(3) ALS News article response
Marilyn Adams creates a metaphor in her article about ALS being a terrorist. In a well-drafted response, react to the last two paragraphs of her news article. Then, respond to at least one of your classmate's responses.
Last two paragraphs of the article:
"If ALS were a terrorist group taking thousands of lives each year, this country would throw people and technology and money at it until we had won. Not so with this disease. There's no cure on the horizon, the doctors tell me.
It's like a terrorist in our midst, going strong."
