“Emina Uzicanin was just 5 years old.
Her family was living on the outskirts of
Sarajevo. On a sunny afternoon in May,
Emina was playing in a field behind her
Uncle’s house. There, she spotted two
little rabbits. As soon as she started
toward them, the rabbits took off. So she
began running. Five feet. Ten feet. That’s
when it happened. An ear-shattering
explosion ripped through Emina’s body,
severing her left leg and leaving the rest
of her badly scarred. Every 22 minutes
another innocent civilian is killed or
maimed by a land mine. Right now there
are over 60 million unexploded land
mines waiting just beneath the earth in
nearly 70 countries. We need your help to
rid the planet of land mines and to help
its victims like Emina.”

with artificial limb – how
would that alter the ad’s
effect?
C. What is the literal and
metaphorical significance
of the bare branch?
