“It turns out the man was Simon Childs, 21, a homeless father who was resting between his shifts at the fast-food restaurant. Childs recently lost his mother and is raising a young son.” CBS Miami

Affect the Effect of Your Writing-
Two words that almost sound alike and save for one letter are spelled alike: affect and effect. But with different meanings that often enough novice and even experienced writers use incorrectly. I have some tips.
“Affect begins with “a” as do act (upon) and alter. Remember that!
Effect begins with “e” as do event and end (result). Remember that!” – Anthony Scialis
