Hi my name is Lindsay and I am in 8th grade. In writing class we had to choose a topic that we are passionate about for our service learning unit. I chose dog fighting as my topic because I believe that dog fighting should be stopped. It is a cruel and bloody sport.
This is my opening to my essay about dog fighting that was inspired by Oogy and Sarge’s stories:
I sat with discomfort, feeling uneasy thinking of these innocent dogs and trying to imagine what they went through. Their lives were filled with pain and abuse from their tragic past. Oogy and Sarge, two of the very few, chosen to get a second chance of life. These dogs finally know what it feels like to be loved and feel safe. Just wishing to forget their gruesome past. These dogs were turned on by their own race, thinking they were the enemy, when it was really humans. They turned these dogs into war machines just for entertainment, greed and destruction. These dogs became victims of a bloody sport called dog fighting.
Hope you liked my opening for my essay:)
