Walt: Consider both sides of an argument.
"Being famous and/or rich would make me happy"
I partly agree with this statement because if I was famous/rich it could help me travel the world to help others who don’t live in safe places, give to the people who need clean and fresh water or just lend a helping to those who need good shelter and homes. Being famous/rich could also help me to inspire others to work hard and reach for their dreams especially those who suffer from severe conditions and can’t do what most people can. I could also live an easier life because if I was famous and/or rich I could earn heaps of money. I would be living in a pleasing house that is maintained by housekeepers, gardeners, cooks and other servants to help me. This goes to show that being famous and/or rich can make me feel happy because I’m basically rich, I can give to the homeless and have a happy life!
Yet there are still a few things that would make me feel miserable about being famous and or rich. I have to worry about my safety because I have to go through threatening messages saying that someone wants to kill me. But it’s not only my safety that I have to worry about it’s also my family’s safety. Speaking of family I can have a hard time because I would have to be away from them so much because of things like meetings and TV interviews. Online gossip is also one thing that would bother me while being famous/rich. There are a lot of untruthful things that go around on the internet which could also ruin my career just because of haters.
Overall I think that I would be famous and/or rich because of the benefit of helping others in need and also to support my family with what they need help with but only for a period of time.
