A Hunger Games Affinity Space *
I also didn't write anything for this graffiti, but I do understand that this suppose to show girl power and the will to survive.
I agree. Girls today have to really try to show girl power. This girl power not only makes them courages but turns them into a grown woman. A girl wouldn't have the power or courage to do this, but a woman does.
I totally agree Leslie.
I wrote the really long green one on the lower left side. I wrote that because there is always someone controlling you or your life. I want to know why someone drew the three face in this. Also, why is there 400 lb. woman died on plane? I like how there are photos of inspirational people in the background.
I agree that there is always someone trying to control your every move. I feel like it is better to have the person experiment what they want in their own way.
I wrote " 400 l.b. woman dies on a plane" because we all had to think of an interesting event that we heard about during the week and that peace of news really caught my attention when I heard about it. A question I have is why did someone write "Let Me Put My Pistol Up".
I wrote "difference" because all the women on the wall made a difference in their community
Ya thats true all the women up there made a difference in their community that resulted in positive effects. They are all women not men that shows that it doesn't matter what gender you are or what race it doesn't matter you could make a difference.
I totally agree with this. All of these women/girls are inspiring and strong.
Yeah that is very true Wary because these women are inspiring and very helpful people.
I remembered writing no peace be because I thought that everything that was going on with Amanda Todd and Malala was just terrible and shows how violent this world is.
For this Graffiti wall I didn't write anything, but I would have written "pain" for Malala because of all the pain she has been through trying to fight for woman just to have rights.And one question I have is why don't woman have rights in Pakistan?
The reasoning you have for the quote that you would have written is very well explained
I also did not have a chance to write on this graffiti wall either but I understand that no matter what your gender is you can still make a change.
I totally agree with your idea about gender. This also goes for age, and appearance.
I also agree with you and Glenda about how gender should have no affect on a persons will to make a change
In week 3 what I wrote was " It doesn't matter if your small or big you still have a purpose in life". The reason I wrote this is because for example Malala shes just a normal kid like you and me. She's small, people might think ahhh she can't do anything, but that's not true. Malala is making a change that is helping thousands of people in her country. Especially women that can't do much because of the rules like they can't go to school. But Malala shes making a change that will result in a smile on a persons face. She's small and look at what shes doing. She proving a lot of people wrong. So no matter how small you are you could do something big.
My question is why did someone put "Let me put my pistol up". Is it because of what the persons been through?
It's a line from a documentary we watched in class, unfortunately I forgot the name of it D:
That was from the documentary we had watched that was filmed in Chicago. I believe Melissa decided to write that.
I didn't write anything here. I would have written "Changes can be made in their own ways." I would have written this because all the women on there made a change to many people in their own ways.
I wrote "We live in a bubble" because I think that some people don't really know whats going on around them. We may be informed about things that others WANT us to know but we might not even realize the truth since all of the media is usually from one perspective. In my opinion, we may think that we know whats happening in the world around us but, like Mrs. Alikakos said before, here in the USA we sort of NEED to have a happy ending so we don't know the other horrors going on in the world around us. My question about this is why did someone write "salmonella in peanut butter" ???
I think your right but i also think that its not just that people don't know whats going on its that some people choose to ignore it.
On week 3 I wrote Amanda Todd because she is a girl who took her own life because people bullied her. Her story is really sad and that's why I wrote her name. Amanda Todd's story was on the news a lot and when our teacher told us to write about an event we heard I automatically thought of her.
"Just because it doesn't happen where you live doesn't mean it doesn't exist" Is what I had written on that weeks' "Graffiti Wall" I wrote this thinking that in our daily life its unusual (For us) to see crime daily and people dying on the streets, yet we hear that it does happen near us in our own state. So that shows that even if you don't witness it, it still occurs quite often.
I wrote "Why are so many people dying?" I think what I wrote is pretty self explainable. The number of people dying everyday is outrageous and crazy, I cannot believe that so many people die everyday and every minute of everyday. I don't believe in violence and I strongly believe that people should not die no matter what situation. All of my prayers go out to Maria's family and Maria. My question is; When is the violence going to stop?
