Topic: Describe one event, idea, or person that
has influenced your understanding of the dark side of human
existence. This event, idea, or person doesn't have to be the most
or only influence on your views, just one influence. Examples
include an idea that you read in a book, a current event reported in
the news, a personal experience, a teacher, a relative, and so on.
You can write about something objective, such as a historical
person, a current event, or something you read in a book.
Alternatively, you can write about something from your personal
experience: something that happened to a friend, a family member, or
yourself, or something someone did.
