Dam Paragraph

Dams can do many positive things for people. It can control flooding and can even slow down the effects of erosion. Dams can create reservoirs if there is a drought. Building a dam in a dry area can lead to the effects of life and death. Dams can create free electricity for homing and businesses. Which would you want most: electricity and power for anyone's needs, or floods that could take the lives of innocent people and loved ones?? Let me say this: not agreeing with dams now, could be one of the biggest mistakes of your life.

Seth this is a very persuasive argument, one of my favourites from your entire class. I really like the way you've organised your ideas and used language to illustrate your points.
