Week 5 – Task 2

The ability to gauge a person’s eyes and torture someone to kill them is simply something i can’t comprehend especially when that person is only guilty of being a different race which is regarded less superior. This to me was a stand alone point that I took out of all others, what confuses and saddens me most is that people can be stubborn to think they are so right about something they are willing to kill and torture for it. However, relief came as I read further and saw that the mother took action and had a open casket and his funeral and allowed photographers to photograph her son which had become unrecognizable due to the amount torture he went through. The result was nationally, and had over 50,000 people came to mourn. This to me showed how powerful media can became and what a strong tool it can be.
