    Something that really caught my eye is that you were very steady with your voice in your video. I appreciate how you took time to find the right words for your video because it really painted pictures in my head. To me your topic sentence and the thesis didn’t exactly make sense it was a little confusing. I’m wondering if you have any other reasons on why you picked to do Guinea Worm? Good job!

    I never knew the Guinea Worm was such a big issue! I really appreciate how you included many pictures providing me with a better sense of how the Guinea Worm affects people’s day to day life. You mentioned that “The best known way of getting rid of the Guinea Worm is long and painstaking.” Do you think there could be a way of getting rid of this parasite in an easier and more efficient manner? I am also curious about how the number of people with Guinea Worm was reduced so rapidly in such a short period of time. What was Jimmy Carter’s role in the reduced levels? This article has inspired me to learn more about the Guinea Worm and its rapid reduce rates.

    Really good job! I really appreciated all the pictures you included. Your video had a ton of information and was really interesting. Maybe try to include a little more information in the text section of your blog? I was really surprised by how greatly the number of people with Guinea Worm decreased in only a couple of years. I also thought it was really interesting how small the Guinea Worm actually is, and how much bigger grows inside the human body!
