EXEMPLAR BLOG: Act II scene iii


WHEN REDOING BLOGS WRITE: Italian first name, Your last name, class period, and FINAL DRAFT

Friar Lawrence is a wise and generous man. He has a vast knowledge in the power of herbs and is a fine apothecary. He once told me about the how herbs have fine qualities and healing powers – even ones who seem to be the most fatal. He said that too much of anything, even something good, can be dangerous when misused. It is hard to believe that our Mother Earth can produce so many plants that can both aid and destroy us! Friar Lawrence's intelligence is astounding; his exceeds mine, even with the amount of education I have received in my earlier years. Friar Lawrence is the most selfless man I know. Whenever I call upon him, he always seems to have time to listen to my worries and advise me on such matters. He never does anything in haste, and I can only believe that he is truly the best person to visit. I have called on Friar several times throughout my lifetime – he has always managed to lift me out of any conflict I have had. I know that he will never share any of our secrets. He is trustworthy and never have I witnessed an act where he has violated one's trust. Almost every citizen in Verona knows the Friar, and I am sure all of Verona will agree with me as well on Friar's character.
