Is Your Food As Important As The Worker Preparing It?
Working in a factory is exhausting and can be dangerous. A slaughterhouse has something called a assembly line which is also located in factories. The job of a assembly line can be dangerous; workers are tired and holding sharp tools at their fingertips, one wrong move could result in major consequences. "The line is so fast there is no time to sharpen the knife. The knife gets dull and you have to cut harder. That’s when it really starts to hurt, and that’s when you cut yourself." The workforce is a dangerous and unfair place and that needs to change.
The slaughterhouse is also a very unfair place to work. You could be scheduled to work a 7 hour day and then right when its time for you to get off they tell you that you have to work 2 more hours. That is just rude and disrespectful to that worker. One worker stated; “The last hour of a regular shift is hard. You’re tired and it’s hard to concentrate. Then they tell you to work two hours overtime. That’s when it gets downright dangerous.“ People need to stop worrying about when the food will be ready and start thinking about where it came from and the safety of the people who produced it.
Dear Future Americans
October 22nd, 1918
Dear future citizens of America,
This is Alice Paul the woman who tried to win back her rights and was successful. I have some advice for you to help make our country a fair and happy place. If you take my advice you will succeed but it won't happen right away, things take time and you just need to believe in yourself.
First off people are going to disagree with you and go against you but all you can do is fight for what you believe in. Just like I did, I believe that women and men should be treated equally so I fought. I even went to jail because I didn't give up. In jail I was so determined that I refused to eat and since the government didn't want a murder on their shoulders they force fed me. You may suffer but you have to keep fighting for what you believe in.
My second piece of advice is to persuade people to be on your side. Let me tell you not everyone is going to agree with you. Did you know that there was a woman named Carrie Chapman Catt the was not a supporter of me or the things I was trying to do. She tried to stop me many times, but in the end I was able to persuade her. She even gave me her chair and started standing when I was released from jail. She knew I had suffered and she realized that I was doing what was best for the citizens of America. You can persuaded people to get what your fighting for.
Lastly, never let anyone tell you can't because your a woman, man, child, boy, girl, etc because you can. Just because I was a woman people didn't think that I could win back women's rights. You can't let it stop you. It didn't stop me because I knew not all women were mean't to to be at home taking care of the children, cooking, and cleaning. So if you're a teen, boy, girl, man, woman, who cares, never doubt yourself and never let anyone tell you that you can't, because I know that you can.

There are gas masks to help for the new weapon called poisonous gas. During a battle or attack soldiers use the gas to kill their enemies. The gas enters the persons eyes, nose, mouths, and throats and kills them within a matter of minutes.
Another new weapon is a hand grenade. The hand grenade is usually thrown at "advancing troops" to help the soldiers efficiently win the attack or war that is going on at the time.
Lastly there is a new weapon called barbed wire which is sharp and hard to cross. Barbed wire was used a lot in trenches to keep the enemy out and the wire could sometimes be 30 to 40 meters wide.
