Cassio is one of my closest friends. I trust him with my life and I know he feels the same. I don’t know what led him to act so foolishly. Why on earth did he attack that man, and then he hurt poor Montano. I heard that alcohol was involved, and that must be what influenced him. I do not like alcohol; when consumed in large amounts it transforms even the most respectable men into complete fools. I heard Othello had to break up the fight, and I am glad that he didn’t get hurt. I understand that Othello had to prove a point as general and demote Cassio. However, I also think that he deserves a second chance as lieutenant. All his good actions outweigh this bad one. It doesn’t make sense why Othello won’t forgive him. I made a promise to Cassio and I will fulfill it. I told him, “Be thou assured, good Cassio, I will do All my abilities in thy behalf…Do not doubt, Cassio, But I will have my lord and you again As friendly as you were.” (Act 3, Scene 3, Lines 1-2, 5-7). I realized that as the wife of the general, I am able toinfluence him if I need to. I am going to plead Cassio’s case to Othello and help him see that Cassio should be promoted back to his original position. Every time I bring up Cassio, Othello changes the subject. I don’t know whether he just doesn’t want to talk to me about his job or if he just doesn’t want to help his friend. I will break down his resistance until he agrees with me. I’m going to keep pestering Othello about Cassio , what’s the worst that could happen?
