Sample introduction paragraph

Imagine you and your family live in Bangkok during the Great Flood of 2011. The waters are rising, breaching dykes and overflowing from the waterways of your city. Soon, the media says, the water will submerge the first floor of your house. What would you do? Would you escape out of the city? A lot of families in Bangkok have done just that—escaping from the city to the neighboring cities and towns of Pattaya, Cha Am, Hua Hin. Some have even escaped farther to other countries. All to escape the flooding in Bangkok. But does going away really solve any thing other than the fact you won’t get drenched? Escaping from Bangkok flooding is a way to stay dry, but it doesn’t really solve any of the problems that the flooding brings, because many problems remain, such as extra expenses, problems of water and food distribution, and the issues of submerged roads.
