[CRIT] To The Greeks; Financial Troubles

To the Greeks;

 As it is widely known, Greece has been having financial troubles. For years this
brilliant country has been in denial about their problems, but these past few months
reality has hit them hard. Rioting has ruined  the beauty of Greece's streets and the
deaths have shattered many over the country. With Greece being so in debt, the EU(Europe
Union) is debating whether or not they should loan Greece the money they need.
      Back here in the states, some say that the people of Greece are greedy. That they
should work for the money they need as hard as they riot for what they want. Some say that
the Greek government is spending the tax money on selfish things, rather then paying it to
those they owe. I personally don't care which is true. All I care about is the people of
Greece realizing they need help and they can't get help with the riots.
     Taking a step into a bit of history here, has it not been proved countless times you
can be peaceful when fighting for what you want? Martin Luther King Jr. proved that
fighting is not always the answer when it comes to getting your way. He proved that you
can peacefully fight, rather then kill people to get your way. With this in mind,
shouldn't Greece do the same thing?
      Not to be blunt, but Greece needs money. We all do. For the people of the U.S., you
may be wondering how Greece contributes to your well being. I mean, they are a country in
Europe, they must mean nothing, correct? Wrong. Greece is part of Europe, the continent
which we depend on for many of our imports. If one part of Europe falls, it is bound to
affect Europe as a whole. Many may think that Asia and China rule the import world, but
that is not correct. We depend on France and Germany for many things as well, so in the
long run, this will affect the United States.

I find it almost as hard to critique non-fiction writing as I do poetry, but I like
writing where instead of posing one side of an argument, you only state the facts. I find
it a lot harder to read that way, especially if I'm not on the side the author is.
If this were like, a summary for a project, It would be a good summary for a project. :D

Thankies!~*~ I usually hate writing non-fiction, but the rioting got me in the mood XD I
had to keep backspacing, because I kept trying to type 'GIVE GREECE MONEY OR I WILL FIND
YOU!' :/

PRAISE THE NON-FICTION WRITTER IN YOU! By my view it doesn't even seem like you dislike writting non-fiction, let alone hate! I can see the love you have for this topic though- it makes you seem like a natural. The whole piece seemed like a very well written newspaper article. Like what Orange Soda said- its hard to critique writting that has just plain facts in. So i won't try. JUST know your piece seemed like an article more so- and though isn't completely 'balanced' its very fact-ful. :D I don't live in Europe but even so you make me feel bad for it in that sympathetic way.

Forgive; Thank you so much! I do really love Greece, with my heart and soul XD Thank you
for your sweet comment, it made my day! I don't live in Europe either, but Greece is my
favorite place in the world<3 I just had to write about the riots in it. Goodness, it's
terrible! The police are throwing tear gas at everyone, and if you didn't have a gas mask
on you'd get sick because of all the smoke. Thanks again!~*~
