Can someone please help correct my grammars?





In "Ground Zero" Suzanne Berne describing her trip to Manhattan’s financial district to pay her compliments, where the World Trade Center used to be located. On that day many people arrived from different locations to do the same thing as the author and to see "the wide emptiness where so many were lost". My critical response to this reading assignment is that I think it is sad now when we look at the place where World Trade Center used to be at because "the space that is now ground zero". It must be very heartbreaking to look at the Twin Towers now because it is just a construction site. I think that the author did a very good job for describing all the senses: sight, hear, touch, smell, and taste in this essay. An example of sight is "But to the out-of-towner, ground zero looks at first simply like a construction site. All the familiar details are there: the wooden scaffolding; the cranes; the bulldozers and forklifts; the trailers and construction workers in hard hats; even the dust." An example of hear is "There is the pound of jackhammers, the steady beep-beep-beep of trucks backing up, the roar of heavy machinery." An example of touch is "Finally he touched his son’s elbow and said: I watched those towers being built. I saw this place when they weren’t there." An example of smell is "Back I walked, up Fulton Street, the smell of fish in the air, to wander around St. Paul’s." And finally, an example of taste is the part that the author describing her pastrami sandwich and the consideration of herself as she ordered the sandwich. Overall, I think this essay is very well written because the author uses lots of details to describing what going on at the construction site of the World Trade Center which help us to picture out the scenes and the pain that the visitors feel when looking at it.

    In “Ground Zero”, Suzanne Berne described her trip to Manhattan’s financial district to pay her respects where the World Trade Center was located. On that day, many people arrived from different locations to do the same thing as the author and to see “the wide emptiness where so many were lost”.My critical response to this reading assignment is that I think it is sad that the place where World Trade Center was destroyed because “the space that is now ground zero”. It is heartbreaking to look at the place now because it is just a construction site. I think that the author did a good job by describing all the senses: sight, hear, touch, smell, and taste in her essay.An example of sight is, “But to the out-of-towner, ground zero looks at first simply like a construction site. All the familiar details are there: the wooden scaffolding; the cranes; the bulldozers and forklifts; the trailers and construction workers in hard hats; even the dust.” Sound is typified by, “There is the pound of jackhammers, the steady beep-beep-beep of trucks backing up, the roar of heavy machinery.” Touch is shown where she describes a father and son’s experience, “Finally he touched his son’s elbow and said: ‘I watched those towers being built. I saw this place when they weren’t there.’” Smell is brought out in the statement, “Back I walked, up Fulton Street, the smell of fish in the air, to wander around St. Paul’s.” She continues to explain her reactions where she describes her pastrami sandwich and her self-consideration as she ordered it.Overall, this essay is well-written because the author uses details of her impressions to describe the scenes. These details enable us to form mental pictures not only of the place, but also the emotions of visitors that she observes.(hope that helps)
