well i think the photos are really upsetting because it is really heart breaking because people shouldn’t have to walk a long way just to get water to, wash them selves, have a shower, brush their teeth, ect. I hink that when a home gets built their should always be a water pipe to do all those things.
After ect. it should be think not hink sorry and forgot to use capital letter.
The Long Walk.
My main feeling: My main feeling is shoked because children have to take a huge walk to just get water.
What specific things from the media give me this feeling: Seeing children walk for three hours makes me drop my mouth.
Could I change my feelings at the end: I say I have changed my feeling to being luckey to live in Australia with no water crisis.
The main feeling I felt was how lucky we are, because of what they had to do everyday, colecting water, how far they walk everyday, when we can just turn on a tap.

The facial expressions are what really got me, The tired, painful, dreadful look is what made me feel guilty. The look in her eyes, the hopeful look in her eyes, wishing for someone to make is this way of living alot less harder for her. A wishful face wanting an easier way to survive, and an easier way to live. She wants to live like we live. Like everybody else in the world. You can get all the emotion and feeling from the look in her eyes. Her face may be blank, but her eyes read a different story, a depressing story.
What is the main felling you get from this?
In my opinion I think my main feeling is very sorry for the girl because with me, I only have to walk a couple of steps to brush my teeth and wash my face! But with the girl, it is much more difficault because they have to walk for hours and hours to just brush their teeth or have a shower. It’s crazy!! 🙁

Mostly how far they have to walk everyday and how long it takes. Escpially since this girls only 9. I know I could never walk 3 hours with 2 containers of water in my hands. And sometimes her fingers are numb! Its devastating to see pictures with the young children holding containers of water.
