the poor people have good stratigies of surviving. Wealthy people don't have to have worries about their kids and theirselves, unlike the poor people. Also, wealthy people don't have the same advantages because they're not experienced and the poor people are. That's how they are used to not being worried about their food , and the poor people have to so they can survive. Rich people have money and poor don't.

I have experiences of hunting , and with knives and bow and arrows. I got there because is the chosen one to go to the hunger games. I got there with my friend , Peeta. We both come from district 12 and were the only ones with the ugly clothes. I got to the capital because I'm going to the hunger games.

I would be nervous because it is the hunger games and its a fight to the death thing , so that means that you have to kill everyone so you can win and survive. Also, I would be scared because it is the first time going over there and you don't have experience of killing other people. In addition, you would want to escape and go as far as you can with your family so you don't have to go face your greatest nightmare because of the killing none sense . And I would also feel like it's going to be the end of life for me because I'm risking myself to it . This is all I would feel if I was Katness.
I haven't seen it because I wasn't in those places where people have to sacrifice for their punishments and painful things. I think that they get paid for the other persons place and the other person doesnt get paid for anything because he isn't doing the work. But I also feel bad because that person doesn't deserve to do it because it's the other person responsibility. Also, my dad had to do the same way thing to his brother but he liked it because it's his brother obviously. Ehh I would do it for my little bother too but it's tiring and I don't think I don't deserve it because of the work I put in in my other task. But like I said, I haven't been in that position like my dad was before.
