the positives in this situation is that Melania obviously admires Michelle and her wise words, which Michelle should take as a compliment.

I woke up, to hear violins screeching, I put my hands over my ears, and it stopped. I screamed, someone was standing in the doorway, they were holding my brothers toy aeroplane, it was flying towards me, I ducked under my duvet. Suddenly a yellow light shone through it, the duvet swept off, and I looked around, I was in our basement, I’d been here before. The little light in the middle of the room was flickering, it was sure to go out soon, just before it did I saw a half eaten finger lying on the cold hard ground…

“Time for bed!” called Mum, Oh no! Last night I had tried to keep my eyes open as long as I could, because every time I closed them I was back there, back in that awful place.

It was midnight, I was so exhausted, not wanting to close my eyes, but I just had to, I just…

I woke up outside an abandoned circus tent, I tried to run but someone grabbed me. They brought me into the tent, surrounding me were clowns, so many clowns. A whistle blew and everyone disappeared, I was all alone, or so I thought…

 

 

 

 

100 word challenge

I woke up in the middle of the night, thunder bashed on the window, lightning flashed through the curtains. I reached over to my wooden bed side table, picked up my candle tray and lit it, the flame was huge, it drew gloomy shadows that rose above me, I ran from the room carrying the candle.

Down the dark cold hallway, I ran to the other bedrooms, first to my brothers, but he was gone. Then to my sisters, she was gone also, I was terrified. I watched my candle and then screamed as the flame flickered and went out…
