BTN #3 Federation

It was only 116 years ago that Australia became a whole county. A lot of people were debating it because they thought that new south wales and Victoria would have all the power because they had they most population in their states. the reason why they wanted to join to make one whole country is because they be stronger if all their army joint together and because trading would be a lot more effective. when each state ran as their own you couldn’t even take a train from Victoria to Brisbane because the train tracks were different sizes. I understand why all the states formed together to make a stronger community. Why were the aboriginals so left out, were they a threat to the British?

BTN/ Convicts Stealing #2

When the convicts were sent off to Australia a lot of people though they had it easy, they worked for a period of time building, and once the had served there sentence they got to live a life there. This made people in Britten want to be transported so they did crime and purposely got caught. The ruler of England didn’t want that so instead of sentencing them transportation they would just put weights on their necks, wrists and ankles to make it really hard to walk. some people even die from the pain. In the jails a lot of people got sick and it spread. I understand why a lot of people wanted to  be transported because poor people in Britten had to steal to survive and if they got caught they would have horrible punishments that can lead to death. Why didn’t they just transfer all the criminals to Australia? If they did they would get a lot more done there.

I walk in my old house and think of the memories I’ve had over the years. there was the statue of the bird where I saved it from a fire. There was a statue of my uncle Joe, he was my favorite uncle. But the best one of all was my best friend Sam. He past away a few years ago and I never ever regret anything about him. I have a quiet moment just thinking about what we have done together and give my best wishes to him. I really did love him.

as the flame flickered and then went out it just made the situation worse and my heart races faster and faster. I’m on the floor looking around me, making sure nothing pops out of the dark. I hear the floor squeaking like something is coming towards me, wind fills the air outside and a bolt lightning shines through the house and I see a man in the corner but only for a split second as the lightning goes away. Another strike of lightning comes and I see the man about ten meters closer. I make my escape but don’t know where the man will be next…
