                                        Louis' young and old personalities

When Louis Zamperini was young, he beat kids up, and was confused about his life. He lived a wild life and always seemed scared. Louis began running as an outlet to use his energy in a positive way. After Louis matured, he became a strong man, and helped his friends when in need. He was a wise leader and was able to face his problems patiently and with determination.

Louis Zamperini fought in World War II, and got shot down by the enemy and was lost at sea. A Japanese ship captured him and his friend and took them to a POW

camp. He survived the camp because he had patience, determination, bravery, and

hard work.

I am really interested in Louis Zamperini, because he has such a great story. But, there wasn't a whole lot of information on it and I was confused because the graphic organizer would be in the middle of the paragraph. I don't think all of the required elements were there, because there were three pictures, which was required, but no other chosen text features. This is a truly inspiring story, I just feel that it is missing some information and some required parts.

I heard about the movie and book Unbroken and I was wondering if anyone was going to do Louis Zamperini. Your images are detailed and tells me a lot about the story.
