    RESPONSIBILITY ...

    a duty of an individual and the accountability of that individual to perform that duty.

     

    Our viewing of the film JOHN Q exposed the complexity of "responsibility."

    John's son, Mikey, needed a heart transplant to live. However,due to John's lack of medical coverage and financial resources, this became a daunting task.

    John had responsibility to help his son. He also had responsibility to keep himself safe.  He also had responsibility to follow the law.  The hospital shared responsibility to help Mikey as did the Doctor.  The insurance company also shared responsibility in this dilemma.

    Our paragraph writing will help us explore the literary devices the screenwriter used to help expose the concept of RESPONSIBILITY!!
