Write a draft of your opening paragraph based on Chapter 3.2 Opening Paragraphs from English Composition: Connect, Collaborate, Communicate

Our country has been impacted with a movement called “BLACK LIVES MATTER” a manifestation which was started after George Floyd was killed in May of this year by a Minneapolis Officer. African American people protested all over the country for weeks until they got justice for their beloved national. What is not different or less important is the disappearance and murder of Vanessa Guillen. A twenty-year-old U.S. Army Soldier with Mexican descendant who was missing since April and killed the same month at the armory room where she worked by one of her U.S. Army partners with a hammer. Her death body was recently found on the previous mentioned location, and I do not see a movement call “HISPANICS LIVES MATTER” or neither seen this on the news or at least not as much as Floyd’s case. In both cases a life was lost, and the same value must be given to them.
