Exploration Two: My First Blog Post from Brianna

        My name is Brianna Moore, I am from Mt. Victory, Ohio. I graduated from Ridgemont high school. My fun fact was that I have been running 10-15 miles a week since I was 12 years old, I got started running because my dad was always running marathons and I grew up around the atmosphere. I remember always being a spectator of the sport before I started running. I ran track in high school and I was the only distance runner on our track team! I was the only person crazy enough to even want to attempt running the 2 mile.  I am a huge Ohio State football fan, I love spending time with my family, listening to music and playing with my Siberian husky Harvey.

My best friends and I at graduation. From lest to right Tori Gaukin,
 Tyler Tripplett, Brianna Moore, and Derek Preston. 

When I started reading chapter one of The Call to Write I realized that writing is everywhere.
The writing that I found interesting and that I thought was kind of unfair was Petitioning the Power by Russell Kim. I thought it was interesting because the characters did something as simple as using their first amendment rights, and they were told not to do this. As human beings their times where people have been denied rights and denied their freedoms, it also showed how easily offended people are. Writing is used to express how you feel without having to talk to people. When we are writing we can say things that we normally wouldn't say.


  1. I also saw this piece as kind of unfair but I thought it was the perfect example to use in order to show us how powerful writing can be. Like you said, about writing let's us say things we normally wouldn't, people were able to fight for their rights through writing and were allowed to write stuff they wouldn't normally say in person.

  2. Yes I found that very unfair as well. Our country was based upon having basic rights like speech for example but we are told to hold our tongues. Everyone wants to believe that we can say what we want when we want but I find that a lot of people cant handle the truth or opinions of others without being offended.
