Summaries on Blog Posts – Assignment 7

10 years after 9/11

In this article the author talks about how she handled the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks which comes to my surprise that she handled it fairly okay without being discriminated against. She writes as if shes writing in her own journal which falls under the journal entry/personal reflection type f blog. She also explains how she feels about the US as her home and how much she enjoyed her time having school in New York. Then a few years after shes done with her education, she returns back to Pakistan. She says that Pakistan has changed drastically since after the 9/11 attacks. When she left her country, Pakistan was peaceful and when she returned, it has been filled with suicide bombers, military people and even people being held hostage. She says that the US has rebuilt their city after the attacks and yet Pakistan has to take the blame or anyone muslim for that matter and still have to go through such disaster. This comes to explain that terrorism can’t stop any country and makes them stronger as a whole.

Advice For The New Girls

The author in this article kind of writes as if they were rules on how to live a University life for a girl. She is a student who writes down her thoughts on the new students (girls). So i think it would be a social commentary type of blog. She describes the young women being insecure, or babies as she says and how they behave, act or even how they shop for that matter. She sarcastically tells them how to take university life and how to survive it (which would be the truth i believe). In the end she says to use their brains that their Mama gave them.

Baby No More

This article i think would be a personal reflection type of blog. The author is a mother who writes about her daughter and how much she has grown and not a ‘baby no more’ She says her daughter now starts off sentences like “when I was a baby” and she thinks of it as her daughter isn’t a “baby” anymore. She writes about how her daughter will go into ‘big girl’ school and learn french and whatever they are going to be taught. In the end she says to her daughter its her special day and wished her a special Happy Birthday.

Another Gorilla died at Mont Tshiaberimu

 This article would be a journal entry/personal reflection and a documentary type of blog. The author is a tracker who cares deeply about the gorillas living in Mount Tshiaberimu. One very well-known gorilla Kanindo died in an accident where he fell into a ravine and stayed paralyzed for 4 days without food or water. He was the primary care-giver for a juvenile gorilla named Mukokya as he lost his father due to old age. Veterinarians tried to save him but only came to a conclusion that he can’t get better and he had passed on July 11th. He will be missed by the people and most likely to Mukokya.