Who knows, but hopefully it is very soon. We don't want any of this happening anymore.
Very true To many people are getting killed daily there needs to be something done or this world will be a massacre.
I wrote "Rebellious" for this week's graffiti. I wrote this because all of the women in the graffiti has done something that fought against what was the usual for some peoples lives. Instead of keeping quiet and not saying anything, they defy the rules and did what they believed. My question is: why don't more people stand up for what they believe is right?
To answer your question: they're scared. That's why there's only a few people that do stand up for their beliefs. You know why they do it? They have guts which is something most of us don't have.

I wrote "Nothing gold can stay". I wrote this because in the book "The Outsiders" Johnny along with the rest of the gang (with the exception of Ponyboy until later on) are deprived of their childhood's because of the way they live. They have to grow up faster like how Malala and some of these other kids have to. The saying means that you can't always have a child's perspective of the world.
This week we were all writing about events that were happening all around the world, quotes from books read in our class, and I wrote "Hurricane Sandy" because at the time that we did this Hurricane Sandy had just occurred. This is a very important event and that is why I wrote it.
I wrote "stop the violence and killings" on behalf of all the people violently abused and murdered. I think the world needs to come together and cause a cease fire so the hatred and pain can leave and we have a peaceful world.!
I agree with you. There are just way too many killing in this world, especially in the United States.People should definitely become more peaceful.
I wrote "no peace" on this graffiti wall. The reason being is because in the interrupters we were shown how life is in the toughest parts of Chicago, and how there is always shootings and gang fights. The fact that a 12 year old kid has to go through this every day and can't live in peace and harmony is just sad. They can't ever have fun, because there are much more important things to worry about. And at such a early age, I believe this makes a great impact on how this one kid is going to live when he/she gets older. And it sadly, it most likely wont be in peace.
Yea it is pretty sad knowing that theres a bad side to chicago.
On this blog post I wrote "is silence really golden?", I wrote this because in a couple of these pictures (Katniss, Malala)because in both of their situation their lives would have been normal or their normal and they could have gotten through life without all of the things that are happening to them now, but they didn't stay silent and they both gave people hope and a will and that's what golden really is.
I wrote sometimes you dont kniw whats going on in your own neighborhood because its a true statement.You could live down the street from a shooting and you wouldnt even know.Its lack of communication and the news people.
On this wall I wrote PEETA! I love him so much I hope that him and katniss stay together in the last hunger games book. And that he doesn't end up killing her.
What does this have to do with any of the pictures?
Well one of the pictures does have Katniss ...
This is weird.. it's a book.I also agree with Brian, that this has nothing to do with the pictures.
On this day I was not able to write anything but i would have wrote "change can be made by anyone that chooses the right choices". This means that anyone has the chance to make the change but the right choices need to be made first.
I wrote "let me put my pistol up" because this line in the documentary was what caught my attention the most.Its shows what some people have to worring about day by day. some people are ignorant to these type of situations and dont reliaze that some kids cant even walk down there own block without being scared.Some neighborhoods have violence all the time. theres crime scenes,fights,drive by shooting,etc.The man in the documentary was on probation i belive and he had to put his pistol away before he left his house.people have to be open minded to these kind of things that just because they have it tough doesnt mean someone else isnt going through a tough situation.
Flamo was hillarious. But he was not only funny, he also taught all of us a lesson about the world he grew up in.
I wrote 'Salmonella in Peanut Butter' because, here, we had to write about major events we've heard about, and I wrote salmonella in peanut butter, which is about the salmonella contaminated tin millions of jars of peanut butter ( mentioned on CNN Student News ).
In this graffiti wall, we had to write about major events that we heard about. I wrote "400 lb woman dies on plane". I wrote this to tell people to watch their weight. If you are that large, it will be pretty hard to live a good life. Daily chores will be harder and it will be easier to get sick.
I wrote Carl Azuz on this blog photo. The topic was basically events around the world and every morning we wacth CNN Student News and Carl Azuz always imforms us with the world we live in.
I wrote "violence" on this poster because every single one of these pictures are related and or caused by violence.
