A Hunger Games Affinity Space *
On the week 6 Graffiti board,we were asked to write two words that came to mind when we were told about "Emmitt Till", "The Hanging Tree", "Finnick's Secrets" and "Strange Fruit". The first words that came to mind for me were "Horrible World". This seems like such a blunt answer but it can mean so many things. In this case, I was thinking mostly about Finnick's Secrets because that story stuck with me the most. I think it stuck with me because even though it was written about in a fiction book, it relates to our real world. People in different parts of the world really ARE being sold as sex slaves and it just proves how vile and horrible our world is.One question I have about this board is why someone wrote"murder executer"
Your statement is very powerful Patrycja and I appreciate your explanation of it, as well as your literary/real-world connection. Human trafficking IS vile and horrible. Luckily there are a lot of organizations out there that are putting a lot and time and effort in to stopping it.

On this board I think I wrote shocking. I wrote the word right above where it says "Finnick's Secrets" I wrote this because earlier we read about all the secrets that Finnick was suppressing from everyone. All of those secrets, especially the ones about President Snow were shocking. I think what everyone wrote seems self explanatory so I don't have any questions, except for one: Who wrote love and did you also write death? If so why'd you write love death??? Doesn't really make sense.
For this week, I wrote "depression" because the song the Hanging Tree was about a very sad situation. The accused murder committed suicide and asked his loved one to come die with him. It made you think how sad some people's life might have been. One question I have is why the the words "A depressing death" pointed to a tree? Do trees have depressing death as well as humans?
