The Hunt for Missing Kids
15-year old Shawn Hornbeck, returned to his family after spending four years in captivity. Shawn, has decided to not only share his story with the world, but he has also dedicated time to encourage relatives and friends of loved ones, to not lose hope. He is a living example of hope for all.
I think that the reporter was challenged, because finding the angle of this story can be difficult. He could have written about many different things. He could have written about Hornbecks personal experience, but insead he focused on the after-math of Horbeck's experience. It is important to pick the right angle, when choosing the topic you are going to write on.
Pulling in smoe information on the personal experience of Horneck would have been very beneficial. Sometimes adding detailed background facts is important when you want a reader to connect.
