Anticipation Guide

  • Every person has a right to food, shelter, and safety. Agree, why I feel this way is because, if you don’t have food than you will starve and might die. You have to have shelter because, if you don’t you will be cold, and might freeze to death in the winter. You should have safety because, if you live by a forest than you don’t want to be in danger, you want to be in a warm place not a cold place.
