Empathy – Write a diary entry written by Buckingham at a dramatic point in the play Dear Diary, Today was a historic day and one that will be referred to as the day where evil was unleashed and hell was allowed to engulf the innocence of this oblivious world. The day where such actions were endorsed and were pursued with little remorse – these actions, pursued by the devil himself, our leader, a man with relentless power, a beast born without a conscience, born without a soul but yet a man who was born into royalty, a life of wealth and endless joy.
This man I speak of – is the man who I have been assisting throughout his assault, a man who I now realise is a villain – a cold hearted, inexorable, ruthless villain! This man I speak of is Richard, the person who has wished upon my death for a task that my conscience shall never permit me to pursue – a task that would cause such upset towards his family and my beloved country that I could no longer bare to face the endeavours of life. This task, I hear you ask, it is one that is unthinkable to us regular men, a task that would be frowned upon even by the most treacherous villain. A task that involves assassinating two young children and if this is not enough these two children are next in line to your countries throne – An act I believe to be named regicide.
Nevertheless – I lay here on my death bed in this somewhat luxurious prison cell imagining the terror that is being inflicted upon innocent people throughout this world by leaders just like Richard who have been born or have made their way into power but have made all the wrong decisions whilst in it. This leads me to look over my own life and I then realise how ignorant I have been and how if the right decisions were made then maybe this world would never of had to succumb to Richard’s conduct.
Because at the end of the day, there is good in this world but more often than not this good is overpowered by the bad and eventually the good will die out, just like the beloved King Edward, a man who relished peace and tranquillity and resented evil and misfortune, there are not many like him but if the human race is to survive as it should do then the overriding population needs to be like this and needs to fight evil and overcome it too.
I stand strong throughout this period of my life, where the only thing I can look upon is the occurrence of my death. And I can only imagine what I could of became had I agreed to kill the two princes -Nevertheless the chance of reprimand for me has departed so all I can do is hope, hope that there is someone who is born or makes their way into power that will make the right decisions and will change the world for the better and not the worse.
