Analysis Return to your topic and present the logical conclusion of the evidence presented in your essay.
Clincher Ask yourself the question, “So what?” about your thesis and answer it by saying something important, interesting, or provocative that provides closure.
It can be seen, limited amounts of water, oil, and trees have all had their hand in creating difficulties for many countries. Daily life is affected by limited resources. Countries who experience hardships are often poor due to their limited resources. These countries, such as Zimbabwe, Ethiopia, and Kenya, all want to become the superpower like the U.S., but wither their inadequate resources, this is often impossible to do. We, as humans, have a responsibility to help others, so how should we help these poor countries? By giving them money? Food?
