Task 1 (Pathos/Logos)
18 years ago I was hit by Dengue fever. One night when my mom and I were talking about how I was doing at school, blood started dripping from my nose. In total panic and fear painted on their faces, they rushed me to the hospital. After a few hours the doctor found out that I had Dengue fever and that I would need blood transfusion. Fortunately, there wasn’t any blood shortage in the hospital. I was able to recover in a matter of weeks and got back on my feet.
According to American Red Cross, every 2 seconds someone in the U.S needs blood. Although an estimated 38% of the U.S. population is eligible to donate, less than 10% actually do each year. Won’t you do something to help a person in need? By donating blood, you are saving someone’s life. Please, don’t delay and visit the nearest blood donation station accessible to your area. A child’s life might be in danger and your blood could save him.
