Practice Opening

Even though the world has more than enough resources to eradicate polio, the disease will never be completely gone. Polio vaccinations historically create distrust within communities that need the immunization the most. Political unrest and wars provide a way so that the disease can continue to keep killing children. The current vaccination method takes three drops of the vaccination on the tongue and there is a risk for paralyzation. One out of three million children will be paralyzed and ethically that is not acceptable. The countries that are riddled with these diseases are typically poor and cannot afford the shot that gives no risk of paralyzation. The need for power between countries is prioritized over the lives of children so there will never be enough pull to find a resolution to this problem.

    Dude, that is one dark Sample Opening. You’re mostly clear about the several obstacles to eradication, but if you could go a step further, greatness is within your grasp. Do you recognize that different constituencies are responsible for the obstacles? If in a word or two you could identify who would need to be appeased in each case to eliminate the obstacle, that would be very persuasive.
