In Albert Marrin’s excerpt, Flesh and Blood So Cheap, the Triangle Fire was a real tragedy of 146 people (mostly immigrant women) who died from jumping off the factory building, burning, or suffocating from the fire in the building. In this excerpt, Marrin uses explicit and implicit meanings to express that this tragedy was started by the little value of human life and lack of safety standards. For instance, sweatshop conditions were dangerous for workers in the early 1900s. As well as terrible conditions, no one was prepared whatsoever for this disastrous fire to happen. Even the firefighters were not organized or ready either!
In result of the mournful event, many people, especially Jews, did not want to take the disrespect anymore. To do this, many people would commit suicide. After the violence occurred people wanted to escape or forget about the terrible night. For instance, a Kristallnacht research site states “Jewish youngsters, like their parents, were totally segregated in Germany. In despair, many Jewish adults committed suicide.
Throughout our history we have had many tragic events and some of these events caused a very large amount of people to die or be mistreated. There were lots of people letting these acts be permitted because of their ignorance and pure hatred. The act of genocide and the extermination of groups of people happened because people were not speaking up against intolerance, hatred and propaganda. During the holocaust 6.3 million Jews died because of Greed,Hate,Silent Majority,and Propaganda, leading to genocide. The Holocaust was an event that had a big impact on our history.
The terrorist attacks on 9/11 have caused many debates over the years since they occurred back in 2001. Two American planes were hijacked and ran into the twin tower buildings, another was hijacked and headed for the pentagon, but thankfully never made it. Thousands of Americans lost their lives on the days of the attacks and to this day the sorrow hangs with us. Security was a huge debate of the time because America is supposed to be the safest nation there is, so how did this happen? America had lots of changes to make the attacks on September 11, 2001.
The bombings at Hiroshima and Nagasaki are still the only instances of nuclear weapons being used on humans, an irreproachable act alone. However, the fact that the bomb was used primarily on civilians, not military, makes it much worse. Especially considering that the people of Japan had no democratic rights to oppose a war with the US. The complete decimation of whole neighborhoods and families left deep holes in people’s lives. The bomb created profound mental and physical ailments for many Japanese.
President Bush used personification to mourn the victims that were involved with the tragedy. “For the children whose world has been shattered” (Bush 2) gives characteristics to a world being shattered for not just the kids but for all of the people that were effected by the incident. Not only did the world of kids shatter but so did the worlds of many, many adults. Friends, family members, neighbors, spouses, and really close related people were lost due to the terrorists trying to make a statement and impose fear into the people of the United States. The two rhetorical devices that President Bush attributed into the speech of 9-11 focuses on the mourning of the victims and the strength of the United States.
In Caesar’s last breaths the readers and/or audience were able to understand and feel the complete and utter shock and betrayal Caesar was feeling as he muttered “et tu, Bruté?” in his final moments (3.1.85). Skylar’s last word was “why?” which was very similar to Caesar’s , however, the circumstances though alike were not the same as Caesar’s death took place a couple thousands years before (Sandt). Both of them were shocked and hurt in that moment as they realized their best friends had turned on them. This makes betrayal still very relevant today because, similar to Skylar Neese and Julius Caesar, people are constantly being betrayed by the people kept close in life. Skylar Neese, unsuspecting like Caesar, had gone to enjoy a night with her friends that ended in her death.
Eulogy for Okonkwo by Nowye this whole eulogy stuff bs and i don't know why we are doing this haha.a. When my father Okonkwo died, inside i felt despair and anger. With him being my father i obviously was very saddened to find out that he had hung himself. Though i am very saddened about our loss of Okonkwo i am sickened by the way he passed, He knew committing suicide in our town is very much against what we believe in here at Umuofia. Okonkwo knew this before he took his own life, which does not make much sense to me because he wanted to become leader of the clan for a very long time, but then took his life in such a dishonorable way.
The potential of nuclear war stirred genuine fear amongst all nations. This particular event in time was an issue for the whole world and was known as The Cold War. Countries created nuclear weapons at an alarming rate, storing their power as a threat to other nations (Zazen Life, 2016). Luckily no one had the motivation to utilise any of their bombs, however, this whole period of time was extremely wasteful, undermined the economy and contributed to its eventual
What completely consumed him now was the fact that what he had to face every day in that camp was much worse than what he had imagined. This piece of the text can lead the reader to infer that even though it was no longer night and the sun was in the sky, darkness took the place of Wiesel’s soul, which had been destroyed by the flame of hopelessness. There was no trace of the devoted, faithful, and religious kid. Wiesel not only went through an emotional and spiritual death, but he also lost his identity and sense of self. One real-world scenario in which an individual dies spiritually and emotionally and loses the notion of who they are is when a
