Heroism - An Essay By Alex
Song: Atlantis (Extended)
Group: Two Steps From Hell
Alex started this essay for his English class last Friday night...
and he finished it last Saturday.
All I had done to it was to correct a few typos...
delete a sentence or two (extraneous information)...
and had him add a sentence or two to fill out a paragraph.
Everything else was all Alex.
He had completely researched and typed it out before I had looked at it.
I merely did some final simple editing
(while teaching him why).
Alex just keeps improving his writing skills with each essay he writes.
Alex already had a good idea about heroism...
as I often speak about this topic.
It is one of the basic concepts a boy needs to thoroughly understand...
