Where is the love? The black eye peas

TWhere is the Love? by Black Eye Peas

WALT identify the key ideas in a text

Success Criteria:
I can...
- find clues and evidence  to help determine the main ideas.
-combine clues and evidence to and link them to our prior knowledge to determine the main ideas.

Part of the song
What is the main idea(s) in this part of the song?
Give an example from the text that supports this idea.
Give another example from the text that supports this idea.
Express your viewpoint by synthesising what you have analysed.
-Do you agree with this part of the song? Why/why not?
Verse 1
The main idea in verse 1 is LOST and Hatred.
‘What’s wrong with the world mama People livin like they got no mama I think the whole world’s addicted to the drama”
“People only attracted to things that will bring you trauma.People joining gangs like the  big CIA, the
Bloods,the crips and the KKK”
The first verse to me is people a hating and are always lost in gangs.The problem is people is trying to be attention seekers.
The main idea in the chorus is how there is too much hate , bad fates , and agonising over what well it is all over the loss of life and purity.
“People Killing, People dying Children hurtin, hear them crying.
Can you practice what you preach Or would
yo turn the other cheek.
The chorus has some powerful words in it that makes the song appear very realistic like as if the problems in the world rise up from agonising hate , unfaithful fate , troublesome state , and from the love that is never there or the hope and dreams were stripped from the depths of our hearts.
Verse 2
The Main Idea in verse 2 is  Discrimination and Violence
“Not respecting eachother, denying thy brother, a war is going on, but the reasons undercover”
“Nations dropping bombs, chemical gases filling lungs of little ones”
Their family are so attached to drugs and other substances
Lua- I agree with what this verse is trying to say because all around the world there are still children getting hurt and people also going against their own skin colour/nation.

Unique- I admire what this verse and how it is explaining how people and young adults and teenages are being forced to be apart of crimes and bad influencing groups of society.
Verse 3
The main idea in verse 3 is about Selfishness
I feel the weight of the world on my shoulders,
Selfishness got us following the wrong direction.

Wrong information always shown by the media,
Most of us only care about money .

Verse 4
The main idea in verse 4 is the values, equality and fairness of humanity.
Whatever happened to the values of humanity
Whatever happened to the fairness and equality
Instead of spreading love
We spreading animosity
Lack Of Understanding
What is Humanity about ?, Well Humanity is about love, hope, belief, troubles, and solving everything from within the overall results of what happens in life and how it helps us to all overcome the hate that we once thought was the answer to our blunt prayers.

The Bush-Writing

Black leather boots marching in the clear dust of nature . Green surroundings have my sight as i hear hard thuds of a soldier.
“Muuuum can we STOP NOW!!!” Lisa Screeched. before mum could answer a low come from the right side of me”No! we must not stop,we must carry on so we can find the bush* before nightfall”   

We had walked 1/2 of a mile and still couldn't find the puzzling treasure. .Dark was growing and we were exhausted.We fought the hunger in our bellies.Nightfall  covered us like a umbrella keeping us dry.Dizzy heads walking back home with huge luggage. We were finally home.

I walked to dad and Said ”Sorry we couldn't the bush treasure”He looked at me confused and said”Son it don’t matter because you guys are my treasure.”

*My dad saw in a ad that the  golden  bush was a treasure, and who ever found would win 500,00 dollars also  4 passes to Hawaii for 5 weeks.Dad thought if he found it would be the best vacation ever so of we went.

Today My Life Begins
