Specific Purpose Statement: To persuade my audience to get involved and to help stop the genocide in Darfur


I stand before you a white male, who has not experienced much of this world; I am but fifteen years old. I have little knowledge of our societies and how we work yet it is obvious how the political powers think and how they operate the world.

I bear this burden, I feel shamed, I am but fifteen years old. I feel shamed for I have not done everything possible to stop genocide, I have just lived my life, spoiled, wealthy, easy, while others on the other side of the world struggle to survive. I sponsor children in Darfur, but how do I know that the money reaches the children’s community and not the bank accounts of the countries corrupt leaders, the simple answer is, I don’t know, but I feel there is nothing else I can do, except protest and push people into helping our African brothers and sisters so that the world’s greatest powers will end this genocide, for if they don’t act,...
