|My team and I at a Explores Competition|
In chapter 1 of The Call to Write what stuck out to me the most was the "in the office" section. In this section they had a list of emails written by and to the director of FEMA back during the hurricane Katrina. What was interesting to me was how most of the emails did not involve how they were going to help the disaster, but instead talking about how they should 'roll up there sleeves to look like they are working harder." In this case their reason for writing was to let each other know the best way they can appear to the public to envelop a sense of confidence in them. Because of my involvement with law enforcement I understand the importance of not only effectively completing the task assigned. But that keeping up a professional appearance is just as important.
