The Power of One

It has long been debated by historians which time in our 20th century worlds history was a more heroing or more horrific trauma. Some say it was the Holocaust that more or less caused World War II or the tragedy of Apartheid that started in thru the late forties seemingly on the heels of our worse globally sparsed out battles. The character in this remarkable film lived through and experienced both. He was pissed on by young wanna be Nazis and beaten almost to death by solders during he exploitation of Africa. He saw the forbidden love of his life die in front of him and was forced to watch his mentor eat manure and lived to tell about it. This film contained some breathtaking cinematography awe inspiring music and jaw dropping characterations. What this film did not see was a dry eye in the audience. This hard headed 35 year old bachelor was sobbing at times as I watched this astonishing tale unfold. This movie was recommended to me by a cute young girl named Kara. I’m not sure if I want to thanks her or curse her for recommending this film. It brought out the full gauntlet of emotions and made me both livid and enriched at the same time. I went from rage to tears and back again during this two hour Epic film. It is appropriate that this movie was released in 1992 because I graduated high school in that same year. Well I feel as if I gradated to a new level of apparition and received an equivalent of four years of education after watching this astonishing cinematic masterpiece. Grade A+

A note from an editor!

Hi Matthew,

Thank you for the time and effort you put into this piece, especially on a Saturday morning. I can tell you definitely took good notes of everything that was going on during the event!

We still have some work to do before this piece is ready to print. Your piece has a lot of information, but it doesn’t sound like a news article. What was the point of his speech/presentation? Why was he addressing this audience? What is Vanguard? What does the company do – who does it serve? You spend a lot of time narrating (for example, how he was injured), but did not report on the purpose of the event. You can maybe mention his appearance/joking about it in a sentence or two, but do not take several paragraphs to do so. Also, I like how you mentioned where the name “Vanguard” comes from.

There are a lot of spelling errors in this piece – make sure you proof read each sentence carefully.

I know I am getting back to you a little later I hoped, and I’m sorry about that! But if you have time tonight, please go through my suggestions and try to rework your piece. You can send me what you have tonight/tomorrow morning. Please bring a copy of it to the meeting tomorrow and we will discuss it further from there.

Once again, thanks for your hard work and promptness! Remember this is a learning process, and we are all part of the Waltonian team!

Talk to you soon!
