Author's POV+Purpose

1.) What is the author's point of view?
The author's point of view is describing how we should treat the same terror that happened in other place that we know . One piece of evidence is 'Then suddenly a story about another terror attack popped up online. This time the attack was in Kenya." Another evidence is that "147 dead in terrorist attack on Kenya college," actress Bex Taylor-Klaus wrote. Several people quickly found an article on the attack written by the British Broadcasting Corp.news service. It was first published more than seven months ago, on April 3 2015." The last evidence is that " It is perhaps only natural that most Americans were more upset by the attack in Paris. Many Americans know Paris in a way they do not know Kenya and Beirut. Not many Americans have traveled to Kenya or Beirut. For that reason it is understandable that Americans did not react as much to the killings in those places."

2.) Do you agree or disagree with the author's point of view? Why?
I agree with the other because this is our world and we all love in it, so we need to care of places and people equally.

3.) What is the author's purpose?
The author's purpose is to inform about how people care more about other places that they attacked or that they know, than the attack on other places that we don't know and don't really care for the majority of people. "People are more likely to care when terrible things happen to people and places to which they feel close."
